New York’s Latest Addiction: An Ice Cream Museum

This unique ice cream museum is one of its kind in the world.

The Museum of Ice Cream in New York is the lifelong fantasy of 24-year-old co-founder Maryellis Bunn.

The six-room experience begins with a free scoop of ice cream. In the next room, sugar helium-filled edible balloons produce giggles as the gas changes visitors’ voices into high-pitched squeaks.

The biggest attraction is this large pool filled with 11,000-pounds of faux confetti-coloured sprinkles.

The Chocolate Chamber features a chocolate fountain and an immersive video on chocolate.

Elsewhere, visitors can suck on a dehydrated Miracle Berry that alters sour taste into sweet and then indulge in an ice cream topped with slices of yellow that’s no longer sour.

The show ends in TinderLand, a playground area featuring a see-saw in the shape of an ice cream scoop and an ice cream sandwich-shaped swing for two.

In addition to specially-created ice cream flavours by food scientist Irwin Adam, founder of Future Food Network, the museum each week will offer custom frozen treats from one of the city’s favourite ice cream shops, including Black Tap and Oddfellows. (Inputs: AP)
