Crocodile ice cream is made from unfertilized croc eggs

If you thought eating Balut (fertilized duck eggs) was weird, get a load of this. In the southern part of the Philippines, the Sweet Spot ice cream store at the Davao Crocodile Park serves ice cream mixed with unfertilized croc eggs.

The croc ice cream comes in three flavors: crocodile dragon fruit, crocodile durian, and crocodile pandan. According to shop owner Biana Dizon, the eggs are composed of 80 percent yolk, making it the healthier option between it and chicken eggs.

The idea for the unique dessert came when Dizon and her husband received croc eggs from their uncle, who just happens to own the Davao Crocodile Park. Of course, they didn’t’t know what to do with the eggs – who would? So they decided, ‘what the heck, let’s make reptile ice cream!’

When asked about the taste, she said, ‘You can really taste the difference and realize how the crocodile egg yolks enhance the texture of the ice cream. It’s so smooth and creamy’.

Would you be willing to try this definitely ‘artisan’ ice cream?
