Bacon-flavoured ice cream does not seem so weird – not when you discover ten weird (and slightly alarming) ice cream inventions below…

The staff at a restaurant in Philippines once invented this hair-raising flavour after being offered crocodile eggs from a farm situated next to it.

This ice cream may look pink and pretty, but do not be deceived by its pleasing appearances, for it masks a potent level of spiciness.

At last, a perfect delicacy for foodies in love with sweet and savoury treats! You get the best of both worlds in this chicken wing-flavoured delight, enjoying the smooth creaminess of ice cream, together with the addictive flavour of a well-fried chicken wing.
(We hope that you are not grossed out, for we say this in jest! The amusing folks at Perry's Ice Cream created this as an April Fool's prank in 2014.)
