These Are All The Glorious Things You Can Do Inside The Museum Of Ice Cream
If you're lucky enough to live in New York this summer, I'm sure you already have the Museum of Ice Cream down on your bucket list.
If you haven't heard about this ~new addition~ to the city, then you're in for quite a treat. (LOL treat, get it?)
The museum, which opens on July 29, lives in the heart of Manhattan's Meatpacking District. It's basically paradise for your sweet tooth and a candy land for the sugar-obsessed.
The museum is only open for a short period of time, however, so if you aren't able to make it to the Big Apple in the next few months, you're probably gonna miss out.
Have no fear, though! If you can't make it (or, if you're planning on going and want a sneak peek), we've got you covered.
Elite Daily's Social Editor Lydia Mansel and I were able to check out the Museum of Ice Cream before it opens to get the inside scoop. (LOL SCOOP, GET IT?!)
To put it simply, visiting the museum was probably the highlight of my summer. It was basically a giant playground filled with ice cream, candy and endless Instagramable opportunities.
Lydia and I ditched work (SORRY EVERYONE!) to go eat ice cream and check out NYC's newest museum.
As soon as we entered the building, this nice lady gave us a scoop of ice cream! TWO MINUTES IN, AND I'M HAVNG THE TIME OF MY LIFE.
She let us try the Blue Marble Organic Vanilla flavor. FANCY AF. Sprinkle some Froot Loops on dis shit.
I didn't eat my second lunch yet so I was really hungry. YUM, IT HIT THE SPOT. I'll take eight more scoops, please.
We learned some cool facts about ice cream along the way. There were cool signs and awesome wallpaper. It was pretty sweet. (SWEET, GET IT?)
The first room we entered was the Cone Room. A cone expert gave us edible helium-filled balloons. I'm not joking. LISTEN TO HER TALK!
All you do is suck in the helium and eat the sugar. I was a pro at this, it's whatever.
Lydia was a different story. Somebody help this girl.
Seriously, though, I'm great. (I'M ALSO KIDDING, ROAST ME.)
The museum also had art made out of real cones. IT'S EDIBLE. EVERYTHING IS EDIBLE!
Then we met this guy, and he taught us how to scoop ice cream like a bo$$. He said it's about the motion, not how strong you are. TAKE NOTES, KIDS.
After, we got to put our scoop in a giant bowl to help build the biggest ice cream sundae ever. Watch me slam dunk this shit. Nothing but net.
The nice man told us the museum already reached 1,000 scoops, but the goal is to get 30,000 total. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH ICE CREAM THAT IS?!
