This little corner store in downtown LA is in the big leagues when it comes to crunchy waffle cones, velvety soft serve and one-of-a-kind flavours. With rotating seasonal menus, there’s always something new and delicious to try, but their signature silky black charcoal-infused soft serve is definitely your go-to, with the Nutella-flavoured goodness a constant on the menu. It’s safe to say that it’s as insta-worthy as it is tasty. And not to be forgotten, there’s always at least one vegan option on the menu – #winning.!

1F, 4-26-28 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

The ice cream game is seriously strong at Eddy’s Ice Cream in Tokyo. As well as being super tasty the cotton-candy pink parlour churns out Insta-worthy cones and creamy soft serves accessorised to perfection. Unlike your run of the mill toppings, the selection at Eddy’s is next level – think fondant cat paws, giant lips, unicorns, ribbons, palm trees, cotton candy clouds and so much more. The best part? It’s all completely edible! So get creative and design your own, or pick from the super stylish set menu, either way, you can’t go wrong.

For an ice-cream as glamorous as your inner diva, Hakuichi in Japan is the place to go! Wrapping their deliciously smooth soft serves in a 24Kt edible gold-leaf, it’s almost too bling to eat (almost!). While the edible gold trend has definitely taken off, these guys are some of the OG’s in the business, manufacturing gold everything – think coffee, rice, face masks and lip balm because everything is better when it’s dripping in gold (right?).

What do you get when you combine your fave boozy drink with ice cream? Well, a visit to Tipsy Scoop will clue you in. Combining the best of both worlds, these desert gods create artisanal handmade gelatos infused with your fave liquors so you can quite literally slurp on a cone full of alcoholic ice cream. Think margarita sundaes and rose sorbets, or for a cheeky combination, grab a tasting paddle – just be sure to get a taxi home!

Like ice-cream wizardry, the crafty cats at 10Below in Los Angeles literally whip up your ice-cream from scratch right in front of your eyes, before rolling it into cute little scrolls and topping it with the all good stuff!! The magic is in the cold plate that instantly turns the raw liquid form ice cream into frozen deliciousness, before being combined with fresh ingredients – it’s so good it’ll leave your taste buds wanting more (we guarantee it). Add to that, the fact that you can even get your ice cream wrapped in a crunchy waffle taco – it’s pretty much every ice cream aficionados dream!

44 Bedford St, London, UK

When the Eurythmics sang “sweet dreams are made of these” they were definitely talking about the dreamy ice creams at Milk Train in London (#fact!). Wrapped in a giant cloud of fairy floss and topped with delicious sweets like popcorn, sprinkles, biscuit chunks and popping candy, the ice cream creations here are guaranteed to give you a next level sugar high, as well as some super insta-worthy snaps!

Being the good folks that they are, the girls behind Naked Dough noticed a serious lack of the delicious edible dough in the UK, so they got to work on fixing that by curating a menu of delicious flavours. While this little London beauty isn’t technically ice cream, it’s easily the next best thing, so we’ve popped it on the list regardless. And with over six flavours to choose from, and an endless supply of delicious choc chips, candy, crushed nuts and biscuit chunk toppings – the only decision is one, two or three scoops!

45 Gough St, Central, Hong Kong

The self-professed makers of ‘odd food’ – Oddies in Hong Kong’s central district is a must for the adventurous foodies. While the unique gelato flavour combos like honey gelato mixed with marshmallows, confetti cake crumbs, and cornflake clusters are definitely worth getting excited about, it’s the custard-filled eggette waffles that are the real showstoppers. Instead of your usual waffle, here the batter is squeezed between two plates filled with little semi-spherical cells that create a fluffy waffle with little pockets of goodness for the ultimate taste explosion with every bite!

Loaded freakshakes, decked out sundaes and beyond creamy soft serves – it’s no wonder these guys call themselves Soft Serve Society. Delivering some of the most flippin’ cool flavours and colours you could ever imagine, including their Insta-famous charcoal-infused coconut ice cream (who would’ve thought black ice cream would be so delicious!), the charcoal waffle cone and the iridescent purple taco soft serves, it doesn’t get much tastier or insta-worthy than this! Let’s be real, you’re drooling right now just thinking about it…or is that just us?

If you haven’t heard of Milk and Cream Cereal Bar, do you even ice cream? The answer is simply no, so do yourself a favour guys and put it on the NY bucket list STAT! Whilst ice cream flavours are limited, this super cool ice cream bar crushes your favourite cereals through your ice cream to create the ultimate colourful creation. If a milkshake is more your thing, you can customise it by adding your favourite cereal to the top, or for something very unique, enjoy a bowl of cereal with a big scoop of ice cream. If you’re feeling slightly fancy, take your pick from the list of fresh fruits, nuts, cookies or candy, before finishing off your masterpiece with a drizzle of your favourite syrup, and voilà!
