No, the soft serve treat above isn’t black licorice flavor or even a really dark chocolate. It’s a far east favorite called squid ink ice cream and it gets its dark hue from, well, squid ink!
Apparently, squid ink is used in all sorts of Asian and European dishes (mainly pasta and pasta sauces). It doesn’t always come from a squid, either, but is often extracted from the squid’s cousin, the cute and cuddly cuttlefish. We couldn’t find much information on the actual taste of squid ink, but the descriptions we did come across described it as either sweet, salty, metallic or even fishy. Either way, it creates a very unusual looking dish and we’re dying to know… WOULD YOU EAT IT?
