Macaron Ice cream Sandwiches from Yolkin

This post is essentially a public service announcement: there’s a street pop up in London serving up macaron ice cream sandwiches. It’s an exciting discovery that I simply felt compelled to share with my fellow sugar junkies in London.

Yolkin’s concept is simple but genius, making use of whole (organic) eggs. The egg whites go into the macarons, while the yolks are used to whip up delicious ice creams, in inventive flavours that change on a weekly basis. This week’s line up featured the following mouthwatering selection:

We went for the Banoffee Pie & Eton Mess – a scrummy and cool explosion of flavours, against a chewy macaron base. The oaty crumbs sprinkled generously on top of the banoffee pie sandwich added a lovely crunch, as did the little bites of meringue with the Eton Mess!

Yolkin does not have a dedicated shop, instead moving from location to location and updating their address as and when this happens. So for more deets on how to get your hands on these wondrous creations, check out their website, here.

And finally, a parting piece of advice from one foodie to another, do go early as they often sell out, quite soon in!

  1. Ahhhh – I love these!!! They’re so hard to eat but SO worth it (and so Instagrammable). I think I had the Eton Mess last time, which I loved, but the Banoffee Pie sounds so good! I can’t wait to go back when the weather’s a tad bit warmer 🙂

  2. Yum! These look amazing and the presentation is impeccable. I always wonder how anyone can make something this perfect. Would love to try this but it’s a long way from Sydney. I am hoping to get to London for next year’s bloggers bash and seeing these scrumptious eats, is really trying my patience.
