Ice cream is one of the most popular desserts in the world. You can find it at outdoor venues during events or in specialty restaurants as a compliment to cakes or pastries. Depending on where you live, the flavors of ice cream that are most popular often feature fruit, spices or nuts. There are also a number of ice cream companies that offer creative and delicious flavors of ice cream that you can find at your local grocery store.
If you have an adventurous palette and love ice cream, you may be open to trying some strange flavors that are sure to be an experience for your taste buds.
Yes, you read that right. An ice cream featuring raw horse flesh is one of the attractions at Namja Town, an indoor amusement park in Tokyo. Ice Cream City is the creamery located in the amusement park, where you’ll find the horse flesh-enhanced dessert. In addition to this interesting ice cream flavor, Ice Cream City also has flavors like cow tongue, squid, yakisoba and salt for customers to enjoy.
Pear and Bleu Cheese
If you’re a fan of sweet ice cream with a salty twist, this bizarre flavor combination may be for you. Salt & Straw, an ice cream shop in Portland, Oregon, combines salty and sweet flavors for a delicious experience you won’t soon forget. After you sample the pear and bleu cheese, you may want to try some of the other unique flavors the eatery offers, such as strawberry honey balsamic and strawberry with cracked black pepper.
Corn on the Cob
Both ice cream and corn on the cob are great treats to enjoy at your next barbecue or summer picnic, but chances are you’ve never thought to combine the two foods to create a unique ice cream. Corn on the cob ice cream is one of the foods featured at Max & Mina’s, which is located in Queens, New York. The ice cream shop opened in the 1998, and the brothers who own the eatery, Mark and Bruce Becker, have created over 500 flavors of ice cream. The Becker brothers credit their grandfather for many of the flavors, since they used his recipes for inspiration. Corn on the cob ice cream is pretty popular in the summertime, but Max & Mina’s offers several other unique flavors on its ever-changing menu, including, jalapeño, garlic, lox, pizza and horseradish.
Fig and Turkey
The ice cream flavor “scientists” over at Il Laboratorio del Gelato in NYC are always on the lookout for exciting and one-of-a-kind ice cream flavors. The ice cream shop has about 300 flavors, and one of the most popular is their gelato with fresh brown turkey and fig, which sells well even when it’s not Thanksgiving.
Akutaq, which is Eskimo ice cream, uses animal fat as the base for creaminess. The dessert has lots of fresh berries for a naturally sweet taste, and the animal fat used often comes from caribou, whale or reindeer. Obviously, this variety of Eskimo ice cream is much different than Eskimo pie, which is an ice cream bar covered in chocolate that you can find in the dessert section of the grocery store.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
OddFellows Ice Cream is one of the only places where you’ll find ice cream that features the complex flavors of olive oil. The taste of the oil is much more pronounced than what you would normally use for cooking, and you’ll find that the ice cream has a creaminess that is unforgettable. The shop also sells other interesting flavors like Absinthe Chocolate Chip.
Oddfellows also makes a foie gras ice cream that can satisfy a savory craving and a sweet tooth all at the same time. The ice cream is made from duck fat and features quality vanilla ice cream for a unique flavor profile that makes this indulgent treat a fan favorite at this creamery.
Sweet Avocado Cayenne
This ice cream has a kick to it and is particularly creamy due to the avocado. Rococo Creamery sells this bright green ice cream, which is ideal for satisfying your sweet tooth and offering spiciness that makes the mild flavor of avocado more interesting.
“Eat ice cream. Be happy.” That sound advice is the slogan over at Creole Creamery in New Orleans. There are lots of sorbets, ice creams, flavored ices and sherbets to choose from, and Creole Tomato is one of the flavors you’re not likely to find anywhere else. If you don’t have a huge sweet tooth but like the taste of tomatoes and you’re in the mood for ice cream, this treat is the perfect solution.
Big Gay Ice Cream started out as an experiment. The shop was originally an ice cream truck and is now one of the most popular ice cream shops in New York. The shop is unique in that the toppings are what are most appealing, and Cheetos ice cream is one of the flavors that has ice cream enthusiasts talking, especially those who are fans of salty/sweet flavor combinations. This dessert features vanilla cheese ice cream that has been rolled in finely crushed Cheetos.
Bourbon and Corn Flake
This ice cream, also known as the Secret Breakfast, is served at Humphry Slocombe in San Francisco every day and is sold out daily.

So, if you’re in the city and this is one of the ice cream flavors you want to try, get to the shop early so you’ll have an excuse to eat ice cream first thing in the morning.
Even though it’s logical to assume that Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium, located in Maine’s Bar Harbor serves the best in chocolate desserts, this is also the place where you’ll find lobster ice cream. Lobster is one of the most famous delicacies of Maine, and this ice cream is a favorite among seafood lovers. This rich treat includes fresh, buttered lobster and butter-flavored ice cream.
The ice cream varieties you’ll find in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware at The Ice Cream Store are anything but ordinary. It’s not even possible to get “regular” vanilla ice cream there, unless you’re ordering Madagascar Vanilla Bean or African Vanilla. There are, however, lots of options when you want to try ice cream with a spicy kick. The Ice Cream Store is known for one of its newest flavors, Devil’s Breath Carolina Reaper Pepper ice cream, which is a bright red color and also contains cinnamon. The ice creamery has also wowed customers with its Ghost Pepper ice cream, which was a 2016 feature in Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Yes, it’s just that hot. Both flavors of ice cream are so hot that you’re required to sign a waiver before you can order either of these “treats”! If you’re in the Bellingham, Washington area, you may also want to try ghost pepper peppermint ice cream, available at Mallard Ice Cream.
