Unique Ice Cream Flavors for Summer
I was reading a USA Today article on new Ice Cream flavors, ice cream shops are planning on unveiling for summer.
Some of them are just too bizarre for my Chocolate, Chocolately taste.
•Buttered Popcorn. In August, MaggieMoo's debuts a flavor with butter pecan and caramel popcorn. "This gets people in the door," says Hilliard Creath, R&D manager.
•Strawberry Basil. It's the first time Cold Stone has put an herb into an ice cream, taste master Ray Karam says.
•Late Night Snack. The Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host helped develop Ben & Jerry's flavor made with chocolate-covered potato chips and caramel. "He suggested pizza, but we thought that sounded gross," says Alison Gilbert, brand manager.
•Mojito Sorbet. There's no rum in it, but the new Cold Stone flavor, due in August, is made with mint and lime.
•Firehouse 31. Anyone who has felt the heat of an Atomic Fireball will appreciate this Baskin-Robbins flavor that crushes a fiery candy into its ice cream.
•Creole Cream Cheese. Made with a cream-cheese-like base and a spicy kick, it hits Baskin-Robbins this summer.
•Maple Bacon Sundae. Denny's is selling the sundae made with vanilla ice cream, maple syrup and bacon bits. Alas, a side of pancakes doesn't come with it.
Do you experiment with your ice cream flavors ? Not me!
