The Future Is Now: Color-Changing Ice Cream

July 31, 2014


Spanish physicist and chef Manuel Linares has developed Xamaleón (a take on 'camaleón' -- Spanish for chameleon), an ice cream that changes color as you lick it. The ice cream begins a sort of periwinkle blue, then fades to purple and eventually pink as you eat it. What causes the change? Manuel isn't saying, which leads at least one blogger to believe it's either 1) magic or 2) something that will give you ten kinds of cancer. originally starts as a periwinkle blue frozen treat until it's spritzed with Linares' "love elixir," a super secret mixture he concocted himself. This mixture reacts to changes in temperature and saliva, causing the tutti-frutti-flavored ice cream to turn into purple, then into pink as you lick.

As unusual as it sounds, this is just the beginning of Linares' foray into the color-changing ice cream business: he also plans to whip up ice cream that turns from white to pink, and another one that glows under ultraviolet light. You can only get a scoop of this chameleon ice cream from one the creator's shops in Spain right now, but he's looking to export it to other countries

Yeah, but how does it taste? Because I don't generally buy ice cream based on its color changing properties, I buy it because it tastes good and make me fat while I forget about all the day's problems. Color changing ice cream that tastes like shit is worthless. Color changing ice cream that tastes like you've got your mouth wrapped around a witch's nipple -- now that -- that's a goldmine. I'll have a single scoop with a cherry on top (for added realism).

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who is so evil he only buys low-fat ice cream when he knows friends are coming over.

    Why is it called Xameleon? Why not just cameleon? Why they gotta be speciesist?

    Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

    He probably have some substance that changes color depending on the pH and as the ice cream melts it liberates something to lower the pH.

    Probably a something like purple cabbage extract.
