The Most Unconventionally Flavored Ice Creams in the World

Dessert lovers often have ice cream on their list of go to desserts. The creamy sweet treat is popular not only among children but adults alike. The exploding popularity of ice cream has led to a number of varieties with ice cream manufacturers experimenting with several flavors. Some flavors are unconventional and while they do not conform to the flavor and texture of vanilla and chocolate that we have known and had for years, they are liked by many. Here are five of these flavored ice creams.

1. Fish and Chips

Given how much Britons like fish and chips, it is no surprise that they decided to create fish and chips flavored ice cream as a dessert. This ice cream is the mastermind of UK ice cream manufacturer Fredericks Dairies. They have tried to be creative by making the dessert to resemble the actual fish and chips. The fish flavored ice cream is dipped in vanilla and pepper batter before being deep fried. Ice cream with a potato flavor makes up the accompanying chippies. There are other variations of this fish and chips flavored ice cream which are served with mascarpone tartar sauce and raspberry ketchup.

2. Garlic

Garlic has a spicy, pungent and earthy taste when raw, but a nutty flavor when cooked. It adds a unique flavor to food such as meats and salads, but in ice cream, this may be a bit weird. Garlic ice cream became popular when it was featured after the recipe, inspired from Gilroy, California, “the Garlic Capital of the World” where the annual Gilroy garlic festival is hosted. Garlic flavored ice cream has a subtle garlic flavor which is surprising due to the roasting method that is used in preparing the plum bulbs of California garlic. This ice cream promises to have a nice, sweet flavor from the roasted garlic.

3. Cheese

Cheese is used in many dishes and paired with several ingredients in the making of cheesy creations. While cheddar cheese ice cream may be different, it is a classic ice cream flavor in the Philippines. This ice cream flavor is salty and sweet unlike most others. Whole milk, sugar, egg yolks, and cheddar cheese are ingredients in the basic recipe. Other ingredients, such as vanilla bean and white ground pepper, are called for in certain upscale gourmet versions.

4. Green Tea

In Japan and other parts of East Asia, green tea ice cream, often known as matcha ice, is a preferred ice cream flavor. Green tea ice cream only gained popularity in the 1990s, despite the fact that it is now available all throughout Japan and in Japanese restaurants abroad. Contrary to what the name implies, green tea ice cream is not made from green tea but rather from matcha powder, which is a unique green tea leaf blend that is ground into a fine bright green powder. This ice cream has an earthy, sweet and slightly bitter flavor.

5. Raw Horse Flesh Flavor

Horse meat is a delicacy in many parts of the world, especially Japan. Raw horse meat is thinly sliced and served with soy sauce and garlic. With their love for horsemeat and their adventurous nature when it comes to food, it is not far-fetched that horse meat ice cream is a thing in Japan. Raw horseflesh flavored ice cream includes vanilla ice cream with raw horse meat mixed in it. This ice cream which sounds disgusting but is loved by many is available at Ice Cream City in Namja Town, an indoor amusement park in Tokyo.
