The stinkiest ice cream ever

I've been so busy at work that I haven't been having too much food fun lately to the point that I am finally going through some stock footage from several months back! I guess that's what stock footage is for... These are mostly pictures of my favorite foods or foods I consume routinely, which means I can write about them months after I take the photos - my memory either very fresh or my experiences so firmly engraved in me that i don't need a refresher on how it tastes, smells, or feels.

The pictures here are an exception. I've only been to Polly Ann Ice Cream Parlor once. I just didn't get around to posting them right after I took them, since I had so much other 'timely' material I wanted to post. But, goodness, my memories from Polly Ann's is SO vivid, I can share with you what I felt and thought two months later... ...it was the Papa Bear's ice cream that twisted my nose like no other ice cream ever has.

Yes, stinky ice cream. Mind you, I usually like stinky, pungent things. I love the Japanese fermented beans, natto, and I prefer wash-rind cheeses over their fresh counterparts. I enjoy the Vietnamese fish sauce and the more 'advanced' shrimp paste. BUT, oooooooh boy, the ice cream the Papa Bear had was beyond me. It S-T-U-N-K. It stunk so badly that all five of us who were there moved away from the Papa Bear - we left him in one corner of the store, while we congregated on the other side...

Can you guess what flavor it was?

Here is a hint:

Check back later tonight to find out what flavor it was and more description on Polly Ann's!

yeah, if it's not durian i'd have to guess gorgonzola.

I would have guessed gorganzola, but durian is an excellent guess.
