You might be aware that Japanese like to challenge their taste buds with the strangest foods. Anything new, no matter how crazy it is has the potential to turn into a hype. From crazy ramen flavors like cheeseburger to black goth ice cream, in Japan it exists! And now there's something new for those who love the mix of sweet and savory. Get ready for... fried oyster ice cream!

Only Japan's Okayama prefecture (in between Kyoto and Hiroshima) you can get yourself this special Fried oyster ice cream for only 300 yen! Oysters are a specialty in Okayama, they have several dishes including oyster okonomiyaki that are popular in the area. Combining it with ice cream however is a bold choice! According to locals the treat combines milk from the land with milk from the sea, a formula for success?

Apparently this ice cream doesn't taste as revolting as it sounds! The 2 creamy flavors of ice cream and oysters supposedly go well together and the crunch of the fried casing adds an interesting texture! After all it's not the first time that sweet and savory flavors make a great combination! Would you dare to try this fried oyster ice cream? What crazy ice cream flavors do you know? Let us know in the comments below!
