Handcrafted Delights at The Orange Octopus
Their ice cream is hand-churned on-site with all-natural ingredients like fresh dairy. This fun, family-owned local business puts an innovative twist on the classic flavors. Their masterpiece, the Orange Squeeze, will delight your taste buds and memories of sunny, citrusy summer days in Florida.
With 28 different flavors to choose from at The Orange Octopus Sarasota, everyone in your party will find something irresistible and delicious. Their ice creams have so much flavor packed into them that they’re saturated with color. The raspberry sorbet has so many raspberries in it that it is a full-on, fire-engine red. The sea salt caramel has ribbons of gooey caramel running through it like the Mighty Mississippi. You can see the chunks of peanut butter in the chocolate peanut butter. Have you ever had bourbon ice cream? Well, now you can have it. The Kentucky honey bourbon is made with real bourbon, clover honey, and pecan praline. Ice cream doesn’t get any more Southern than that! How about gooey brownie? Brownie batter ice cream is swirled with chunks of baked brownies. If you like butterscotch, the butterscotch blast is a must, with brownies, heath bars, chocolate-coated pretzels, and butterscotch swirls blended in. Another favorite is the Key lime pie, with its homemade pie and graham cracker crust whipped in.
If you have a birthday in your group, try the birthday cake ice cream when you visit The Orange Octopus Sarasota! Cake batter ice cream with chunks of homemade baked cake, swirls of frosting, and a confetti of sprinkles make this festive ice cream a must for that special day. Of course, they also have the tried-and-true favorites like vanilla, chocolate, Dutch chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip, and cookie dough. But no matter what you order, you’ll want to go back to try their other delectable ice creams the next day!
