I've been meaning to post this for about 2 weeks now. Falmouth, MA: we're strolling the street, looking for anyplace with sugar-free ice cream for my main squeeze; we come to "The Chocolate Emporium". At the corner we approach, a large sign declares, "Our lobster ice cream contains chunks of real lobster". I think a bit about trying some; that is, I think "No way in hell".

Would you?

Apart from the scatological or otherwise obscene, have you come across anything comparably...uh... tempting... recently?

No, thank God! Unless you count my (imaginative) concoctions, such as spaghetti a la mode with chocolate sauce or baked apples vinaigrette marinara sauce.

Was it in flavors other than vanilla lobster? I mean, like mint chocolate chip lobster or pistachio lobster or bubblegum lobster? This inquiring mind doesn't need to know, but others might.

I think it was obvious that it just came in plain "lobster".
I've found myself wondering whether, if someone actually asks for some, they admit that it's a joke; but my nickel bet is that they really make it.

When a fresh-red Maine lobster is steamed....

some of that fresh, sumptuous, unctiousness, flavor is released....

to be captured, and converted into DownEast icecream...is the perfection of any lobster's creation.

I have for a ling time liked the idea of savoury milkshakes - tomato and basil ... mushroom and garlic ... lobster bisque ... (i.e. chilled soup).
So why not freeze it?

Colder waters produce better tasting Atlantic lobsters, so lobsters imbedded in ice cream may make some sense, at least at some level.

Lobster "juice" is used to flavour lots of foods. A company in NB.ca cooks local shrimp in it. Darn tasty! I saw it being made in a plant in NF.ca. After processing and removal of the "stuff you ain't supposed to eat", the rest, including the "juice" collected during processing, is ground up into a pulp and cooked again. Buddy said, "Try some." and scooped some up in his hand. I did same. Darn tasty!

Probably not a sweet ice cream; I can imagine a frozen lobster concoction (possibly with a hint of sherry flavor) could be quite tasty. But savoury, not sweet.

Why not, garlic ice cream also works. If you are ever in NY's Chinatown, wander into the Chinatown Ice cream factory and start sampling.

Is there also an oyster ice cream? Scallops? Clam? Squid? Octopodi?   Sea squirt?

I reckon if you were to make a clam chowder, liquidise in a blender, add some extra cream, and then freeze it, you would have a tasty clam ice cream. (I think I'm gonna try it some time soon.)

I've had salmon and dill ice cream and blue cheese ice cream over here in the UK, and they were both excellent....savoury, not sweet. So I expect the lobster one would be pretty good.

I agree with MMario. Frozen lobster Newburgh.

I'd give it a try, but my basic philosophy is to not screw up a good thing. I prefer my lobster boiled with only an addition of butter. In a pinch, the butter could be optional.

One of (First Lady) Dolly Madison's favorite treats is said to be Oyster Ice Cream. Because of this connection, this delicacy was served at a Regency Ball at Dumbarton House in DC which my husband and I attended a few years back -- as I recall it tasted like mediocre onion dip, but very cold.

I'll stick with Vichysoisse, thanks.

Was this ice cream treat before or after the British burned the Executive Mansion? If after I can understand why.

during a 'bloom' of jellyfish which stopped all other fishing, one coastal town - I think somewhere in asia, began to make jellyfish ice cream - having the processing plant there already, and shipped out tons of the stuff as a novelty.

Apparently it was well received by those willing to try it, and it did not require many additives due to the consistency of mashed and frozen jellyfish.

I live in Falmouth - and have tried Ben & Bills' Lobster Ice Cream. There is nothing wrong with it, ie. it tastes of sweet cream ice cream with lobster in it. Not as good a Maple Walnut!
