July is many things, among them, hot and patriotic. It's also National Ice Cream Month, and it has been since 1984, when then-President Ronald Reagan declared it so.

Although it'd be easy for me to declare my favorite flavor — that'd be salted caramel ice cream, in case any of you want to send a pint my way! — it's way more fun for me to detail some of the crazy third-wave ice cream flavors that I've tried in recent memory: salted licorice, blue cheese, and bourbon and cornflake. (Cicada's not on the list. Yet.) In honor of all things cold and creamy, I want to know: what's the most exotic ice cream flavor you've ever tried?
