I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Yes, ice cream is one of those foods that everyone just universally loves. It’s tasty, it’s refreshing, and there are just so many flavors to choose from. Whether you like to stick to the simple flavors and opt for chocolate or strawberry, or whether you like to branch out a little and try something a bit more exotic, there is always something for you to enjoy. However, have you ever wondered which are the weirdest ice cream flavors of all time?
Corn on the cob
We all love corn on the cob, right? But would you want to eat it in ice cream form? Well, if this does strike your fancy, you can make your way to New York to try this corny, buttery goodness. That’s because Max & Mina’s, located in Queens, has created some of the most bizarre ice cream flavors in the world – and corn of the cob is just one of them. Amazingly, it’s a hugely popular choice for those who don’t have the biggest sweet tooth.
Bourbon & corn flakes
If you’re not a fan of corn but love corn flakes, then you could be in for a treat. At the Humphry Slocombe ice cream parlor in San Francisco, they offer all kinds of flavors. Yet, their most popular flavor is Secret Breakfast. Made with corn flakes and bourbon, it’s like your very own drink and breakfast in one (or ten) scoops. However, if you do want to taste this weird ice cream flavor, you’ll need to get there when it opens, because it sells out every single day.
Raw horse flesh
It’s no secret that people in Japan aren’t exactly fussy eaters, but we do have to question their choice in ice cream. If you ever find yourself in Tokyo and need a refreshing tub or cone of ice cream, we’d suggest making your way to the Namja Town indoor amusement park. At Ice Cream City, you can eat a wide variety of flavors that will definitely give your taste buds a shock. Yes, they do include a raw horse flesh flavor.
Fig & fresh brown turkey
The ice cream makers at Il Laboratorio del Gelato in New York City will make ice cream out of anything, and they’re not afraid to try something new. That’s how they came across a weird and wonderful flavor that people actually love. Using fig and fresh brown turkey to create their new ice cream, they had no idea that the combination of sweet fruit and meat would prove to be so popular.
Lobster isn’t for everyone, but it seems as though the residents near Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in Maine love their lobster prepared in a certain fashion. While the name of the emporium would suggest all things chocolate, this parlor actually deals with some of the wackiest concoctions around. One of their sell-out flavors is their lobster ice cream, which is made using a butter ice cream that’s been laden with fresh, buttery lobster.
Would you be brave enough to try one of these weird ice cream flavors?
