Irish company turns heads with chicken nugget ice cream

An Irish ice cream company decided to push the boundaries of ice cream flavors by combining two favorite foods into one very questionable item.

Dundalk-based XXI Ice recently revealed its chicken nugget ice cream on its Facebook page. Yes, you read that right.

The company's video shows three McDonald's chicken nuggets placed on a cold slab. Cream is then poured on top of the nuggets before they're sliced into smaller pieces. After a minute or so, the mixture is spread across the slab and divided into rectangular slices, which are later rolled. The dessert is finally topped with three more nuggets.

"I suppose we create custom ice creams," a spokesperson for the company told Fox News. "We turn anything we can mash into ice cream, from chocolate to McNuggets. Nothing is too far! We are trying to bring ice cream rolls to Ireland in what is a new and exciting take on your standard ice cream."

XXI Ice has previously experimented with other unusual products, including cheese-and-onion-flavored potato chips, prosecco and Krispy Kreme donuts.
