Ramen Ice Cream Exists

ramen-ice-cream

Instant ramen… It satiates broke co-eds, makes for a great mid-western State, and is now an ice cream.

Nissin Foods, makers of the infamous Cup Noodle, is now serving Ramen Ice Cream at their Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama, Japan.

The frozen treat is presented in their iconic styrofoam cup and, instead of boring rainbow sprinkles and gummy bears — the ice cream can be topped with freeze-dried shrimp, beef cubes, green onions, and egg. Yum!

Ice Cream Mosaics Are A Great Way To Decorate Potholes

As long as we’re still using streets, there will be tire-destroying potholes. Too bad, the means still used to fix large holes in the street results in unattractive patchworks.

Treats in the Streets is a fun project by Chicago-based mosaic artist, Jim Bachor. He pretties-up these unfortunate-looking road-fixes by installing ice cream-themed mosaics in them.

Most of the works can be found throughout Chicago. Check out Bachor’s Instagram to help keep track of the exact location of the ice cream mosaics. Just look out for potholes that don’t have ice cream in them.
