Steve Aldrich runs Aldrichs Beef And Ice Cream Parlor and for the last 23 years, hes been offering special flavors on April Fools Day that range from the ridiculous to the inedible.
Last year, he served beet flavor and in years past hes scooped up chocolate spaghetti, sauerkraut and chicken wings ice cream as well.
Aldrich began the tasteless tradition after a gravy salesman friend dared him to make gravy ice cream. Aldrich's response: ``You bring the gravy and Ill make the ice cream.
This year, Aldrich anticipates the locals will be popping by to try his popcorn ice cream. In his words, Popcorn and ice cream are two of my favorite foods, why not eat them together?
Luckily, customers dont seem to mind being the butt of Aldrichs joke. As he puts it, They dont spit it out. The majority of people finish the whole thing.
Some people even buy cartons of it so, in Aldrichs words they can continue the joke at the dinner table.
