Game of Thrones Fans, Behold, An Ice Cream Cone Iron Throne

There’s only a few days left until the long-awaited premiere of Game of Thrones‘ seventh season. Set to air Sunday, the show’s season opener also falls on another sweet occasion: National Ice Cream Day.

If we weren’t hyped enough for the sweet season opener, Blue Bunny created a replica of the infamous Iron Throne completely from ice cream cones. The throne was unveiled in New York City where fans had the chance to eat some free Blue Bunny ice cream and sit down and feel the weight of being the true ruler of Westeros on their soul.

Sounds like a fun morning.

You can check out a time lapse of the construction process in the video above. Game of Thrones returns to HBO on Sunday, July 16.

Foursquare Tries to Lift Us from Game of Thrones Depression with ‘Game of Cones’

Screen Shot 2013-06-06 at 9.44.58 AM

Game of Thrones mourners in San Francisco and New York, brace yourselves. Good news is coming. Foursquare has released a new in-game app called Game of Cones. The concept is simple, but brillant, considering the only way to soothe our grief and cool our rage is ice cream. Obviously. Between June 7th and June 21st, check in at any of the participating ice cream shops in the New York or San Francisco areas with the hashtag #GameOfCones. The shop with the most check-ins (cough House Bi-Rite cough) wins the Iron Cone . . . which appears to be an ice cream cone that will shred the roof of your mouth while you try to enjoy your dessert.

Sounds just like the show, doesn’t it?
