    Keeping you abreast of the news... I love London.



    Organic, free-range and totally natural, how much for some Baby Gaga ice-cream in a glass? £14. That's about $US23. And it all sold out today.

    Ben & Jerry's have some catching up to do.

    you'd think that would be illegal.

    STDs can be spread via breastmilk, doesn't sound like a good idea at all to sell something like that.

    To be fair, human breast milk has a flavor vaguely reminiscent of sweet coconut milk...Probably makes freakin awesome ice cream.

    Call me old fashioned but I prefer the ice cream on the boobs...

    That gives a whole new meaning to "Milk Moustache"...


    There's gotta be a decent joke in there somewhere!?

    :eek: *shrug*

    It's served in a martini glass and liquid nitrogen is poured into the glass with a syringe...


    Good point. But HIV, yes. However, it's all apparently covered:

    And all breast milk donors are screened by the same checks that are done for blood donors for the UK National Health Service, apparently.


    Doubt it, just because of the way it's served. But the concept might be picked up elsewhere...


    A food critic reviewed it today:

    'Tastes fantastic. Light and creamy with just enough of a vanilla tinge... tastes better than almost any I've had before'

    This ice-cream place, just doors away from the largest Apple store in the world, also in Covent Garden, is fairly trendy. Check out their pics on Facebook.

    Sounds a unique experience. Must admit to being tempted...

    ...just for the mammaries.

    I really want to try it, but I'm in America.
    I bet it tastes really good, considering that human breast milk is made for humans and not cows.

    Unless it's mine or my momma's, I'm going to have to go with a NO.

    As opposed to consuming the bodily fluids of a multitude of different cows, all shoved into extremely close quarters in hot conditions...

    Not saying I would eat this ice cream, but when you put it that way, you have to look at both sides...

    Better a stranger from your own species than a stranger from another?

    Eh, my mind see consumables on a different level...kinda like how I wouldn't eat a person :D . I do see your point though.

    Eating a person isn't the same thing as consuming their breast milk. The milk is replenishable, and given willingly.
    I don't think that we could say the same thing regarding cannibalism.

    This is fascinating. When you really think about it, consuming this makes more sense than consuming ice cream made from cow's milk. It is no more offensive or "gross."

    I will try this when I get to London.

    If they ever serve it in the United States, I'm going to try it.

    I just thought about how weird it would be to go and ask someone for breast milk ice cream. ;)
    It would definitely need to be bought at a store.
    But maybe you should open up a stand? Never too early to start saving for college. :D
