Would You Try Breast Milk Ice Cream? I Would.

It’s true!  I totally would.  But before I explain myself, here’s why I’m asking:  A London ice cream shop called Icecreamists decided to make ice cream out of women’s surplus breast milk. 
Baby Gaga Breast Milk Ice CreamAnd guess what?  They sold out of it!  Within days!  So obviously, even if the first round of ice cream doesn’t necessarily indicate that it tastes really good, there are apparently tons of people willing to at least try it.  They call their creation “Baby Gaga” Breast Milk Ice Cream, as you can see in the photo.
It’s expensive, though.  One serving is 14 pounds, or $22.50 US. Here’s a video about it, which I think is funny because it’s British and they’re much more witty than us Americans.

My Thoughts:  Like I said before, I would totally try it (even if it is super expensive)!  With food, I am one who adopts the motto “I’ll try anything once.”  Just like the store founder said in an interview:  “It’s pure, it’s natural, it’s organic, and it’s free range—and if it’s good enough for our kids, it’s good enough to use in our ice cream.” As a note, the store also said that they did testing on the breast milk used to make sure it was free of diseases/abnormalities/etc.
I’m not really surprised someone decided to use breast milk, considering in the past few years many women have turned to online marketplaces to sell their surplus milk.  Yes, people do buy it, presumably to drink it themselves…at least Icecreamists is being creative with the stuff! 
Maybe, when I have kids, I’ll use my extras to make mac and cheese or brownies or something?  Or would that just be creepy?
Would you try breast milk ice cream?  Would you try breast milk at all?  Why or why not?!
