Ten-Second Takeaway

Be it any time of the year, popsicles are our favourite desserts. They can be au naturel, handmade or even served with a splash of alcohol. Check out our favourite spots in the city that are doing popsicles in new and adventurous ways.

Coast Cafe

The frozen alcoholic popsicles at Coast Cafe in the village have great offerings to beat the heat as well as get a little buzz on. We loved the frozen Mai Tais, with their swish of rum. You can also try the newly introduced cool Cucumber pop with gin and the Watermelon Berry {which sounds mighty enticing if you ask us} with tequila.

The ultimate in popsicles, Frugurpop has redefined the concept of a mere flavoured ice lolly with their handmade gourmet ice creams in fruity flavours. They’re healthy and have some interesting, and good-looking combinations, like the Raspberry-Pomegranate and Frutilicious. They’re bringing in Strawberry Cheesecake and Banana Waffle Nutella, along with a few new sorbet flavours this season too. Is that variety or what?

Cake Away

Nestled in the Safdarjung Market in the building that also houses the Piano Man Jazz Cafe and Dirty Apron sits Cake Away, everyone’s favourite Gurgaon import. Traditional popsicle lovers should definitely try the Lemon Popsicle with Fresh Fruit which is just the kind of refreshment you’d need on a hot summer day. Opt for the Nutella Fudgesicle for when you want something heavier and sweeter.
