Tampa Bay flipped when Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams announced that the chain was opening locations at Sparkman Wharf in Channelside and The Pearl in Tampa Heights.

The concept’s Sparkman Wharf location has been serving up signature flavors since July, but beginning Monday, September 21, it’ll have a special scoop on deck: Pluto Bleu.

The new scoop is the product of a collaboration with rapper Tyler, The Creator (who earfquaked Tampa's Yuengling Center last fall).  

This is the second team-up with the artist, as last year the duo created “Snowflake,” a two-colored study of mint. The flavor went viral on social media, earning nearly a million likes on Instagram and selling over 4,000 pints on day one and 20,000 scoops in the first week. Damn, that’s a lot of ice cream. Needless to say, it was Jeni’s most successful collaboration in history. 

This year’s flavor, Pluto Bleu, is described as “electric orange with a bolt of blue.” According to a release by the scoop shop, “Jeni used her gift as an artist to turn Tyler’s words into a resonant ice cream flavor that he loves.”

Just a heads up, Pluto Bleu is a limited-run flavor, so don’t sleep on getting your taste. 

You can snag your scoop or pint beginning September 21 at the Jeni’s location stationed at Sparkman Wharf (615 Channelside Dr., Tampa).
