The Glow In The Dark Jellyfish Ice Cream

Jeff Glennon | March 24th, 2019

Next time you are decided which scoop is best suited for you, arguing about if you prefer vanilla or strawberry – why not give glow in the dark jellyfish ice cream a go? This latest type of ice cream combines synthesized jellyfish proteins, that allow it to glow in the dark when licked.

The ice cream works by using the luminescence properties of jellyfish proteins so that it when your tongue touches it, the reaction occurs. The company behind the project is called Lick Me I’m Delicious, created by Charlie Harry Francis and states that the product came about largely due to a Chinese scientist who was able to figure out how to synthesize the protein that we find in jellyfish.

What happens is that the synthesized jellyfish proteins actually glow in the dark when coming into contact with calcium – so basically it activates when it is agitated. This means whenever you lick this jellyfish ice cream it starts to glow in the dark. The ice cream gives off a neon green glow when someone’s tongue licks it.

It will, of course, set you back a little bit though, coming in at over $225 per scoop! Apparently, it is entirely safe to eat, and the company is bringing a whole range of strange flavors to life such as Roast Beef ice cream or cheese flavor. They were even behind a horseradish flavor before, in fact, Lick Me I’m Delicious are no strangers to doing new things with ice cream.

In 2013, they also created ice cream by using a fire extinguisher and a gramophone machine. A video which has many millions of views on youtube. Often the company will create ice cream using a portable liquid nitrogen machine, this will instantly freeze ice cream due to its vaporizing at extremely low temperatures. And of course, people like the smoke effects that happen when using this type of machine.

So it seems that even an age-old and traditional product such as ice cream will always be in for innovations. No matter what happens though, we are sure to always find our traditional trusty vanilla flavor when needed.
