OVERVIEW: LONG-TERM STICK AND BURBAN SEA CREAM
Guinea pig meat, commonly known in Ecuador as the savory dish of the Americas, in other countries, and in other countries grilled and served whole, per NPR.
But Maria del Carmen Pilapagna, who runs a small stable near the capital Quito, has come across a completely new preparation – and it's a hit, she tells The Associated Press.
"My family and my husband thought I was crazy," Pilapagna said. "They didn't think anyone liked these ice creams, but now they are our main product."
Pilapanya makes ice cream by preparing the guinea pig meat and making pate before mixing it with milk or cream, freezing it and serving it the way it does with other flavors.

"I was suspicious, but it was delicious," said one about the aroma of a guinea pig.
