Mmmm, nothing cools down those hot summer days like a scoop of raw horse flesh ice cream. If you thought Americans have screwed up some foods, it looks like there’s some stiff competition out there.
“Raw Horseflesh Ice Cream (Basashi Aisu):We’re not horsing around with this one. There mere thought of putting raw horseflesh into ice cream may be enough to produce plenty of neigh … er, naysayers. And, rightfully so. You can get it straight from the horse’s mouth, this would have to vie for the vilest ice cream ever created. The chunks of meat inside it offer ample proof of why horseflesh is usually used in dog food. Not wanting to be a nag, this flavor needs a definite gee-up. The only saving grace is perhaps that tonight’s dessert could well have been last week’s odds-on favorite.”
Anyway, you can check out more contesting flavors here. Those with weak stomachs, beware.
And by the way, I once ate horse. It was awful, tuff and chewy. And I felt guilty later. At the time I was in an Uzbek cafe in Moscow, suffering a nasty cold, and medicating myself with vodka. Somewhere I have pictures.
