Chili sauce drizzled over vanilla ice cream has been “honored” as the craziest summer snack by netizens in China.
As crazy as it sounds, a lot of people were brave enough, or hot enough, to give this cold summer snack a try. Sounds gross, right? Actually, many people gave it the thumbs up.
One netizens said: “The chili oil quickly froze once it hit the cold ice cream, and it was no longer greasy. The creaminess of the icecream cancelled out the spice of the chili sauce.”
Once the chili ice cream recipe went viral on Chinese social media, a senior dietitian from Fujian People’s Hospital said that the recipe is bad for your health because ice cream and sweet chili sauce are high in sugar, and both irritate the stomach.
