A London ice cream parlor is titillating its customers with a new flavor made from human breast milk. The restaurant is called the Icecreamists and the new flavor, which is named “Baby Gaga,” goes on sale Friday and is made from a mix of cream made from 75 percent human breast milk and 25 percent cream from old Bossy herself. Also with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then freshly churned into ice cream.
Icecreamists’ founder, Matt O’Connor, 44 from Hampshire, is confident he’s got a scoop on his hands, even if the breast milk ice cream is priced at a cool £14.
“The taste varies enormously, based on how long a woman has been lactating and her diet in general. Its viscosity is more watery than cow’s milk and it’s sweeter,” he said.
Each serving of Baby Gaga sells for around $22 U.S., and O’Connor compares the experience — and the price — to that of gourmet cheese.
Dairies specializing in human breast milk are few and far between, so O’Connor is contracting with moms like Victoria Hiley, a 35-year-old from Leeds who works with women who have problems breast-feeding.
“If it’s good enough for our children it’s good enough for the rest of us,” said Matt.
“Some people will hear about it and go, yuck!”
“But actually it’s pure, organic, free-range and totally natural. I had a Baby Gaga just this morning and I feel great.”
