It also packs quite a crunch! Instead of infusing the flavours of fries, squeaky cheese curds and brown sauce into an ice cream like contestants might do on Iron Chef, business owner Giapo Grazioli created a sweet-and-savoury poutine dish wherein ice cream is but one ingredient.

McDonald's is offering a free vanilla soft-serve ice cream cone to customers through the restaurant chain's app at its Miami Valley restaurants on Sunday, July 16 - and one customer nationwide will win free ice cream for life, McDonald's officials say.

Loving how it sounds? But it's only for a limited time.

"Our new flavor was inspired by the popular snack mixes that combine sweet and salty foods", said Wayne Hugo, vice president of sales and marketing for Blue Bell.

This week, however, the Texas-based ice cream maker is unveiling a new taste treat.

Soon, Ice Scraperz wants to start a Taco Tuesday - where rolled ice cream will be served in a cone shaped like a taco shell. It was just a few weeks ago that Blue Bell released three new flavors.

The new flavor is Sweet n' Salty Crunch and will feature vanilla ice cream with chocolate-covered pretzel bites, chopped roasted almonds, and milk chocolate chunks. Last year's flavor, and fan favorite, Cookie Two Step recently returned to stores in June. See their reactions below!
