Summer 2017 in London is HOT HOT HOT!! So how do you deal with the heat? Hunt down any ice cream going of course!!
This is where the Pierre Marcolini pop up ice cream shop comes in! I was invited to check out their make your own ice cream lollies as part of the Love Popups London* group (check them out online and on Facebook).
Popping up all Summer on Marylebone High Street
Look what’s popped up on Marylebone High Street!
As well as the ice cream lollies there are tubs of ice cream to buy for immediate consumption and you can also take larger tubs home – if you can wait that long!
Basically how it works is that you choose your ice cream lolly flavour: Raspberry, Chocolate, Slightly Salted Caramel, Mango from Brazil, Vanilla or Seasame White Chocolate (hmmm intriguing!!), then choose your topping/coating:
The coatings were dark chocolate with cocoa nibs, smokey dark chocolate, milk chocolate with toasted hazelnut, milk chocolate with almond, white chocolate with toasted coconut or white chocolate with toasted sesame…. again the sesame intrigues me, but not enough to forgo dark chocolate!
Here’s me trying it out for myself:
I tried the Brazilian mango sorbet covered by the smokey dark chocolate, and my it was good! I loved the mango sorbet – so fresh and juicy and the perfect foil to the slightly smokey flavours of the dark chocolate. This was subtle but sublime, a definite treat you do NOT give the kids!
Pierre Marcolini Summer range – Les Reves de Pierre:
The summer chocolate range (and a vast carousel of macarons) greet you inside the shop. Everything is so pretty and delightful, the flavours perfect for Summer and the packing fantastic for gifts or for treating yourself! The chocolate flavours link in with the ice cream flavours and textures, some truly innovative chocolates. I particularly liked the passion fruit caramel – a combination I would never have thought to try before!
