yes, it tastes, exactly as you might think – like wasabi and ginger in cream. Funky, yet disgusting. But not as bad as Black Licorice ice cream, which, in the pans at Cold Stone, looks exactly like, well, something black and runny that would make you call your GI doc at 3 am, frantic that your innards had turned into decomposed earthworm soup. Or something grosser. Thanks Cold Stone, for a lasting visual.
