Mint chocolate chirp?

Not quite.

Torimi Cafe in Japan, known for serving up tea and homemade ice cream while allowing customers to sit among birds, hatched up a new gimmick: pet bird-flavored ice cream.

The cafe debuted its Java Sparrow, Parakeet, and Cockatiel flavors at a department store's small bird expo last week, according to Rocket News 24.

Don't worry -- the desserts just imitate a bird's flavor. No fowl play.

But what can tasters expect?

We're not sure. The business' flavor descriptions leave us even more befuddled than we were when we first heard of bird-flavored ice cream.

Cockatiel, for example, contains honey-apple, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds, and tastes as if "you're sleeping with your mouth open and your cockatiel runs over your face and gets its leg in your mouth."

Thanks for that imagery, Torimi Cafe.

While most companies are steering clear of bird-flavored anything, weird ice cream variations pop up all the time. In Brazil, one beer brand introduced beer-flavored ice cream, asking customers, "Shall we go to the bar to have an ice cream?"

We've also seen the likes of cheddar cheese ice cream, prosciutto ice cream, and even pizza ice cream.
