A British entrepreneur has created the world's first glow-in-the-dark ice cream - using jellyfish.

Charlie Francis has harnessed the fluorescent properties of the marine animal to develop the luminescent snack.

The ice cream reacts with the eater's tongue - raising the pH level in the protein and making it glow.

But one must ask, why do we need ice cream to glow in the dark...

So we know how much we have left when eating in the dark.  When to stop licking.

Do you often eat ice cream in the dark?
I usually reserve that for those *special* occasions. And in those cases, what you can't see, won't hurt you . AKA, let your fingers do the walking......

Ahem again....

So it only glows once it is in your mouth?  That has implications as to its use.

Yeah, I saw that.
I'm guessing it's something George clooney will stock up on for his orgies.
