Top 5 Weirdest Ice Cream Flavors Around the World
For most of us, ice cream has been a staple favorite dessert ever since our dear childhood days. Memories of warm summer afternoons filled with fun and games are never complete without a nice huge cone (or cup) of ice cream. This frozen milky delight will always remain on top of my favorite sweet foods and I’m sure a lot of you will agree with me.
Ice cream is very versatile when it comes to the flavors. From fruity flavors such as strawberry, mango, and blueberry to richer ones such as coffee or milk tea flavors, almost any sweet food can be turned into an ice cream flavor. However, did you know that different countries from around the globe have incorporated some, uh, unconventional flavors into ice cream? Today, we will be taking a look at the top 5 weirdest ice cream flavors around the world! Let’s begin!
Flavor 1: Octopus Ice Cream
Who knew that this tasty Cephalopod could be eaten as a sweet and creamy dessert? Not me! The Japanese (of course) have created this wonderfully strange flavor which has a “sweet, and mildly chewy” texture that people seem to love. As strange as it sounds, Octopus Ice Cream seems to have quite a huge number of fans not only in Japan but also from other countries. If you’re the mildly adventurous type, you can try out this ice cream called Taco Aisu.
Flavor 2: Cheeseburger Ice Cream
Cheeseburger is a nice and filling meal for those on the go types of people. It’s convenient, it’s delicious, it’s easy to eat, and it’s basically the symbol of the Western food culture. But surprise! This meat-and-cheese-in-between-bread meal can either appeal to you or it can make you turn around and book it out of the restaurant. It depends on your adventurousness!
This ice cream can be found in Venezuela, specifically at Heladeria Coromoto ice cream parlour. Check them out if you’re a fan of cheeseburger!
Flavor 3: Bacon Ice Cream
Bacon is an essential part of a good breakfast. It’s chewy and salty goodness along with its oh-so-enticing aroma will make even the deepest sleepers rise up from their deep slumbers. But will it go well with ice cream? Apparently, a bunch of people from the United States think that mixing egg custard with bacon chips. While it may sound strange, it’s quite delicious! It’s sweet and salty and the bacon’s rough texture really goes well with the cream’s smoothness. Try it out!
Flavor 4: Charcoal Ice Cream
Now this one’s a bit, no, VERY strange. This grey/black ice cream also originated from Japan and it looks so metal. It’s as if someone looked at a pile of coal and thought “Hmm, I wonder what that tastes like when served cold.” Needless to say, this one is a must-try if you’re the type who loves the color black!
Flavor 5: Breastmilk Ice Cream
Okay. I know what you’re thinking and I’m sure we have something similar in mind. What. The. Heck. Breastmilk, while highly encouraged by doctors to be fed to children, isn’t really something that adults think of ingesting. Apparently, an ice cream shop from London thinks otherwise. The ice cream flavor named “Baby Gaga” has been criticized by many. Still, it’s an interesting concept!
