It seems that nothing is sacred from chefs these days. I’m all for using the most that our environment offers in the way of foodstuffs but sometimes their experiments are just mad and when they mess about with my idea of ice cream I need a scoop just to cool me off. Here’s just a few whacky flavours that are not only the result of chefs acting as mad professors but also international dishes that may have been around for ages.
1. Cheese Ice cream
Eww. I love cheese but if you’ve ever eaten a grated bit of cheddar off your frozen pizza you’ll know it’s not that tasty. Cheese ice cream comes from The Philippines.
2. Octopus Ice Cream
I didn’t put this one first because I didn’t want to you to throw up at the very first suggestion. Known as Taco Aisu, of course it can only come from Japan. It is real octopus meat in a cherry ice like a slush puppy. The list of weird stuff that the Japanese mix into their ice cream is stupendous. I could go on for hours. Next time you have an ice cream craving how about squid ink, horseflesh, shark fin, seaweed or whale? If they don’t tickle your fancy, maybe Viagra flavor will.
3. Spaghetti and Cheese Ice Cream
Found in a Venezuelan shop that sold over 900 flavours. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
