SUPER-DUPER FLAVORS

Everyone loves the classics, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Some countries and people however, like to try new things. In Massachussettes, Ben and Bill's made a lobster flavored ice cream. It was vanilla ice cream with real pieces of lobster meat in it. Some countries try even stranger flavors. In Japan you can buy octopus, horseflesh, cow tongue, and shrimp flavored ice cream. They also have garlic, soy-bean, and kelp flavored for the vegetarians. In Berkshire, you can order sardines or crab on toast flavored ice cream. In Dorset, they came up with a chili flavored ice cream. I think I'll stick to the classics.
