We all love ice cream, or is that just for those of us from Wisconsin? There is a new kind of ice cream that’s becoming a popular treat in Ecuador, and it will surprise you once you find out what it is.
“I was suspicious, but it was tasty,” one skeptical customer shared regarding the treat.
The treat they are referring to is ice cream, guinea pig ice cream. Do you think you’d want to try that kind of sweet treat? Can’t say I’m up for it.
These rodents are traditionally a hot dish in some Latin American countries including Columbia, Peru, and Bolivia. Ecuadorians cook guinea pigs with salt and then serve them with potatoes and peanut sauce.
A different vendor is trying something new and serving the guinea pig as a cold dessert. Some like ice cream made from “cuy,” which is another name for the animal in that part of the world.
