With what some are saying to be the beginnings of a flu epidemic, many are scrambling to get themselves a flu shot, resulting in a shortage of the vaccine.

But there is now another way you can fight off the flu and flu-like symptoms. Eat some ice-cream.

Actually, sorbet to be more precise. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has just come up with a concoction of lemon, cayenne pepper, ginger, honey, and Maker’s Mark Bourbon.

While ginger fights against nausea and honey coats the throat giving relief, the secret ingredient Pectin is what really helps deliver flu relief. Pectin can be regularly found in coughdrops.

Owner Jeni Britton Bauer says, “I’ve had people tell me it’s the only thing that makes them feel better. It actually does have a physical effect. It’s just what people need.”

However, some remain skeptic.

“It’s cute but I’d like to see the science behind it,” says Doris Bucher who was part of the team that helped develop this year’s flu vaccine with a team of scientists at New York Medical College. “It might spice you up or knock you out — but it’s no vaccine.”
