Spaghetti Ice Cream Exists, Looks Like Heaven

    The delightful German novelty dessert is now available in NYC.

    This is Spaghetti-Eis.

    It is ice cream.

    That's made to look like spaghetti.

    It was invented in Germany in the 1960s. Today, it is popular enough there that it's served in lots of different flavors....

    ...and in HUGE portions.

    Spaghetti-Eis is made by pressing vanilla ice cream through a potato ricer to create "noodles."

    Typically, strawberry jam acts as "marinara."

    Coconut flakes or white chocolate stand in for Parmesan.

    It also comes in chocolate.

    As of this week, you can find Spaghetti-Eis at Dolce Gelateria, a frozen treats shop that opened in June in NYC's West Village.

    Dolce Gelatteria serves Spaghetti-Eis with "marinara sauce" (strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry jam) or "vodka sauce" (mango and peach).
