    Great list! but what about the liquid nitrogen ice creams? There’s this cool hidden away one in Ewha and they give you a syringe full of chocolate 🙂 the Tim Tam flavor is the best!!

    Unfortunately Milky Bee has shutdown. When we tried to find it in May 2016 it had closed down due to the site being redeveloped.

    Hi,
    I was wondering do you guys know ‘Ice Factory’ popsicles? Do you know where can I buy them in Seoul?

    Thanks.

    Milky Bee still exists in Myeongdong. On Google maps it would be at the southeast corner of Myeongdong-gil and Myeongdong 10-gil (to the left of Citibank on the map). At the location there is a Olive Young (ground floor) and No. 1 Steakhouse at the northeast corner.
