An All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival Is Hitting NYC This Weekend

by Stephanie Maida · May 31, 2018

    How glad are you that the Super Bowl is behind us? We mean, all those tight ends are great (wink wink), but the snacks are totally lame - chips and dip? Football shaped cookies? Blah.

    When it comes to the Scooper Bowl, however, the eats are quite literally the main event. And let's just say it's sweeter than any football game we've ever been to.

    This weekend, Bryant Park will be playing host to the second annual Scooper Bowl, an all-you-can-eat ice cream extravaganza featuring some of the biggest names in the chill treats game.

    From June 1st to June 3rd, favorites including Ben & Jerry's, Van Leeuwen, and Breyers will be serving up (well, scooping up) nine TONS of ice cream. Haagen-Dazs will also be debuting exclusive new flavors. The best part? All that eating will be totally guilt-free! No, we don't mean calorie-wise (unfortunately), but proceeds from the event benefit the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.

    Tickets are on sale for just $25 - which is definitely worth it if you'd rather take your typical ice cream binge outside your bedroom for once.
