New here? Start here...
Yep. That's what I read earlier this week in a bit of weird news online. Apparently, a shop in London is selling this "premo creamo" to the masses. I bet not the masses though, because founder Matt O'Connor is selling this stuff at a whopping $23 a serving! You know how much I have to justify a $4.50 purchase of my beloved Breyers each time I go food shopping? So I don't know who is exactly coughing up the dough for this particular ice cream.
Now yes, we all know how wonderful and miraculous breastmilk can be, but really Matt? Really? You really expect me to walk up to your counter and ask for a scoop of "Sarah's Batch"?!
Everyone's gotta have a gimmick I guess. He's marketing it as..... "Baby Gaga". (Now if I did have a mouthful of milk in my mouth when I read this, believe you me that it would have gotten spit out all over my computer keys.) I'll admit that I did laugh at the name though because that's pretty clever.
The milk comes from 15 women donors that responded to an online classified ad. He mixes their milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest and then churns it into the ice cream.
Did I ever tell you that I once tried to sell my breastmilk online? Yep. It was many moons ago, because I thought to myself "Wait a second, not all mothers could do this, but I'm sure they wish they could still give their kids breastmilk. I wonder if there is a market for this stuff." Turns out there was, but just in the form of weird and creepy old men with weird things on their minds. Eeek! I retracted my ad within the day, and never looked down that rabbit hole again. Until today. How come it's okay to sell breastmilk ice cream, but not okay to give it away to babies in need?
Or is it? Come on ladies, sound off on this HOT TOPIC. I know we all have an opinion on this one. What do you say - gross or genius?
P.S. This will close out this week of posts. Come back on Monday when we will be hosting a GREAT GIVEAWAY!!!!! (remember those?) So Monday it is then.
