Breast Milk Ice Cream

In London, an ice cream vendor began selling one novelty ice cream Friday, naming the flavor "Baby Gaga" after the deliberately peculiar pop princess. People who try it may notice some familiar flavors in the ice cream, including vanilla from Madagascar, a hint of lemon zest and the comforting taste of human breast milk.

Mothers who produce the milk are screened as closely as blood donors, and the flavor of their milk can vary considerably depending on a number of factors, such as diet. The proprietors say that human breast milk is thinner and sweeter than cow's milk and are treating it as a gourmet delicacy, which explains the much higher price (approximately $22 per serving).

As yet, there hasn't been a comment on the breast milk ice cream from Lady Gaga herself, the reigning queen of publicity photo-ops, who may be waiting for a chance to taste the creamy treat first. Although if her videos are to be believed, she doesn't have an objection to being licked. The unique ice cream is available now, presumably in various cup sizes.
