Viagra Ice Cream?

Viagra Question

While traveling in Italy, my girlfriend and I stopped in at a gelato shop. I saw one flavor of the gelato identified as Viagra gelato. Does it contain the same active ingredient as Viagra?


Answer

It would be nice to get the erection-friendly effects of Viagra for the cost of an ice cream cone, but sadly the gelato you saw in Italy contains none of the little blue pill’s active ingredient.

However, it does match the iconic deep-blue hue of the Viagra tablet. An article posted at Delish.com says that some of the Viagra gelato sold in shops throughout Italy actually does contain herbal ingredients that reputedly have effects similar to Viagra, but none actually contain sildenafil citrate.

Those who have actually tried Viagra gelato from different shops across Italy say that the deep-blue gelato taste varies from one shop to another.

In some places, it tastes like bubble gum or black liquorice, while in others its taste is likened to that of cotton candy (does cotton candy even have a taste?).

Back in 2014, award-winning U.K. food inventor Charlie Harry Francis actually created a batch of Viagra-infused ice cream for a wealthy client. Each scoop of the ice cream reportedly contained 25 milligrams of sildenafil citrate, and Francis dubbed his Viagra ice cream “Arousal.”
