Do you know how to make your own ice cream? Yea.. neither do I! But there's a spot on the Upper East Side that helps you do it in their own shop! CoolMess is an awesome ice cream hot spot that will let you make your own ice cream right there! Located at 137 East 62nd Street this family owned shop, Burger Heaven has been serving us burgers for over 70 years, and now they have created a spot above their own restaurant for you to complete your sweet tooth cravings.
All you have to do is chose a base flavor, or make your own flavor. They set up the ice cream machine for you and we watch it go! I decided to make two types of ice cream. One chocolate ice cream as my base with Reeces and brownie bites. Then I did a vanilla base with M&Ms, marshmallows and topped it with whip cream and rainbow sprinkles! Seriously yum! I did not think I would finish the whole bowl but guess what.... I did and I have no shame!
The employees of the store were also such a joy to hang out with. The HBIC, Margot, was telling me all about the fun birthday parties and gatherings they do on the weekends. It seems like this place is always popping. They even let me try some of their ice cream flavors that I didn't use in the ice cream making machine. Their Marshmallow flavor was so delicious I almost had another bowl just then!
Then I saw it... the candy wall. Literally every sugar queen's dream come true. There was candy corn, jelly beans, ugh the list went on. I tried it all... again no shame!
If you haven't tried it yet, you have to go to CoolMess! You'll probably see me there in the corner eating bowls and bowls of ice cream...
