Superstar singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran is known for many things; his infectious pop tracks, his storied friendship with Taylor Swift, and his eccentric collection of tattoos to name a few. Well, one gelato shop in Ireland is taking Ed up on one of his most injudicious pieces of body art — a tattoo of a classic Heinz 57 label — apparently an homage to Sheeran’s love of the condiment, by crafting a gelato flavor from the famous ketchup.
Gelati Enniscrone and Ballina gelato shop serves the bright red flavor with an added dash of ketchup on top, the result is described as a “frozen bloody mary.”
We’ve seen plenty of wacky ice cream flavors over the years, from Japanese fish balls to mouth numbing Carolina Reaper hot peppers, and on the scale of weirdness, this ketchup flavored gelato registers a bit low but as one Philadelphia reporter confessed, ” I could imagine this being refreshing in the summer, but that drizzle of ketchup..count me out!”
We can’t say we feel very different about this novelty flavor, especially in the dawn of the summer season, when ice cream is at its best and creameries are at their most creative.
