Step aside, Cherry Garcia. Full Tilt Ice Cream has developed an ice cream flavor for storied grunge band Mudhoney, and the band — fresh off a 25th anniversary show with Pearl Jam — will play at the indie shop’s flagship branch in White Center on Wednesday.
Justin Cline and Ann Magyar, co-owners of the hangout known for creative local flavors and pinball games, are longtime Mudhoney fans. Cline said he had a friend at Sub Pop Records who helped him get in touch with frontman Mark Arm to see if band members would be into having their own dessert. He brought down some samples, band members picked the favorite, and they wound up doing honey cinnamon with a fudge swirl. “We use Shipwreck honey, which is a hyper local honey producer here in West Seattle,” Cline said.
More or less as a joke, Cline said, he then told band members that if they ever wanted to play an ice cream shop to let him know.More
