In Yokohama, Japan, the Zou-No-Hana Café serves a one-of-a-kind desert: the ‘zou no hana’, which translates to, ‘elephant nose ice cream’.

Why am I not even surprised these sausage people popped up in – surprise, surprise – Japan? The latest trend there right now involves slicing sausages to give them arms, legs, eyes, a mouth, and sometimes, hair. They are then cooked (alive!) and set alongside other food items inside bento boxes, waiting for their eventual demise.

It must be a pretty hard time for the guys over at Swedish ice cream maker, GB Glace. Their newly-released popsicle, X-Pop, has taken on X-rated proportions as customers are likening it to a penis rather than the intended rocket shape. Marketed for kids, the popsicle has a yellow, pink, red, orange shaft that leads up to a creamy tip. After a few minutes of sucking, X-Pop bursts out a creamy liquid oozing from within.
