I’ll Have the Eel Sundae with a Cherry on Top

Yep, it’s actually eel-flavored ice cream. With a handy packet of sanshō pepper on top for your take-out dining pleasure! At the Cup Ice Store you can buy individual servings of this and many other flavors that at best might be described as…interesting.

India Curry Ice Cream: naan extra
Beer ice cream: gives “hit me with another cold one” a whole new meaning
Does a double dip of Wasabi + Squid = ice cream sashimi?
Eight tentacles-worth of octopus-flavored goodness
It’s okay to eat dessert first with this yakisoba noodle flavored treat
Don’t breathe a sigh of relief quite yet, vegetarians: for you, there’s eggplant.

    1. It would definitely be something to write home about! I admit I didn’t try it, opting instead for a cup of roasted soybean flour flavor with Okinawan black sugar syrup on top. Not at all adventurous!

  1. You don’t even have to go to a wacky ice cream museum to get chestnut ice cream/gelato if you’re there in the fall – it’s totally mainstream. But in case you’re not there during the season, yes, they definitely had chestnut. Also, the department store food halls each have several cake counters selling versions of Mont Blanc, my favorite pastry: swaths of chestnut puree spaghettied all over a cream-covered candied chestnut heart, on a base of meringue. Hmm, I would like to eat one of those RIGHT NOW.
