If you don't already have a ticket for the Museum of Ice Cream in New York City, you're out of luck: It's open for one month only and all 30,000 tickets have already sold out. (Don't be so disappointed: According to some reviewers, you'll see enough of the sprinkle pool on social media to feel as if you too have whooshed your feet through the plastic "sprinkles.")
Hey ice cream lovers! This is @madison.utendahl, the Museum of Ice Cream's Director of Social Media, giving you an inside SCOOP as to what's in store. Stay tuned to our Instagram tomorrow as we unveil shots from the museum and introduce you to our founders, Maryellis Bunn and Manish Vora (@manishmas ) Check out our sprinkle pool above 👆🏾👆🏼👆👆🏿👆🏻Can't wait to show you more! 🍦🍦🍦 #museumoficecream #icecream #MOIC
But there's still time this summer to hit the road (or the tarmac) and seek out some of the country's best national food monuments.
Have you been lucky enough to get a tour of "some of the greatest original carbonized culinary artwork in the world" at the Burnt Food Museum in Arlington, Massachusetts? (We'd hope to see a big slice of Burnt Toast on display.) Or maybe you've crossed the National Mustard Museum or the International Vinegar Museum off your list?
We need your help to map these out! Tell us the best food destinations—museums, monuments, pick-your-owns, or anything else worth a trek—in the country in the comments.
Is a pool of plastic sprinkles a let-down or a hygienic godsend? Tell us your thoughts—oh, and your food destination recommendations!—in the comments.
