Summer Delight: An Arousing New Treat

By Nogarlicnoonions @nogarlicnoonion

Succulent strawberries, pricey oysters, and decadent chocolate probably come to mind when you think of aphrodisiacs. But the traditionally “sexy” foods don’t stand a chance against a sensual new ice cream. Yes, ice cream. Created by self-proclaimed “edible inventor” Charlie Harry Francis, “arousal,” a new blue-colored ice cream, might mean you never have to pop those little blue pills again.


Francis was asked to create a Viagra-laced ice cream for a party for one of his A-list celebrity clients, according to his aptly named blog, “Lick Me I’m Delicious.” Each scoop of the champagne-flavored ice cream contains 25 mg of the well-known male enhancement drug — the same amount in the lowest dose of the drug.

It’s not the first time he’s been asked to come up with a cheeky flavor. He’s created a sprout sorbet, a glow-in-the-dark ice cream, and even something called “Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow.” Don’t worry, it’s nothing more than white chocolate and meringue ice cream with a mango coulis on top.

In 2009, students of a Colombian culinary school concocted a passion-fruit dessert containing Viagra for a showcase, though the pudding-like treat was never available for sale.

While Francis said he was required to sign a confidentiality agreement with his client, he was allowed to say this: The client was “very happy with the end result,” Francis wrote on his blog. Interesting choice of words.

If you weren’t lucky enough to attend this party and try the lickable concoction yourself, don’t fret. Francis told the Latin Times that while there aren’t any plans to commercialize the flavor, he’d be happy to re-create “arousal” for his clients in the future.

We’ll have two scoops, please.
