I Scream you Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream

“I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice cream”.

I absolutely love ice cream. I saw a Facebook Post about a pop-up Ice Cream Museum and I knew I had to get tickets. Unfortunately, when I went to the ice cream website, the tickets were all sold out. I signed up to receive email alerts and several weeks later I received an email alert that additional tickets were going on sale. On Thursday, I quickly logged on but the website page continued to refresh due to a number of people attempting to purchase tickets. Finally, I was able to purchase 3 tickets for myself, mom and a friend. Our tickets were confirmed for Wednesday night at 7:30 pm. The Ice Cream Museum is located at 2018 E 7th Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90021. Ticket prices are $18 (children 3-12 and seniors 60+) $29 for adults (13+).

Upon entrance, they offered guest a small dove chocolate to eat. They also have a mural adorned with sweet treats such as ice cream, donuts, cupcakes, strawberries, cherries, candy canes, flowers, etc.

Payphone Room

The first room is all pink and has old pay phones. Pick up the telephone to hear instructions on how to navigate the museum. The telephone reminds me of pay phones that used to be on every street corner before the use of cell phones. I also have old memories of the old dial up phone that my grandmother used to have in her home.

The next room was set up like a mixture of Venice Beach meets Hollywood.

Ice Cream Stars of Fame Room

They had their version of Hollywood Star of Fame. They used famous stars and added an ice cream theme. For example, they had “Scoop Dog”. They had a replica of the Hollywood sign only it said, “Ice Cream”.

In this room, we received our first scoop of ice cream called Salt and Straw aka salted caramel ice cream. I am not a fan of salty and sweet mixed together so I didn’t enjoy the combination but I know lots of people who love these flavors.

Banana Room

If you love bananas, you will enjoy the swing set and the hundreds of bananas hanging from the ceiling. Swinging on the swings brought up fond memories of going to the park as a child.

Mint Life Room

Mint life is a room where they grow mint leaves in a small garden. You are able to smell and water the leaves. The second treat was mint chocolate trip ice cream wrapped in an edible Japanese paper. I’m not usually a fan of the mint chocolate chip but this was my favorite ice cream of the night.

Check out these retro ice cream shoes. These platform ice cream shoes look groovy. I am not sure if I would actually wear them but I thought they were a delight to look at. Would you rock these shoes?

Popsicle Room.

I love Popsicle’s because it keeps me cool on a hot summer day. These over-sized Popsicle’s made me wish I had one, but they were only for display. My favorite Popsicle is a Big Stick, I enjoy the cherry pineapple flavor. What is your favorite flavored Popsicle?

Gummy Worm Room

In order to have gummy worms from the room attendant, I had to dance or correctly answer gummy worm trivia. I chose to answer a trivia question. Did you know that German entrepreneur Hans Riegel invented the gummy worm in the 1920’s?

Sprinkles Pool

My favorite part of the museum was the sprinkles pool. The pool is filled with plastic sprinkles. Per the rules, you must take off your shoes and no diving allowed. The only down side is I wish had more time in the sprinkles pool.

Last room of the night had several things. It had a cool Neapolitan ice cream sandwich swing. When the ice cream truck would come down the street, I would always order a Neapolitan ice cream sandwich.
