Museum of Ice Cream
If you've been following the blog for a while then you know that I have the biggest sweet tooth. Seriously, I can eat an entire tub of ice cream or batch of cookies and not even feel phased. When I was little I would put sprinkles on EVERYTHING, literally everything. I wouldn't eat a banana unless it was covered in sprinkles and I would pour buckets of sprinkles on my ice cream sundaes. So when I heard about the Museum of Ice Cream opening in LA with a SWIMMING POOL (!!!) of sprinkles, I knew I needed to book a ticket! But of course it sold out in minutes, so I didn't check back thinking I would never have a chance to go and live out my childhood dream of swimming in a pool of sprinkles. Well enter in my fellow Ice Cream lover/Sweet Tooth bff, Georgiana. She somehow managed to get us tickets right after my wedding (will be posting on that later!) so we could go with our friends Ann and Julie and let me tell you, it was an Instagram/Sweet Tooth fantasy land and it could not have been a more perfect afternoon spent on a scorching LA day.
Each room is broken down into art installations about various flavors of ice cream and toppings for you to taste test or snap very insta worthy photos to show your friends! One thing that was missing (at least for me) was more information on the "history" of ice cream with some factual information, but I was still fine to just stroll around snacking on my many ice cream samples and take tons of pictures. I loved the pink and yellow banana room, but by far my favorite room was the swimming pool of sprinkles. Literally my four year old dream was to swim in a pool of sprinkles and I couldn't believe I got the chance! Its filled with nearly one hundred million sprinkles for you to swim or lounge in and was better than I ever imagined. I couldn't stop smiling. I literally lounged in a floaty and was living my best life. Couldn't have been happier!
You get ice cream throughout the whole tour, but my favorite was the pink ice cream we ended on. I could have had like twelve cones. They were amazing. Currently you can visit the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles and San Francisco, but more locations will be opening soon! Book your tickets here. If they are SOLD OUT, subscribe to their email list and they will let you know when more tickets become available!
