Breast milk ice cream creates a stir


Yes, you read that correctly. Here's the scoop on the bizarre new flavor.

According to The Guardian, Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor named his breast milk, vanilla, lemon zest concoction Baby Gaga to make it sound fun.

No matter how much vanilla and lemon zest O'Connor throws into the mix, there's no way to standardize the flavor of the resulting product. As any mother who's been rejected by a nursing baby after a very garlicky meal can tell you, breast milk's flavor changes with diet and exercise.


But that's not deterring curious customers from coming to the Covent Garden establishment. According to the company's tweets (@theicecreamists), Baby Gaga sold out Friday due to overwhelming customer demand. Given the ice cream's success, it's not hard to imagine an enterprising American embracing the gimmick to get a little more money flowing into their creamery during this tough economic times.
