Wasabi ice cream is really as creative and extreme as it gets when it comes to ice cream. While you may be more used to sweet favorites like chocolate and vanilla or perhaps highly palatable fruity flavors like strawberry or mango, leave it to the Japanese to innovate the heck out of ice cream by making one that tastes like wasabi.
In a weird and twisted way, this ice cream makes some sort of sense. It brings together the vicious heat of wasabi -- which strikes late -- with the cooling effect of ice cream. For those of us who like the taste of wasabi but aren't fans of turning red in the face and experiencing burning in our throats and noses, this ice cream could help.
Who said wasabi was just for sushi? I'm all for marrying the seemingly unrelated worlds of ice cream and horseradish. Bringing opposites together sometimes leads to something beautiful.
