Something that I have been overly obsessed with lately is The Icecreamists. This relatively new company epitomizes what it means to be a modern day crusader within the food industry. Just when you thought sh*t couldn't get crazier, between the molecular gastronomy craze and foodies becoming increasingly demanding for innovation, The Icecreamists in the UK provide adventurists and foodies alike to be able to lick their addiction. Yeah, I know...these guys are my idols too.
Finally, their first ice cream boutique is open and rocking everyones' world.
The S&M/Punk/ Nirvana has been getting some serious press not just because of the aesthetic appeal, but because of their Breast Milk Ice Cream!
Okay now pay close attention:
Its is not a breast milk flavored- ice cream... the 75% breast milk (25% cream) is used as a base for a lemon zest and Madagascar vanilla bean flavored ice cream, however due to the amount of time lactating and other factors, the flavor can change dramatically from batch to batch.
fame whore Lady Gaga (barf) has sent a cease and desist letter to the Icecreamistss, saying that It tarnishes her reputation. Not only that but Matt O'Connor states that:
"Worse still she threatens me, my family and my personal assets (ask my ex-wife, she knows where they are), in an example of heavy-handed legal thuggery straight out of an episode of the Soprano’s....How can she possibly claim ownership of the word ‘gaga’ which since the dawn of time has been one of the first discernable phrases to come from a baby’s mouth. This is why we chose the name. She owns no rights in the primal utterances of our children."
Now I am not a huge Gaga fan anyways, but this puts me over the edge. Its okay for her to act different and make a statement but when someone else does it, she threatens their family and tries to ruin his business. RUDE. Anyways enough of the rant, Matt O'Connor is doing some seriously radical things besides the breast milk ice cream!
His hallucinatory freezer cabinets serves us nice portions of Viagra liquid nitrogen cocktails, globally inspired flavors and for people who seriously need to 'lick their addiction' and go into ice-cream rehab therapy, they can be treated in their boutique with various ice cream treatments, from syringe transfusions to baby bottles, bombes and more. My personal fave: hazelnut gelato served on PANNETONE (see below)! Drool.

At 22$USD/scoop the baby gaga Ice cream may not be for everyone, but I wish they could keep it in stock long enough for me to get my greedy hands on some, but no biggie; these foodie dream boats are beginning to make people wonder: Is it better to eat ice cream made with milk that is pumped with hormones, or to go Au Natural and use breast milk? Either way these crusaders are taking the ice cream world by storm and I am totally along for the ride. Are you ready to lick your addiction?
