With so many yummy food vendors at Panorama Music Festival to steal the show this weekend (July 28th-30th), we’d buy a ticket just to try everything!

Sam’s Fried Ice Cream/ @explorechinatown
Since 2011, Sam’s has been drawing crowds for the unique combination and of course, their insanely tasty ice cream. Usually at a stand in Chinatown, but now coming straight to your crowd on Randall’s Island, Friday through Sunday! This is the perfect festival food to keep you stay cool without getting super messy. PRO TIP: The fried crust can keep your ice cream safe and contained while you flail around to your favorite songs! You’re welcome, you crazy kids!
It’s not hard to figure out why this ice cream shop was deemed “wildly inventive” by the New York Times, with new takes on everything from ice cream sandwiches (the literal definition- ice cream in a brioche bun) to cotton candy cones. You’re already listening to the best music, why not top it off with the best snack?

This Lower East Side shop prides itself on its experimental flavors and handcrafted ice cream, where there is no such thing as a boring flavor. With a wide range of praise to choose from, we think Gothamist puts it best: “These guys make vanilla seem like the most interesting flavor on the planet.” Nuff said.
Known as one of the most Instagrammable desserts of the summer, you’ve probably seen pictures like this one floating around your trendy friend’s social media. Don’t be skeptical and self-conscious to try something so popular around those free spirits at the festival, the hype is very much deserved.
Be sure to try these sweet treats to keep your energy up and enjoy!
Aaaand if you’re bummed about missing Panorama this weekend, treat yourself to one of our faves, La NewYorkina, delivered straight to your door. See, staying home has its perks too!
