Royal Baby Gaga, The Licktators

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! But ice cream made of breast milk?

Apparently, there's a market for that, because a London-based company called The Licktators has relaunched "breast milk ice cream" in honor of royal baby No. 2's imminent arrival.

"Royal Baby Gaga"-flavored ice cream is made with "donated breast milk-screened in line with hospital standards," according to the Licktators' Facebook page. Fair warning, though: This sweet treat (?) is controversial, for obvious reasons, but it's also potentially dangerous. Per NPR, samples of a similar breast milk ice cream were seized by British officials back in 2011 over health concerns. The items were later allowed back on the market for our friends across the pond, but just be advised to lick with caution (if at all).

Back to the latest, um, common creamery product—according the The Licktators' Facebook page, Victoria Hiley (who was involved in the aforementioned 2011 dessert, called "Baby Gaga" breast milk ice cream) teamed up with ice cream maker Matt O'Connor to create the product.

"There was huge support from breastfeeding women for Baby Gaga ice cream in 2011, yet some politicians still stigmatise women for breastfeeding in public," said Leeds. "We thought the birth of a Royal baby was a great time to whip up support for mums and say that when it comes to ice cream this summer, breast is best...After all, what else would you give your young prince or princess?"

If you happen to be lactating yourself, you can use your own milk to make Baby Gaga ice cream thanks to a homemade recipe provided by The Licktators. Otherwise, pink and blue tubs of "Royal Baby Gaga" breast milk ice cream will be available in select stores. According The Licktators' Facebook page, all profits from the sales will be donated to a breastfeeding charity.
