There’s nothing better than a cone of cold, fruit-flavored ice cream on a hot day, unless it’s a cold, fruit-flavored ice cream cone that changes color as you lick it! That’s what Xamaleón does. The name of the ice cream, “Xamaleón,” is meant to resemble “chameleon,” according to the ice cream’s inventor, Manuel Linares. Linares is a former physicist who opened an ice cream shop in Blanes, Spain. He’s not giving away the secrets of the color-changing ice cream, which tastes like a combination of fruit.
What we do know is the ice cream is made with natural ingredients like strawberries, banana, vanilla and almonds. Additionally, Linares sprays what he calls a “love elixir” on the ice cream after it’s scooped to help accelerate the reaction. We probably won’t know the whole story behind Xamaleón until Linares secures a patent for his creation, which is pending.
I wouldn’t worry too much about secret ingredients; it’s probably something like this. Read more about the color-changing ice cream at Discover magazine. -via Digg
