Summer is just around the corner and everyone is gearing up for it whether it be stocking up on shorts and tanks, Summer drinks or ice cream. Here you will find 5 weird ice cream flavors that just might intrigue you, that or it will gross you out. Check them out below.
We all love bacon and we all love ice cream but do we love them together? Above is a picture of rum-flavored ice cream combined with candied bacon bits created by David Lebotvitz. It doesn’t look too appealing right now but it is a very interesting combination!
Everyone loves a juicy corn cob on a hot Summer day and combining it with ice cream will just give it double the sweetness. Kevin from Toronto simmered a whole corn cob in heavy cream and milk and added corn kernels, sugar, vanilla extract and egg yolk thus creating this unique yet sweet flavor.
This flavor of ice cream may only intrigue the seafood lovers because I know I hate it already. Above is a picture of squid-ink flavored ice cream served on a waffle cone. The texture looks smooth but the color looks frightfully awful. Would you give this flavor a try?
The Japanese have a curry-flavored ice cream and now another Asian chef has added another spin to that flavor and has combined the curry with carrots creating a curry-carrot-flavored ice cream! This flavor contains the ice cream essential ingredients, curry powder, a squirt of lemon and shredded carrots. Sounds like a recipe that belongs in a restaurant!
To end the list, here is a lighter, less frightening flavor of ice cream - salad ice cream. Above is strawberry ice cream frilled with chunks of cucumber, tomato, peppers and lettuce. Not really a healthy snack since it is ice cream but I guess it’s healthier than the candied bacon ice cream!
The flavor I would definitely avoid is the squid ink one and the flavor I would be intrigue to try is the sweet corn one because I am a fan of corn and ice cream so that combination doesn’t scare me.
