For the meat lovers who feel left out with the veggie ice creams, now it's your turn. What say you to some traditional foods from the British Isles, like pork pie, bangers and mash or haggis ice cream? (No, haggis isn't a misspelling of Häagen Dazs. It's a Scottish dish made of minced sheep organs cooked inside the poor beast's stomach.) Not appealing? Try another island's innovations: In Japan, you can satisfy meaty cravings with cow tongue, pit viper and raw horse flesh ice creams.

These are just some of the unexpected ice cream flavors and ingredients you can find in stores and online. As long as there are ice cream makers, people will experiment with unique and surprising ingredients. Maybe a few will even make you wonder why you didn't think of it first!
