WikiPearls: the future of ice cream?

24 Jul

WikiPearls

Just found a fascinating article from TheKitchn.com about a brand new frozen treat called ”WikiPearls.”These little treats consist of your standard ice cream, but wrapped inside a flavorful skin. They won’t melt all over you and make a mess, and they are positively delicious. Is this where ice cream is headed in the future? Here’s what The Kitchn had to say:

“The ice cream comes in three flavors: mango ice cream with coconut skin, chocolate ice cream with hazelnut skin, and vanilla ice cream with peanut skin. Currently you can only get WikiPearls at the WikiBar in Paris.

The masterminds behind the protective membrane, Harvard professor David Edwards and French designer Francois Azambourg, say the purpose of these protective skins, or WikiCells, is to reduce waste and improve the consumer’s health through vitamin-supplemented skins and portion control. One ice cream ball has only 50 calories.”

Check out the rest of the article here, and let us know what you think of this new sweet treat!
