Did you know that ice cream can be as addictive as cocaine? No one can refuse a bucket of Häagen Dazs cookie dough ice cream, can they? But I wonder if they can refuse these…
1. Squid Ink
You’ve been driving down that road all day, windows down, radio on, sun blaring in your face. What’s better than parking your car near a gas station and buying a squid ink ice cream?
This flavor can be found in Japan (along with squid gut ice cream). The dark ink gives the ice cream its charcoal color. Squid ink is used in various meals such as spaghetti sauce, but ice cream? That’s just nutty.
So you’re on a diet but you can resist the pressure of the thoughts of ice cream pressing on your head. What do you do? Buy salad flavored ice cream, of course!
This is another Japanese invention which consists of strawberry ice cream filled with cucumber, tomato, peppers and lettuce. Mm.
3. Spleen & Artichoke
Let’s take a second to dwell on just how crazy this is. Spleen and artichoke!?
I kid you not guys, you can actually buy this ice cream in Italy. Andrew Zimmern actually had a bite of it. I wonder how it influenced his recipes.
This one should keep the vampires away. The savory ice cream is made in Gilroy, California, which is the “Garlic Capitol of the World”. Their annual festival features various garlic activities, so it only makes sense that it was made into an ice cream flavor.
You can see the recipe to this and actually make it yourself here.
5. Raw Horse Flesh
Tesco should start selling these — it’ll light the media up on fire again. In Japan, again, because Japan is the base of all weird things, they make vanilla ice cream mixed with raw horse flesh.
It’s also known as Basashi Ice and is a favorite (God knows how).
