I like chocolate ice cream

Quite remarkable that vanilla ice cream outsells chocolate 2 to 1 in the USA. Wife says vanilla more popular as it goes better with a pie or cobbler, for example. Or is it that the American palate tends to favor blandness?

Maybe they buy the vanilla and add chocolate topping, yum.

You should try durian ice cream.
Hmm...


THIS WILL GET THE DURIAN TASTE OUT OF YOUR MOUTH:

Just what the world has been wishing for: Surströmming ice cream

Raymond Chen - MSFTMarch 8, 2007

Every culture has its strange food that is used to scare away the foreigners. In Sweden, it's surströmming. (Surströmming is even classified as hazardous material by some airlines.) And, you know, when you dig into your plate of surströmming, I bet the first thing that goes through your mind is, "Wow, this would go great with some ice cream."
Surströmming ice cream is here
(Caption: Ice cream with Västerbotten cheese, cloudberry, and flatbread.)​
Let's see. A carton of Rocky Road, a little Cookie Dough, a Stracciatella, and... mmm... surströmming. No really, soon you will find it in the frozen food aisle. Surströmming ice cream, brought to you by cook Peter Öhmann, is intended as a dessert plate served with deep-fried Västerbotten cheese, deep-fried parsley, warm cloudberries, and a stick of flatbread. It is expected to be available for purchase starting in December 2007, according to the Surströmming Society's chairman Ruben Madsen. He believes that the ice cream can beat out fish preserves. "Ice cream has no aroma, just taste."​
But don't hold your breath; you won't be able to get it until December. On the other hand, given the strong aroma of surströmming, maybe you should hold your breath after all.

Pure disgust! How will I ever put ice cream in my mouth again???

I will eat almost any flavour of ice cream and don't really have a preference. I'm skeptical of the idea of raisins in ice cream though but they're fine in other things so it's not raisins themselves.
Peanut butter and pistachio ice creams are particularly nice. Nuts work really well

Okay so I found a source of Surstromming where I live recently. Is it worth a go? I love trying new and unusual foods.

It's OK.

I'll take pistachio or butterscotch. Maybe cherry. Also cookie dough + some ordinary flavour (vanilla or/and choc).
