Could you imagine tasting a social network? Two enterprising ice cream makers at Valentino Ice Cream Shop in Tisno, on Croatia’s Murter island, came up with the novel idea. One of the owners, Admir Adil noticed his 15-year-old daughter was incessantly checking Facebook, so it was only appropriate he thought to create a flavor for other fans obsessed with the social media behemoth.
Brothers, Admir and Ibi Adil created their Facebook flavored ice cream by simply mixing blue syrup atop vanilla ice cream and placing a small sign with a Facebook logo on it. Selling a scoop for €1, the ice cream apparently tastes like sugary sweets and chewing gum, but it’s become a hit as many passersby were immediately drawn to Facebook’s trademark logo (as well as the novelty). The duo did admit they hadn’t contacted Mark Zuckerberg for trademark use but would if the company reached out to them.
