Social media users are in a heated debate
over whether or not a woman’s “creative”
ice cream topping is disgusting or delicious.
The argument began when TikTok user
himynameissherrie shared a video of her dessert
combo, which she claimed has “changed her life”.
In the clip, the TikToker tells her followers
they’ve been eating vanilla ice cream “wrong”.
She then proceeds to add two crucial
ingredients to her bowl: a sprinkle of sea salt
and, crucially, a drizzle of olive oil.
“Before you tell me I lost you at olive oil, just
trust me on this one,” she says in the video.
The combination, which can be found in
online recipes and at many high-end restaurants
around the country, is nothing new.
However, most TikTok users wrote that they’d
never heard of the idea. Furthermore, several wrote
that they were not particularly inclined to try it.
“That looks rancid. I’d rather
not,” one commenter wrote.
“Are we garnishing ice cream or
frying chicken?” another asked.
“Who was the first person to try this?
Like who just decides to soak their ice
cream in olive oil,” another added.
Others were far more praiseworthy though. Some
users expressed that they had tried the dessert
before, and like himynameissherrie, they were fans.
“I’m a pastry chef and I have to agree!
TRE MAGNIFICENT,” one user wrote.
“All the nice French restaurants in nyc have this
with chocolate ice cream!! IT SLAPS,” another added
