    McDonald’s Thailand debuts bizarre Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream dessert

    McDonald’s Thailand debuts bizarre Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream dessert-564da960-0ffd-468a-b6b8-edb1bcbd2ede-jpeg

    McDonald's Thailand dropped a new food item, and it sounds bizarre for a dessert. The fast-food chain launched the Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream, and people hearing this name can't help but wonder if it is really a dessert or a new burger flavor.

    As per ChewBoom, the Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream being sold at McDonald's Thailand outlets is really a sweet dessert. In fact, it features the restaurant's signature vanilla soft serve, and the flavor is achieved with the addition of shredded pork floss and chili paste sauce.


    The taste and texture are said to be a unique combination of rich, spicy, and meaty ice cream experience. The pork floss is a dried bit of pork but it is very light and one can taste the hint of saltiness with a bite.


    The Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream at McDonald's Thailand is available until April 5. It should be noted that some of the stores in the country may not have this food item so customers must check the location first to see if the product is available.


    In any case, this unique "meaty" ice cream flavor may not be appealing to McDonald's customers in other countries such as in the U.S. but this is surely alright with the locals since this was created according to their palate. It is also topped with some of the favorite local flavors so this can be enjoyed by the Thais.


    Finally, as mentioned on Pop Culture, this is not the first time that a regional McDonald's branch has added chili to its soft-serve ice cream. In fact, around this time last year, the burger joint introduced the "Yķupō Lāzi" Sundae in China and it was sold at participating stores there.


    The ice cream sundae also features vanilla ice cream and it was drizzled with chili oil and topped with bits of peppers, garlic, onion, and other seasonings. But then again, the unusual dessert was only sold for a day at that time. It was still purchased by the locals so the Chili Paste Pork Ice Cream at McDonald's Thailand is also expected to fare well in the stores.

    I remember being in Thailand when I first arrived and after a few days I went into seveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeern and was eyeing the butties when I stumbled across the pork floss.

    "Moo" the fella assured me.



    Never. Ever. Again.

    I love pork floss. Will eat it in a sandwich.

    There are heaps of Thai deserts I never thought I could get my head around but now love them, like saku sai moo. Yum.

    Don’t know about this Chili paste ice cream, though. Doesn’t sound very good.

    Yeah, but you're a yank. Sugar on bacon is acceptable to you.

    The Asian predilection for sugar with everything doesn't appeal to most of the rest of the world.

    Can’t say I’ve come across a chili-maple-bacon doughnut but it wouldn’t be my doughnut choice!

    I reckon it would be worth a go anyway. Pork floss is quite nice, and so is ice cream.

    I would try it! I like pork floss and I like ice cream. Eating them together wouldn't be a big deal.

    I've tasted chili ice cream in Legaspi, Albay here in PH. It was at the park for viewing Mayon Volcano. There are different chili levels - from 1 (lowest) to 5. I think I tasted strawberry flavor, level 1. There are diff flavors & levels to choose from. The combination of chili & cool ice cream was a bit weird (but generally OK).

    There is an ice cream shop in Chiang Mai which makes chili mango ice cream. It is so nice.
