For National Ice Cream Month, we take a look at some of the weird and wonderful flavours that have injected a bit of variety into one of our favourite desserts. Miles away from the traditional neopolitan favourites, these odd ice cream flavours are sure to baffle your mind and perhaps (or perhaps not!) perk up your tastebuds. Creamed CodCreamed Cod, George’s Portebello Fish Bar This ice cream makes it onto the list as it’s not only a peculiar flavour to be eaten cold, but the way that it’s presented makes it highly unique. The spectacle is made with creamed cod-flavoured ice cream coated in vanilla and pepper batter and is accompanied by potato ice cream chips made with Maris Piper potatoes. To finish off, salt and vinegar can be added, as well as a lemon wedge for that authentic fish’n’chip shop experience.   SaltSalt, Ice Cream City, Tokyo This one is pretty self-explanatory. A salt flavoured ice cream, adding a new element to the traditional sweetness you expect to find with the creamy dessert. Adding salt to food is not unusual, neither is using a small amount of salt in baking to accentuate flavours. Salt by itself, however, might not be to everyone’s taste. Lobster   Lobster, Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium, Maine If you’ve ever ordered lobster at a restaurant you’ll know the feeling of having the rest of the table stare at you with jealousy as you tuck in to your luxury meal. These stares may generally be reciprocated if you ordered a Lobster flavoured ice cream from Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium, but perhaps not for the same reason. However, for any lobster fans out there this could be a real treat! article-1350170-05ED5D7B000005DC-90_468x342isHaggis, Morelli’s Ice Cream Parlour This traditional Scottish delicacy is served up by Morreli’s, a chain of ice cream stores based in London. The haggis is simply mixed with the ice cream and is made from real offal. Morreli’s also boast a range of other traditional British dishes, including Yorkshire pudding and bangers and mash, all in ice cream form! Spaghetti and Cheese Spaghetti and Cheese, Heladeria Coromoto, Venezuela Not only does this dish involve a cheese flavoured ice cream, which many might find a tad strange, the inclusion of actual spaghetti makes it a definite contender for the oddest ice cream on the list. The spaghetti is mixed amongst the cheesy ice cream to create what can only be described as a frozen macaroni cheese treat!   CaviarCaviar, Philippe Faur It’s a well-known fact that one of the world’s most luxury foods is caviar. People pay top money for the right type, excited at the prospect of trying the renowned, fish egg delicacy. However, pop it in ice-cream with a dollop on top and, depending on your preferences, you might say otherwise. Breakfast in Bed   Breakfast in Bed, The Ice Cream Store, Delaware There’s no better way to wake up than with a fresh, hot, steaming full English breakfast. But take the bacon, take the eggs and take the maple syrup, combine them together and insert them into some sort of dairy product and you’ll have something similar to The Ice Cream Store’s Breakfast in Bed ice cream. If the idea of a whole breakfast in your ice cream puts you off, then the company also offers a plain bacon ice cream with bacon pieces inside. Corn on the CobCorn on the Cob, Max & Mina’s, New York It’s served in scoops in a dish, however, you might say it would be more fun to eat with two sticks on either side - the traditional corn on the cob way! This cold dessert, made by New York’s renowned Max & Mina’s Ice Cream Store, involves mixing actual sweetcorn in with the ice cream! Sweetcorn has long been a favourite to mix with sandwich fillings, so surely ice cream is the next natural progression, right?   Squid Ink, Traditional Japanese FavouriteSquid Ink Ever had a pen pop in your mouth? Well, Japanese ice cream makers have been reproducing this flavour for generations with their traditional squid ink ice cream. The black colour comes from the ink itself, although for those not quite keen on that inky taste, traditional squid ice cream is also a favourite with Japanese food lovers.   BeerBeer, Frozen Pints In traditional ‘save the best till last’ fashion, this beer flavoured ice cream is sure to excite those of us who consider ourselves as ‘alcoholic beverage connoisseurs’ - or something along those lines! Frozen Pints offer a range of different ice cream flavours, including Pumpkin Ale and Cinnamon Espresso Stout, for anyone wanting something a bit stronger. By Lewis Treleaven
