Scallop is one strange ice cream flavor that you certainly don’t expect to see on the menus of most creamery shops. But the Aomori Prefecture in Japan is definitely not your average ice cream shop.
The shop describes that “the saltiness and sweetness of scallops is the best match for fresh milk.” Those who have tried this strange ice cream flavor say that it “definitely tasted like scallops,” but the taste wasn’t so overpowering that the ice cream couldn’t be enjoyed.
The soft serve scallop ice cream would make for an interesting mix of flavors fit for those with an adventurous palate. It looks just like a regular vanilla-flavored cone, so you might want to double check the next time you're in Japan and ordering ice cream.
