It’s a big world, and there all types of tastes in it. I guess the variety makes for an interesting world, but sometimes people take it too far!
Pork rinds aren’t my thing, but I can see why someone would want to eat them. I would avoid Silkworm Pupas, but they’re just the ticket for somebody out there. But damnit, we have to draw a line, and Octopus Ice Cream would have to be on the far side of that line.
Someone really makes Octopus Ice Cream. Why make a treat out of the many tentacled, evil geniuses? I don’t know. I have nothing against calamari, nor do I disdain ice cream, but they belong in different worlds.
But maybe that’s not the worst of the ice creams that have been conjured. Consider:
- Chicken Wing Ice Cream (Japan)
- Crab Ice Cream (Japan)
- Eel Ice Cream (Japan)
- Fish Ice Cream (Japan)
- Wasabi Ice Cream (Japan)
- Ox Tongue Ice Cream (Japan)
- White Pepper Ice Cream (Food Network)
- Blue Cheese & Pear Ice Cream (Origin unknown)
- Garlic Ice Cream (USA)
Maybe it the growing affinity for fast food tossing items into one bowl to save time. Maybe it’s the fusion foods movement. All I know is that it’s a crime against chocolate.
