I wonder how many ice cream shops exist in the world! I LOVE ice cream.
According to this site (https://www.quora.com/How-many-privately-owned-ice-cream-shops-exist-in-USA):
“There are approximately 80,000 ice cream, gelato and frozen yogurt shops in the U.S. according to the National Dairy Association, making up $18 billion in sales”

Some of the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted is from Argentina, which is probably because of the Italian influence of gelato!
There are so many creative flavors, ways of making ice cream and even different ways of eating it! Let’s explore!!
While in Buenos Aires, Argentina in the tourist city of Tigre I loved to visit Antonio’s!
It’s called Antonio Helados y Cafe!
Here is a picture of the ice cream I found on this site:
Doesn’t it look so creamy? Mmmm….
Here are some interesting flavors I found from this site (you should visit it to see the pictures and descriptions): http://www.delish.com/food/g2795/50-states-crazy-ice-cream-flavors/?slide=36
Pineapple Cilantro Sorbet at Glace Artisan Ice Cream
Cayenne Chocolate at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen
Cardamom Black Pepper Ice Cream at Sonny’s
Honey Avocado at Ivanna Cone
White Chocolate Habanero at Jordan’s Ice Cream
Horseradish at Max and Mina’s
Coconut Curry at The Parlour
Which one would you definitely want to try, and which would you definitely not want to try? I think I’d love to try the cayenne chocolate and well all of them really, except I would definitely not want to try the horseradish…I do not like horseradish, and I can’t do too spicy so the habanero one would be a bad idea 🙂 and black pepper in ice cream to me does not sound appealing, but surely it does to others!
Have you either heard of or made your own unique/crazy/outrageous/out-of-the-ordinary ice cream flavor? I’d love to hear about it! Contact me on the Contact page!
