Ever felt paralyzed by the choice between two equally delicious ice cream flavors? Fear not – Elizabeth Fenner, a food science graduate student at the University of Missouri, may have solved your dilemma.
Fenner and associate professor Ingolf Gruen used a technique called “micro-encapsulation” to create ice cream that changes flavors as it melts in your mouth.
Recently, the blogosphere has been all atwitter about the world’s first amphibious ice cream truck, which first set sail on the Thames last month. It was created by Cadbury ice cream in celebration of National Ice Cream Week (May 30th – June 5th). This summer it will be touring UK beaches and selling tasty treats on land and sea.

Over 6,000 Brazilian children participated in the 4-day construction effort earlier this month in Sao Paulo, crafting small sections of the monument.
