Nope, that's not spaghetti... can you guess what it really is? I'm curious to see how many Vinglers have heard of this popular German dessert, Spaghettieis! It's actually... ice cream! With strawberry sauce and sprinkles that look like cheese. Weird, but it sounds pretty good!
Learning of this dessert made me want to find more weird desserts. Let's check them out!
Sweet Corn Ice Pops
I just can't imaging corn being a good flavor for a dessert. This has actual chunks of corn in it... so strange! Oddly enough, these are popular in countries like Mexico and South Korea... so maybe it has global appeal after all!
Sweet Corn, Take Two
But that sweet corn ice cream's got nothing on this one. Scroll through the pictures above to see what's hiding underneath that wrapper...it looks like actual corn! WTF?!?
Corn Cake Pops
What the... WHY is everyone so obsessed with corn-themed desserts?? I guess when you consider the craftsmanship, these are pretty impressive. But also, WHY did someone make these??
Corn Flavored Kit Kats
And finally... the mother lode. Corn flavored Kit Kats. THIS IS A REAL THING. I had heard of the cool green tea flavored Kit Kats available in other countries, but corn?!?! People are taking this corn obsession WAY TOO FAR.
Wasabi Ice Cream
I feel really sorry for all the people who mistook this for pistachio.
Fake Food Desserts
Okay, okay, very clever. But yet again, my question is: WHY do we need cupcakes that look like mashed potatoes?!? Just make them look like cupcakes, and I'll eat them gladly. Okay fine, maybe I'll eat them either way. But I won't be happy about it!!
Speaking of dessert that looks like food, here's food that looks like dessert. A family favorite, the Meat Cake! Frosted with mashed potatoes, obviously. What frat bro discovered Pinterest and decided to make this?!?
Now THERE'S a meat dessert I can get behind. If that's a maple glaze, even better. Has anyone here ever tried a bacon dessert before? Sounds incredible!!
You don't even want to know what this one is. It's a Japanese dessert that combines a classic French madeleine with... tuna. Yep. This guy tried it and blogged about it – apparently NOT a winning combination.
Another Japanese pastry, this time modeled after a fish's severed head, and filled with red bean paste and – wait for it – bits of tuna. What could go wrong?? I know there's such a thing as cultural differences in taste, but I seriously wonder if anyone actually likes these.
And finally, to put the metaphorical cherry on top...
Breast Milk Ice Cream
Ohhhh boy. Who thought this was a good idea, and WHO is the target audience? Babies? Adults? Either way, there's no way this is a good idea. Blegh. Humans are not cows, people! The milk does NOT taste the same! Or at least, that's what my mom told me after breastfeeding three kids, and having to test the milk for temperature before giving it to us. Ew. You're gross, mom.
