Edible Mist From The Guys Who Brought You Viagra Ice Cream

The world of molecular gastronomy is weird enough on its own. Add the folks who brought you Viagra ice cream? Well, you've got a surefire recipe for Willy Wonka on crack. See here The Edible Mist Machine from Lick Me I'm Delicious. First of all, props on acquiring that killer URL. Second, edible mist? What a bizarre thing to exist (let me know if you want me to keep rapping). Would you suck this stuff through a straw? 

According to the website, the company's founder grew up on a small ice cream farm in South Wales and has spent his entire life dreaming up magical ways to consume food. The machine uses ultrasonic vaporization to create a microscopic mist, which is then sucked through a straw and swirled around the mouth.

The mist produces a burst of flavor that satisfies even the most carnal desires for bacon. Yes, they have a smoked bacon mist.

Charlie Frances, the so-called ice cream farmer, explains the machine in a far simpler way: "If you took a glass of water and shook it, water droplets would shoot out.  If you shoot it at ultrasonic speeds, you'd have an edible mist machine." Voilà!

The unit is for rent at the starting price of £650 (about $1,100) and it looks like a gosh darn trip. Plus, you can say "this lunch sucks" without getting a swift backhand from your mom. 


Jeremy Glass is the Vice editor for Supercompressor and, yeah, would probably suck this mist.
