The Internet’s Losing Its Mind Over Mayo-Flavored Ice Cream
We’re generally all right with mixing savory and sweet when it comes to our ice cream varieties, but the latest flavor mashup has the internet besides itself. Mayonnaise ice cream (yes with real Hellmann’s mayo) is the latest creation from a creamery in the UK. People are seriously flipping out over the idea.
ICE artisan ice cream in Falkirk, Scotland, posted a photo of the unusual flavor to Instagram captioned, “Who knows a mayo addict?” and people are having strong reactions. linny70I thought it was “#justwrongonsomanylevels” but then after trying it says, “It’s actually really nice, creamy, and rich.” denadesimone joked, “What gets me is the sprinkle of mayo on the top like icing. How could you?” curvygirllingerie interjected, “JUST. NO! And, I love mayo.” ishii_lbc went so far as threatening to report this page for hate content and added, “How dare you desecrate the honor of ice cream with this monstrosity?! Ew! No! *recoils in horror*”
The mayo ice cream debate has expanded from Instagram to Twitter, where a few folks did not hold back from are voicing their opinions:
Apparently, there's an ice cream place in the UK that now serves #mayoicecream . Sorry to be rude if that's your thing…no, I'm not. 🤮

makes sense – sour cream would work too

If you aren’t freaked out enough yet, on ICE’s Facebook, a fan, Nidal Saed, shared, “I want one soooo bad. I love mayo. I can eat it by the spoon.” Okay, you do you…
As for us, we’re just not sure: Mayo’s richness and saltiness could pair well with ice cream, though the vinegar-y taste has us a little wary. Both items serve us in different ways, but do they really need to be in a relationship? Probably not.
If you want to try it though, it’s probably pretty easy to just squirt some mayo, like chocolate syrup, directly into your vanilla ice cream right at home. No judgments, obviously.
