Weird Ice Cream Flavors

I’m not a big ice cream lover although once in awhile I get the urge. I stick to the basics, chocolate, peppermint, strawberry.  I have been known to throw all caution to the wind and order a banana split, however it must come with three cherries on top. Oh Rayman, you wild and crazy guy!

Ice cream isn’t taking a summer vacation, it’s way too busy getting weird. Like French Toast ice cream. Like Buttered Popcorn. Like Strawberry Basil. And a sundae with bacon bits.

Some summer ice cream oddities:

•French Toast. Later this summer, Baskin-Robbins will roll out the ice cream with bits of French toast and maple. “Customers love knowing they can get a sample, then get their favorites,” executive chef Stan Frankenthaler says.

•Buttered Popcorn. In August, MaggieMoo’s debuts a flavor with butter pecan and caramel popcorn. “This gets people in the door,” says Hilliard Creath, R&D manager.

•Strawberry Basil. It’s the first time Cold Stone has put an herb into an ice cream, taste master Ray Karam says.

•Late Night Snack. The Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host helped develop Ben & Jerry’s flavor made with chocolate-covered potato chips and caramel. “He suggested pizza, but we thought that sounded gross,” says Alison Gilbert, brand manager.

•Mojito Sorbet. There’s no rum in it, but the new Cold Stone flavor, due in August, is made with mint and lime.
