Horse flavoured ice cream?

Japanese ice-cream lovers have swapped traditional flavours such as raspberry ripple for something a little more exotic - horse-flesh.
As Tokyo swelters in soaring temperatures, people are being invited to cool off by choosing from a variety of unusual flavours.
Garlic, potato and lettuce, and cactus and seaweed along with raw horse-flesh are now available in Japan's shops.
Adventurous ice cream lovers not tempted by those flavours could try soybean and kelp or strawberry and spinach.
The new flavours are being promoted by the Japan Ice-Cream Association which has set up a summer trade fair.
It hopes to boost the popularity of ice cream during the current heatwave as, although the Japanese spent more than Ā£1.5bn on ice-cream and sorbets last year, the country ranks only 19th in world consumption.
