The 15 Craziest Ice Cream Flavors You'll Ever Taste

Don't read this if eating Rocky Road is too much for you!

Ice Cream. It's our go-to summer treat. Ambrosia from the dairy gods.

But vanilla and chocolate aren't the only flavors out there! And I'm not talking Turtle or Rocky Road or Superman ice cream, there are some truly crazy ice cream flavors for you to try out. The sisters at LICK Ice Cream in Indianapolis would like to take you through this taste-testing journey. Buckle up, kids -- we're in for a wild ride!

3. Roasted Balsamic Strawberry

Looking for a savory, yet sweet combination? The balsamic vinegar base creates just enough of a filling foundation as the roasted strawberries and sugar top off this delectable treat.

6. Orange Creme and Clove Bud

Like Orange Dreamsicles as a kid? Now you can enjoy a more mature version of the old classic hit flavor: organic orange extract is used along with clovebud to give a spicier smell and taste.

9. Hot Cocoa Cayenne

I religiously drank Mexican Hot Chocolate this past December at home -- it was one of the most delicious concoctions I have had in years. Now YOU can enjoy the delicious mix of chocolate and cayenne pepper in this savory dairy treat!

11. Blackberry Thyme

You've not become an ice cream aficionado unless you've had every herb and spice in your sweet dairy treats! Blackberries and sugar are boiled down into a sweet compote, which is then swirled into the custard base that has been infused with thyme.

12. Sweet Curry Coconut

Curry? You might be shaking your head. In this recipe, though, the custard base replaces cream with coconut milk and the sweet curry powder gives the mix a little spice, a little sweetness, and a lot of pep.

13. Beet and White Chocolate

Beets look pretty weird...but they create a bright, beautiful fuchsia ice cream that’s as delicious as it looks. Freshly juiced beets and high quality white chocolate combine to make this unusual mixture a hit.

15. Saffron Rosewater

Remember what I just said about flowers? This Persian inspired flavor uses Spanish saffron and organic rosewater to create a wonderfully fragrant and rich custard with a brilliant yellow hue.
