Forget about vanilla, neapolitan and all other traditional ice cream flavours for a moment. How willing would you be to try out ketchup or mayonnaise-flavoured ice cream? Believe it or not, these are just some of the weirdly unique ice cream options that some people in London are exploring, Metro reports.
With the United Kingdom (UK) and other parts of Europe experiencing their hottest summer yet, ice cream is one of the go-to snacks for citizens.
The Ice Cream Project has created a range of rather unique “cupboard classics,” including condiments or other food items typically found in a person’s pantry, like ketchup, mayonnaise and even baked beans.
Hannah Wearne, a retail associate at a service provider, said the project is all about elevating everyday flavours.
“So we’ve taken British store cupboard classics and turned them into ice creams, so we have flavors like Heinz Baked Beans, mayo, ketchup, we also have Quaker Rolled Oats, PG Tips, all of the fun things that you usually get in your store cupboard,” Wearne said.
One excited customer is quoted as having said: “We came early this morning, we’ve been so excited the whole day and we had to come and try all these amazing flavors. I’m so impressed, it’s such fun and it’s great for the kids and yeah, we were excited.”
Some of the other flavours sound more palatable, including Kellogg’s Frosties and Coco Pops and soy.
“We’re delighted that The Ice Cream Project has been extremely popular. In the afternoons this sometimes means long queues (particularly at weekends) and we may not be able to serve everyone before closing time. We will always do our best to serve as many people as possible, there may be days when we have to close the queue in order to avoid the disappointment of anyone waiting unnecessarily,” The Ice Cream Project said on its website.
