Guinea pig ice cream is the real deal in Ecuador

A stall next to a major highway near the Ecuadorian capital is selling guinea pig-flavored ice cream cones.
While in most countries, guinea pigs (or 'cuy') are seen as cute little pets rather than as tasty meals, in some parts of Latin America it is not at all unusual for them to be served up as a traditional hot dish.

Now one vendor has taken things to another level by offering guinea pig-flavored ice cream - a delicacy comprised of actual guinea pig meat combined with milk or cream.

Maria del Carmen Pilapana, who runs the stall, sells up to 150 scoops of it every single week.
She also sells ice cream flavored with beetles and other unpalatable things.

"My family and my husband thought I was crazy," she said.

"They didn't think anyone would like these ice creams, but now they're our main product."

Awful. Why not human balls flavored cream, I am sure it would taste the same and is organic. A mad mad word!

Seen some roasted guinea pig out there in Ecuador, eating rabbit is mostly the same thing... but eating it in ice cream is a bit strange. Still we have bacon ice cream...   https://www.food.com/recipe/bacon-maple-ice-cream-359986

Ya' know..I like meat too but I really like to keep the main course and dessert separate, the idea of bacon/guinea pig/beef/ etc combined with sweet cream doesn't exactly elicit a "yummy" response in my mind.

No worse than barbecue sauce, mint jelly or glazed ham.
