Viagra Ice Cream Gets You in the Mood

Just when you thought the custom dessert world couldn't get any weirder, Charlie Harry Francis has created an ice cream that's not so much an aphrodisiac as it is a medically proven erectile disfunction treat.

The self-proclaimed "edible inventor" recently made a Viagra-laced ice cream flavor called The Arousal. It's no surprise that this odd, medicinal flavor was the result of a request from a celebrity client who was "very happy with the end result," according to the Huffington Post. That makes sense given that each scoop of champagne-flavored light blue Arousal contains 25 milligrams of Viagra. And you thought pot cookies were as medible as it gets.

Although Francis can't say which A-list celeb requested Viagra in ice cream form because he signed a confidentiality agreement, it's almost more fun to guess. For some reason, Mel Gibson makes sense as our choice, but maybe that's just his craziness seeping into our consciousness.

According to his blog, Lick Me I'm Delicious, this is one of the weirder requests he's gotten. However, Francis has also been known to dabble in glow-in-the-dark confections and Viagra-laced pastries.
