Ice cream can be flavored with anything, so it is impossible to say how many flavors have existed throughout history. Popular flavors include chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, while more exotic flavors include crab, garlic and bacon.
Some ice cream brands are known for offering new and interesting flavor combinations. For instance, Ben & Jerry's has dozens of notable flavors, including Cinnamon Buns, Crème Brûlée and Lemonade Sorbet. Some flavors are named for celebrities or pop culture references, including Willie Nelson's Country Peach Cobbler™, which tastes like it sounds; or Taste the (Jeremy) Lin-Sanity, which is flavored with lychee fruit and fortune cookies.
