Ice cream typically comes in vanilla or chocolate flavour, and while both flavours are universally loved, sticking to the same old flavours might be boring. 

A local ice cream brand in Rawang, Zam Ice Cream has recently invented a new flavour that comes in green. We can tell you, it’s not matcha, chocolate mint or kiwi-flavoured ice cream, and not everyone can stomach the flavour. In their TikTok post recently, Zam Ice Cream shared the recipe to make a stink bean-flavoured ice cream, fondly known as petai among the locals.

Have we gone too far in experimenting with flavours, or there’s no harm in going through trials and errors to tickle the taste buds of the locals?

For this interesting flavour, Zam Ice Cream used 10 stink beans and other necessary ingredients to make the ice cream before freezing it for 5 hours.

While petai may be a little too smelly for some, it definitely has a lot of flavour if cooked with the right dishes. While the flavour is not available everywhere, petai ice cream is available at certain places in Klang Valley. 

But is Zam Ice Cream really making the flavour available to the public?

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Zam Ice Cream said that the flavour is not officially on the menu, but they are happy to prepare the menu if there are demands for it. The business mainly caters to big events such as weddings or birthday parties.

They are also not new players in town as Zam Ice Cream also told WORLD OF BUZZ that they have been in the industry for about 7 years now. 

Many Malaysians are shocked to see the flavour, and some of them have joked about inventing new ice cream flavours using other iconic local dishes.

“We have stink beans now, but we don’t have prawn sambal flavour yet. Do this next.”

“If I burp after eating this, I pity the person beside me.”

“Onion-flavoured ice cream after this.”

“Tempoyak (fermented durian) ice cream next.”

In the meantime, more netizens enjoyed “contributing” ideas for the next flavour that they think should be done, including Pekasam fish.

Petai lovers, would you give this flavour a try? What flavour do you want to see in the market next?
