Today, July 1, is Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day

We start July off with National Ice Cream Month as well as today being Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day. What could be finer?

Many things come to mind with Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day. It brings back to mind the list I made a while back of the Top 10 Craziest Ice Cream Flavors. In the meantime, Arianna sent another good one: Thai Black Bean Ice Cream.

This also makes me want to visit Udder Delight Ice Cream House and Jeni's Ice Cream which were also in that post and certainly had some very creative flavors. If you live near Rehoboth Beach, Deleware or Columbus, Ohio, today might be the day to pay them a visit!

I think my most creative flavors have been:
  1. Lisa's White Chocolate Cranberry Cookie Crunch (I promise to post this recipe soon!)
  2. Vanilla Bean Jelly Bean (OK, maybe I just like the name the best!)
  3. Shirley Temple Ice Cream
There are a couple of good ones in the works, but I don't want to post them until they are tried and true!

What is the most creative flavor you have ever tried or made? Post a reply and let us know (be sure to include your email) and enter for a chance to win a coupon for a free pint of Ben and Jerry's! Change of date: Let us know by this Saturday, July 5.

i never see these crazy flavours you speak of! I am going to have to start looking harder!

Weirdest Ive had is Green Tea, but thats fairly common really :S

I actually tried Red Bean at our local chinses restaurant and it was surprisingly very good. It had more of a spicy flavor like Ginger does rather than sweet.

I've made 2 slightly odd flavors:

1. David Lebovitz's Candied Bacon Ice Cream - delicious! But only the first night. After that, the bacon got unpleasantly rubbery in the ice cream. Recipe: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/archives/2008/03/candied_bacon_i_1.html

2. Toasted Sesame Vanilla - the base base delicious but I didn't like the texture of the sesame seeds - next time I would leave them out.

Tina, you can't enter since you co-blog with me! ha! :)

Tany: surprisingly enough, I have never had green tea!

xsquared: I MUST try the candied bacon -- have a few bacon lovers in my life. I might leave the sesame for tina to make -- I hate sesame flavored things.

I'm off for the long weekend! Happy fourth and I'll pick a winner on Sunday when I return, so if you submit a creative flavor by the end of the day on Saturday, July 5, you will be entered in the drawing -- nope, T, you still can't enter! ;)

I didn't try this because it really looked disgusting, but we had a friend whose favorite concoction was Mint Chocolate Chip with a dollop of peanut butter mixed in!
