Not only does Eyescream and Friends serve delicious ice cream, it is also the most fun ice cream shop in all of Barcelona. It is a new brand of ice cream that was founded in 2012. Eyescream and Friends ‘ice cream’ is a shaved Taiwanese style ice cream made with Italian gelato and tastes like something between a sorbet and ice cream. The combination is unique but also foreign to most people as it comes with different sauces and toppings. Before the ice cream gets served, a pair of eyes is placed on top of them, which makes the appearance of the ice cream fun and colorful.
