101 Frightening Ice Cream Flavors.

From the website ''...

The Japanese have long taken pride in their ability to adopt, adapt and improve on customs, practices and styles from other countries. Having succeeded globally with cars, electronics and even fashion, it was only natural that the Japanese turned their hand to trying to surpass the West with one of its favorite culinary delights - ice cream. Here are some of their amazing inventions...

Just click on the link above to peruse this scary little list yourself. Let's face it, some things were just not meant to be in ice cream. Having said that, there are just a few on this list I've actually done... Stout, Red Wine, Curry (coconut curry to be exact, finishing up that tub as we speak).

Moving right along to the truly frightening flavors on this list...

Can you imagine going into an ice cream place and asking for 'a single scoop of Pit Viper with jimmies'?

I can see the conversation going something like this...

"I don't know honey, I think I'm more in the mood for Squid Gut today."

"Hmm, but they have Squid Ink too. How to choose..."

"Dear, maybe you should just get a large of the natural viagra? (wink, wink)"

"And can I just tell you...I've had the hugest hankerin' for Ox tongue all day. Do they have it? ...What do you know."

"I had the Sauerkraut last time and it was just ok. Nothing like the Seaweed and Eel, that's for sure!"

"You know what, I think I'm just going to get my usual, charcoal with rainbow sprinkles in a waffle cone."

Or something like that.

Those flavors are pretty disgusting! I lived in Japan for a while, and most of the ice cream there is the soft-serve variety. The first cone I bought (when I spoke no Japanese) was a spinach and cantaloupe twist. (It looked pretty anyway.)
