How about if I told you it was made of jellyfish?
Created by the food invention(?) company Lick Me I’m Delicious, this ice cream is a monster of nature, using a synthesized bioluminescent jellyfish protein to cast a green glow.
“It’s glow in the dark jellyfish ice cream using calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated, or to put it a non sciencey way, it glows when you lick it.”
Oh, but this stuff’s expensive. One scoop will run you about £140, or $225. I have no idea what it actually tastes like (jellyfish?), but Charlie Francis says on the company’s blog that it’s perfectly safe. Well, mostly harmless, anyway.
“…I tried some and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere,” he says, which I think is good news.
If glow-in-the-dark jellyfish ice cream isn’t your thing, here’s a video of Charlie, “the Edible Inventor” himself, performing some ice cream pottery on a gramophone. Because why not.
Now excuse me while I place this in my Things That Should Not Glow In The Dark file, right next to those bioluminescent cockroaches.
