It’s a weird
combination but a little bit of jellyfish in your ice-cream and Voila!
you have glow-in-the dark ice cream. Founded by Charlie Francis of Lick
Me Delicious ice cream in the UK, he has harnessed the fluorescent
properties of the jellyfish to develop the luminescent snack. He came up
with the idea after reading a research paper on jellyfish and convinced
scientists in China to chemically recreate the glowing protein. The ice
cream reacts with the eater’s tongue – raising the pH level in the
protein. Its luminescence only increases with every lick! A whole new
experience for those with night vision too.
And as you’d expect, the jellyfish proteins don’t come cheap — £200 ($321) gets you about 2g of the stuff making a single scoop costs about $225!
