One Scoop Is All You Need: Giant Ice Cream Scoop

Giant Ice Cream Scoop

One scoop is often never enough. But you probably won’t be asking for seconds if you’ve got this giant ice cream scooper. That’s because each scoop this doles out is equal to an entire pint! The scooper is made from fine brass and chrome, with the scooper itself being a 4-inch diameter bowl forged from high-quality stainless steel.

Heck, you’ll only need one scoop for the entire gang! But you can indulge in another scoop for yourself if you’re going through a particularly tough breakup…

Kickball Ice Cream Maker: I Kick for Ice Cream

Kickball Ice Cream Maker

 

 

Kicking a ball is lots of fun, and ice cream is always a welcome treat. I think it’s safe to say that something that combines both is destined to become a huge hit, like the Kickball Ice Cream Maker. The name is pretty much self explanatory. Just pour in cream, sugar, vanilla, and your flavoring of choice into the ball’s food-safe sealed compartment. Fill the space outside of that compartment with ice and rock salt, seal it up, and start kicking the ball around.

Twenty minutes of play will give you one pint of delicious ice cream to enjoy. Not bad, considering everyone had a ton of fun while making the icy treat.

The Kickball Ice Cream Maker is available online for $35.

For Deadly Frozen Treats: Samurai Sword Ice Pop Molds

Samurai Sword Ice Pop Molds

 

You won’t be able to cut anyone with these samurai swords, but you can give them an icy shot to the face and groin for good measure. That is, before you sit back yourself and cram the rest in your mouth. That’s because these aren’t actual swords (as you can obviously see), but ice pops make from the Samurai sword molds.

Make one for yourself, a pair so you can share with a friend, or half a dozen to spread that icy Samurai love all around. The molds are available online for $12.

Illuminate Your Taste Buds: Glow-in-the-Dark Ice Cream

Glow in the Dark Ice Cream

Each scoop of this ice cream is priced at £140 or about $225. That’s more expensive than most of the tubs you can find in your local grocery’s freezers, but for good reason: this ice cream glows in the dark. It’s made using the same protein that makes jellyfish glow by British foodie Charlie Francis, who’s the founder of the Lick Me I’m Delicious ice cream company.

Charlie explains: “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.”

But why does it glow? As Charlie explains further, the act of licking warms up the protein in the ice cream, causing an increase in its pH level, which produces the glow. Charlie adds: “Is it safe to eat? Well I tried some and I don’t seem to be glowing anywhere, so we’ll go with a yes for now. We’ve also made a non-jellyfish version using quinine from tonic to make a glow in the UV dark gin and tonic sorbet which is pretty neat.”

Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream: What’s Not to Like?

Facebook Ice Cream

What’s not to like…or what’s to like? Those are the questions when it comes to Facebook-flavored ice cream.

I don’t think it’s endorsed by Mark Zuckerberg but it actually exists. It was actually created by ice cream maker Admir Adili after he saw his 15-year-old daughter spending a lot of time on Facebook. So what does the social network taste like? Chewing gum and candy.

Ice Cream Heels Look Good Enough to Eat, But Look Pretty Silly When Worn

Ice Cream Heels

When it comes to Melissa footwear, it’s all about the plastic. So trust me when I say that while these ice cream heels look good enough to eat, they are clearly and obviously not edible. Melissa teamed up with Karl Lagerfeld to create a playful line of pumps that feature an ice cream cone on the heel.

It looks just any ordinary pair of pumps until you turn around and then BAM! It’s full-on ice cream exposure.

An Unusual Dessert: Japanese Condom/Boob Ice Cream

Condom Ice Cream

Ever wondered what condom ice cream tastes like? Then wonder no more, because now you can taste it for yourself–if you can get your hands on a Japanese frozen dessert called Gomu Yokki Aisu, that is. (That’s translates to ‘Ice Cream Filled Rubber’ in English, but it’s not being marketed as a condom ice cream in Japan. In my opinion (which many others share, including Youtuber emmymadeinjapan), it looks more like a boob anyway, and ice cream company Kubota agrees, since they used the same packaging as the former and called it Oppai Aisu or ‘Boob Ice.’

Gomu Yokki Aisu has been available for quite a while now, although the Japanese never really thought of it in that way (bless their minds!) until a Canadian exchange student ruined the perky icy treat for the whole nation by posting a review calling it ‘condom ice cream.’
