Ice cream is that rare beast: the universally liked food. That's not to say that there aren't some truly weird ice cream flavors out there. Behold some of our favorites. [via sfweekly]
Available at San Francisco ice cream haunt Humphry Slocombe, this flavor contains a wacky mix of bourbon and cornflakes. The most surprising part? It's incredibly tasty. Other unique Slocombe flavors include cream cheese, sour cream, and peanut butter-curry.
9. The Sex Pistol
For when you're having trouble getting in the mood, London ice cream shop The Icecreamists offers this Viagra-like combo of absinthe and herbal supplements including arginine, biloba, guarana, and gingko. Hey, it's probably more fun to take than a pill.
8. Candied Bacon
Meat lovers, rejoice! Your perfect ice cream is here, thanks to The Perfect Scoop author David Lebovitz. The dessert master's candied bacon creation features light brown sugar, cinnamon, and lots of bacon. The recipe is available here.
7. The Mash Cone
Leave it to the British to cook up a concoction made from sausage, mashed potato, gravy, and peas, stuffed in an ice cream cone. A company called Aunt Bessie's dishes out the mash cone, which is surprisingly good, according to the UK Metro.
Don't get us wrong -- we could eat lox for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But putting smoked salmon in an ice cream cone might be taking it a bit too far. If you live in Queens, New York, you can try it for yourself at Max and Mina's Homemade Ice Cream and Ices. Other odd ice cream flavors in the shop: beer, garlic, pizza, and corn on the cob.
This flavor is given away free every year at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California. The fest also shills items like a spicy garlic butter cookie and Spanish garlic shrimp.
Again, licorice is great by itself. But mashed up into a scary-looking ice cream cone? Slightly nauseating. Still, Fosselman's, an L.A. ice cream joint that features the flavor, is beloved by locals.
3. Haggis (Sheep Intestines)
Served up at Morelli's, a shop inside the Harrod's Food Hall in London, this ice cream comes complete with haggis, aka sheep innards sealed up like a sausage. Don't worry, though. The intestines are blended throughout the ice cream -- you won't encounter any chunks. Feel better?
This flavor out of Japan might be the most outrageous yet. Basashi ice, sold in Tokyo markets, features chunks of raw horsemeat. Hey animal rights activists: Want to take a stab at this one?
This ice cream mashup, sold by Heladeria Coromoto in Venezuela, contains burger meat, cheese, french fries, and "secret incredients" [sic]. A stoner's dream? We think so. Just in case you don't find it appealing, the heladeria sells over 800 other flavors (see above photo).
