Have you ever wondered what it feels like to dip your feet into a pool of 100 million brilliantly colorful plastic sprinkles that look good enough to eat? Neither have we…but now it’s a pronto must-do because everybody’s favorite summer cool-down go-to just got real.
While there’s no Oompa Loompa running around terrorizing children, the Museum of Ice Cream creator, Maryellis Bunn, makes sure the traveling exhibit of interactive tasting experiences features edible creamy treats from delicious names like McConnell’s and DOVE® Chocolate and dot your journey through this fantastical optical extravaganza of frozen dairy heaven. MOIC even has mochi for all our snottier friends who like their ice cream ekthra fanthy.

Banana sp… forget it. If you’re lactose intolerant, you might want to skip it. You won’t be able to control yourself and we’re pretty sure you’ll regret that.
