Bompas & Parr Crafts “World’s First Non-Melting Ice Lolly”
The age-old disappointment of ripping into an ice lolly to find a pool of sugary liquid is now a thing of the past thanks to Bompas & Parr.
The food design studio has created the “world’s first non-melting” ice lolly. The inspiration for the futuristic treat is a frozen composite material found during the second world war.
Although the ice lolly does eventually melt, the invention is capable of staying intact for an hour in 24-degree heat.
The long-lasting lollies were showcased at the British Museum of Food’s summer exhibition, SCOOP, in August. Here, visitors were able to taste the non-melting lollies for one day only.
The exhibition explored how our relationship with ice cream has evolved over the years. It also featured a luminescent cave with glow-in-the-dark ice cream and a sub-zero ice chamber.
Yet this is not the first time the food design studio has experimented on frozen treats with a twist. The duo actually created the aforementioned glow-in-the-dark ice cream, that allows cinema-goers to see their snacks in the dark.
If the prototype is successful, we may be seeing Bompas and Parr’s creation on our supermarket shelves in the future.
