Spaghetti Ice Cream

Am I the only one that didn't know that ice cream shaped like spaghetti is like...a thing...in Germany? Yep, that's right. It's called spaghettieis (spaghetti ice) and it's not really noodles, but ice cream that has been pressed through a spaetzle press. To assemble, simply place the "noodles" over whipped cream, add strawberry sauce instead of tomato sauce and replace the cheese with white chocolate, coconut, or grated almonds and voila, you have spaghettieis. When I first saw it, I thought it was just another fondant-covered novelty dish, but I was wrong! It's actually well-known dessert in Germany and has been around since the 1960s!

oh yes I've heard about this and yes at first I thought it was some kind of crazy spaghetti flavour ice cream! So relieved to know that it's just about the shape! :P

Uh no, you're not the only one. I didn't know about this, either. Oh man, this is crazy fun looking. I bet it was a delight to eat, too.
