    People Are Calling This Weird Ice Cream Combo "Life Changing," So I Decided To Try It

    Ice cream, olive oil, and WHAT?!

    There's not a soul among us who doesn't enjoy ice cream, right?

    MTV

    I scream, you scream, all that jazz.

    But this TikTok posted by @himynameissherrie officially has everyone freaking out with its (TBH) pretty weird combo of vanilla ice cream, olive oil, and Himalayan pink sea salt:

    It uses audio from this TikTok, and @himynameissherrie says in the caption that the OP @fashionlush "changed [their] life" with this combo. Pretty high praise, if you ask me.

    It's created quite a stir on TikTok. Some people are dueting it in complete and utter shock and disgust...

    I'll be honest: this combo did not seem good to me AT ALL, but I was also mega curious. So I decided to get the supplies and try it for myself.

    We got the ice cream, we got the olive oil, we got the pink sea salt.

    I assembled the bowl as instructed...

    ...and then it was time for the moment of truth!

    I'll admit that on the first bite I was a little...confused by the flavors. The olive oil and vanilla ice cream paired surprisingly well together, but the pink sea salt was very, very jarring in my opinion. I think I was also hoping that the flavor combo would straight-up blow my mind, and that just didn't happen.

    BUT something I'll also admit is that I finished the entire bowl! With each bite, it got more and more addicting. I could definitely see this being a favorite among fans of salty and sweet flavor combos, emphasis on the salty. I think the key is knowing how much salt you can handle, and then not overdoing it when you dust it onto the ice cream.

    In the end, I got to eat ice cream for breakfast, so I'm not complaining!!! Here's to being an adult addicted to TikTok in quarantine.
