Think you've worked your way through every imaginable flavour of ice cream the stores have to offer this summer? Hold on to your spoons, the world of ice cream is full of surprises. Read on to know about some quirky ice cream flavours that ingenious minds around the world came up with:

While corn in desserts is rather upsetting to Indian sensibilities, Sweet Corn ice cream is a favourite in the US where people enjoy bits of corn kernel in a smooth blend.

2. Charcoal

Charcoal ice cream is available in Bangkok. Why charcoal, you ask? Because it apparently does a good job cleansing toxins from your body (even with all the sugar in ice cream!)

3. Curry

Made using fresh coconut and a “sweet Indian curry”, this quirky flavour is created by Vosges Haut-Chocolat, a Chicago based company specialising in eccentric combinations!

4. Bacon

Originally intended as a joke, bacon ice cream was first rolled out in 1992, and owing to the Bacon Mania that is steadily capturing the world, has become a hot favourite in US, Canada and Europe.

5. Jalapeno

An invention by the McIlhenny Company of Louisiana, the folks behind the fiery Tabasco sauce, the product is actually a mix with which you can make ice cream at home. Interesting!

6. Garlic

Several garlic conventions (yes, these exist) around the world feature garlic ice cream. Plain vanilla icecream with honey and hints of this aromatic bulb are served in the Gilroy Garlic Festival, California and the Ithaca Garlic Festival, New York, to name a few.

7. Spaghetti and Cheese

A shop in Merida, Venezuela serves ground up spaghetti with cheese flavoured ice cream, and apparently people love it. As weird as it may sound, it is actually quite popular in Germany and Italy.

8. Beer

Beer lovers, rejoice! While beer ice cream float has been around for long, quite a few ice cream companies have experimented with actual craft beer-infused frozen desserts. What’s more, a host of recipes are also available online for making your own batch at home!

9. Ramen Noodles

Planning a trip to Japan? Don’t forget to try out the Ramen noodles ice cream by Nissin Foods, the makers of the Cup Noodles. Available in Soy Sauce and Curry flavours, this one is not for the faint of heart (or stomach)!

10. Glow-in-the-dark Jellyfish

The quirkiest of the lot, this flavour was developed by Charlie Francis of the British company Lick Me I’m Delicious, in collaboration with a Chinese scientist to extract the protein which makes jellyfish luminescent. The ice cream reacts with the warmth of the tongue and glows brighter with every slurp! How great is that!

While these sure sound freaky, what can stop hardcore foodies from at least trying these once, right?
