A Los Angeles emissary has landed in New York City on the first official day of summer — in the form of photogenic ice cream sandwiches made with macarons.
MILK, the cult-favorite ice cream parlor from the City of Sunshine, is opening its first city pop-up shop for four days at noon Wednesday in Nolita.
The dessert purveyor will be selling ice cream scoops — in flavors from traditional vanilla to exotic mango chili ($4 a scoop) — to promote its new line of takeaway pints imminently available for nationwide shipping. But it's also serving the brand's iconic, colorful ice cream sandwiches ($6).
The size of an average Chipwich, the sweets come with ice cream nestled between two jumbo macarons. The full list of 13 flavors includes strawberry, cookies & cream, salty caramel and blueberry crumble. Some of the more decadent options are rolled in toppings like chocolate and your favorite Technicolor cereal, Fruity Pebbles.
MILK's pop-up at 52 Kenmare St. will serve customers noon to midnight through Sunday, June 25.
