What the hell is Pet Bird-flavored ice cream you ask? Well, apparently it’s exactly what it sounds like, and originated in Torimi Cafe, a spot in Japan where people like to eat surrounded by birds.
The cafe’s new flavors include Cockatiel, Java Sparrow and Parakeet, all which debuted last week at a small bird expo in Osaka. According to the business, the ice cream is made with all-natural ingredients and “once in your mouth, the aroma of a parakeet would spread intensely.”
…According to Torimi Cafe, the Java Sparrow flavor evokes “the feeling of pressing the breast of a java sparrow into your mouth,” while the Cockatiel ice cream emulates that moment “when you’re sleeping with your mouth open and your cockatiel runs over your face and gets its leg in your mouth.” Happens all the time.
I’m going to guess that this is an acquired taste.
