Ultimate Unusual Flavors


Fun with Fruit Flavors

Mango-Banana Frozen Yogurt- This yummy treat is flavored with fresh banana and mango, and it gets a little bit of zip from a bit of lime juice. Mix up your flavor routine with this unique taste and break out of your ice cream rut with this light and satisfying frozen yogurt.

Cranberry-Raspberry Sherbet- Sweet and tart, this sherbet will knock your out of your frozen treat funk.

Apricot and Passion Fruit Soft Serve- Talk about original! The exotic taste of passion fruit is tempered here by the familiar apricot, and it totally works!

Time for Tea-flavored Treats

Apricot Earl Grey Ice Cream- This is a tasteful combination of fruit and tea, and it definitely fits the apt cliche fruit-tea!

Lavender Orange Ice Cream- Bet you never thought about flavoring your ice cream with flowers, did you? Well think again, because this seemingly bizzare flavor combination will knock your socks off!

Ultimate Unusual Flavors

Amaretti Cassata (Cream Cheese Ice Cream)- Love cream cheese icing? Extend the trend to your ice cream.

Baron von Brause's Brown Bread Ice Cream- Sounds weird--tastes great!

Aquavit and Pepper Sorbet- Cross cultures with this unusual ice cream made from Scandinavian spirits.

Sweet Potato Pecan Ice Cream- I know, I know. Vegetable ice cream doesn't sound that appetizing. Unusual? Yes. Weird? Yes. Scary? Maybe. Amazingly delicious? Definitely.
