We All Scream For Ice Cream!

De Gustibus Non Est Disputandum!

I ran across this web site that lists 101 oddball flavors of ice cream.

I'd call bullsh!t on some of the flavors, except that I've seen 'em with my own eyes. If you go to any of the larger Asian supermarkets, they'll have 20-30 of these flavors in their freezer. Not quite Ben & Jerry. More like Nguyen & Minh Thuy.

I'm just seriously ooked out by most of these. Somebody bring me a Dairy Queen dipped cone to get these tastes out of my head!

Mmmmm... howzabout a double dip cone of raw horseflesh & squid gut!

(Note: I will confess to having eaten garlic ice cream... It was at a garlic-themed restaurant in London, Ontario. They caramelized the garlic, swirled it in a syrup to form a candy shell around the garlic bits, then mixed it in the ice cream. If you've ever had roasted garlic, you'll be familiar with the smooth mellow flavor, unlike the sharp pungency of raw garlic. It was... a unique flavor. I'd eat it again, but it won't ever displace mint chocolate chip...

84. Cold Sweat Ice Cream. Along with milk, sugar and the other usual ingredients, this ice cream is made with three kinds of peppers and two kinds of hot sauce. It’s so spicy that just touching it makes your fingers feel hot. It’s not a top seller. One of the ice cream shop’s regular customers said it tasted like, “fire - with a side of fire.”

85. Chicken Fried Steak Ice Cream. Ever wondered what happens if you mesh fried steak and ice cream together? introduces a new way to screw up your diet quickly and easily. It's basically frying a piece of steak with egg, butter, sugar, and milk, and topping it off with an ice cream scoop.

86. Nogger Black Ice Cream. The world’s first racist ice cream! This is a liquorice flavored version of the classic nougat-flavored “Nogger.”

90. Mushroom Ice Cream
91. Mushroom-Pecan Ice Cream

I think I might just hurl after all that...
