Are you sick of the same chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream flavors staring you in the face at your local creamery or market?
The good news is that there are a ton of innovative flavors for your sampling pleasure out there in this great wide world. The bad news is that some of them are made with some pretty odd ingredients that many of us wouldn’t consider palatable as a sweet treat.
So get those sampling spoons ready and put your preconceived ice cream conceptions aside. Here are ten of the oddest and most unique ice cream flavors from around the globe…
1. Jackfruit Ice Cream, India
I know, I hadn’t heard of jackfruit before either. However, this sweet tasting fruit that flourishes mostly in hot climates like India might be my new favorite ice cream flavor. Because you might not be able to get it in North America (unless you venture out to find it at an Indian or Jamaican-specific market) imagine jackfruit ice cream as a creamy, sweet spoonful of Juicy Fruit-flavored gum.
