A Canadian company called Sweet N’ Nice has launched a new ice cream flavor that is inspired by lizards, but not in the way you might think. The flavor is called Lizard Lick and it is a tropical blend of mango, pineapple, coconut, and lime. The name comes from the fact that lizards are often seen licking their eyes to keep them moist and clean, and the company wanted to create a flavor that would make people feel refreshed and hydrated.
The company claims that the flavor is vegan, gluten-free, and made with natural ingredients. They also say that it is a tribute to their Caribbean heritage, as lizards are a common sight in the islands. The company was founded by two cousins who wanted to share their grandmother’s ice cream recipes with the world. They started selling their ice cream from a bicycle cart in Toronto in 2013, and have since expanded to various stores and online platforms.
The flavor has received mixed reactions from customers and social media users
The Lizard Lick flavor has been available since August 2023, and has received mixed reactions from customers and social media users. Some people have praised the flavor for being delicious, refreshing, and unique, while others have expressed confusion, disgust, or curiosity about the name and the ingredients.
One customer wrote on Instagram: “I tried the Lizard Lick flavor today and it was amazing! So creamy and fruity, and the lime gave it a nice kick. I love that it’s vegan and natural too. Great job Sweet N’ Nice!” Another customer commented on Facebook: “I was skeptical about the Lizard Lick flavor, but I decided to give it a try. It was actually pretty good, but the name still grosses me out. Why would you name an ice cream after a lizard? It makes me think of reptiles and bugs.”
Some social media users have also made jokes or memes about the flavor, comparing it to other unusual ice cream flavors or suggesting alternative names. One user tweeted: “Lizard Lick ice cream? What’s next, Crocodile Crunch? Snake Shake? Frog Fudge?” Another user posted a picture of a lizard licking its eye with the caption: “Me after trying the Lizard Lick ice cream.”
The company hopes to attract more customers and raise awareness about lizards
The company behind the Lizard Lick flavor says that they hope to attract more customers and raise awareness about lizards with their new product. They say that lizards are fascinating creatures that deserve respect and appreciation, and that their ice cream is a way of celebrating their diversity and beauty.
They also say that they are planning to donate a portion of their profits from the Lizard Lick flavor to a wildlife conservation organization that works to protect lizards and their habitats. They have not yet announced which organization they will partner with, but they say that they will reveal more details soon.
The company invites people to try their Lizard Lick flavor and share their feedback and photos on their website and social media pages. They say that they are always open to suggestions and ideas for new flavors, and that they are constantly experimenting with different combinations and ingredients. They say that their goal is to make ice cream that is sweet, nice, and fun for everyone.
