Why swim in water when you can swim in sprinkles? If you don't live near New York City, you might want to book a flight stat because the Museum of Ice Cream — yes, there's a museum for that — will let you live out your deepest dessert fantasies for the low price of $18.

In what might be the healthiest way possible to enjoy sprinkles, you can spend your day backstroking through sugar instead of eating it. Well, kind of: The sprinkles aren't real, but they're real enough for us — can you imagine what would happen if hundreds of sweaty, slobbery people were let loose on a pit of actual sprinkles? Yeah, plastic sprinkles will work just fine. Plus, all that extra friction will take your water aerobics routine to a whole new level of muscle-building madness.

When you're done taking a dip, you can get round two of your Willy Wonka-inspired workout by hitting up the museum's other attractions: the ice cream scooper see-saw and ice cream sandwich swing. Your inner child will clearly be having the best day of its life.

One unfortunate caveat: The museum will only be open from July 29 to August 31 in Manhattan's Meatpacking District, but you can reserve your tickets beforehand to make sure you don't miss out on the fun. And don't worry — after the sweetest workout of your life, you'll obviously get to treat yourself to some real ice cream from the city's finest shops. Dreams really do come true!
