It finally happened! Our ice cream dreams came true and it was pure bliss. Last weekend we passed through the seven levels of the gummy bear forest, through the sea of twirly swirly rainbows and unicorns and then we took a dip in a sprinkle pool! Just in case you have no clue what we’re talking about it’s The Mueseum of Ice Cream. We’ll give you a little background info first and then take you on a virtual experience. Although we have to admit these pictures will not do it justice.
The Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) was founded by boss babe and ice cream Kween Maryellis Bunn. Her mission behind starting MOIC was to design environments that bring people together and provoke imagination. Lucky for us she nailed her vision! Currently you can find MOIC in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami. Tickets sell out very fast so sign up for their newsletter to stay in the loop!
Upon arriving we were welcomed with smiley faces dressed in pink from head to toe (our fav). You’ll be asked to think of a team name so be ready! We cracked under the pressure (big surprise) and ended up being the Sherbert Bunny’s. It’s cute but if we could rewind we’d choose to be Mochi Gang not to be confused with Gucci gang, Gucci gang, Gucci gang! Anywho our first stop was a carnival themed room with a ring toss game included! We swooned over the pink walls with a twist (take a look below).
Unlike a standard museum, MOIC provides tasty sweet treats throughout the exhibit. The themed 1950’s style diner was scoopin’ up some tasty peach Bellini cream. The room included a jukebox that played all the jams. We might have spent some time dancing (mostly awkward arm movements). We stopped by the dreamiest album wall and we found some of our favorite artists and jams up on this wall. Did you notice the song names have an ice cream twist?
What would you scream for?! Our answer is OHBI of course but we’d also do anything for Selenas. Welcome to an entire room full of magnetic letters and Mochi!
“You’re gonna find us on the cherry clouds. We’re living easy and we won’t come down.” Okay, okay we might have changed the words a little while we were in this exhibit snacking on the delicious glittery cherry cotton candy. Did we mention this room has scented wallpaper?! Bonus points if you can guess the scent! Pssst... it’s cherry.
We found gummy bears in their natural habitat! They’re friendly enough to take pics with but no touching! Our husbands even joined in on the picture taking opportunities. We don’t blame them, we think they look good in front of the lens.
We rode push pops and magical unicorns like we were from the Wild West. We might have been a little extra but how can you not be when you’re in an ice cream room! We stepped inside of a disco ball and became one with pop rocks. There was enough pink and sparkles for a lifetime!
Last but not least we fulfilled all of our ice cream dreams and took a dive into the magical sprinkle pool! There were more sprinkles in that pool than one could imagine. We found our way back to our hotel by following a trail of stray sprinkles that escaped from the museum. We might even still be finding some loose ones that somehow made their way home with us. We’re not complaining though. :) P.S. you’ll notice our husbands have more personality than us combined.
We had the time of our lives and we owe it all to you, MOIC! We hope y’all get lucky and can snag some tickets to visit this magical place. It will make you feel like a kid again, we promise!
