As a passionate proponent of everything sweet and frozen, I couldn’t only publish a guide to the bestest ice cream places in the city, but had to join forces with the all female powerhouse that is Sweethearts in Neukölln to throw the daintiest ice cream event of the season: it’s an Ice Cream Party! It’s happening this Sunday from 14:00 in the luscious garden of lovely Sweethearts, and we’ll assemble the finest artists in the field of frozen delights to bring you ice cream in all its delicious varieties: from scoop to sandwich to popsicle. Read on to get your hands on the limited ice cream feast tickets, that will give you all the pleasures at an unbeatable price.
Here’s the gist: Jones Ice Cream, Zwei Dicke Bären, as well as Rocket and Basil (aka Das Brunch) will come together with Sweethearts and bring you super special creations you won’t get anywhere else (or any time before or after our event). Gabrielle Jones created a lavish and elaborate new flavour just for us, vanilla with brownie pieces and salted caramel, that is so indulgent, especially when you choose one of their freshly baked waffle cones. The sandwich masters of Zwei Dicke Bären bring the ice cream version of a Stroopwafel: two flat waffles filled with caramel ice cream and a caramel core, that will make your taste buds explode (and threw my office mates into a frenzy, when there was one left over from the photo shoot). We also invited the team of infamous Das Brunch to create an Iranian inspired popsicle: they decided on a rose water and lime popsicle, created in cooperation with Paletas. These are only their specials, they’ll obviously bring loads more flavors to satisfy all your ice cream cravings. In addition to that, Sweethearts kitchen heroes came up with these sweet delicacies – Hotchoc Bling aka a French Toasted Brioche with candied raspberries, pistachio, salted caramel custard and Femme de Virunga 55% chocolate, or a vegan and gluten free Heart Swells with fried maple bananas, dark chocolate, coconut roasted poppy loaf, preserved sour cherries and pistachio. Get your sugar rush on!
For the real sweet teeth among you, let me suggest you’ll get yourself one of the limited, pre-sale only ice cream feast tickets, that’ll give you one treat of each vendor: a sandwich from Zwei Dicke Bären, a popsicle from Rocket and Basil, two scoops from Jones in a freshly baked waffle, and half a portion (because we’re no monsters either) of one of the special dishes of your choice from Sweethearts. The ticket has a value of over 16 Euros, but we’re giving you a limited number for only 12 Euro (incl tax). You can only buy this ticket online, and there are no refunds. This purchase is managed by SendOwl, only to avoid the additional fees other services add to the price.
No need to buy the ticket to attend the event, though, just come by and get your treats.
