Raw Horse Flesh Ice Cream
Yo Japan, I know you’re a little kooky and adventurous sometimes (actually most of the time), but horse flesh ice cream, really? Straight from the horses’ mouth, this flavour takes the cake for the vilest ice cream ever created. You could even say that the mere thought of putting raw horseflesh into ice cream may be enough to emit plenty of neigh… I mean naysayers. Surprisingly, it tastes like vanilla and something very chewy. There is a bonus to this treat (there’s always a bonus), horse meat is lean, so it’s guilt free – kind of…Dying to try this amazing and exotic creation?

There’s nothing bad to say about this flavour; blended with cinnamon, vanilla and a splash of dark rum, it’s the number one choice for a girl’s night in watching romantic comedies.
