New Hampshire in the Morning

Wacky Ice Cream Flavors
Wacky Ice Cream Flavors

Lobster

Where: Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium, Bar Harbor, Maine, and Northampton and Vineyard Haven, Mass.

Seafood in your ice cream? In Maine, America’s lobster capital, and Massachusetts, a close runner-up, it’s not unusual to order up a scoop of lobster ice cream. The lobster ice cream is real Maine lobster cooked, picked, buttered and folded into a buttery vanilla ice cream.

Rhubarb & Saffron Champagne Cocktail

Where: Salt & Straw, Portland, Oregon

 

Portland’s cult favorite Salt & Straw came up with Rhubarb & Saffron Champagne inspired by a rhubarb spritzer created by a local bartender. Described as Champagne ice cream with a tart ribbon of saffron and rhubarb jelly.

 

Silver Gulch Forty Below Stout

 

Where: Hot Licks Homemade Ice Cream, Fairbanks, Alaska

 

Beer in ice cream is all the rage. Hot Licks jumped on that brew wagon, with a partnership with Alaska’s Silver Gulch Brewing & Bottling Co., to create a flavor that folds the brewery’s signature Stepping Stone Stout into the ice cream.

 

Whiskey

 

Where: Purple Door Ice Cream, Milwaukee

 

Purple Door uses Kinnickinnic Whiskey – which comes from Milwaukee’s Great Lakes Distillery just up the street -to make this treat with a kick. Purple Door, which opened its first and only scoop shop in April, makes and sells all its ice cream under the same roof.

 

Saison With Sunflower Seeds & Golden Flax

 

Where: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

 

It takes milk from grass-fed cows, mixes it with Lancaster, Ohio’s Rockmill Brewery ale, and adds flax and sunflower and pumpkin seeds.  Once a coveted treat in Columbus, Ohio, Jeni’s is now nationwide, although this flavor is an online exclusive.

 

Bacon Jalapeno Popper

 

Where: Amy’s Ice Creams, Texas

 

The spicy, fried taste of jalapeno poppers, a touch of lime, along with bacon, and cream cheese.

 

Milk and Cereal

 

Where: Afters Ice Cream, Fountain Valley, California

 

As one of the rotating scoops at Afters Ice Cream, the flavor tries to replicate the “beautifully sugared milk” you get after you finish a bowl of cereal. According to the owner: “We took it one step further with our ice cream by creating a specially baked corn flake that has been lightly caramelized, salted and sugared.”

 

Carrot Habanero Pepper

 

Where: Steve’s Ice Cream, Brooklyn, New York

 

Steve’s Ice Cream- in business since the early ’70s – makes this carrot-infused treat that gets spice from the habanero peppers and silky sweetness from coconut cream, carrot juice and organic bourbon vanilla extract.
