Man creates world's first glow-in-the-dark ice cream (but it will cost you £140 a scoop)
- By AOL Travel, Nov 2, 2013
An entrepreneur from Bristol has created the world's first glow-in-the-dark ice cream using synthesised jellyfish luminescence and it will cost you a cool £140 for a scoop if you fancy a lick of the icy treat on your next trip to the seaside.
Charlie Harry Francis invented the frozen glow ball that works by reacting with your tongue at neutral PH, lighting up when you lick it and giving off a green glow.
Speaking to AOL Travel, Charlie said: "It's probably the most expensive ice cream I've ever made; jellyfish luminescence is four times pricier than gold so each scoop costs me around £140."
His experimental ice cream company Lick Me I'm Delicious can make any flavour ice cream, with favourites including beer, cheddar cheese and roast beef.
It's not the only extravagant ice cream around either, as this summer a group of British tourists were charged a whopping £54 for four cones of gelato in Rome - and that was just vanilla!
