Ice cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. You can have it in a cone, a cup with spoon, or on a stick. It comes with varied shapes, forms, flavors and even names across the different countries in the world but has always been popular and loved by people.

The time with ice cream is pure joy. And it still leaves a lot of space for people to create and reinvent. On the other hand, there are some people who are not too keen on ice-cream because they see it as unhealthy, find it a bit messy, or don't buy it as often as they might like to as it melts quickly. Or some people just don't like going to the supermarket aisle where ice cream is sold because it's too cold...

Maybe some innovation can make ice cream even more appealing to people and make the experience even better to enjoy.

Creative Challenge

Your challenge is to wow us with an original and revolutionary idea about the next generation of ice cream that makes people enjoy it better and love it even more!

We are looking for ideas that are beyond innovation on flavors or ingredients. Think about more groundbreaking ideas that change the experience it offers people or the occasion when people would like to have it, with a revolution on the packaging. Start thinking from a more holistic approach rather than small tweaks on the details, like what value or benefits this new ice cream can add to people’s lives, or how it is different from the way we have ice cream now; etc.

Tips from eYeka: (we are not giving the answers but just thought starters so please do not make your work look exactly like our examples)

Start from the experience when you are having an ice cream. Think about what you want to change on that experience, what you want to add and what you don’t want to have. E.g. it could be something like an ice cream that can last longer – with a small cooling device that you can enjoy it for longer without worrying it will melt. Or it can be ice cream that you can design by yourself – you can make you own mould and create your own shape of ice cream.
