    Default Booby milk at an ice cream parlor near you

    At 15 for every 10 ounces, you could certainly say they're milking it for all it's worth.

    A central London ice-cream parlour has started selling ice-cream made with human breast milk. The Icecreamists in Covent Garden, London, have named their unusual delicacy Baby Gaga.

    The treat is made by mixing breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest. The milk has been donated by women who were paid 15 for every 10 ounces of their bodily fluid.

    The dessert is offered up in a martini glass to those daring enough to try it for 14. Liquid nitrogen is also poured into the glass using a syringe.

    Despite its unusual ingredient, the company said the "organic, free-range and totally natural" product sold out when launched today.

    "The response has been amazing. People at first say it's disgusting because it's a bodily fluid, but so is cow's milk," said owner Matt O'Connor. "People love it when they try it."

    The company paid women who donated their breast milk after health screening. The Food Standards Agency says there are no specific laws prohibiting businesses from selling human milk products, but they must comply with general food safety laws to ensure the product is safe for consumption.

    The Icecreamists say Baby Gaga will be on the menu as long as the supplies keep flowing.

    Harpy posted about this over on the thread about 'Human Cheese'

    I have very little to say about this other than

    1) Excess breastmilk would be better used looking after poorly babies
    2) Their slogan 'liberating the world one lick at a time' is rather like a red rag to the proverbial (vegan) bull when they make their money off of animal exploitation
    Quitting something because it's hard is wrong, and quitting something because it's wrong is hard. One takes cowardice, the other bravery.

    Whoops..sorry..didn't see this article in the other thread. If a mod wants to remove this thread I won't be offended. My fault.
    Never ceases to amaze me how people will try and exploit/profit from anything they can rather than being conscious about improving life on this rock...

    Other slogans for this "15 a pop food" spring to mind:


    • Turn yourself into a sucker


    • Feel like a t*t? Buy our 15 ice-cream and you will


    • For the complete booby connoisseur


    • You're never too young to 'Go Gaga'! etc


    Coming soon from another producer: unbelievably expensive imitation sheepskin coats with the slogan:

    "...and we'll fleece you again!"


    You saw it here first

    Don't worry Andy - perhaps some kind moderator will combine the two threads though.

    They actually sent a food critic along to review this stuff today

    Makes writing about computers seem quite a nice job by comparison!

    Personally I hope it's a big hit...kinda like I hope Sarah Palin runs for president. Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom to see some truth.
    Wonder how long before human pinkies become a delicacy. I hear it tastes like chicken and it'll fetch the donor $2000 a pinky. wonder how many folks we'd see walking around pinky-less...hahahahaha

    As nasty as it sounds, it still makes more sense than consuming milk from cows.

    It's dopey any way you want to look at it even in the best scenario b/c there's not enough human milk to make a difference in society other than what it was intended for...and the worst part is it's always about profit rather than using it for the good of the planet.. How about for babies that need breast milk but who's mothers can't supply it? course that never entered anyone's mind when it comes to the almighty dollar/shilling.

    Hi Sequoia and welcome to the forum.

    Whichever makes more sense for whatever reason, cannot see me buying either!

    Thanks. Same here. People are too strange.
