Defeat a hangover with Pepto ice cream?

​Hangover cures never appear to be designed with the average person's tastebuds in mind. And that's probably your first thought when you hear about the latest hangover cure: Pepto-Bismol ice cream.

Blogjam sought to combine two reliable hangover consumables in one meal. The ice cream seems to help with sweats, while the dairy and eggs provide Vitamin B12 -- vitamin deficiency is one of the suggested causes of hangovers. 

In the ice cream recipe, vanilla and sugar were used to cut the flavor of the Pepto. But the cream left the overall color closer to eggshell than the traditional pink. A splash of red food coloring brought back the familiar color of school-room tiles. Ice cream purists relax -- this was not a very natural dish to start with.

Blogjam feels a moment of pause when the frequently asked questions about Pepto-Bismol reveal that the product shouldn't be frozen. After a non-committal answer from consumer relations, the blogger plunges forward with his hangover cure. The end result is an ice cream reminiscent of black cherry.   

VooDoo Donut in Portland, Oregon, offered the Vanilla Pepto Crushed Tums doughnut until county health officials nixed the idea of a medicinal doughnut. There's even a recipe out there for a Pepto cocktail -- although Fat City doesn't condone the mixing of alcohol and medicine. We're not even sure we condone Pepto and ice cream.
