Wildest and Most Bizarre Ice Cream Flavors

There are hundreds of ice cream flavors that shops all over the world offer for people who are in the mood to try anything. We’ve all tried the “normal” flavors of ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry. And maybe those who are feeling a little bolder have attempted more exotic flavors. But some ice cream flavors will make you do a double-take and think why on Earth anyone thought to make ice cream out of it.

Here’s a list of some of those most bizarre ice cream flavors in the world (and yes, they do exist somewhere!):

Roasted Garlic and Almond Chip

You can find this unusual flavor at Sebastian Joe’s ice cream shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


This is a real ice cream flavor, and there are tons of recipes online to make it at home. It is usually paired with salmon.

Horse Meat

Yes, this is real, and you can find it–along with a bunch of other flavors–at small ice cream shops in tourist areas in Japan.

Fish and Chips Gelato

UK ice cream maker Fredericks Dairies serves this vanilla and pepper batter surrounded creamed cod ice cream on a bed of potato ice cream chips. And you can’t forget the vinegar and lemon wedges.

Blue Cheese

Another ice cream flavor you can make at home. Gordon Ramsey created this flavor and it seems to have positive reviews.

Buttered Corn on the Cob

A quick Google search will give you tons of recipes for this flavor. Could it be any stranger than popcorn-flavored jelly beans?


Staying true to their Maine roots, Ben and Bill’s Chocolate Emporium came up with this flavor as a new way for customers to enjoy the taste of lobster.


This unusual ice cream flavor debuted at Big Gay Ice Cream. It’s a vanilla cone with a hint of cheese and dipped in Cheeto dust.

Cheese lovers and ice cream fans can get their dairy fix with this…interesting flavor in the Philippines.

Brown Bread

Murphy’s Ice Cream in Dublin, Ireland is one place where you can find ice cream flavored like a loaf of bread.

Shitake Mushroom

You can make this ice cream for yourself, covered in bacon bits, or visit a shop in Taiwan called The Mushroom Garden for a truly funky flavor.

Ham and Cheese

You can find this flavor in the US or Venezuela; it seems to be becoming a familiar flavor in specialty ice cream shops for those who are brave enough to give it a taste.

Olive Oil

It sounds bizarre, but this flavor is quite popular among those who have given it a taste. Mario Batali was the inventor of this off the wall flavor, and now you can find it in ice cream shops across New York City, or make it yourself at home.

I hope you enjoyed the list of bizarre ice cream flavors. I’m sure you can come up with some of your own and there’s somebody who will like it as well. Stay tuned for more!
