Would you eat it? (Jalapeno Strawberry Ice Cream)

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on January 18th, 2013

Strawberries in ice cream is a natural combination. Our own Strawberries & Cream flavor is proof of that. But what if you added jalapeno peppers to that mixture? Would it still be good?

That’s what one ice cream enthusiast did. Rather than tossing jalapenos into the mix, she whipped up a batch of “jalapeno sugar” (pictured below),  which consists of a chopped jalapeno pepper, several slices of candied jalapeno and some sugar. The result is something she describes as ” a mixed message of spicy, cool, and creamy at the same time.”

She seemed to like it. The only question is, would you eat it?

    this sounds so COOL, for something made hot.
    would I eat it, of course.

  2. RonF says:

    Keep the original!

  3. Sheila says:

    oh no!

  4. Jean Sagarese says:

    Sure I would try it

  5. Debbie Sinawa says:

    This doesn’t seem like something I would care for. However, it could be the start of a whole new type of ice cream. Like strawberry, balasamic vinegar. I never had it but I heard that’s supposed to be a good combo.

  6. Ann King says:

    no thanks, I’ll pass. That cannot come close to the original strawberries and cream for good taste. Let’s keep the spicy stuff in the main meal and keep the sweet stuff for dessert.

  7. ellie hudson says:

    I don’t think that is something that I would enjoy, but I know lots of people to put hot sauce on everything and I am sure they would love this combination.

  8. joe barone says:

    Turkey Hill hasn’t disappointed me yet, so yes I would try it

  10. joan kaplan says:

    Absolutely not! It sounds terrible and would ruin the taste of great Turkey Hill ice cream.

  11. Robin Ames says:

    I don’t think it would be something I’d like. Pass.

  12. Juliette says:

    As someone who made ice cream for years, I believe the best strawberry ice cream in the world is TURKEY HILL ! I wouldn’t change it with any kind of spice!

  13. Laura Jane says:

    Yes, I would definately try this Strawberry Jalapeno. Sounds interesting.

  14. Jim in SOMD says:

    Although it looks like any other topping, I think that I would take a pass on adding the jalapeno sugar to top off a perfectly good strawberry ice cream dish. Now the question is, how does the jalapeno sugar taste as a sauce for mexican food?

  15. john says:

    I would try it, But don’t think I would eat it ? than again It just may be better one thinks .

  16. esther says:

    I don’t think so

  17. Elsie Nicolette says:

    I don’t eat hot peppers so even the wonder of Turkey Hill ice cream wouldn’t entice me!

  18. Richard Geier says:

    I am crazy about Turkeyhill strawberry ice cream and one o my favorite jams is jalapeno jam or jelly. So, it sounds like a winner.

  19. Jean Marie says:

    I’m with Esther, “I don’t think so.”

  20. Patti Sherman says:

    No way Jose!

  21. charleen caulk says:

    Not at all.

  22. Nancy N says:

    NOPE!!!!! :O

  23. Caroline of Manalapan says:

    No way in my house. Hubby is waiting for the “Box of Chocolate” to come out in February which for Valentine’s day I will have to get him a few tubs.

  24. LindaR says:

    The only hot sauce on my ice cream, better be Hot Fudge!

  25. Harriet G says:

    Jalapenos would ruin my strawberry ice cream. Therefore, I would not buy it. I might taste a little.

  26. Lou says:

    Strawberry and cream is already a hot combination way add jalapeno peppers.

  27. Debbie F. says:


  28. millie says:

    yes i would eat it had cherry with hot pepper was good

  29. Heather Bruinsma says:

    NO WAY!!! Not a fan of the spicy.

  30. Carol B. says:

    I would sample it out of curiosity. I prefer the cool sweetness of ice cream but live a little …go for it !

  31. Lois Sidelnick says:

    No! don’t ruin your good reputatation, leave well enough alone.
    You will lose me as a good customer.

  32. Bobi says:

    No way! Yuck.

  33. Edie says:

    I’d try it once and then deceide. Probably would prefer a small taste. Hot spicey things are cooled by creamy ingredients so maybe this would be just fine.

  34. Ellen says:

    Sorry No, jalapeno’s and I don’t get along. But I’m sure others would find it yummy.

  35. Jeff says:

    Sure, it could be just as good as pepper jelly over cream cheese.

  36. Sarah says:

    I’m not a big fan of very spicy foods but I would try this. I think the cold and hot combo would be interesting plus milk is the best beverage to take to quell the burning mouth after eating hot foods. Therefore I think the ice cream would cancel out the spiciness.

  37. Barb says:

    I might give it a try!

  38. Donna says:

    Well it might do the trick and help a lot of people lose weight by turning them against ice cream. For myself I would not try it.

  39. Marco says:

    Yes! It reminds me of the taste of jalapeno jelly on toast with cream cheese. It’s hot and spicy contrasted with cool and creamy. The tastes and textures work well together. Something like jalapeno, strawberries and cream (maybe even with a soft graham cracker crumble mixed in?) sounds great!

  40. Norma says:

    Sounds spicy and nicy. Sure I’d try it.

  41. gianna says:

    Most definitely! I think I would even prefer to combine the jalapeño with a dark chocolate ice cream (or any chocolate ice cream). 🙂

  42. Marie says:

    Thanks, but NO thanks. Wouldn’t want to spoil the taste of my TH. Besides, I am not a big fan of hot type food. I will have to pass. Sorry about that!!!!!!!

  43. Stephanie Hanz says:

    I think it sounds like a good combination. I would try it!

  44. Andrea says:

    I would certainly try it but doubt it would ever be our favorite.

  45. connie says:

    Iwould not eat it.I don’t like hot peppers.

  46. Patricia Lysinger says:

    I love Ice Cream but that is one flavor I would have to pass on.

  47. mary ann herrmann says:

    …there’s a “strong” possibility that i just might.

  48. Ron says:

    Sweet & Heat compliment each other! The idea isn’t to overpower the strawberry but to enhance it.

  49. Bob Kessler Jr says:

    I would certainly try it (in a moderate amount). If I didn’t like it I always have all the other Turkey Hill flavors to fall back on.

  50. Dottie Aicher says:

    Sweet & Hot!! What a combo!!

  51. Regina says:

    I’d probably try a sample but prefer my strawberry and cream just the way it is…smooth, creamy, fruity and delicious.

  52. Anita says:

    Never. Why spoil something that’s “scrumptiously” delicious on it’s own………

  53. Marion says:

    That is an adulteration of ice cream!

  54. judiles says:


  55. CHRISTINE says:


  56. ges says:

    Love too!!!

  57. Cheryl says:

    I am not into anything spicy so that would be a no for me.

  58. marie grim says:

    might try it. sweet strawberry and hot peppers. could be a good combo

  59. Pam says:

    As much as I like to try new things, that is not one of them.

  60. Linda S. says:

    NO!! I’m with LindaR. The only thing HOT on my ice cream is Hot Fudge, even though I DO like hot peppers. I just don’t think my stomach would take it!!!

  61. Mary says:

    I don’t eat jalapenos no matter how they disguise them! I want my TH completely cold!

  62. sue says:

    i would probably TRY one bite, but would definitely have to have a large bowl of mint chocolate chip right next to it that I could dive into after the tasting!

  63. Karen says:

    I’d eat an ice cream that was strawberry jalapeno but the photo above isn’t appealing to me

  64. Iverine says:

    This sounds absolutely repulsive to me.
