12 Strange-But-Real Ice Cream Flavors

I scream, you scream, we all scream for … horse flesh ice cream? Okay, so maybe “we all” don’t. But some people do. A lot of people, in fact. Horseradish, foie gras, and lobster, too. Next time you’re craving an ice-cold cone, why not step out of your vanilla/chocolate comfort zone to try one of these 12 strange-but-real ice cream flavors.

1. RAW HORSE FLESH

There are two dozen attractions within Tokyo’s indoor amusement park, Namja Town, but it would be easy to spend all of your time there pondering the many out-there flavors at Ice Cream City, where Raw Horse Flesh, Cow Tongue, Salt, Yakisoba, Octopus, and Squid are among the flavors waiting to tickle (or strangle) your taste buds.

2. HORSERADISH

Since opening Max & Mina’s in Queens, New York in 1998, brothers/owners Bruce and Mark Becker have created more than 5,000 one-of-a-kind ice cream flavors, many of them adapted from their grandfather’s original recipes. Daily flavor experimentations mean that the menu is ever-changing, but Horseradish, Garlic, Pizza, Corn on the Cob, Lox and Jalapeño have all made the lineup. 

3. YAZOO SUE WITH ROSEMARY BAR NUTS

As one of the country’s most decorated ice cream makers, Jeni Britton Bauer—proprietor of Ohio-based Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams—is constantly pushing the boundaries of unique treats, as evidenced by her lineup of limited edition flavors, including the Yazoo Sue With Rosemary Bar Nuts, a mixture of cherry wood-smoked porter and rosemary, brown sugar and cayenne pepper-dusted peanuts, pecans and almonds.

4. BREAKFAST IN BED

“Traditional” isn’t the word you’d choose to describe any of the 70 ice cream varieties at The Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. They don’t have Vanilla, they have African Vanilla or Extreme Vanilla Bean. But things only get wilder from there, and the shop’s proprietors clearly have a penchant for bacon: there’s the standard Bacon (African Vanilla ice cream with bits of real bacon); Bacon, Maple with Jack Daniels; Chocolate Covered Bacon; and Breakfast in Bed, an African Vanilla ice cream base with pasteurized egg yolks, real maple syrup and—you guessed it—bacon! Bonus points for the shop’s Mental Floss for Trailer Trash: vanilla ice cream with Oreo, Twix, Butterfinger, Nestle Crunch, M&Ms and Reese’s Pieces. 

5. FOIE GRAS

It took four months of testing and tasting to perfect it, but French ice creamery Philippe Faur—who’ve made ice cream from caviar, mustard and black truffle—finally perfected a foie gras kind of the cold stuff in 2008, which has since gained some serious popularity.

6. LOBSTER

Don’t let the “chocolate” in the title fool you: Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in Bar Harbor, Maine makes the most of The Pine Tree State’s most famous delicacy with its Lobster Ice Cream, a butter ice cream-based treat with fresh (again buttered) lobster folded into each bite.

7. WASABI PEA DUST

Big Gay Ice Cream started out as an experimental ice cream truck and morphed into one of New York City’s most swoon-worthy ice cream shops, where the toppings—not the ice cream—make for an inimitable indulgence, with Toasted Curried Coconut, Cayenne Pepper, Cardamom, Sriracha and Wasabi Pea Dust among your choices. 

8. PEAR WITH BLUE CHEESE

“Salty-sweet” is the preferred palette at Salt & Straw in Portland, Oregon, where sugar and spice blend together nicely with flavors like Honey Balsamic Strawberry With Cracked Pepper and Pear With Blue Cheese, a well-balanced mix of sweet Oregon Trail Bartlett Pears mixed with crumbles of Rogue Creamery’s Crater Lake Blue Cheese. Yum?

9. SECRET BREAKFAST

You never know exactly which flavors will appear as part of the daily-changing lineup at San Francisco’s Humphry Slocombe, but they always make room for the signature Secret Breakfast. Made with bourbon and Corn Flakes, you’d better get there early if you want to try it; it sells out quickly and on a daily basis.

10. FIG & FRESH BROWN TURKEY

The sweet-toothed scientists at New York City’s Il Laboratorio del Gelato have never met a flavor they didn’t like—or want to turn into an ice cream. How else would one explain the popularity of their Fig & Fresh Brown Turkey gelato, a popular selection among the 200 flavors they have created thus far.

11. AVOCADO WITH MINT & SOUR CREAM

The philosophy at New Orleans’ Creole Creamery is simple: “Eat ice cream. Be happy.” What’s not as easy is choosing from among their dozens of rotating ice creams, sorbets, sherbets and ices. But only the most daring of diners might want to swap out a sweet indulgence for something that sounds more like a salad, as it the case with the Avocado With Mint & Sour Cream. 

12. ESKIMO ICE CREAM

If you happen to find yourself in an ice cream shop in Juneau, remember this: Eskimo ice cream—also known as Akutag—is not the same thing as an Eskimo Pie, that chocolate covered ice cream bar you’ll find in just about any grocery store. Though the statewide delicacy has usually got enough fresh berries mixed in to satisfy one’s sweet tooth, its base is actually animal fat (reindeer, caribou, possibly even whale).

Summer Workbooks

A Simpler Life

photo(63)

According to The National Summer Learning Association, all young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months, and some students also lose more than two months in reading achievement. For this reason, we continue learning through the summer months!

This summer I have my girls doing several different things to further their education.

My 4th grader is keeping a summer journal, where she writes each day’s activities. She is participating in a girls book club with four of her peers, and they are reading 1 book every two weeks and then meeting to discuss the book. She is also working through a 3rd to 4th grade bridging workbook that covers a variety of topics, and a cursive handwriting workbook. She is reading a book…

Phone Manners in Children

  • Kids should learn how to speak politely on the phone.

    It is important that children know that the world does not revolve around them, and when someone else is having a conversation on the phone they need to avoid interrupting if it isn’t an emergency. Teach children they can tap you on the shoulder if they have an urgent need, but they may not talk when you are talking.

    When children are old enough to start using the phone themselves, give them the lines they need to use for answering the phone. In “Teaching Your Kids Proper Telephone Manners,” Families.com suggests the children answer with “Hello, may I ask who’s calling?” In the same way, when the child calls a friend they should say “Hello, this is ____. May I please speak to ______?”

What does it take to say thank you or please

It would really put my mind at ease

If we all used our manners

It takes little time to show some respect

Our manners we should never neglect

Our parents once taught us

The rights from wrong

They taught us where our manners belong

We must not forget our social standards

We can only go onwards and upwards

So be polite wherever you go

Tread the moral ground we once knew

Always remember what you were once taught

By the older generation who gave it some thought
