Snow King taiwan got the flavors you never thought you would savor…

If you ever want sesame oil chicken or pig knuckle in Ice Cream form, the snow king in taiwan is the place to go...

As long as I’ve been traveling I only got the the opportunity to visit taiwan recently. Let me tell you fellow foodies, if you want to try some good/bizarre/different food, this place is a goldmine.


First up on my list  was the Snow king ice cream shop , where I’ve probably had the most bizarre ice cream ever.




From the website –

Sesame oil chicken, beef, pig knuckle — not exactly the flavors to expect at an ice cream shop, let alone one that’s been in business since 1947.

Yet these are a few of the long-standing choices on the menu at Snow King (雪王), located near Zhongshan Hall (中山堂) in Ximending (西門町). The shop serves more than 70 flavors of fresh homemade ice cream (priced between NT$60 and NT$120 per scoop), which range from the classic to the bizarre.

Yeah you can get good old chocolate and vanilla everywhere, but check out their menu of just some of the different flavors that snow king has to offer.



For this trip I looked at the craziest stuff on the menu and got it. Below are the sesame oil chicken, pig knuckle, and the Taiwan Beer.

That is a piece of chicken above in the ice cream.


And yes, this is a little bit of Pork Knuckle in this picture above.

Basically, whatever the flavor says its going to be, thats EXACTLY what the ice cream tastes like, in some cases complete with texture and everything. The sesame oil chicken, after the ice cream you feel the texture of the oil . The Taiwan Beer taste just like Beer, and Im sure you could bring some to a NFL game and get some pretzels and have a dandy good time. Im not really sure how they do it but they figured out how to meld the alcohol in really well, with a lot of potency. If you eat enough of the alcohol ice creams, best believe you shouldn’t drive a tractor afterwards.

So this begs the question, was it delicious??? Well, a lot of the flavors i would only try once, like the savory ice creams. Its worth the try just to say you did. Again there is NO false advertising. It says pork knuckle, you gonna feel like you eating bacon.

If you want to be safe though, try the sweet ones 😉 You can’t go wrong with chocolate 😉 Now who is that handsome guy on that poster…
