7 Unusual Ice Cream Flavors You Never Knew Existed ...

By Eliza

If you love trying new and different frozen treats, you’ll love to see all the unusual ice cream flavors there are out there. They aren’t always all that easy to find, but if you can get your hands on them, it’s always fun to try them out. Ice cream is a great dessert because it’s cold, sweet and easy to eat. Ice cream makes a great choice for a party too. Check out these unusual ice cream flavors if you want to get out of a rut and eat something totally tasty.

1 Honey Jalapeno Pickle

Sound good? I’m not so sure. This is one of those unusual ice cream flavors you’ll have to head to a specialty store to find. It’s featured at Sweet Action Ice Cream in Denver, Colorado. But, if you have an ice cream maker at home, you can probably make your own version. The finished product is a little bit salty and a little bit spicy. If that’s your thing, you’ll probably love this frozen flavor.

2 Curry and Mint

Granted, curry and mint are used together in a variety of ethnic dishes, but mixed with ice cream is something entirely different. The concoction contains turmeric, coriander, chocolate chips and paprika in addition to the curry and mint. If this sounds super delicious to you, check out the recipe: Let me know how it tastes.

3 Southern Lemon Pie

Lemon pie sounds much more like a flavor for a dessert. If you’re the kind of person who likes to shop for your ice cream at the supermarket, try Southern Lemon Pie from Turkey Hill. It has a great lemony flavor as well as marshmallows and shortbread pieces. I think I would tend toward this flavor more than any of the others. When I indulge in ice cream, I want it to be sweet rather than savory.

4 Trail Mix

One of the great things about trail mix is that you can modify it to your exact specifications. And making trail mix ice cream is a snap to do right at home. Start with your favorite flavor of ice cream and toss in mini chocolate covered candies, pretzels, chocolate chips, dry cereal or dried fruit. Mix to combine all the ingredients and then get ready to enjoy your creation.

5 Goat Cheese Cashew Caramel

If you ever find yourself in Chicago, head to Black Dog Gelato for a sample of this sweet concoction. I know that sweet and savory mixed is something that many people love. If you’re one of them, this is probably a flavor of ice cream you’ll like. Goat cheese has a pretty distinctive taste, but the caramel and cashews help balance it for a creamy bowl of ice cream that might just become your new favorite.

6 Queen City Cayenne

You might not be able to find this flavor at any supermarket, but the product from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream can be found at some grocery stores. This flavor is a little bit of hot mixed with a little bit of cold. If you really want to sample something totally different, this is the flavor for you.

7 Cilantro Lime Ice Cream

I will admit that cilantro and lime are ingredients with a refreshing flavor. I’m thinking in salsa rather than ice cream though. However, if you want to transfer that taste to a dish of ice cream, you’re going to love this recipe. Check it out:

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? I recently tried red velvet cake with brownie chunks and I’m not sure I’ll ever choose anything else. Would you ever eat any of these flavors?
