As the weather starts to get warmer and the days longer, seeing photos of stacked ice cream cones on our social media feeds usually leads to thoughts of sweet treats and strolls through the park. As you imagine yourself walking down the street licking a cone, what flavor comes to mind? Maybe chocolate peanut butter, or if you want to get really crazy, perhaps some salted caramel? Time to up your daydreaming game, because ice cream flavors are getting weirder all the time. Here’s 20 pieces of proof.
