Baby Gaga Breast Milke Ice Cream!
It doesn't matter what the weather is like, people enjoy ice cream. With too many flavors to count, how do you know which kind to choose or where to go if you're looking for a sweet, cold treat? I enjoy places like Braum's and DQ when I'm craving ice cream, but I don't know that I'd visit the store in question in relation to this story.
In London, a specialist ice cream parlor is serving breast milk ice cream.
Yes, you read that correctly.
The owner states:
People should think of it as an organic, free-range treat.
It gets better.
The breast milk concoction, called the "Baby Gaga," will be available from Friday at the Icecreamists restaurant in London's Covent Garden. Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor was confident his take on the "miracle of motherhood" and priced at a hefty 14 pounds ($23) a serving will go down a treat with the paying public.
Because of the novelty of this item, and though I wouldn't try it myself, I question how many people will actually flock to this store to try it out. Chance are they'll be swamped with business.
15 women donated their breast milk for the promotion after an advertisement was placed seeking the milk.
The Baby Gaga recipe blends breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then churned into ice cream. [It] was just one of a dozen radical new flavors at the shop.
Though it's not something I would run out to try, I have to give kudos to the shop owner. He's taken an idea, worked it into a product, and he's generating a lot of buzz which will ultimately lead to a lot of business.
Nevertheless, I still think it's weird.
