UK’s First Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches in London!
These mouth-watering macaron ice creams from Yolkin are one not to miss if you’re walking past Covent Garden. People have gone crazy over these macaron sandwiches and have placed them all on Instagram for the past couple of months or so. A visit to these guys was a must to check how good they really are and yes there totally are worth visiting.
Amazing how rapid there have grown over the past year or so and been successful thanks to social media exposure with likes of Instagram/Facebook/Twitter.
These sure are Instagram-worthy shots, and you’re always surprised by the various flavours each week. You have to make sure you check their Instagram account to keep up to date with their new flavours!
The three of us planned an afternoon out during the bank holiday weekend to visit Yolkin and luckily enough there were no queues as there tend to be a huge when there are some good flavours on offer. When they do have good flavours they tend to sell out pretty fast.
We all bought separate colourful ice cream sandwiches to make them stand out for our photography shots.
What I bought was The Green Milo Ice Cream Sandwich, the top right was the Candy Floss Ice Cream Sandwich very sweet and sour and the bottom was the Melon flavoured Ice Cream.
Overall, I would say Yolkin is a nice spot to visit and check out. If you’re in a nearby city of London or in need of a dessert break. These fancy-looking ice creams are probably the most popular perfect looking ice creams. From my experience and hearing from fellow foodies, there have been long queues to get hold of, especially when they serve really good flavours every other week.
However, luckily on this day, we were not required to queue up as we got served right away with no people lining up. To be honest, I was happy with what I had and captured what I needed for my blog and Instagram too.
What do you guys think of these Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches? Have any of you guys tried them before?
