To prevent you from Melt-ing…

6 Jul

If you have air-conditioning and good shoes, New York City is wonderful in the summertime. Temperatures flirt with 100˚F (40˚C) and humidity exceeds 50% — so, in an effort to adapt and overcome, I have devised an expert way to find relief: ICE CREAM!

I discovered the friendly guys from Melt Bakery at the Hester Street Fair three years ago, and their delicious ice cream sandwiches and I have been best friends ever since!

The flavors are different every week, but if you’re lucky enough to find it, don’t miss my personal favorite: the Margarita. I can’t remember what type of cookie or ice cream it is, but each bite releases an incredible burst of lemony margarita flavor, offering some respite from the harsh summer heat. Find them at the Hester Street Fair on Saturdays and other locations throughout the city. They also just opened their shop in the Lower East Side!!
