Yes they did. Thanks to food inventor Charlie Harry Francis at the Lick Me I’m Delicious ice cream company, this decidedly un-vegetarian confection can be yours for the low, low price of $225.22 plus the travel cost of a visit to the UK:
“It’s glow-in-the-dark jellyfish ice cream using calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated, or to put it in a nonscience-y way, it glows when you lick it.”
Francis worked with a scientist from China who figured out a way to synthesize the luminescence protein found in jellyfish. He used it to make the ice cream give off a neon green glow when your tongue makes contact with the icy substance.
A scoop of the glowing ice cream costs about £140, or $225.22. And regarding the question of whether it’s safe to eat, Francis writes, “Well, I tried some and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere, so we’ll go with a yes for now.”
Lick at your own risk, as they say.
