20 Of The Weirdest Ice Cream Flavors



Ice cream is one of those foods that pretty much everyone likes. Even for all of the lactose intolerant people, there is a soy-based ice cream or water-based gelato out there that will be delicious, and not harm their digestive tract.

There are thousands upon thousands of different flavors of ice cream, and then there are different variations of each flavor. This all leads to one fact: there is quite literally a flavor for everyone. However, some people have stranger tastes and preferences than others. Not everyone likes the typical “Rocky Road” or “Strawberries and Cream.” This list documents the stranger ice cream flavors from all across the globe.
