PMS ice cream makes it OK to eat your feelings

If only “I Need Some More” mint chip and “I Think I’m Dying” strawberry were actually available in stores.

Premenstrual Syndrome, otherwise known as PMS, can be brutal. If you’ve ever been so plagued by cramps, bloating, and mood swings that you’ve been on the verge of committing homicide, then this PMS-themed ice cream is definitely for you.

Created by graphic designer Parker Jones, the pint packages accurately reflects the intense feelings that come with your monthly cycle. Simple vanilla bean may not alleviate your cramps, but perhaps “Don’t Come Near Me” chocolate will help.

The good news is that the ice cream comes in multiple flavors, such as “I Need Some More” mint chip and “I Think I’m Dying” strawberry. But the bad news is that these flavors aren’t actually for sale. In fact, they don’t exist at all. They’re part of a creative project by Jones, who has a bunch of other fake food products in her portfolio, such as the pun-tastic Edgar Allan Poe Boy sandwich.

The ice cream pints also feature markers to denote just how serious your PMS is based on how much ice cream you’ve eaten.

If this actually existed, there’s a good chance that getting down to the “day seven” marker would send some women into an emotional tailspin. But the sweet ignorance of not knowing exactly how much you consumed in one sitting makes it somewhat acceptable.
