Would you eat this crazy ice cream flavor? (And a peek at our 12 Days of Turkey Hill celebration!)

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on December 5th, 2016


Before we get to today’s big question about how tempting a certain unusual ice cream flavor is, we wanted to give everyone a quick sneak peek at what’s in store for December. Loyal Ice Cream Journal readers know that we offer a cool prize at some point during the first week of the month. We won’t be doing that in December because this month’s prizes will happen during our annual “12 Days of Turkey Hill” celebration.

That 12-day, prize-packed extravaganza will kick off on December 12 and run through December 23. It will feature a different ice cream or iced tea-related prize EVERY DAY, and all of the prizes will be vintage items to celebrate our 85th anniversary.

picAnd now, the crazy ice cream flavor…

It’s a treat from the Philippines called malunggay ice cream (that’s it on the right). If extremely green ice cream is your idea of a tasty flavor, then this one is for you! But you’re probably asking yourself, “What’s malunggay, and does it make a good addition to ice cream?”

Malunggay is a plant that grows in tropical climates and is known for its high nutritional value as well as an herbal medicine. As for the taste, it’s somewhat spicy and is often compared to horseradish. As for how it is as an ice cream flavor? Well, you’ll have to travel to the Philippines to find that out, as the flavor is somewhat popular at several ice cream shops in the country.

So, now that you’ve been introduced to malunggay ice cream, the question remains: Would you eat it?
