101 Frightening Ice Cream Flavors From Around The World...

I have to be totally honest here, since being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I have been thinking more and more about what I eat; or rather what I used to eat. Like I have said, I have one heck of a sweet tooth and just LOVE my food; as anyone who knows me will tell you.

So having to watch what I eat and check everything twice, I have found many things I like are on the “bad” list. Normally that would not be too much of a problem, I would just have anything and everything else that I could etc and where on the “good” list.

However, me being as I am; it just is not that easy. To say I am a fussy eater is not an understatement, though I am much better than I used to be! I have made myself try new things, I have challenged myself to finding the best out of what I like; and so far it has been okay.

Of course I have had my bad days, you know the ones where nothing goes right for you, everything is against you and all you want is to pig out on crap. However, I have; without trying lost half a stone since Feb which is (as anyone on a diet will tell you) a great thing to focus on.

Now there is a reason for the title and this post, one of the things I totally adore is desert (you would never tell though would you?) and especially ice cream... hence the posts title! I am your basic kinda girl; I like the simple things in life, plain and nothing too fancy! I like vanilla; coffee and that’s about it... I cannot eat chocolate anyways, (because of bad migraines) so have lived without it for so long and shall continue to do so.

Now, in my “try new stuff” regime I think I would try most things at least once; not so sure about some of these flavours though! See what you guys think and tell me if you would try any of them, or how about making up a new flavour of your own?

Who is up for some Garlic-flavoured Dracula Ice Cream?
What about some stout flavoured ice cream? I am sure Councillor Clarke could neck a few of them!
What about Red Wine ice cream? I am sure I know more than a few people who would like that flavour!
Maybe Chunky Bacon flavour grabs you, or its counterpart; BBQ flavour?

Whichever flavour you pick, I am sure nothing will compare to number 70 on the list; Natural Viagra ice cream! Firstly, as the person says; I never realised Viagra had a flavour! Is that where you swallow the tablet too slow and end up getting a stiff neck? However, it also brings forward some interesting questions; not least would it carry the same health warnings...

Would women be able to have it too?
Would you have to wait twenty minutes before eating?
Will it be soft scoop or a hard block?
Instead of “brain freeze” if you eat it to quick will you get a stiff head? (Take your pick which one!)
If the effects of the ice cream last longer than four hours does the person have to seek medical attention?

Makes you wonder what they will think of next doesn’t it? Anyways, I am off for a nice bowl of Potato flavoured ice cream!
