Glow in the Dark Halloween Ice Cream from Lick Me I'm Delicious!

Mon, 21 October 2013

The amazing ice cream entrepreneur, Charlie Harry Francis has created the World’s first glow in the dark ice cream using synthesised jellyfish luminescence.
The amazing ice cream entrepreneur, Grand Ideas Award winner and 2012 Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist, Charlie Harry Francis has created the World’s first glow in the dark ice cream using synthesised jellyfish luminescence. 

The frozen glow ball reacts with your tongue at neutral PH, lighting up when you lick it and giving off an eerie green glow.
 
Charlie says;
'It’s probably the most expensive ice cream I’ve ever made; jellyfish luminescence is four times more expensive than gold so each scoop costs me around £140. It tastes pretty good though and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere.'
 
Charlie is the founder of experimental ice cream company Lick Me I’m Delicious. His company can make any flavour of ice cream using their fantastical ice cream contraptions; the Swirlywoosh portable ice cream parlour and the Whizzbang nitro ice cream buggy. To date, his team have created hundreds of ice cream creations including beer, cheddar cheese, roast beef and gold leaf flavours. 

As a Halloween treat, Charlie has kindly provided us with a new recipe! To make glow in the dark snow cones at home (without a jellyfish) you can follow this simple recipe;

Glowing Gin & Tonic Sorbet

400g caster sugar
800ml tonic water
4 tbsp gin
1 ultraviolet light

This recipe works because quinine, a standard ingredient in tonic water, glows under UV light. Here’s what to do - warm 400ml tonic water with the caster sugar over a low heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour in the rest of the tonic and the gin. Transfer to an ice cream mixer and leave to freeze. Serve under a UV light and enjoy your delicious glowing snow cone.
