275x250.jpg A wacky restaurant in London has started selling ice cream which is made from human breast milk… and served with a rusk and shot of Calpol.

Bosses at The Icecreamists in Covent Garden say the £14 per serving 75% breast milk ice cream - dubbed Baby Gaga - is surprisingly tasty and good for you.

After the breast milk has been expressed on site it is pasteurised and then churned with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest. Then it's ready to go on sale.

Because of demand, the restaurant is now appealing for breast milk donations and say women will be paid £15 for every 10 ounces of milk… who's going to be nipping out to give it a try?

275x250.jpgMeasuring a mouth-burning 1.17 million on the Scoville Scale, this is the the hottest chilli in the world… and it was grown by accident in Lincolnshire.

Dubbed the 'Infinity Chilli' the fiery food has been tested by boffins who say it's considerably hotter than previous title holder, the Bhut Jolokia, from India.

It was grown by green-fingered Nick Woods who runs 'Fire Foods' from his home and says one day he notices the crossbreed chilli in his greenhouse.

Intrigued, he decided to sample it, but he soon regretted the move when a powerful burning sensation hit the back of his throat and was so strong he couldn't talk.

Speaking of the chilli he said: "I felt physically sick. I really wouldn't recommend anybody eat it raw like that"… obviously we didn't ask him for a quote straight after eating one.

275x250.jpgA DIY firm says it expects to score a bizarre royal wedding hit… by launching a pair of special royal wedding inspired gnomes.

The gnomes are set to go on sale in B&Q stores mid-April in the build up to the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton £12.98 each.

As you may have noticed, the wedding gnomes are not caricatures of the duo - unless Wills is expected to grow an impressive white beard in the next couple of months - but traditional gnomes.

While the male "patriotic garden ornament" has a blue suit on, she is wearing a wedding dress - both are topped off with union flag pointy hats.

And there was us thinking the strangest royal wedding memorabilia we'd see this year was the 'Crown Jewels Condoms' -- If you see any equally odd Wills and Kate items, please let us know.

200x190.jpgJust because the iPhone is one of the most technologically advanced communication devices known to man, doesn't mean it has to look it.

At least that's the idea behind a new case which is designed to make your Apple gizmo look more like a 1980s-style handset.

Makers Thumbs-Up say they hope the retro styling of their £12.99 80s iPhone Case will be a hit with phone users who are looking for something a bit different.

After sliding their iPhone into the retro holder, users have a device which looks like it could have come straight out of Del Boy's hand, but still has all the mod cons.

And because the iPhone can sometimes have a dubious call quality, your shouting into the handset just makes the whole thing look more authentically 80s.

275x250.jpg A condom manufacturer has announced it will a special range of prophylactics to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Which is nice.

The protection - which comes with the slogan "Lie back and think of England" - are due to go on sale ahead of the April 29th wedding.

Makers say the condoms are a unique way to remember the royal wedding, adding that they 'combine the strength of a Prince with the yielding sensitivity of a Princess-to-Be.'

Each pack of three condoms comes with a leaflet including a photo of the happy couple (not like that) and is presented in a 'timeless souvenir heirloom collector’s box'.
