Fake sprinkles cost an ice cream-themed museum in South Florida $1,000.
The Museum of Ice Cream was fined by Miami Beach city officials after environmental activists expressed concern that plastic sprinkles were leaving the museum and falling into storm drains.
The museum includes an attraction in which guests can dive into a pool of “sprinkles,” which are actually small pieces of plastic made to resemble the ice cream topping, according to WPLG.
City officials levied a $1,000 fine and have conducted regular inspections to ensure the plastic pieces stay inside the museum.
Mesh has now been placed in nearby drains, and the museum and the city are working together to find further solutions--such as developing biodegradable sprinkles.
The museum is a temporary attraction and plans to close its doors on Jan. 22.
