10 Surprising Ice Cream Flavors You Must Try Right Now

Would you like some tilapia ice cream?


(SPOT.ph) It may be the rainy season, but no time is a bad time to have some ice cream. We know this sweet treat is one of the best ways to top off any meal, but why not go the extra mile with flavors that just scream “surprise?” Local artisans have been surprising us with unique twists on these milky desserts, and here we list down some of the most bizarre and one-of-a-kind flavors for daring foodies.



Tilapia Ice Cream from Bistro United (P55/scoop)

While this flavor sounds a little fishy, we promise it will surprise you in the best way possible. Bistro United's tilapia ice cream gives us a break from the usual onslaught of sweets by combining the savory taste of fish and the spiciness of chili flakes. You won't look at tilapiaor ice cream—the same way again.


Bistro United is at D-Strip Building, 20 United Street, Kapitolyo, Pasig City.

Garlic Nuts and Beer from Carousel Creamery (P95/scoop)

Carousel Creamery boasts at least 101 flavors, so we’re not really surprised that they came up with an ice cream flavor that involves garlic nuts and beer. Those who like a little alcohol in their dessert will enjoy this refreshing flavor that features some crunchy goodness in between.


Carousel Creamery is at 8 Missouri Street, Greenhills, San Juan City.




Bacon Crisp Nitro Cream from Joseph’s Ice Cream (P190/scoop)

We love bacon, so we’re loving the sound of the Bacon Crisp Nitro Cream from the genius minds behind Joseph’s Ice Cream. Expect the mix of sweet and savory in every bite as bits of crispy bacon are mixed in with their signature creamy nitrogen ice cream—and of course, there’s more bacon to top it all off!


Joseph's Craft Ice Cream is at 4/F EDSA Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City.



Butterbeer from Up in the Clouds (P95/scoop)

Yes, this flavor from Up in the Clouds is a tribute to the butterbeer we've all dreamed of tasting after we first saw Harry Potter take his first sip onscreen. This take on the popular fictional drink has crushed toffee nuts that give a pleasant break in between bites of rich caramel butterscotch ice cream. It's magic in your mouth!


Up in the Clouds is at 99 G/F Maginhawa Suites, Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City.




Blue Cheese from Dojo Dairy (P100/scoop)

Lover of blue cheese? Then you’ll love this ice cream flavor. Made from their special Hokkaido milk, Dojo Dairy balances out the salty taste of blue cheese to make a sweet and salty harmony like no other. If you want to keep up the adventurous streak, choose from their collection of unique Japanese flavors, like Wasabi, Black Sesame, or Seaweed ice cream.


Dojo Dairy is at Greenhills Promenade, San Juan City; SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City; and Little Tokyo, Legazpi Village, Makati City.



Katie's Brew by Adam's Ice Cream (P300/half pint)

The next time you debate about whether you want ice cream with a kick of coffee or a hint of alcohol, Adam's Ice Cream has made it easier for you by giving both. Katie's Brew features some thick and creamy dark Sumatran coffee ice cream that's sprinkled with the flavors of genuine Irish Guinness. Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?



Order Adam's Ice Cream at MetroMart.



Earl Grey Tea from Merry Moo (P115/scoop)

We’ve all heard how green tea–or matcha–can be turned into any dessert. But would you ever have imagined doing the same for earl grey tea? This dessert is made by steeping some of the tea leaves with Merry Moo’s super creamy ice cream base. The shop is also home to a lot of quirky flavors like Candied Bacon, Cheesy Mamon, and Black Sesame Oreo.


Merry Moo is at 4/F SM Aura, Taguig City; and 2/F Bridgeway SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.




Ketchup Mayo Fries from Freezer Burn (P90/scoop)

Yes, you read that right. Our favorite side of fries can be enjoyed as a sweet dessert thanks to Freezer Burn. Choose to have the ice cream on its own or turn it into a sweet and salty dish by pairing it with some thick fries. We’d totally take it up a notch with Freezer Burn’s twister fries.


Freezer Burn is at G/F Q3, Bonifacio High Street, 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City.



Tinutong na Kanin from Manila Creamery (P100/scoop)

Another distinctly Filipino flavor that comes to life in a refreshing treat is Manila Creamery’s Tinutong na Kanin or burnt rice ice cream. Anyone who’s ever tried it will tell you about its delicious and distinct bittersweet flavor of this local delicacy. Don’t miss out on Manila Creamery’s other takes on unique flavors like Mangga’t Suman with Latik and Carrot Cake.

Avocado with Tanduay Rhum from Papa Diddi’s (P69/scoop)

If you like the taste of avocado goodness in your ice cream, then you’ll enjoy Papa Diddi’s take on this well-loved flavor. They mix in some alcohol in the concoction to give the avocado cream base a little extra kick. The mix of sweet ice cream together with a hint of rum will feel like a party in your mouth.
