Everyone's Going Ice Mad Over These Frozen Éclairs in London

Move over Magnums and ice cream sandwiches, a new frozen treat has arrived in London town to cool you down, and it’s fabulous.

If you live in, or have recently visited the British capital you know one thing: it’s been unusually hot. Too hot. In an effort to cool you all down, the marvellous Savoy hotel has launched the icéclair, a moorish little treat they’re dishing out from their glitzy coffee shop, Melba.

What on earth is it, and does it have anything to do with the Cronut? It’s basically a cross between an ice cream and an éclair – so yes, like the Cronut it does have that hybrid aspect to it, but guess what? It’s even better!

Made by encasing a variety of flavoured ice creams (Sicilian pistachio, salted caramel, wild berry – sounds lush, no?) in light choux pastry shells, these gluttonous beasts are then smothered in sauces so tasty they will destroy your tastebuds. And yes, a milk or dark chocolate glaze is involved.

Toppings? Plenty of sugary delights: popping candy, cookie dough and candy floss.

Overall thoughts: out of this world.

You can pick up your very own icéclair from The Savoy, Strand, London, WC2R 0EU.

In London? You can now play with micro pigs at this cute little pop-up in Merchant Square!
