Who do goo goo gaga over Baby Gaga?

If you think Lady Gaga’s outrageous, how about Baby Gaga?

Baby Gaga. The world’s first ice cream made of human breast milk that’s available to the public.

The IceCreamist store in London is selling the stuff.

It goes down like this. Milk donations are solicited via the Internet. Like blood donations, they’re screened and tested for viruses before being routed into the manufacturing process.

The milk is churned with vanilla pods and lemon zest; it has the richness of gelato, according to proprietor Matt O’Connor, who stands firmly behind its nutritional value and natural sources. We’re all raised on mother’s milk, he says in an interview with a local radio host. The ice cream celebrates the miracle of motherhood.

A cup {insert wisecrack about size A, B, C or D} doesn’t come cheap. A serving in a martini glass costs $22.50.

Women are lining up to donate. No trickle in sales either. More like a gushing. Baby Gaga sold out by noon on the day it debuted last week.

No amount of hot fudge, whipped cream {cream from a cow, please!} and cherry could turn this into temptation for me. No goo goo gaga over Baby Gaga. More like gag gag gaga.

How ’bout you? Would you eat ice cream made of human breast milk? Why or why not?

Update: Sales are frozen. The product’s been confiscated so authorities can determine whether selling a food made of bodily fluids violates health safety standards.

      @kloppenmum – Being passionate about breastfeeding and consuming frozen breast milk from strangers {insert: whose milk was procured from Internet solicitation} is like comparing apples and, what, coconuts? {cheap wordplay for the coconut milk 🙂 } The reasons so many experience a natural aversion would make an interesting article. I hope someone (who isn’t me) takes it on.

    U C K!! what some people won’t to to make a buck, or a pound. And Lady Gaga is nothing more than a badly warmed over redo of Madonna.

      @Expat – From interviews, it’s clear that the proprietor isn’t in this to make a buck. He genuinely and sincerely believes in the product, its nutritional content, purity and natural source, noting that most of us were fed breast milk. He comes across as reasonable and articulate individual, if not a little eccentric for his idea. He raises a good point: We drink cow’s milk and have no problem with that. Why not human milk, which is superior in nutritional content. I see his points but they’re not enough for me to go “yum!”
