Looks like boogers, but doesn’t taste like ’em

Unless boogers taste like vanilla ice cream with a caramel ribbon. This is but one of the out-there flavors currently on the menu at the Ice Cream Store in Rehoboth, DE.

The Ice Cream Store is known for offering at least a couple unusual flavors that rotate throughout the year. Luckily, no matter how unpalatable the flavor sounds, they still make it taste good.

Same can’t be said of Snow King, the ice cream place Pie and I went to years ago in Taipei. Known for their pigs’ feet ice cream, their disgusting flavors are unapologetically disgusting. We tried the sesame chicken and mustard flavors. They tasted exactly like what they were supposed to be. That was the problem. (Pie, the vegetarian, passed on the chicken. Good thing, because it left chicken in my teeth so I was eating it long after I was finished.)

PS: If you don’t know what “fluffy pork” is, ask a Chinese friend or just Google it.

Bacon ice cream: salty-sweet goodness

We couldn’t resist the siren call of the beer or the bacon ice cream at Rehoboth. “Dare ya to try us,” it mocked. Well, don’t let Mr. X-sXe’s grimace fool you. We actually liked both flavors. The beer had a mild, malty goodness. The bacon ice cream was vanilla flecked with tiny pieces of salty bacon. Hey, don’t knock it till you try it, right?

It was almost as good as the bacon rice krispy treats we whipped up over New Year’s!!!
