(Scroll down for video) People who suffer headaches or nausea the morning after a night of drinking, can now cure their problems with ice cream.

A chain of convenience stores has announced that they are now selling the “hang in there" ice cream bar, which promised to cure hangovers caused by excessive drinking of alcohol.

The company said that this is the first ice cream bar marketed specifically to combat post-alcohol effects. The product has reached the stores on Friday.

The grapefruit-flavored ice cream contains 0.7 percent oriental raisin tree fruit juice, a traditional remedy for hangover used in the country for the past 400 years.

The ice cream bar is not the only hangover cure in the country.

Every year, consumers spend $120 million to cure hangovers by purchasing pills, beverages and cosmetics that promise to cure lingering alcohol effects.
