Viagra Ice Cream: Mérida, Venezuela

The old-fashioned ice cream social can take a distinctly adult turn, thanks to this offering at the famed Heladería Coromoto ice cream shop in Mérida. The shop isn’t famous for its legions of men lined up outside, though. Instead, it has laid claim to a multiyear streak in the Guinness World Records book for the most ice cream flavors: almost 900 at the most recent count (though only a paltry 70 or 80 are available on any given day). Besides Viagra, you might find the Coke and Diet Coke flavors, chile pepper, and even tuna.

How It Tastes: It may be hard to taste anything beyond the vivid aqua color, meant to evoke the little blue pill; the specific main ingredients are a secret, but are reportedly “natural” plant aphrodisiacs.
