Daily Scoop: Olive Oil Ice Cream

Yesterday we showed you an avocado ice cream from Mercedes of Desert Candy and her twenty days of ice cream. Today is one other that we just found so intriguing...

Olive oil ice cream! And it comes with balsamic chocolate sauce. Amazing.

Mercedes says that this strange flavor is actually quite common in Italy and the Italian neighborhoods of New York. If fact, sometimes ice cream is served with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt! Mario Batali's restaurant Otto serves olive oil ice cream in New York.

She says that the fruity olive flavors blend very well with the cream for a refreshing and surprising treat. Has anyone ever tried olive oil ice cream?
