Walls
Ice cream that is, not bricks...

Anyone here in the UK will know that Walls make Ice Cream, very nice ice cream, and sausages, very nice sausages.

Apparently, as I learned recently, they make ice cream because making sausages leaves you with a lot of left over fat, and ice cream is a good place to put it.

But why have they not made sausage flavour ice cream? It would seem the next logical step for their business, and would be the perfect sweet/savoury desert!

Ugh. Do you really have to ask? :)

The two companies were once the same; but are now completely separate. The Ice Cream Walls is actually owned by Unilever and has been for some time. In addition 'Walls magnum classic' is halal; making it highly unlikely that sausage-meat fats are used as such fats are predominantly pork fat.

The correct version of the 'story' is that the Ice Cream wing was started to boost business during hot weather when people bought fewer pies and sausages. Your suggested reason, whilst fun, makes little sense as getting the maximum amount of fat in a sausage is the most important factor in getting it to taste delicious!

That's better than jalapeņo ice cream.
Or tomato ice cream.
Onion ice cream
Liver ice cream

I like sausages, I like ice cream. I don't see the problem? You were probably the one saying 'Cheese? In a dessert? Don't be preposterous!' :D

vincevincevince, thanks for the update! Although, I disagree with your taste of sausages, I'd rather have a lean Lincolnshire, with herbs and stuff in it, than an elongated lump of lard with gristle in it. You must buy economy! ;)

jalapeņo ice cream

Mmmmm, that sounds yummy! Make some and I'll eat it! No, really I would!

kudos for the ņ

Hmmm, you need to watch some Iron Chef! ;)

Maybe I'm just a little too conservative. None of those different ice creams sound appealing to a Kansas boy. And cheese with dessert?! Don't be preposterous! :)

I know of a restaurant - now closed down, and this might be why - which used to have tobacco flavoured ice cream on the dessert menu.

If it were still open it begs the question - would you have to go outside to eat it?

I've also had cumin seed flavoured ice cream. There's something about spicy things and the creaminess of ice cream that just works.

would you have to go outside to eat it?

Only if you were going to smoke it. But that would just get messy.

And cheese with dessert?! Don't be preposterous!

My brother won't eat cheesecake for this reason.
