Unsuspecting moviegoers in London were given an enlightening treat while watching The World’s End.

Bakers/candy artists/mad scientists Bompas & Parr had gotten to the viewers’ Cornetto cones beforehand and made them glow.

Obviously not a finicky bunch and up for anything, the moviegoers dove in, creating a veritable light show throughout the theater and on their tongues.

I Scream For Glow In The Dark Ice Cream

ku-bigpic

Glow in the Dark Ice Cream is an interesting new treat created by Charlie Francis. Made possible by the same luminescent proteins that light up jellyfish, a synthesized version is applied to the ice cream to give it its glow.

And, just like the jellyfish from which it’s borrowed from, the ice cream glows brighter when agitated — so the more you lick, the brighter it glows.

But coolness factor doesn’t come cheap, as a scoop would cost about $225 — without sprinkles or a cone. And, although it doesn’t help stop doors, it will make eating your ice cream alone in the dark a lot easier.

Glow In The Dark Sushi Exists

We’ve seen it on a stick, immortalized in LEGOS, and now it glows in the dark. Glowing Sushi is a new and rather disturbing food trend, and the fish used are 100% real. GloFish, as they are known, are genetically-modified zebrafish that were originally used for environmental purposes to help indicate a contaminated river. The GloFish technology was then used on pet fish to help add some flair to your home aquarium.

Now, the fluorescent fish are being rolled up in rice and adding further insult to sushi culture. Brought to us by a few members of  The Center for Genomic Gastronomy, they created three different rolls including; Kryptonite Rolls, Stop and Glow Nigirizushi and ‘Not in California’ Rolls. California is currently the only state that does not allow the sale of glowing fish. Good call Arnold.
