Ice cream weather is finally here, and if you’re in the mood to try something new – we’ve got just the thing for you. Stretchy ice cream is taking Brooklyn by storm thanks to one tiny shop that specializes in this delicious treat.

Republic of Booza is located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, but it’s not exactly your regular ice cream bar. They take pride in selling a very special type of this beloved dessert, made with an ancient technique that has been around for five centuries.

Booza originates in the Eastern Mediterranean, but Republic of Booza is the first shop in the US to embrace this ice cream-making technique. Instead of simply bringing this traditional dessert to the new market, they reinvented it by introducing a series of new authentic flavors.

If you’re wondering what makes this ice cream different from any other, here’s your answer – soft elasticity of this tasty treat makes it smoother, denser, and creamier, allowing it to melt more slowly and pack more flavor per scoop.
