$225 A Scoop Glow-In-The-Dark Ice Cream

November 5, 2013


This is the $225 a scoop glow-in-the-dark ice cream created by Charlie Francis of Lick Me I'm Delicious ice cream. It glows in the dark because it contains a lab-made version of the same protein jellyfish use to glow. Mmmm, jellyfish ice cream. "Call me when there's a starfish sno-cone that can regenerate itself." GOOD IDEA.

The ice cream reacts with the eater's tongue - raising the pH level in the protein and making it glow.

[Charlie] says because the ice cream lights up when it reacts with the heat of the mouth it means the more you lick, the brighter it becomes.

Awesome, the only real problem is that it's $225 a scoop, and I never order less than two scoops. That's a $450 ice cream. $451.50 if they charge an $1.50 for a sprinkle-dipped cone WHICH I MUST HAVE. A bowl? Are you out of your mind? I can't eat paper. Not to ruin anything for you, but one time I sat bare-assed on the cold stone at Cold Stone Creamery and when I stood up it ripped pieces of skin off both my buttcheeks. But like I said, not to ruin anything for you.

Thanks to carrie and Skatesin, who make glow-in-the-dark ice cream the old fashioned way: marinating a highlighter in a pint of Ben & Jerry's then eating that shit under a blacklight.
