An ice cream maker in Quito named María del Carmen Pilapaña specializes in ice cream flavored with guinea pig meat. (Tastes like chicken!)

The 78-year-old started her business after taking a class for entrepreneurs, where she was told that innovation is key. So she innovated.

If guinea pig isn’t your flavor, Pilapaña also makes beetle and mushroom ice cream.
