Most Expensive Scoop of Ice Cream Glows Like a Jellyfish Because It’s Made With Jellyfish

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Is it just us or is it slightly weird that the inventor of an ice cream that seems to come straight from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory would be named Charlie and sport a hat much like the legendary fictional candy crafter?

Charlie Francis, the owner of Bristol’s ‘Lick Me I’m Delicious’, has created an ice cream that glows using the parts of a jellyfish that produce its bioluminescence. Easily the most expensive ice cream ever created at around $225 a scoop, the ice cream glows when you lick it.

Currently the proteins needed to produce the glow are being created in a lab and not taken from the jellyfish themselves which is why you’ve got to be willing to skip a car payment for a scoop of the stuff.

First absinthe-flavored popsicles and now glowing, bioluminescent ice cream using jellyfish proteins. We’re not sure what’s next for ice cream but we sure like where it’s headed.
