Glow-in-the-dark ice cream the next food craze?

Glow-in-the-dark ice cream the next food craze?from Novelty foods are all the rage. Just look at the cronut craze that hit New York earlier this fall, with fans shelling out upwards of $100 and waiting hours in line for a taste of the new twist on the breakfast staple. Now, a British foodie has unveiled what might become the next cronut: glow-in-the-dark ice cream. To create the glowing treat, inventor and entrepreneur Charlie Francis, founder of the Lick Me I’m Delicious ice cream company, synthesized the protein that gives jellyfish their glow. It’s similar to the way that scientists produced glowing bunnies earlier this year. “It’s glow in the dark jellyfish ice cream using calcium activated proteins that react when they are agitated, or to put it a non sciencey way, it glows when you lick it,” Francis explained on Lick Me’s blog.
