Corn Ice Cream at La Michoacana

Corn! Corn on the cob, creamed corn, cornbread, corn nuggets… Corn ice cream?

It turns out La Michoacana, a frozen treat darling of the Memphis food scene, not only serves an impressive array of paletas (Mexican popsicles), they also serve homemade ice cream, made fresh every day, in flavors like German (German chocolate, without the chocolate) and corn.

We read about the corn ice cream on a friend’s Facebook page. (How else does one learn anything these days?) It certainly is a dark horse flavor in a race where chocolate and strawberry and caramel-coconut reign supreme. And we know some of you may turn your noses up at it. But give it a try, maybe even just a sample at the counter, and we’re pretty sure you won’t be sorry.

Partly a testament to the quality of La Michoacana’s ice cream in general, the corn ice cream has a rich, sweet flavor of real cream, not unlike a golden vanilla, but with slight sweet corn overtones. The ice cream melts, not in drips, but in a creamy foam that coats the entire scoop. And for less than $3, you’ll have more than enough to share. Ignore the corn ice cream detractors and dive in.
