  • Ben and Jerry's are serving up bagel ice cream sandwiches in Soho

    Yes we know the best of the Summer may well be behind us, but we're still up for as much ice cream as we can handle (i.e. a lot). And as such, we quite love the idea of the latest Ben and Jerry's creation - the Ice Ice Bagel. Yes indeed, that's a bagel ice-cream sandwich (made with Scotland's Bross Bagels). 

    There are two on offer - and they are:

  • Blondies Kitchen are popping up in Carnaby with soft serve milk ice cream and cookies

    To us, very little says summer more than soft-serve ice cream (or just "soft ice cream" as we used to know it). So we're very much looking forward to the next pop-up from Blondies Kitchen, which takes their usual milk and cookies offering to the next level. 

    They'll be serving up the soft serve ice cream - made with Jersey milk and Guernsey cream - combined with a cookie topping (and their

  • avogelato

    So this is rather cute. In an attempt - successful we'd say - to up the ice-cream game as we hit summer, Selfridges have introduced this crazily Insta-friendly dessert in their Food Hall.

    Available from the Snowflake gelato counter, the Avolato is made from 60% hass avocado, served in the avocado skin, with an editlbe nut butter stone. It's vegan, dairy and gluten-free and looks freakishly like an actual avocado. Fancy it? It'll set you back
