Mayo ice cream

By Naomi Berners

Nothing sounds more refreshing than a nice, delicious mayonnaise ice cream...right?!

Mayonnaise is an acquired taste at the best of times - you either love it or hate it.

But even the biggest mayo fan may question their loyalty when faced with mayonnaise ice cream, which is actually now a thing.

The owner, Kyle Gentleman, told Today that the ice cream is a "full on hit of fat and cream followed with an eggy milky aftertaste." 

Whilst it may sound like a weird concoction, let's just clarify that ICE also stocks the likes of Monster-flavoured ice cream (yep, as in the energy drink), Strongbow Dark Fruits and Guinness.

The Mayo ice cream has divided opinions on social media, with some expressing a big flat-out NOPE from the off: 

Whilst others are more cautiously optimistic about the idea.

Those who have been brave enough to taste it have explained it as "strange...not as eggy as you'd expect, in fact quite creamy and sweet."

Sounds... delightful?
