Fireweed is native to the Last Frontier. It’s sweet floral flavor combines the plant’s bright pink leaves with honey.


Corn on the cob is a summer essential throughout the United States, but in some areas of the Southwest and Mexico, sweetcorn ice cream is the preferred summer essential.


4. Goat Cheese 

How did it take so long for this to become a thing? Goat cheese and forrest berry swirl ice cream. Yum!


5. Ube

Purple yams give this ice cream its bright violet color. It has a sweet vanilla flavor with a tropical flare. No word on whether the purple hue you’ll give you cold-looking lips.

Only in New England would you almost expect to find lobster ice cream. Served at Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium, the butter flavored ice cream is topped with chunks of cooked lobster.



Fresh herbs can make for surprisingly refreshing desserts — think mint anything! Now, it’s basil’s turn to show how delicious it can be outside of salads and sauces. The peppery, aromatic flavor make this pale green dessert a highly craveable scoop for summer.


8. Squid Ink

Squid ink ice cream is already possibly the flavor of summer 2017, so keep your eye out for this mild flavored, bold colored ice cream whether it’s in black or grey.


9. Horchata

The newest creation of Little Damage Ice Cream in Los Angeles brings the classic sweet, cinnamon rice milk flavor to a waffle cone, while the color comes naturally from an infusion of charcoal.


10. Sweet Potato

If you’ve ever had a sweet potato loaded with cinnamon, marshmallows and maple syrup, this one almost makes sense.
