This interactive ice cream exhibition in London explores the past and present of everyone’s favorite dessert

Eating an ice cream can be an immersive experience in of itself. The yummy flavors, the creamy consistency and the frosty temperature all contribute to making ice creams the ultimate dessert. But where most people see perfection, culinary duo Bompas and Parr saw an opportunity to make ice creams even more exciting by launching an exhibition in London called Scoop.

What can you look forward to at an ice cream exhibition? Plenty! A fountain of sprinkles, glow-in-the-dark ice cream, a futuristic ice cream shop and even a sub-zero ice chamber. The incredible ice cream exhibition will also feature a curated segment of the world’s largest collection of ice cream paraphernalia, owned by Robin and Caroline Weir. Other installations and displays will explore the origins and history of ice cream in its various forms.

Our favorite pat? Of course, it has to be the fact that you’ll get to taste a wide variety of ice cream flavors ranging from ubiquitous vanilla to obscure daffodil, what could be better? Several of the ice creams on offer will be inspired by historically popular flavors like cucumber and candied fruit. The exhibition runs until the 30th of September at the British Museum of Food. Tickets are £12.
