Ice cream man

The first cheque of any celebrity is a reward they remember throughout their lives and many stars buy some memorable stuff that reminds them of their first pay! The star of Harry Potter, Rupert Grint, had an ambition to own his own ice cream truck and when he earned a handsome amount from the Harry Potter movies, he bought an ice cream truck for himself.


Meat in ice cream!

Japan has created some of the weirdest flavours ever. This may come as a shock that livestock is also used inside this cold desserts for instance one of the favourites and sought after flavour in Japan is blended raw chunks of horse meat named as Basashi ice, sold in Tokyo markets.

Another shocking flavour popular in Japan is ox/cow tongue flavour.


Fig and fresh brown turkey

The sweet-toothed scientists at New York City’s Il Laboratorio del Gelato have never met a flavour they didn’t like — or want to turn into an ice cream. And thus they introduced fig and fresh brown turkey gelato, a popular selection among the 200 flavours they have created thus far.


Glow-in-the-dark ice cream

Yes, it does exist! Can you guess the main ingredient? Well, its jellyfish protein! With each lick, the ice cream gets brighter and more luminous.

So how does it work you may wonder? Once the protein is extracted from jellyfish, it reacts with the warm temperature of a tongue and the pH level of the tongue increases to a higher level, causing the ice cream to glow. Since jellyfish protein is expensive, one scoop sells for 140 pounds ($225).


Cold sweat AKA, the ice cream from hell

Created in North Carolina, this stuff is made with three kinds of extremely hot peppers and two kinds of hot sauce, and apparently it will burn not just your mouth, but your fingers as well. The creator requires the fools who try it to be legal adults and to sign a waiver. Yes, no joke. This ice cream is undoubtedly the hottest produced ever.
