Frankincense Icecream!

Many people love lighting frankincense in order to fill the room with a sweet fragrance but did you know that you can also eat frankincense?!  Apparently you can buy the edible type of frankincense (clearer than your usual frankincense) at Muttrah Souq as well as several other locations.  Ubhar Restaurant in Bareeq Al Shatti Mall has frankincense icecream on its dessert menu for 1.5 rials.  We tried it out on our most recent visit and I must say that it sure does have a unique taste! It seems a bit “gritty” at first but once you get over the fact that you’re eating incense, it is actually quite good.  Have any of you tried eating frankincense before? If so, what did you think?
