Grilled Cheese Ice Cream

Grilled Cheese Ice Cream won't be on the permanent menu at Tom Wahl's restaurant in Rochester, New York, but you can make your own from the instructions in the story. The concoction was an April Fool's Day special. The eatery serves up a different strange ice cream flavor every year for the holiday.
"It's grilled cheese that we actually grill on the grill, toast it up, cut it up, and put it in vanilla ice cream," said assistant manager, Jill Folk.

And it's dished out...

"To anybody that will take it," Folk joked.

It's a tradition many look forward to.

"The locals really enjoy it. They've been calling all week to see what kind we're having this year. Generates a lot of fun," said Folk.

It may require an open mind and a bit of bravery but those behind the counter say many enjoy the thrill of trying something a bit different.

Assistant manager, Ken Walsh said, "You have to see the expression on the face. That's what you actually look for and you kind of have fun with it, laugh with the customers."

"I'd give it a ten," a young customer expressed.

I'd give it a pass. Link -via Fark

In South Korea I saw a novel flavor on a big, bright poster in the ice cream shop window: raspberry swirl with chunks of swiss cheese. Now I wish I'd tried it. Grilled cheese? Hmmm...

Tom Wahl's is great. You have to go to the one in Avon, NY though. It's like 15 minutes south of The Roc. Everyone knows the ones in Rochester (mostly in the mall food courts) are gaff.
