For a refreshing bite with less guilt, Emkipop has created delicious sorbet treats that will have your sweet tooth jumping for joy without causing too much calorie-guilt.

La Glacerie ice-cream parlour brings you a rainbow of flavours to choose from including a surprisingly creamy vegan caramel ice-cream with candied apricot.

In the traditional Parisian brasserie, chef David Baroche has created quite the unique sundae that is sure to delight both ice-cream and truffle connoisseurs alike. In an elegant coupe, smooth vanilla ice-cream is drizzled with artisanal hazelnut praline caramel sauce and sprinkled with generous shavings of summer truffles, adding a hint of earthiness to the sweetness of the vanilla and praline.

Whipped into an icy delight, Sacré Willy's salted caramel ice-cream is a smooth, creamy treat that will be hard not to scoop up straight from its jar and into your mouth. And the added bonus?
