Bizarre foods such as dog meat, patal bageri (rat meat), and rotten potatoes among others are consumed around the country but have you ever heard of bizarre ice creams. After chocolate maggi and oreo bhajiyas, the latest to join the fad is a freakish ice-cream flavour that has left netizens frustrated.

Writer and film critic Sucharita Tyagi, on Wednesday, took to Twitter to share a new ice-cream that has been making news lately. Sharing a picture of the ice cream that left many disgusted, Tyagi wrote, "The end is nigh. Also, eww."

Yes, you got that right. An ice-cream in Chyawanprash flavour. Tyagi shared another tweet where she wrote, "Can you IMAGINE someone actively wanting to eat CHYAWANPRASH FLAVORED ICE CREAM who comes up with this stuff." The tweet received mixed reactions. Twitterati were scratching their head as to how someone could come up with such a flavour and spoil the happiness that 'Ice-cream' brings.

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira Kashyap was also shocked and in disbelief. She wrote "Yikes!" One user wrote "What what what who wants to eat this ??? Yikessssss", while another said "And people say it's not the end of the world. Nai matlb aur kya bacha h. Haldi and garlic flavour ice-cream?" One user said "Never gonna try even out of curiosity!!!"
