10. Deep Fried Oyster Ice Cream

3. Jellyfish Ice Cream
Kamo Aquarium in Tsuruoka, Yamagata Prefecture has a restaurant specialized in jelly fish recipes. One of its popular items is this Jelly Fish Ice Cream. When you eat it, you can taste a sort of grainy, jelly-ish textures. It’s low in fat contents, making it a perfect dessert for calorie-conscious crowd!
2. Mamushi Snake Ice Cream
Mamushi is one of the most venomous snakes in Japan and also a popular, traditional ingredient of Chinese medicine. According to an user review, the ice cream smells like an old shoe when you open up the lid, and tastes like rotten garlic and cardboard when you eat it.
Cockatiel Flavored Ice Cream mimics that particular smell of a cockatiel (if you’ve ever own one, you’d notice it’s that exact smell). Many reviewers reported it fills your mouth with the smell of birds. It doesn’t actually contain any bird parts (fortunately), but instead it’s made with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and apple bits.
In addition to the cockatiel ice cream, there are also a parakeet flavored ice cream, and a java finch flavored ice cream. I just don’t understand the mindset of someone wanting to imitate a bird flavor with ice cream! Do they secretly want to taste their pet birds?
