Lobster ice cream made its debut at Ben & Bills Chocolate Emporium around 1988, after a customer visited and commented the New England outpost offered every flavour, but lobster. Reportedly, the manager at the time, replied, “Come back tomorrow,” and the lobster ice cream was born. Ben & Bills serves lobster ice cream at Bar Harbor and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It is a butter ice cream-based treat with fresh lobster folded in each bite.

The Ice Cream Store situated in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is luring customers to try this innovative dessert—ghost pepper ice cream. They are notoriously spicy, made with African vanilla ice cream, strawberry sauce, several hot sauces and ghost peppers. But only adults between the ages of 18 to 65 are allowed to eat it. And you will have to sign a waiver at this ice cream shop, even if you want to taste a sample of this spicy treat.

It is such a unique idea! In 2010, Frederick's Dairies launched a creamed cod-flavoured ice cream served in a vanilla and pepper batter with potato ice cream chips. The platter looks like fish and chips but it is ice cream coated in batter and then fried. The accompanying chips are made of potato, flavoured ice cream.

So, are you ready to try the flavours, if you haven’t already? Any flavoured ice cream cannot disappoint you and considering the above list’s popularity, it shall be fun to try out. Treat your taste bud with some weird-flavoured ice cream!
