The best thing about summer is the cool, delicious sweet treats one gets to have and ice cream certainly tops the list of all the scrumptious summery deserts. Just like languages and cultures, ice cream flavours differ from country to country, providing one with a chance to explore odd yet yummy flavours from across the globe. If you want to let your taste buds indulge in these experimental, delectable flavours, here are some of the world’s wackiest ice cream combos you need to try!

Chilli ice-cream – Cold Sweat

Sunni Sky’s Homemade Ice Cream in Angier (North Carolina) is dishing out scoops of the world’s most dangerous ice cream – which is so hot that customers need to sign a disclaimer! Not 'hot' as in melted, but 'hot' like it's got a whole load of chillies in it. It consist of an ice cream base, hot sauces, and pequín, habanero, and Thai chilli peppers. Words in the disclaimer mention having the ice cream “could be a risk of personal injury, illness and possible loss of life.” The ice cream is 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce and staff at the cafe even need to wear gloves when they dish out scoops.

Maple-walnut ice cream – Breakfast Bash

Sounds about delicious and healthy altogether. It is mostly made of Maple-walnut ice cream, pancake and French toast pieces, and confectioners’ sugar. So it is basically a goody good mixture of a sweet treat along with richness of a yum breakfast. Might as well skip breakfast when you’ve an ice-cream to have, instead of a breakfast.

Eskimo ice cream – Akutaq

Akutaq is a food in western Alaska and northern Canada, also called as Eskimo ice cream. Traditionally, it was made with whipped fat mixed with berries like cranberries, salmonberries, crowberries, cloudberries (also known as salmonberry), and blueberries including Whipped animal fat, sweetener and boiled meat or fish.

Balsamic Fig & Mascarpone

Creamy mascarpone-based ice cream with balsamic glazed California figs and a balsamic swirl. Sounds oddly delicious!

Lobster ice-cream – Chunky desire

In an age when charcoal black ice cream is just as common as rocky road, the idea of lobster-flavoured ice cream may not turn many heads. But way back in 1988, putting seafood in ice cream was nothing short of extreme. It is made of butter-flavoured ice cream with lobster chunks. Unusual combo, right?

Bangkok Peanut

It is a version of the classic dish Pad Thai. It starts with smooth, rich, and salty peanut butter. From there, Ohio wildflower honey and toasted fresh-ground coconut is added, for sweetness. Each bite finishes with a kick of cayenne pepper. A complex combination of salty, savoury, sweet and heat.

Cereal Milk Soft Serve

It is simply made with milk, cornflakes, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. You can scoop this ice cream into your favourite pie crust, sandwich it between your favourite cookies, or scoop it into a bowl and decorate with your favourite breakfast cereal and jam.

Everything Bagel

This sweet and savoury desert is made with everything bagels soaked in ice cream, further flavoured with pieces of everything bagels, dried onion pieces, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.

Mexican Chocolate

It has an intense chocolate flavour plus all the familiar flavours of Mexican hot chocolate: spicy chili and warm cinnamon. So it’s basically made with chocolate ice cream, Kahlúa, chile pequín flakes, cinnamon, almonds, and instant coffee. Wow. What a dreamy fusion!
