Did you already hear of the Musem of Ice Cream?
After its big success in New York, it has recently opened in Los Angeles and the internet is again full of pictures from it. With 12 different rooms, featuring things like a wall of bananas, a huge popsicle installation and pink palms, it is a dream come true for every ice cream lover. The highlight is clearly the sprinkle pool that seemingly every celebrity and influencer has already dived in. As the tickets are almost always sold out, you might check out the fun from afar through their Instagram account.
But the Musem of Ice Cream is not the first one to use the power of social media. Nowadays everything has to be “instagrammable” and look nice online to make people buy it. Following this rule, this brand has increased its profit 50% after changing its packaging to a more millenial look.
Ice cream is also a beautiful mannequin when it comes to editorial photography as the magazine Kinfolk proved in one of their issues.
Now, this article wouldn't be complete without a list of great ice cream places in Lisbon, so here we go:
A small shop in Bairro Alto became a social media star last year, when everyone seemed to be hooked by the traditional popsicles. #sofrutaemainada
I think you don't need an Austrian to tell you about this one.
A must on this list, no more words needed.
For those who want to try new flavors like figs and portwine or lemon with rosemary and honey, visit this lovely shop in Alfama.
What it lacks in the design of the shop, it makes up for in taste. Really close to our office, this one is “wingman-approved”!
