The inhabitat website brings to attention the Lick Me, I'm Delicious website, a place where traditional ice cream flavours are out the door and sporting instead "a whole range of uniquely flavored ice-cream for adventurous palates looking to buck the norm." Among them, glow-in-the-dark ice cream made from synthesized jellyfish luminescence.

On his company’s website, Lick Me I’m Delicious, Bristolian Charlie Harry Francis said: “We’ve been working with a company who have managed to synthesise a protein extracted from jellyfish that causes bioluminescence to occur. We’re using a specific form of this protein which reacts with calcium at a neutral PH, causing the protein to glow when it comes into contact with calcium, i.e. when it’s agitated, i.e. when it’s licked.”

Unfortunately, the unique ice cream comes with a hefty price tag, meaning you probably won’t see it in your average ice cream van any time soon. A single scoop will set you back a whopping £140. However, there is a reason for the high price tag.
