Japan came up with the lobster ice cream, the grasshopper ice cream, the cream stew popsicle, and various other strange ice cream flavors. Here’s the newest addition to the weird ice cream products of Japan, the parrot scented ice cream by Bird Café.

The ice cream has become so popular that Bird Café worked with a wagashi company called Tenkoudou to make dorayaki filled with parrot scented ice cream. Dorayaki is a type of delicious Japanese sweets that consists of two pancake-like buns and usually azuki paste.

For those of you who have smelt a budgerigar, a cockatiel, a finch, or a galah, do they really smell good? Japanese people say the budgerigars smell like a futon that was dried by the sun, which I suppose smells close to laundry? And who doesn’t like the smell of laundry!? But it’s probably not a suitable aroma for your ice cream…
