Poke around on the internet and you'll find no shortage of listicles about the "world's weirdest ice cream flavors." There's some scary candidates therein—once you hear of whale puke ice cream (served in the most terrifying/awesome ice cream bowl of all time, let's all get one and have a Hannibal party), you can't un-hear it.

The weirdest ice cream I've ever eaten would have to be my pal Ethan's Peking duck ice cream. The weirdest I've made? A caramel ice cream with duck fat and soy sauce that's like a sloppy kiss from a drunk supermodel. And the weirdest-sounding ice cream I've actually wanted to try? Alton Brown's gin, grape juice, gummy bear, and prune business, which is so crazy it just might work. "It had to have the gin or I wouldn't have liked it as much," he points out.

Okay, that's me. Now your turn: what's the weirdest ice cream flavor you've tried, seen, or made?
