So, when we heard that Wanderlust Creamery in Los Angeles created a bunch of Game of Thrones-inspired flavors we got there faster than Lord Varys crossing the Narrow Sea!

Of course, we didn't come to Wanderlust JUST to look at how pretty all of the ice cream was — we HAD to try it all, too. YES. All of it. And here's what we thought...

What's in it: Oatmeal ice cream swirled with a house-made honey caramel, spiked with Islay Scotch.

What's in it: Oatmeal ice cream swirled with a house-made honey caramel, spiked with Islay Scotch.

Farrah: This is a VERY rich flavor. It’s thick, and the oatmeal and caramel make for a good combination. If you have a sweet tooth and like to indulge, you won’t be disappointed here.

Crystal: The caramel flavor in this is STRONG. Like, Khal Drogo strong. But, there's a surprising oatmeal aftertaste and I...love it? It's like eating French toast as an ice cream and there's nothing wrong with that!

What's in it: French coquelicot liqueur made from wild red poppy flowers, grassfed dairy, and a sprinkling of poppy seeds.

What's in it: French coquelicot liqueur made from wild red poppy flowers, grassfed dairy, and a sprinkling of poppy seeds.

Farrah: I love the color of this one. It’s a delicate mix of a light cotton candy flavor that’s sweet, but not too sweet.

Crystal: First of all, this is a very pretty ice cream. Look at it! I know they described this as cotton candy-flavored, but I got a very strong Smarties candy vibe?! There was ALMOST a medicine-y aftertaste too, but not in a bad way, just a very unexpected way! TBH, makes sense since milk of the poppy on the show is quite literally a medicine.

What's in it: Lemon verbena ice cream speckled with rose crystals, marigolds, and candied bergamot orange.

What's in it: Lemon verbena ice cream speckled with rose crystals, marigolds, and candied bergamot orange.

Farrah: This is sweeter than I thought it would be, but not in a bad way. It’s a super unique flavor that you absolutely will not be able to find in the ice cream aisle at a grocery store. The rose crystal toppings were a nice touch too — and reminded us both of Fruity Pebbles.

Crystal: This flavor was a journey for my mouth. At first, i was like, "Oh, this definitely tastes like Froot Loops mixed with flowers and oranges," and I thought it was just a pretty ice cream masquerading as a bomb-ass ice cream. But by the end of it all, I was like, "Wait. This IS a bomb-ass ice cream!"

What's in it: A vegan, dairy-free sorbet of dark dark chocolate and Russian Imperial stout beer.

What's in it: A vegan, dairy-free sorbet of dark dark chocolate and Russian Imperial stout beer.

Farrah: FYI, this flavor is VEGAN. And it’s so, so good. I think it might be my second favorite, but that’s because I am such a huge dark chocolate fan. Because it’s a sorbet, you can eat the entire thing without feeling sick to your stomach, whereas other dark chocolate ice creams are usually TOO rich for me. The flavor was perfect.

Crystal: I love everything dark chocolate, so this was a no-brainer for me. It's not too sweet, and the beer flavor was very subtle. If the Night's Watch made ice cream in their downtime they would 100% make this.

What's in it: A sorbet of dragon fruit, blood orange, and fiery ancho chili.

What's in it: A sorbet of dragon fruit, blood orange, and fiery ancho chili.

Farrah: My favorite. Hands down. I think foodies might be interested in this flavor specifically because it’s so unique and interesting. There’s a wonderful punch of spice from the ancho chili, which reminds me of tamarind candy. But since it’s a sorbet it’s cool and refreshing all at once!! Truly living up to the name.

Crystal: This was an amaaaaazing ice cream. It seems like a very "LA" flavor and it's definitely the most unique ice cream flavor I've ever tasted. Like Farrah said, it reminded me of tamarind candy! Jon and Dany would've totally eaten this post-sex.

What's in it: Custard ice cream, swirled with house-made spiced plum jam.
Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed

What's in it: Custard ice cream, swirled with house-made spiced plum jam.

Farrah: As soon as I took a bite, I was like, “This flavor reminds me of the holidays.” I think the fact that the plums are spiced contributes to that. It’s both creamy and fruity at the same time, so if you’re into Creme Savers then you’ll like this one.

Crystal: This is a very festive flavor (spiced plum jam!) and I felt very ~fancy~ eating it. It's VERY indulgent because of the custard, so unless you're as brave as Oberyn and Ellaria, be warned!

What's in it: Alderwood-smoked sea salt, dark chocolate ice cream, with trails of house-made vanilla bean, marshmallow creme, and smoked almonds.

What's in it: Alderwood-smoked sea salt, dark chocolate ice cream, with trails of house-made vanilla bean, marshmallow creme, and smoked almonds.

Farrah: There’s a fun spin to this otherwise classic flavor, which is the smoked almonds! You can taste the smokiness in each bite. Other than that, it’s a creamy and sweet and chocolatey like most other rocky road flavors.

Crystal: Is this delicious? Yes. Do I love the name? Yes. What more is there to say — beats getting a golden crown any day, ya know.

What's in it: Marscapone ice cream swirled with a house-made jam of blackberry wine, red currants, and wild forest berries.

What's in it: Marscapone ice cream swirled with a house-made jam of blackberry wine, red currants, and wild forest berries.

Farrah: This one was pretty good! Like the Candied Plums, it’s also both fruity and creamy. And very rich. It just wasn’t a home run for me since the other flavors were so different and complex!

Crystal: I LOVED the berries in this one, big berry fan over here. It's a little too rich for me because of how creamy the marscapone is. But, if you wanna feel bougie, this is definitely the way to go!

So, which ones were our favorites?

Crystal Ro / BuzzFeed, Farrah Penn / BuzzFeed

Farrah: A Flavor of Fire + Ice was my fave from the get-go. The taste was unlike anything I’d had before and I kept going back for MORE.

Crystal: I initially thought Dragon Glace was going to be my favorite, but I ended up loving Growing Strong the best. The flavor is both delicious and SUPER unique, plus it's a gorgeous scoop to look at! Olenna Tyrell would definitely approve!
