ice cream doesn't just come in vanilla

With all the different companies making ice cream nowadays, there are a ton of different flavors available, but wanna know about some *really* funky flavors? Well, here's a list of some that Ben & Jerry probably haven't thought up yet. They're not nearly as exotic as the weird-ass flavors that the Japanese have come up with (link to that list is in the article referenced above), but then, the Japanese are whack.

Sweet corn ice cream - now that's a flavor that I can definitely see a particular store owned by a particular person to come up with. Actually, I'm wondering if he has/they have already done that.

Grilled potato? Ummm, no, pass.

Sauerkraut - now, don't get me wrong, I *love* me some sauerkraut, but in ice cream? I'm not sure I can get with that particular program.

If someone had asked me about bacon ice cream a few months ago, I'd have said, no thank you, no way, leave me alone. But, since I've already decided that I'm going to be trying chocolate-covered bacon in another month or so, I'm thinking I'd probably agree to try bacon ice cream too.

BBQ ice cream? Pass.

Lobster ice cream. Hmmmm, I don't know. I don't think I can deal with crustacean in my ice cream.

As for the garlic ice cream mentioned at the beginning of the article, I've actually had that! Multiple years ago, I met up with a friend at the Gilroy Garlic Festival (I so want to go back, but the timing of the festival is really inconvenient for our schedule.), and we both were not whelmed when we heard about the garlic ice cream. But after spending a day of eating a ton of garlic-laden food, we decided to try it. At that point, it was actually pretty good, but the garlic didn't bother us. Heck, with as much garlic as we'd had up to then, EVERYTHING tasted like it was garlic infused. Now, if I'd tried the garlic ice cream upon first getting there, that might be a different issue.
