Update on Gaga Breast Milk Ice Cream

March 10, 2011

In case you missed the earlier post on the subject, a UK store has invented an ice cream made from human breast milk. Called "Baby Gaga" and served by someone dressed to resemble the pop singer, the product certainly got worldwide attention after its release. Nevertheless, a few snags have emerged. First, the UK removed the ice cream flavor, saying it might not be fit for human consumption. Two complaints were filed by members of the public about the flavor, and the shop complied by removing the frozen treat from its store.

But, good news! After exhaustive testing, the UK government found the ice cream was safe for human consumption. In spite of that good news, greater trouble may be on the horizon for the ice cream makers. Lady Gaga herself plans to file a lawsuit against the company, calling the ice cream ‘nausea-inducing’ and ‘intended to take advantage of [her] reputation and goodwill.' The store owner responded that the pop princess could not trademark the word "Gaga," since it's one of the first words to come from a baby's mouth. He may have some trouble, though, since he used a woman dressed just like Lady Gaga to sell his ice cream. You can see the lady used to market the ice cream and the store's owner in the picture above. We'll see what happens in the coming days.
