What better way to welcome the onset of summer than to set a new world record with the season’s all-time favourite treat – ice cream!

The UAE has a new entry to its growing list of Guinness World Records after Abu Dhabi Culinary, the culinary section of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), set a new mark for the most varieties of ice cream on display.

The record-breaking event took place at The Ice Cream Lab pop-up at Yas Mall on July 2. Ice Cream Lab and UK’s Pan-n-Ice Ice Cream Rolls came together for a delicious collaboration to promote Summer of Ice Cream and Abu Dhabi Shopping and Dining Season.

Coffee and cookie dough, bubble gum and pistachio, mint Oreo and meringue, matcha and passion fruit, cherry and popping candy were among the 1,001 flavours that took ice cream aficionados on a gourmet voyage.

Ice cream fans can try the unlikely matches for Dh35/Dh40 at The Ice Cream Lab until July 21.

To ensure safety measures are in line and safe experiences, Abu Dhabi Shopping and Dining Season and Summer of Ice Cream are being held under strict health and safety protocols in line with the government of Abu Dhabi.
