The 10 Weirdest Ice Cream Flavors in Existence

Posted By on Wed, Sep 2, 2009 at 9:06 AM

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.

10. Secret Breakfast
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.

6. Lox
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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
