Lobster Ice Cream



Maine is lobster country, so what's an ice cream shop to do? Make lobster ice cream, of course! At Ben & Bill's Chocolate Emporium of Bar Harbor, fresh-steamed Maine lobster is buttered and folded into a butter cream base to make a frosty desert that's a true catch. Click here for more info

Lox Ice Cream



From the icy waters of the Atlantic straight to the icy cream of Max & Mina's lox ice cream, this vanilla-based treat is studded with flecks of nova lox (cured salmon), cream cheese and just a pinch of salt. Before you say “eww,” just think how good it tastes on a bagel. Click here for more info

Soy Sauce Sorbet



Some people love the taste of ice cream but hate the thought of cream. For those folks, there's soy ice cream – but NEWSFLASH! That's not that crazy anymore. Unless you're talking about soy sauce ice cream, in which case stop the presses – that just sounds insane. Courtesy of food writer Jessica Su, this Soy Sauce Sorbet is an ice cream-esque confection you can make yourself. Click here for more info
