I scream, you scream… we’ll all go kicking and screaming for ice cream with the Kickball Ice Cream Maker.

Simply fill the ball with the necessary ice cream ingredients, along with ice and rock salt, close the top and get kickin’.

Twenty minutes of ball-play will yield a pint of ice cream. Then feel free to play another ten games of kickball to help burn off the ball-full of ice cream you just consumed.

Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches Exist

At the time of this writing, and with the exception of the impenetrable cupcake, there are no hotter food trends than macarons and ice cream sandwiches.

So, with the news that there’s now such a thing as Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches, the food world could very well implode in on itself… leaving nothing but cupcakes.

This food trend mash-up is the work of Chef François Payard. Presented in three varieties – Salted Caramel, Coconut Mango, and Pistachio Raspberry – they’re only available at François Payard’s Bakery and FP Patisserie in New York City until the end of August.

Unsuspecting moviegoers in London were given an enlightening treat while watching The World’s End.

Bakers/candy artists/mad scientists Bompas & Parr had gotten to the viewers’ Cornetto cones beforehand and made them glow.

Obviously not a finicky bunch and up for anything, the moviegoers dove in, creating a veritable light show throughout the theater and on their tongues.

Ice Cream That Changes Color When You Lick It

color-changing-ice-cream

Just when you thought that vanilla ice cream couldn’t get any more boring, there’s now an ice cream that changes color. Xamaleón, by Spain-based ice cream shop IceXperience, will switch hues as you eat it.

Tutti-Frutti in flavor, the all-natural ice cream starts out purple, but will switch to several shades of pink as it changes temperature. It’s like those hyper color shirts from the 80s — only with smaller hair and less-sucky music.

Check out the mood ice cream in action. But a warning… watching ice cream change color is the new “watching paint dry.”
