Gagtastic: Breast Milk Ice Cream

02.24.11


I was breastfed. I breastfed both of my children, one more successfully than the other. I think it’s nice when mothers of infants feel comfortable nursing in public, but I think it’s less nice when women with older children bare their breasts in clear acts of defiance in public.

At one point a chef in Switzerland added “Mother’s Milk” to his menu, only to be shut down by the health department.

Today in London the Icecreamists is offering breast milk ice cream. Their new flavor Baby Gaga combines breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest for an appealing(?) ice cream. The milk comes from 15 women and the ice cream sells for $23 (£14) a serving.

I’m wondering if anyone but over the top lactivists and fetishists would buy this? I’m not sure I’d buy regular cow milk ice cream from a place that sold this. You?

    I would totally buy it. To take pictures. It’s probably safer than cow’s milk though. For now.

    That is disgusting. And no, I wouldn’t want regular ice cream from that place either. Ga!

  3. I can’t get past all those fabulous made up words to process this post. Gagtastic,icecreamists, lactivists… almost worth the repulsive topic.

    Didn’t vegetarians decide this was acceptable since humans can consent to being “milked”, lol? I’m curious why anyone thinks taking fluids from a cow makes more sense than taking them from humans. We’re not baby cows.

  5. Holy shit that is nasty. And now, I am putting away the ice cream container…

  6. I hated pumping – I can’t imagine having to pump enough to make… ice cream. (But other than that, I just find it kinda silly. Mind you, I’m also a fan of trying “weird” food.)
