Hypercolour ice-cream: Lick to change its shade
A new kind of hypercolour ice-cream has been invented, which changes hue from pale blue to deep purple to pink when it's licked.
A team led by Spanish physicist, engineer and ice cream enthusiast Manuel Linares created Xamaleon, a means of treating ice-cream so that it changes colour when it's eaten, CNet reported.
Linares said that he was inspired by British food inventor Charlie Francis' glow-in-the-dark ice cream to create an ice cream that changed colour.
He revealed that the pale blue fruit salad-flavoured ice-cream has been sprayed with a fully edible spray, called the elixir of love, which changes colour due to several factors, like, temperature, oxidation and the acidity of the tongue.
The hypercolour ice-cream would only be available in Linares' IceXperience ice-cream shops in the towns of Calella de Mar and Blanes in Spain.
