Plus, for a limited time and while supplies last, Salt & Straw shops will offer a black "Haunted Waffle Cone." Flavors are available through October 31 by the scoop ($6.25) or by the pint ($12.50) at the Wynwood and Coconut Grove locations as well as for local delivery on UberEats and DoorDash or national delivery on saltandstraw.com.
