There's a fine line between soft-serve ice cream and steaming cups of broth — and that line is Michigan winters.
To make the seasonal transition smooth and soupy, Huddle soft-serve has partnered with Southwest Detroit's Johnny Noodle King to offer cups of broth out of its downtown Detroit walk-up window instead of their towering, frosty, sprinkle-topped soft-serve cones, Eater Detroit reports.
The broth-slinging begins Nov. 1 and will end sometime in February 2021, and will include pork, chicken, and veggie broth with mix-in options like burnt garlic miso and soaked butter. Broth will come in 12-ounce cups and will cost $6.
Don't worry, ice cream freaks: Huddle will still offer pints of soft-serve as a to-go option.
Huddle opened in 2019 in the former Chickpea in the D window, with Gather's Lea and Kyle Hunt at the helm. The goal was to offer simple soft-serve selections as a “nostalgic” and “humble” and happy pick-me-up. In addition to cones and cups, they also offer cold brew floats made with Red Hook coffee, as well as Coke, Vernors, and Faygo Rock'N Rye floats.
