Whether you're taking the "Frankenstorm" seriously or planning hurricane parties (I'm singling you out, New Yorkers), you'll probably need to stock up on a few choice items. Fortunately, we've just discovered something incredible that may make your hunkering down a bit more pleasurable: ice cream.
Now, I know what you're thinking — if I happen to lose power, what good is ice cream? Well, I'll tell you: First, is there any better excuse to eat something delicious than an impeding storm that might cause power outages and spoil the stuff in your fridge? Second, this isn't just any tasty treat — it's a moon-shaped ice cream cake created by British design agency Doshi Levien for Häagen-Dazs.
Here's more information on these delectable spheres, courtesy of Dezeen:
Each Ice Moon is pitted with smooth craters. Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien say they were inspired by Georges Méliès' 1902 silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune, Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian's relief work of 1929, a childhood Bollywood song and the near-spherical shapes of early ice cream bombes. "The moon idea came from many different places and has elements of fantasy, adventure and imagination," they say.
If these sweet confections aren't available in your area yet or if buying ice cream for a super storm is a little too impractical for you, be sure to look for them in the future. I just drooled on my desk.
