Freeze Junk-food again this year with Ice creams like in Asia, an absolutely devilish sorbet, sugarless ices or super couture creamy popsicles, here are the buzzing frosty treats that are a total must this summer.
The most “diet”
Nubio, the kings of freshly squeezed juices that twigs are wild about had the brilliant idea of freezing their potions to transform them into detox ices such as fennel, beet, pineapple, lemon, ginger or an irresistible almond, date, vanilla, Hiimalaya salt sorbet. Result? A “raw” sorbet —sugarless with no lactose— divinely good, but also draining, slimming and with a thousand virtues. An exploit for Parisiennes on a diet.
Ice Green" by Nubio available on Uber Eats, Maison Plisson - lamaisonplisson.com- and Atelier Nubio 4 rue Paul Bert 75011 Paris. All the info on www.nubio.fr/
The most deluxe “snickers”
Careful, deluxe junkfooderie in sight ! Dalloyau has concocted the most snob of desserts : “Finger Cacahuète Vanille” with a crunchy sablé peanut cookie, vanilla ice cream from Madagascar, vanilla caramel, vanilla and peanut chips wrapped with milk chocolate. You said foodporn?
6,90€ in all the Dalloyau boutiques. All the info and boutiques on dalloyau.fr.
The most Marie-Antoinette
When Ladurée launches an ephemeral boutique for Summer, dedicated to ice cream, it’s necessarily frosty! Claire Hetzler, their “top pastry chef”, imagined Darling Ice, a collection of furiously girly and amazingly delicious frosty pastries.
We like: the Pavlova spirit of Darling Ice Rose Framboise: meringue with a raspberry sorbet and rose ice cream, covered with chantilly strawberry-champagne
For all the chocolate macaroon buffs: a soft biscuit chocolate macaroon garnished with chocolate and caramel ice cream. Yummy !
Exclusively at the Ladurée pop-up store, to stay or to go. 6€ in individual portions.
Ladurée Pop-Up Store 21 rue Bonaparte - 75006 Paris
The most “rock’n’roll”
Do you know rolled ice? This new frosty concept that has taken Asia by storm has finally landed in Paris. The spectacle is taking place live in front of you. The preparation (milk, fresh cream, sugar+ a flavour) spreads out like a crêpe on a cold plaque. Once scraped, it forms rolls.
Chop your own rolls at the ephemeral IceRoll specialist boutique. Cool, pastry chef Monsieur Benjamin also partakes.
Ice Roll - 7 Rue de Turenne, 75004 Paris - 06 37 78 19 87 - iceroll.fr.

The most “forbidden to those under 18”
Careful, only persons over 18 are allowed to lick these sorbets. The reason? They are twisted with alcohol. Real frosty cocktails, to be enjoyed with moderation.
Two options, Lapp sticks (Melon Spritz, Bellini, Mojito Strawberry) and Crespi pots (tequila lemon banana, vodka kiwi, 6€). Cheers.
Crespi, sold at l’Epicerie Générale, and at the Mama Shelter of La Mano.

The most candy
The oldest chocolaterie in Paris, aka A la mère de Famille, is launching wild Esquimaux ice sticks with flavours such as lemon, vineyard peach, raspberry or passion-pear in which one finds small pieces of house fruit jellies.

Abracadabra, your ice cream pops up as though by magic from a heavy cloud of smoke. The tip? Liquid nitrogen instantly freezes matter.
Result, furiously unctuous ice creams that had never been seen until now: cheesecake with honey, tarte tatin, salt butter caramel and pop-corn...
