So my friend emailed me to ask if I had tried any unusual ice cream flavors since being here in Seoul. Well, my answer was 'of course I have', remembering the ice cream I got when I first moved here, oh what was it.... BLACK RICE! What was I thinking when I bought that? It was like eating something cold that almost resembled ice cream, but tasted of overcooked rice, smashed, with hard pieces of, well....did your mom ever cook rice and not cook it all the way through? My mom did, and I hated it. This is what the rice chunks were like in this ice cream. Rice that was not cooked all the way through and oh by the way, it was black, which just added to the 'not so palatable' aspect of it. Then I started thinking about the ice cream Boy 2 got at Baskin' Robbins a while back it had POP ROCKS in it. My friend that ask this question has another friend looking for 'unusual' flavors for some sort of article....I'm not exactly sure, I didn’t' get all the details. This got me thinking about you guys, and how you would probably like to know this information as well. My kids were more than game to help with the research, although when it came down to it, they just ordered your basic chocolate and vanilla. The things I found here might just blow your mind, and might not leave your gut feeling too well either.
Here is a picture of the Black Rice ice cream: You can't really see the 'chunks' in it, but I promise you, they are there.
Here is another flavor worth talking about. Green Tea and Red Beans. My first taste, I didn't think it was too bad, I mean considering I don't like tea. Then had Hubby try it....he about spit it on the floor, saying "what the &#^$....that taste like fish"! Personally, I didn't think it tasted like fish, I thought it was more along the lines of dirt.
