5. Garlic
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.

4. Licorice
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?

2. Basashi Ice
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?

1. Cheeseburger
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).

  • 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.'"
