Whether it’s sex or actual ice cream, people are no longer content with vanilla; they want to try new things, experiment with the unusual or even taste the forbidden! We're living in a time when there’s been real breast milk ice cream on sale in the UK, so, truly, anything is possible. Less controversial and perhaps more intriguing are these unusual ice cream flavours available here on the rock, in Malta.

Hobz tal-Malti flavour

Pjazza Gelateria brings you this special recipe that’s more surprising than cookie ice cream. Here’s also how to make Hobz tal-Malti flavoured ice cream at home.

Helwa tat-tork flavour

Staying on the theme of Maltese traditional foods, we get Helwa tat-tork flavour from Sotto Zero. Just imagine that yummy sticky sweet in a creamy soft and refreshing version.

Carob flavour

More traditional local flavours feature in this carob ice cream from a restaurant called Townhouse No. 3. If it’s anywhere as good as gulepp (carob syrup) or karamelli (carob boiled sweets), this one must be a winner.

Salted Caramel flavour

A rare combination of the sweet and salty, this ice cream from Amorino deserves a place here as it reputedly is able to make grown men cry with taste bud emotion.

Voted #1 for unusual ice cream flavours

Hands down you voted Pjazza Gelateria the best place to go for unusual ice cream flavours which are delish - guaranteed. Try the afore-mentioned hobz tal-Malti (Maltese bread) flavour and the bajtar tax-xewk (prickly pear) flavour among many others!
