HL option 2: ‘Is It April Fool’s Already?’ Brand Launches Ranch-Flavoured Ice Cream, Netizens Divided. The bizarre food combinations just won’t stop. Almost every day, we come across a new video of people cooking food in weird and unexpected ways. Recently, a video showing a soda drink with cheese grabbed eyeballs online. Before that, it was a ‘Maggi Curd Pizza‘ that went viral for the wrong reasons. Don’t even get us started on pani puri – people nowadays are adding everything from fizzy drinks to ice cream and calling it pani puri.

Recently, an American ice cream chain, Van Leeuwen, launched a new flavour: Ranch Ice cream. Yes, you read that right: It’s an ice cream flavoured with a savoury salad dressing! Ranch dressing is usually made using buttermilk, sour cream, garlic, onion and herbs – very far from your typical ice cream ingredients. It is also popular as a dip or sandwich spread. The limited edition desert was released to celebrate National Ranch Day on 10th March. It is a product of a collaboration between the ice cream chain and the Hidden Valley Ranch company. Have a look at the brand’s Instagram post below:
