It's one of life's little ironies that while everyone in the States is reading The Omnivore's Dilemma and freaking out about the role of corn in their diets, everyone over here thinks corn is pretty cool. It's the trendiest vegetable. In shopping malls you can buy little cups of hot, sweet corn to munch on.
Perhaps, then, it was inevitable that someone would put corn on ice cream, another mall staple.
In case the ice cream isn't sugary enough, they add a dollop of sweetened condensed milk, a favorite dessert ingredient.
The corn is hot and the ice cream promptly starts melting.
I wouldn't really call it good. But it wasn't as weird as you might think. My problem was the high corn-to-ice-cream ratio. Once the petite scoop of ice cream was gone, what remained was a pile of corn in melty goo. Eww.
