Macaron ice cream sandwiches are our new guilty pleasure

Our fixation with the humble ice cream sandwich has not gone unnoticed in recent times. Over the past few summers, it has escalated to extreme new heights that have seen scoops of artisan product wedged between thick, home-baked cookies, topped with candy-floss and the like. And now, there is a newer, more fashionable iteration — one that is, dare we say, much easier to eat. It’s something of an ice cream macaron sandwich and we’ve noticed them being served at new downtown pop-up Melt. Delivering the perfect balance of crunch, chewiness and sweet coolness, these ice cream macarons are now available on our shores and if you’re any kind of dessert connoisseur, we suggest you try one sooner rather than later.
