Buying and eating ice cream will provide you with various meal powers depending on the type of ice cream that you get. In the example above, eating Mango Ice Cream will increase the likelihood of finding small, Normal-type Pokémon in the wild, increase the raid items dropped by Dragon-type Raids, and make catching attempts of Electric-type Pokémon more successful.
