Second Scoop: Would you eat glow-in-the-dark jellyfish ice cream?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on November 10th, 2017

When the power goes out, your thoughts immediately turn to two things: Finding a flashlight and figuring out how to eat all the ice cream in your freezer before it melts. Now, an ice cream mad scientist in Britain has combined those two dilemmas by creating an ice cream that glows in the dark because it’s made with luminescent jellyfish proteins.

The ice cream, which doesn’t taste like jellyfish (we’re actually not sure what flavor it is), glows brighter when you lick it due to the reaction between the jellyfish protein and temperature and pH of your tongue.

The glowing treat’s creator, an award-winning food inventor named Charlie Francis, insists that it’s safe to eat. “I tried some,” said Francis, “and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere.” Because jellyfish protein is somewhat expensive, a single scoop of Francis’ frosty invention sells for about $225.

Francis is the co-founder of the U.K. ice cream shop “Lick Me I’m Delicious,” which is known for its assortment of funky ice cream flavors. Also on the menu is roast beef ice cream, horseradish and Yorkshire pudding ice cream, lamb and mint ice cream, and cheddar cheese ice cream. Up next for the Lick Me team is an invisible ice cream (they’re looking for a few magicians who can help make that happen) and the hottest ice cream in the world.

Assuming you don’t mind spending $225 for a scoop of the bright jellyfish ice cream, the next natural question is, would you try it?
