Score one more for ice cream fans everywhere: a new brand of ice cream in South Korea may be the cure to hangovers.

The dessert was concocted by a South Korean convenience store chain, which markets it as the first ice cream to address the effects of drinking, Korean news site reported.

Appropriately, the grapefruit-flavored product is named the “Gyeondyo bar,” Korean for “hang in there,” the report added.

Citing a press release by the manufacturer, it said the ice cream bar’s name refers to the hardships of employees who have to end a hard working day with heavy drinking.

It added the product aims to give comfort to those who have to “come to work early after frequent nights of drinking.”

The treat’s secret ingredient is 0.7 percent oriental raisin tree fruit juice, supposedly used as a remedy for hangover as early as the 17th century.
