Baby Gaga

4 Apr

The Icecreamist in London at first glance is a fresh take on the ice cream parlor. Make that an extremely fresh taste. With the tagline “lick your addiction,” The Icecreamist leads the way to get your chilled fix. “They tried to make me go to rehab and I said yes,yes,yes,” is another one of their taglines. The website warns that some motifs may be inappropriate for young children. In another words, it is an adult ice cream store.

Some of their “treatments” include alcoholic ice cream beverages. However, many are more controversial than that. One of their famous mixes is the Sex Bomb, and ice cream containing natural stimulants such as Ginko Bilabo, Arginine, and Guarana. It also contains a shot of the very high proof Absinthe, but even more shocking, it contains a bit of Viagra!

The 18+ London shop is obviously stirring up a lot of controversy, but we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet. The Icreamist really landed on the map with the introduction of the Baby Gaga. The ice cream attracted international attention at its premier, and it goes for a whopping £14 ($22.50 US dollar) per scoop.

So what is the Baby Gaga? It is ice cream made from human breast milk!

According to the social blog Where the Girls Go, The Icecreamist founder Matt O’Conner says that the lactating women must undergo the same testing procedures used at hospitals when screening blood donors.

With customers being curious and intrigued and eager to get their hands on the unusual, the ice cream did not take much time to sell out. Lactating women were also waiting in line to sell their milk to The Icecreamist.

Of the smaller controversies, a law suit is taking place with the real Lady Gaga over the name.

More concerned about a restaurant food containing human bodily fluids? As it turns out, so are a lot of people.

While the flavor is not officially banned as of yet, samples of the ice cream have been taken away for testing.

London is known for its oddities, but this is definitely a few steps too far! At the same time, one cannot help but be intrigued about such an establishment (and they do have some more typical flavors that seem fun while remaining edible).

    This is pretty crazy. I’m not sure which part I’m confused and concerned most about – the viagra and sex named ice cream or the breast milk? Regardless, I don’t think I would ever try the ice cream but I am definitely interested in the whole ice cream ordeal. It’s kind of like seeing a car accident … you don’t need or want to look but you can’t help but stare anyway.

    By far, this is the most interesting PR Connection I have come across. These types of businesses make me wonder if I’d be successful in setting up my own shop. In my opinion, if breast milk ice cream can be sold, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign can be sold. Seriously, this is awesome. But, I don’t think the lawsuit is necessary (in regards to the baby gaga name).
