Who doesn't like ice cream? Ice cream is the go-to snack for foodies all around the country, no matter what the weather is like outside. What makes ice cream so delightful is the joy of indulging in a frozen scoop just to have it melt on our tongue! While we have all kinds of delicious flavours like chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch and even the new ones such as bubble gum ice cream, we love this delight in every form. But in all these flavours, have you ever heard of a chilli paste and pork floss ice cream? Sounds weird, right? If the name of this ice cream has put you off, you would be surprised to know that a flavour like this does exist and is sold in McDonald's Thailand! Yes, you read that right!
Now, if you are wondering what this bizarre flavour tastes like, recently, a Canadian food blogger tried it out for you all and gave her verdict! Instagram user, Pearl Mah, who reviews all kinds of foods, flew to Thailand to try this out. In the video, you can see her sitting with a cup of this unique ice cream. She first explains that pork floss is basically pork which is shredded and dried into small particles. Then when she takes a bite into it, she looks at the camera and says, "I am confused. I like all these things individually. It kind of tastes of like you had dinner and then had dessert." She also added, "It feels like there is stuff stuck in your teeth." Check out her full video here:
Since she uploaded this review clip on Instagram, it has been viewed 208K times and has seven thousand likes and several comments. One person wrote, "I don't think I'd like that combination. Separately, yes. Together, no." Another person said, "You described it perfectly. It's like eating ice cream but you're still chewing the last bite of dinner then keep eating to clear your mouth." Someone also added, "Agree. I love all three but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy this."
Many people also said that they would never try such a combination. A user wrote, "I love pork floss; it's like savoury cotton candy- but on top of ice cream?? Hard pass lmao." Another user wrote, "Yes, I like sweet and salty, but this might be over the edge." Someone also said, "I will try anything once, but that's gross."
