Can You Spot the Smiling Lollipop in This Sea of Cheerful Ice Cream Cones?


It’s no secret that we love a great brainteaser or puzzle around here, especially if it’s a seasonal one. The latest internet puzzle, created by Hungarian artist Gergely Dudás (also known as Dudolf), just might be our favorite game yet. After all, it involves our favorite summer treat of all time — ice cream — and a very well-hidden lollipop.

You might remember that back in December, Dudás shared a cute Christmas puzzle (you can still find the bear among the reindeer if you haven’t solved it yet), but this one is even more adorable. The new puzzle challenges you to spot the single lollipop hiding among the very crowded and tasty-looking group of ice cream cones, and it’s actually a lot harder than it sounds. Don’t be shocked if you find yourself scratching your head for a couple minutes — or feeling hungry all of a sudden.

The clever brainteaser uses a similar color scheme throughout the image for all of the ice cream cones, with just enough variation to make you look twice at every tiny group of treats. It doesn’t help that the background is such a lovely blue color that keeps pulling our focus away from examining the sweets. On top of that, the ice cream scoops are distracting in their own right, thanks to their adorable facial expressions. And we thought finding the marshmallow among the seals in one of Dudás’s other puzzles was tough!

Wow! We never would have thought to look there first (nor would we expect to be searching for a lollipop instead of ice cream at the beginning of summer). There’s nothing like a good brain workout to keep our minds sharp during this relaxing season.

If you enjoyed this puzzle and want to try more challenges like it, you’ll be happy to know that Dudás recently released a Christmas-themed puzzle book, Bear’s Merry Book of Hidden Things: Christmas Seek-and-Find (Amazon, $9.69). He also has an upcoming Halloween-themed puzzle book, Bear’s Spooky Book of Hidden Things: Halloween Seek-and-Find (Amazon, $8.99), which you can pre-order now. Even though those holidays are a bit far away, the festive brainteasers are so fun that we could do them all year long!
