One time I heard of a cucumber flavored ice cream but I was reluctant to try it. It just didn't seem that cucumbers and ice cream could go together. What is the strangest ice cream flavor you have ever heard of?

I've heard of rose-flavored ice cream and garlic flavored ice cream. My favorite flavor, is actually a mixture of two flavors: pumpkin and black cherry.

I've honestly never heard of rose-flavored ice cream or garlic-flavored ice cream. Hmmmmm...interesting! I might go for the rose one though, if I ever see it. Now, pumpkin and black cherry does sound good although I have never heard of that combination. There's an ice cream store downtown in my city that sells some of the oddest ice cream flavors. I'm going to have to pay them a visit and see what they have now. They are always rotating and changing their flavors.

Rose is a flavor I've always wanted to try, and garlic is one my Mom's always wanted to try. Good luck! Hopefully they have something amazing for you to try there! I'm rather fortunate all the ice cream places here know me and get a kick out of seeing what flavors I'll mix up next =) Pumpkin-blackherry together actually tastes like a strange cousin of chocolate!

I can see how pumpkin and black cherry would taste kind of like chocolate in a way. I wonder if there is a way that I could actually try that unique combination myself? I need to get an ice cream maker. lol

Strangest is green tea ice cream. When I heard about it, I was like "eeerrrr... green tea? Ice cream? not good. Yuck!". I think green teas are just for teas and I dont think it would taste good. Also the name, you cant name it "green tea" coz it wont be a tea anymore. LOL.

I agree. Green tea ice cream does seem a bit odd. I can't imagine putting green tea in ice cream...well, maybe, if they add a LOT of honey to it first. LOL!

Garlic Ice Cream, it is a treat of San Jose California, or very close to it and they are proud of their garlic. I hear they serve the ice cream in small servings as it is so strong.

Yeah. I can totally see why it's served in small amounts at a time. It would get a bit overpowering if one were to eat too much of it.

Hi, nice to meet you here. I have heard about Durian flavor ice-cream. Durian is king of fruits in tropical country. So, some of them might not know it. If some of them never try it before, they feel that is it very smelly. However, if you have tried it, you will feel that is nice and tasty. So, Durian ice cream flavor is the strangest ice-cream that i have heard it before. Have a nice day and happy my lotting.

Durian is an interesting flavor that I have never tried. I think durian is native to the Philipines, correct? Is it also native to other countries as well? I am just curious.

I have seen chili ice cream before but did not have the chance to try it. I would have though just for the sake of it as I am pretty adventurous when it comes to food. I saw a show on a cable food channel a while back too and they were showing a store that sold garlic ice cream! It was extremely popular with the locals apparently but it sounded pretty wierd to me. I still would try it at least once though!

I wonder how hot the chili ice cream is. Garlic ice cream does sound interesting. It must have been pretty good to be extremely popular with the locals. I will have to admit that it is a bit odd though.

I've tried some really unusual ice cream flavours and I absolutely love them. I think it's worth trying. I've tried durian for example. Durian is a thorny fruit and has a very unique taste. Add it to ice cream and you get a really interesting cold creamy type of ice cream that is rather popular. I've also tried chilli chocolate ice cream. Very interesting and unique too. I love the hot spicy taste of the chilli and the cold ice cream. The ice cream tastes hot spicy and cold at the same time. I would recommend trying it. :)

Chili chocolate ice cream sounds delicious! I will definitely be on the lookout for it, and if I ever see it then I will try some.

Tabasco ice cream. I love tabasco and I am actually thinkin about trying it. Odd flavor yet but one of the most famous cold stone creamery flavors is red hot ice cream so maybe tabasco won't be so bad. If they make it i'm sure someone likes it. Right??

Garlic in pasta? Yes, and with lots of sauce and shredded cheese. Garlic in ice cream? NO, and especially NOT with chocolate syrup, nuts, cherries, and whipped cream. Yuck! LOL! I'm having a tough time thinking of garlic in ice cream. But hey, if some people like that, more power to them! It's a free country. :D
