"... he insists the ingredients are all natural..."

Yeah, well, hemlock is all natural too.

I thought all ice cream turned a nice shade of brown after you ate it.

Milk; cream; sugar; natural flavoring.

Putting aside that there's probably cancer causing toxins in it, wouldn't the novelty of it wear off like instantly?

Another strange invention. A bit like glow in the dark condoms "oh there it is! Nope, gone again. There it is! Nope, gone again.."

The type of people who would have sex in the dark are probably Puritan types who wouldn't use condoms in the first place, definitely not novelty ones.

FTFA: "When he asked me what type I was going to make, I said one that changes colour," Linares is quoted as saying in the Australian Times.

it actually adds some thrill sometimes as you're then use your other sensations more. Instilling works the same way but then what'd be the point in glow in the dark condoms?

You're turning violet, Violet!

I like to see where I'm going but to each their own. I have no idea what unholy substance glow in the dark stuff is made of but to put it in scientific terms, I wouldn't put it on my joint or inside a girl's hooo-ha any more than I would eat color changing ice cream.

Call me buzzkill, but I don't understand all of this farking with food.  You know there have to be some not-too-widely tested/used chemicals to create all of this culinary genius and I have absolutely no desire to try any of it.

Those commercials on now for the neon-colored frosting from Betty Crocker or Pillsbury or whomever make me feel like yakking every time I see one.

Heightening of tactile sensation is indeed a factor in darkness, as well as being a part of a well-rounded repetoire in long-term relationships - the thrill of not knowing what's coming next.
Glow in the dark condoms make the time before committing to exclusivity a bit more fun as they should also be used for oral sex - a cool visual in the dark.

The colors sound like litmus paper to me. Guessing it's a pH thing.

+eggs, although technically that's frozen custard.

Ice cream that changes color as you eat it is a new thing?

Been done. El Bulli did this more than a decade ago.
 
2014-08-01 08:17:00 AM  
We called this "neapolitan" ice cream; the three colors would melt together into an unappetizing brown.

Ice cream may become a staple snack for partiers, as he is working on an ice cream that reacts to ultraviolet lights - or black lights - often found in nightclubs


Because when I'm at the club doing the macarena (or what ever dance you crazy kids do now) I really want to be sliding through melted ice cream blobs.

August11: Well I completely missed the glow in the dark ice cream.


as did i! i came in here to say that.

i can't think about those without thinking about that movie "casual sex" with john ritter and victoria jackson

and didn't this color-change coolness go away after about 6 months of HYPERCOLOR t-shirts?
 
2014-08-01 08:46:50 AM  
What is the next step? The ice cream that would sing you a song while you eat it, or rather screams "NOOOOOOOO" and tries to wiggle out of your grasp and escape?

bungle_jr: and didn't this color-change coolness go away after about 6 months of HYPERCOLOR t-shirts?


Yeah, it gave some folks horrible rashes.  I wonder what this shiat will do?  Internal rashes?

Still no cure for brain freeze.

It's cabbage juice he adds. It's an old as dirt science experiment for kids. Boil red cabbage up and the solution goes blue or purple depending on how basic or acidic. Natural pH indicator.

Ice cream that tastes like farts? I can picture the Ben & Jerry's label now...

Meh.  This is more impressive.

"Ice cream"

No

A little late for the "It does change colors after you eat it" crowd, but no mention of nuts, or corn, not to mention various other forms of matter.

Before the ice cream is served, it is sprayed with a concoction Linares calls a "love elixir" that accelerates the reaction.

Yeah, I sprayed some ice cream with 'love elixir' before serving it once. Now I'm required to inform people when I move to their neighborhood.

Clemkadidlefark: No


fark, I came here to say just that.
 
2014-08-02 03:09:18 PM  
They have already had color-changing ice cream for decades, it's called Rainbow Sherbet.  Bright Green, Purple and Orange, when you mix them together you get a light, almost white beige.  What kind of God would allow that?
