Weíre living in a time of peak ice-cream innovation: There are doughnut cones (http://firstwefeast.com/eat/doughnut-ice-cream-cones-are-a-g-o-a-t-vessel-for-the-sweet-treat/), churro ice-cream sandwiches (http://firstwefeast.com/eat/churro-ice-cream-sandwiches-from-churro-borough-should-have-happened-sooner/), and pints made from wine (http://firstwefeast.com/eat/a-new-york-dairy-is-making-wine-ice-cream/). Ice-cream makers arenít holding back when it comes to flavors, eitheróremember when Coolhaus added a pizza ice cream (http://firstwefeast.com/eat/coolhaus-pizza-ice-cream/) to its menu? Well, the game shows no signs of slowing down: RocketNews24 writes (http://en.rocketnews24.com/2016/03/17/forget-chocolate-and-strawberry-japan-now-has-fried-chicken-flavored-ice-cream/) that fried-chicken ice cream in now an option in Japan. (Coolhaus also made fried chicken-and-waffles ice-cream sandwiches (https://vimeo.com/40570178) once.)
The flavor was create as a dessert for Japanís annual Karaage Festival. Karaage, or Japanese-style fried chicken, is breaded with panko and often seasoned with garlic and ginger, which will probably give the ice cream all kinds of complexity. The ice cream itself is a soft serve that is the color of fried-chicken breading.
Japanís frozen-treats makers have a history of boldly going where no ice cream has ever gone before. Last year, the Cup Noodles Museum launched a instant ramen-flavored (http://firstwefeast.com/eat/college-kids-rejoice-ramen-ice-cream-is-here/) soft serve. The treat came in two varieties ó soy sauce and curry ramen. The ice cream could even be topped with savory items like ground meat, eggs, leeks, and shrimp.
