Would You Try These Bizarre Thanksgiving-Themed Ice Cream Flavors?

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and while many people don't think of ice cream as a traditional winter treat, they may be tempted to grab some plastic spoons and dig in after hearing about some of these delectable-sounding Thanksgiving ice cream recipes!

These frozen treats are currently available online at west coast-based Salt and Straw Creamery. The "Thanksgiving Dinner of Ice Cream Series" costs a whopping $65 plus shipping for five pints -- one of each flavor. Check out some of these absolutely outrageous creations!

Sweet Potato Casserole With Maple Pecans
This creation is made by combining roasted sweet potatoes with cream and sugar. Chefs then add caramelized Oregon pecans that add a sweet and maple-y crunch. On top are whipped heaps of homemade maple-flavored fluff.

Persimmon Walnut Stuffing
Think of a warm spice cake turned into ice cream, and that's the base of this delectable dessert. Chopped up pieces of stuffing add to the texture, and when toasted with walnuts and bourbon raisins, create a savory and rich flavor profile. Locally sourced roasted persimmons make this flavor complete.

Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey
Don't get too freaked out - you won't find actual pieces of turkey meat in this ice cream. But you will find tiny pieces of candy-coated skin, which creates a stunningly savory profile. Turkey stock is also a part of the base, as are sugar, other spices, and even onions. Don't be deceived -- once you grab plastic spoons and start digging into this delicious flavor, you may have to quit cold turkey!

Buttered Mashed Potatoes And Gravy
Mashed potatoes are a classic staple of any Thanksgiving dinner. Surprisingly enough, it starts with a potato-flavored ice cream made with real potatoes. Afterward, chefs stir in a homemade gravy fudge to add some savory sweetness. This results in an explosion of flavor that features all the layers and tastes of potatoes, chocolate, and even coffee.

Spiced Goat Cheese And Pumpkin Pie
Finally, this unique treat starts with a simple yet eccentric goat cheese ice cream. It's then sprinkled with traditional pumpkin pie spices and loaded with rich mashed pumpkin.

"If there were ever an ice cream that actually warms your face, this is the one. It’s the perfect end to a Thanksgiving meal of ice cream," writes Brittany Martin in Los Angeles Magazine.

According to a recent survey of International Ice Cream Association member companies, vanilla remains the most popular flavor among their consumers at 28%. Of course, adventurous souls may find these flavors a bit more appetizing! Do any of these creations sound appealing to you? If so, grab some friends and plastic spoons and dig in!
