Breast Milk Ben and Jerry's?
OMG, stop the madness. First it was this Swedish chef who wanted to put breast milk in his curries and soups. Now PETA has sent a letter to Ben and Jerry's, urging them to replace cow's milk with mother's milk in their ice cream.
From the letter:
If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.
Yes, PETA is made up of crazy people, but I'm not sure why this strikes me as such a bad idea. It's not as though cows and goats are cleaner than humans, but the idea of human milk really skeeves me out. But not everyone thinks so! In fact, I have a very nice and normal co-worker who recently rhapsodized to me about how she feels that breast milk would be delicious in a sweet dessert.
No, Ben and Jerry's isn't going to be making the switch to breast milk anytime soon. But imagine the naming possibilities: Double D Dutch Chocolate? Boobalicious Berry?Fudge Nipple?
Would you eat breast milk ice cream? Would you sell your milk for ice cream?
