This Moon-Shaped, Crater-Covered Ice Cream Probably Tastes Like Adventure

If you’ve ever spent time looking at the majesty of the night sky and contemplating what it would be like to grab one of those heavenly celestial bodies and give ‘er a good lickin’, wonder no longer.

From London-based design firm Doshi Levien comes new Ice Moons for Häagen-Dazs, moon-shaped ice cream cakes designed to combine the “ephemeral” nature of ice cream with the “fantasy, adventure [and] imagination” of our favorite lunar body.

According to the firm’s Facebook page, these spacey spheres — designed for Christmas 2012 — take their inspiration from a children’s Bollywood song, Georges Méliès 1902 science fiction film Le Voyage dans la Lune and the relief work of Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian.

Dezeen Magazine explains, “The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream,” while “the orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.”

Unfortunately no word yet on pricing or availability, but if this is what the future of astronaut food looks like, it’s about freaking time.
