As if we needed a better excuse to continue to eat like shit after a night of heavy drinking, a company in South Korea has invented an ice cream bar they claim will cure your hangover.
It’s called the Gyeondyo-bar, which translates to “hang in there”. Brilliant.
Reuters reports, “The grapefruit-flavored dessert contains 0.7 percent oriental raisin tree fruit juice, a traditional hangover remedy cited in a Korean medicine book from the 17th century that is included in popular hangover potions,” adding, “a 2012 article in the Journal of Neuroscience found oriental raisin tree extract reduced symptoms of intoxication in rats.”
Does it actually work in curing your hangover? Who knows. But, after a night of going hard, we’re willing to try anything that doesn’t taste like shame and vomit.
Remember, this is the country that gave us Gangnam Style, so I’m assuming these people know a thing or two about morning after regrets.
