The only one on that list that sounds weird is the cheese flavor, being that it was cheddar-like. Everything else on there has a sweet property to it so it's not a suprise that it was made into a ice cream.

Gilroy in Northern Cali has a shop that makes the best Garlic ice cream. Every year they have a garlic festival too with dozens of different dishes all made a predominant garlic flavor. One of the best that I remember was Grilled Baby Artichokes (there are artichoke farms south of Gilroy near Monterey) with a Lemon and Roasted Garlic Aioli.

Ironchef, I think garlic ice cream is far weirder than cheese ice cream, being that garlic has no sweet property at all (to your point) and with other indescribable properties that assault the senses Cold, creamy, sweet garlicky taste? Ew. But ok, I'll try it anyway since you think its good.

Roasted garlic is sweet. That's closer to what the ice cream tastes like that raw garlic.

Green Tea Ice Cream
2 cups thickened cream
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 large eggs
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons green tea leaves, ground to a powder

Bring cream, milk, and salt to the boil in a saucepan and remove from heat. Whisk together eggs, sugar, and tea (tea will not be completely dissolved), then add 1 cup hot cream mixture in a slow stream, whisking vigorously. Whisk custard into remaining cream mixture in saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until thick enough to coat back of spoon (do not let boil). Immediately pour custard through a fine sieve into a bowl, then cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Chill, covered, until cold, at least 1 hour. Freeze in ice cream maker, then transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden.


Lemongrass Ice Cream
3 cups milk
4 stalks chopped lemongrass, white part only
250g sugar
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped
3/4 cup egg yolks
2 cups heavy cream

In a saucepan, simmer milk with lemongrass and reduce by one-third. Steep several hours or overnight. Strain out lemongrass and heat with sugar and vanilla bean. Bring to scalding. Whisk the yolks. Temper the yolks by adding only a ladle of hot milk to the yolks. Mix well then add tempered yolks back to the saucepan. Whisk constantly over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain and cool in an ice bath. When mixture is cooled add cream. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. If desired serve with chopped pineapple mixed with chopped mint leaves, and coconut macaroons.
Gorgeousness! I am copying those too, thank-you Daisy!

One of my very favourite ice cream flavours is, rose petal. I know that this isn't for everyone (some people tend to associate the taste of roses with soap or perfume) but I just adore it.

In Ireland I've heard tell of (I haven't see or tried it) Guinness ice cream - that might be interesting. Bailey's flavour is popular here too (I think B&J make a version of it?)

Yeah Piccolina I have seen a recipe for Guinness ice cream. It actually sounds like a great choice for ice cream to me. Guinness is very creamy and has a sweetness to it that would lend itself perfectly to a frozen treat IMO.

Piccolina, I've never had rose-flavored ice cream but I know I'll like it because I love rose-flavored (parisian-style) macarons.
