Want to join me for some ice cream? We'll hop a jet and fly across the pond to London, to grab the newest flavor from an ice cream shop called The Icecreamists. There's one catch. It's made from breast milk. And vanilla pods and lemon zest. But mostly breast milk.
“Some people are turned off by the idea,” Matt O'Connor, founder of The Icecreamists, told AOL News. “But, really, it raises the philosophical question: Is it better if we use milk from cows injected with hormones who are artificially induced with pregnancy every few months, or human milk?”
It's called Baby Gaga, and O'Connor says that though many diseases can be transmitted through breast milk, his ice cream's perfectly safe because it's pasteurized, and screened like donated blood.
It was sold for the first time this past Friday, but the Icecreamists' supply has been seized for testing.
“As far as we are aware there is no law prohibiting a business from selling breast milk ice cream,” O'Connor said in a statement. But they're cooperating anyway. Good on 'em.
