Thought JoeDoe’s bacon-infused ice-cream sandwich was odd? Today’s Trend Central newsletter points us to lobster ice cream. We’ll let the purveyor, Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium of (where else?) Massachusetts, sell you on this:

Lobster Ice Cream is a butter-flavored ice cream. We buy cooked lobster meat from a local lobster pound, pick the meat, butter it, and fold it into the ice cream. During peak season, hundreds of people daily sample this ice cream and it is one of our most popular items for shipping.

Hundreds sample it? Sure. But how many actually order it? In other lobster news: Fridays through Sundays, Macelleria is offering a one-and-one-quarter-pound lobster, corn on the cob, and Italian coleslaw for $22.
