Ice cream, an icy snack that contains history and culture, has brightened up numerous classic moments since hundreds of years ago. Carrying people’s memories and stories, ice cream becomes alive because of the feelings it owns that move everyone.
Through The Ice Cream Map, we hope to connect these ice creams together, collecting fifty European ice cream shops that not only own a tasty ice cream but also have a touching story, culture, and spirit. Recorded through words, sound and pictures, this project will become a guidebook for ice cream lovers to visit these shops. It is a great adventure not just for taste buds, but more importantly, for soul！
Build The Ice Cream map Together!
In your childhood memory, is there any ice cream shop that once brought you happiness and sweetness? Is there any exclusive flavor of ice cream that you cannot forget, desperately wanting to share to everyone? Please tell us!! We need your help to finish this big task!
There are many ice cream shops in Europe that we don’t know yet. It would be a great honor if you recommend some stops that you like or you know. The ice creams shops you recommend are very likely to be included in The Ice Cream Map! Let us finish the ice cream map together and share the sweetness!
Apart from helping us discover the ice cream shops, you can also join “I Scream For Ice Cream” Campaign, marking your favorite ice cream on the map!
Are you a super fan of ice cream? Do you want to show the whole world the most attracting ice cream shop? We invite you to join “I Scream for Ice Cream”!
Once you join us, you are the “hero” who is given a grand mission: to recommend and introduce the ice cream shop you think that is a must-visit!! Ice Cream Hero is a leader of ice cream culture, having an exclusive and creative perspective toward this special snack! Of course, a big stomach is needed! Come and join us!
What should an Ice Cream Hero do? 1.Have an ice cream gathering to share the most impressive ice cream memory. Invite people no matter they are friends, family members, couples or the elders to share everything related to ice cream. 2. Recommend at most five ice cream shops in your country. They should have an impressive story, spirit or special flavours. Contact with them in advance and visit with Michael! Reminder: 1. The Ice Cream Map would not include all the ice cream shops that Ice Cream Heroes provide. 2. If a shop is being recommended twice, we will decide who recommend it according to the register order. 3. Ice Cream Hero voluntarily helps The Ice Cream Map to become abundant. No monetary issue is involved. Thank you for your support and help!

Two parts are included in the booklet of The Ice Cream Map. First part records the journey. We will have a complete document of the ice cream shops that we have visited, including their characteristics, cultures, stories, and special flavor. The contents will also be recorded down through blog during the journey. After the trip is over in July, the information would be edited, and published.
Second part of the booklet is a real map of ice cream. All the locations of the ice cream shops that we have visited will be printed on it. Beside each shop, there is a blank for you to paste ice cream sticker when you visit that shop. Prizes will be given to the ones who have visited all the ice cream shops on the map!
The ice cream trip will end in July,2014. Eight months are expected to finish The Ice Cream Map booklet, including editing, publishing and shipping. The expected time for you to receive the booklet is May, 2015. Please follow us on our website and Facebook page. More information would be released!!
