Exotic Ice Cream Flavors 2012
Ice cream continues to be one of the most popular sweets worldwide. No one knows the exact origins of the delightful dessert, but it is assumed to have existed since the second century B.C. Even great historical figures such as Alexander the Great enjoyed the alluring taste of ice cream. When it first appeared in the New World in the 1700s, ice cream was a rare and exotic delicacy for the elite. However, in the 1800s, ice cream manufacturing became an industry in America, which allowed the common people to enjoy ice cream as much as the elites. Ice cream’s popularity started to build through the 1900s, so much that there is even a day to celebrate its goodness-the National Vanilla Ice Cream Day on July 23. Although it commemorates
vanilla ice cream specifically, (and it is true that vanilla is a classic flavor that many Americans still enjoy), many unique and exotic flavors continue to emerge in order to satisfy the increasing number of ice cream consumers.
Ice cream is famous for its cold, sweet and addictive nature. The Cold Sweat from Sunni Sky’s Homemade Ice Cream in Angier, North Carolina is famous for its hot and spicy selection. The Cold Sweat truly lives up to its name. It is made up of an amalgamation of hot sauces and different varieties of chili peppers. The company requests a liability waiver before anyone consumes it, just in case any casualties occur. The Sunni Sky lists a number of health risks and problems such as heart problems, neurological problems and vision problems on the waiver in their Web site. There is even a warning, which states, “What is painful going in may be painful upon exit.”
San Francisco’s Humphry Slocombe’s Secret Breakfast may be considered normal compared to the Cold Sweat. Instead of a mix of spices, the Secret Breakfast is a mix of bourbon and corn flakes. The Humphry Slocombe offers many more names of their ice cream flavors on their Web site, such as the Skull Splitter Root Beer and Russian Imperial Stout.
Garlic is usually used to season dishes, but not when it is used as an ingredient for an ice cream recipe. The garlic ice cream is a popular fad at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
Summer cannot get any better with these new and exciting ice cream flavors to choose from.
