Gruesome blood and bile ice lollies dished out in Loch Lomond

Daredevil staff at the Loch Lomond Sealife Aquarium got in touch with their cannibalistic side when they took a blood-sucking taste of some gruesome ice lollies last week.

Sister tourism venue the Edinburgh Dungeon had the blood lollies produced as part of a marketing stunt and the workers at the Balloch centre were keen to sample them.

The limited-edition blood lollies have a repulsively realistic, earthy and metallic taste, designed to mimic the moist flavours a cannibal would have experienced when biting into the human heart.

And from the expression on the staff members’ faces they were not as keen on them as the sharks which prowl the tanks at the Loch Lomond Shores centre might have been.

Jelly and Gin developed blood, yellow bile and phlegm ice lollies.
