It’s getting harder and harder to pull off a good prank on April Fools' Day. People’s senses are finely tuned for shenanigans, so it takes a special type of trickster to succeed. Good thing we’re here to help! We’ve learned a thing or two in our years of churning ice cream, and we’re happy to pass these harmless pranks on to you.
1. The Leaky Pint
Take a pin and poke some holes in the bottom of your friend’s pint. They won’t notice anything as long as the ice cream is frozen, but watch out as soon as it starts to warm up!
2. Flavour Swap
Take two pints that are close enough to pass the eye test and swap them out. So, fill Phish Food with Chocolate Fudge Brownie and vice versa. See how long it takes them to notice the switch.
3. The De-Chunkifier
Take your friend’s favorite pint and let it sit out until it’s completely melted. Use a fork to remove the chunks, re-freeze the pint, and see how long it takes them to notice something’s different.
4. Mayo Swirls
Mayonnaise and marshmallow swirls sure look similar. We’re not saying you should do anything with this information, but we’re not saying you should leave your roommate’s Phish Food alone, either.
6. The Impossible Pint
You can’t eat ice cream if you can’t open the top. Put some super strong glue around the lid of your friends’ pints and watch as they struggle to open them up.
We can’t guarantee your friends will fall for all of these, but you won’t know what you can accomplish if you don’t try! Are there any other ice cream pranks you’ve pulled off? We’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
