As you read the title of this blog post, you are probably thinking why the hell did I write about Gum, shopping centre? What’s so special and epic about this shopping centre that I must spend 3 minutes reading about?
Fair enough. Very good questions. Questions I would be asking myself.
And the answer to your fair question is…..
THE ICE CREAM IS FUCKING AWESOMEEEEEEE.
The story is as follows:
I was walking around the Red Square, and needed to use the bathroom really badly. I saw this building that sort of looks like a shopping mall, and there were a lot of tourists going inside. So I am like hell yea I would get to empty my bladder there. Walked in, saw a lot of tourists, which is totally normal.
What is not normal was this big ass line waiting for this little shop.
By little shop I mean this little cart that contained something. Something that all these people wanted.
And bam! I saw it.
Russian Ice Cream. I bought it, and my gosh. So good. They say Russian ice cream is more creamy than most. I will have to agree. I also find it not as sweet as most ice cream.
I devoured that ice cream in 10 seconds. Probably exaggerating but you get my point.
THIS ONLY COSTED ME 50 RUBLES? that’s less than a dollar!
This is the best moment of my life. In my eating ice cream career that is.
The shopping mall itself was alright. The typical tourist expensive stores. Nothing worth mentioning.
The only thing worth mentioning? The damn ice cream!
I have already gone back twice for the ice cream..and I will be coming back for many more!
