Cafe serves up world's first Prime-flavoured ICE CREAM inspired by popular drink – but there's a catch | The Sun
A SEASIDE café is serving the world's first Prime energy drink ice cream.
Makcari's has created a unique gelato based on the popular drink promoted by YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul.
The ice cream parlour is selling the outlandish new flavour for just £3.50 a scoop or £5 for two.
Following its launch on February 10, owner Hassan Hassan, 43, says the treat sold out within 48 hours – highlighting the rabid demand for the energy drink.
The café, located in Herne Bay, Kent – which also sells questionable alternatives such as Mushy Peas, Tomato Ketchup and Marmite – says it hopes the flavour will continue to be a summer sell-out.
"It's not just been a success, but has been a huge success," Hassan told NeedToKnow.online.

"It's already a best-seller.
"Our other flavours would usually take a week to sell out.
"There are so many kids out there who haven’t been able to get hold of a bottle because of the ridiculous prices with re-selling.
"It’s just hugely popular and we try to look out for the trends like that."

The main issue for Hassan and brother Nejmi has been finding the supply to match the demand.
However, they say that as long as they are able to source the coconut-flavoured drink at a reasonable cost, they'll continue to sell it.
Prime Hydration has caused a craze across the UK in recent months, with the beverage selling for much more than its £2 retail price.
Shoppers have queued outside supermarkets to purchase the drink, which first hit shelves last year.
Empty bottles on eBay are currently being sold for £16,000.
