High’s Ice Cream made this when I was a kid. It was disgusting, even for kids.

Would try at least once. Dill with it.

Pretty sure the Chinatown ice cream factory has been doing this for years. They regularly make a durian flavor. And their rotating wacky flavors often feature things like seaweed and various meats. Think they had soysauce ice cream one time. Pickles would be a surprisingly normal flavor for them.

Every time you go in there there’s something different.

Same thing with a pretty (in)famous ice cream shop in Venezuela back when i was a kid. They specialized in crazy flavors from onion to ground beef and everything in between. I would definitely try the pickle ice cream but i doubt i’d be able to eat too much of it.

I had something similar at a Mexican ice cream shop in town. (Where I live is about 50% latin)

Salted cucumber with chili flakes. While it sounds weird, the worst part was that they used wayyy too much salt.


#7

Sweet and salty goes together like lamb and tuna fish.


#8

Like Claudia Gonson and Stephin Merritt.


#9

But they have to pay for it with dill dough.


#10

b…but the best part about a pickle is the texture…and the best part of ice cream is the flavor…

This is quite the solution in search of a problem.

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

I think that was happening already by accident.


#16

I think you’ve got that backwards.

Maybe you’re eating the wrong pickles and ice cream?
