I love Olive oil and I put it in a lot of my foods. I was watching a commercial and in it two people were on a date, it was a dating one, and the guy said that they infuse olive oil into the ice cream. What? Who in the world would do this, and why? I mean, would you ever do this? My friends said it was weird for me to put it on my veggies, but I like it. What do you think?

Oh how awful, maybe it was meant to be funny, why would anyone want to spoil something as beautiful as ice-cream to spoil it by adding any oil at all, that is just crazy.

You said it lilaclady. Just crazy. I would never do it and that is because I think that ice cream is great even without any topping. I wouldnt infuse it with anything. I guess people are just being overly health conscious. Who knows. Thanks for your response. Have a wonderful day. :)

I agree with you cher913. It seems to me that these people have a serious like for olive oil. I like it, as I said, but that is a little over the top. Thanks so much for your comment. Have a great day. :)

People do strange things with their food, indeed. I only use it for cooking when I want something light...I toss zucchinis and mushrooms in it and some seasoning and then sautee all of that because it's not as heavy on the palette as canola oil or butter, but I don't like olives very well so I don't care for it when I can taste it so I definitely don't think I would like it in ice cream. Or on ice cream; I've seen people on cooking shows put it over their ice cream like you might with chocolate syrup.

Seems gross to me. I mean it is a taste thing after all, right? Wow. I love zucchini and I've had it deep fried. Awsome!!! I will have to try it with olive oil. Thanks for the comment. Have a great day. :)

I have an ice-cream machine at home and I make different kinds of ice-cream now and then. So at least I can say the most material to make ice-cream is the milk and cream. As to olive oil, I feel it will not match with the ice-cream. If you mix it with the vegetables, I think it will taste well. I love China
