My little duck,

If you are following me on Instagram, you couldn’t have missed the crazy amount of ice cream I ate this summer. Yes, BUT, it was for science the blog. Well, this summer I worked hard to find the best ice cream in New York and you know what? I loved it (my butt not as much, though!) Anyway, wanna feel summer a little bit longer and find out about the best ice cream in The City? Follow me, c’est par ici!


The most vegan friendly:

The most famous:

Cereal milk & fruit céréal milk

To try… or not! It happens sometimes with famous places (hey, Shake Schack!) but I don’t get why everybody is so crazy about it: it tasted like (not so fresh) milk and they only had 2 flavors to choose from. Also, the thing started melting like crazy even before we stepped out of the place.

Le plus trendiest:

To try for: their now famous “coconut ash”, a form of activated charcoal that somehow became very hype these past months (you should see the line sometimes!!) The taste is subtle and delicate, the color is super nice and it’s Instagram material! Loved it (especially the Butter Pecan one, I must admit!)

  1. ohhhh punaise et dire que j’etais a New York il y a 2 semaines de cela et je n”ai meme pas goute a une seule glace grrrrr mais elles sont enormes la derniere c’est vrai qu’elle donne envie sans parler du gout qui doit etre a tomber
    grosse bise

  2. Certaines recettes ont l’air démentes et je dois dire que si je n’aime pas trop les sorbets et les glaces à la française, les glaces à la crème américaines me plaisent déjà beaucoup plus ^^ oh tu as été déçue par Shake Shak? c’est vrai que ça reste un fast food et non un restaurant de burgers gastronomiques, il ne faut pas en attendre trop, mais je trouve ça quand même plus sympa que mac do ou même le sacro saint burger king 😀

  3. Alors là…tu tombes à pic !! je pars à NY trés prochainement (j’ai hâte!!!!) je garde l’adresse Eggloo à East village, c’est la glace qui m’a fait craquer ; merci pour le partage de tes précieuses info !!
