Say Hello To The Ice Cream That Can Cure Hangovers

Carry on drinking?

Forget pills, fry ups or the hair of the dog. The best way to cure a hangover has arrived - in the form of ice cream.

A Korean convenience store has just started stocking the Gyeondyo-bar, which literally means 'hang in there'.

The ice cream is welcome news for Koreans who are known to love a drink and according to a report by WHO, consume 12.3 liters of alcohol per year - the most in Asia-Pacific.

We await the UK shipment. Until then, it's off to the greasy spoon for an all day breakfast.
