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?

    Mixing hummus and ice cream is as wrong as combining Judaism with Zionism.

    No mater how good something is, sometimes it doesn't belong in ice cream form. How is hummus going to still be tasty sweet?

    What in the hell where they thinking? Hummus cannot be made sweet, and I insist that all of my ice cream be sweet.

    "The right kind of grains..."

    Oh yes, because grains is defiantly the special inside key to make a beautiful, yummy, delicious ice cream.

    I've never had hummus but it sounds like it would be gross as ice cream. If I'm eating ice cream I expect sweetness.

    It sounds good, as long as the tahini flavor doesn't dominate. I'd definitely try it once. Chickpeas actually have a very mild taste. It's funny how many people will eat nasty, greasy meat pumped full of hormones, but turn their noses up at something as simple and pure as hummus.

    I like hummus but GEESH!! People who like this are probably the same people who like popcorn flavored jellybeans. Last year there was an ice cream shop here in town that made cicada ice cream....just b/c you can, doesn't make it right!!

    I love hummus and all, but I don't think I could stomach eating this! I have been to the ice cream shop in Israel where they make this ice cream, and their ice creams there are delicious. However, something about garlic and cumin and ice cream doesn't work for me.
