Hummus Ice Cream: Delicious or Disgusting?

What happens when you take two amazing, creamy foodstuffs and combine them into a single product? That's what the owner of an ice cream shop in Jaffa, Israel, asked himself before he created hummus-flavored ice cream. Hummus is a Middle Eastern chickpea spread that actually has the same consistency as ice cream, but the olive oil and garlic overtones make it an odd choice for an ice cream flavor.

La Genda owner Michael Mina told an Israeli television station, "I am a hummus freak. I always thought that one day we should make ice cream out of hummus, and after many experiments, we checked the right temperature, the right kind of grains, and achieved the perfect product." Boris Schwartz, who actually makes the ice cream, said, "It is a little strange, not for everyone, it's for people who like special things." They've also tried garlic ice cream, and are working on an avocado flavor. Think you could stomach hummus ice cream?

    The name itself sounds nasty. Hummus sounds like a horrible disease, tumor or something disgusting attached to a body part. Gotta go to the doctor to get the hummus removed from my.... The hummus caused an infection in my....... I went to work and got a bad case of hummus. There is a severe hummus infection going around causing a high temperature. Better get your hummus shot before you spread it to others. I coughed up a half a pint of hummus. Seems maybe the mucinex green mucus is a lot less frightening then a nasty hummus infection. It's a horrible name for something that is supposed to taste good. And I don't care if it is good or tasty.. It sounds nasty

    I would try it. I've had cayenne chocolate ice cream before and it was surprisingly delicious. Other seemingly incompatible flavors have made a really good ice-cream before.

    Hummus is ok. Don't love the stuff but occasionally I'll buy some. As a compatible component of ice cream, I don't think so. If I came across someone who had hummus ice cream I'd try the concoction though.

    if you make it savory instead of sweet, it could be really tasty. I'm a huge hummus fan, so I would be willing to try some

    Hummus should be warm. It's supposed to be very aromatic, in addition to tasting savory and divine.

    barely edible/ The concoction gives me the feeling that someone tried to make ice cream using Oatmeal or Mashed potatoes and made the choice of The More sweetener the better. and the second try; the less sweetener the better.
    Perhaps we have messed with that which ought not to be messed with
