A London ice cream parlour in Covent Garden is selling breast milk ice cream to customers willing to pay £14 a scoop.
The ice cream is served in a tall cocktail glass with a rusk at the side, and dry ice (Liquid nitrogen) bellowing out of the top. The dish has been named Baby Gaga and is served by an outlandish, costumed waitress.
Women willing to donate their breast milk to the shop have been found and are paid £15 for every 10 ounces they hand over to the chefs. The chefs then blend vanilla and lemon and churn the milk into ice cream. Apparently, the women are screened for health problems and have a blood test similar to that given to blood donors.
The ice cream can be served with whisky or a cocktail of your choice. Some are saying it's a good way to get people to realise how tasty and nutritional breast milk is and it will encourage mothers to feed their babies. Others are condemning the ice cream as a bad thing.
Westminster Council seized samples of the ice cream for checks to be carried out but the owners are convinced it is safe and healthy. It sold out within hours of going on sale. Lady GaGa has also threatened legal action over the name of the dessert, claiming that they are preying on her name and image.
