The couple of times I've had deep fried ice cream they used cornflakes as the basis of the crust. Not that weird, but not something you see every day.
Come to think of it, anything deep fried that's really crispy normally uses breakfast cereal as a base. Cornflakes, Captain crunch. Interesting.
Check out how cornflakes were discovered. Even weirder than putting them as a topping on ice cream! ;)
