Oh McDonald's, how we love you.

Our teeth, however, are less fond espesh when you put two eggs-traordinarily delicious desserts on  the menu.

The folk at Maccy D's are bringing us joy in the form of the – the Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry and the Cadbury Caramel McFlurry – just in time for Easter.

They will be available from March 20, but they are only here for limited time only – so get cracking!

They’re only in restaurants for six weeks so egg-cited customers had better move fast before they fly the coop.

It seems that people are excited for these delicious treats.

One said, ''Guys!! The Cadbury Creme Egg Mcflurry is back and I little just cried happy tears!!''

While another wrote, ''My favourite time of the year is now: Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry time.'' 

Get them while they're in all good McDonald's near you.

We can hardly contain our excitement.

What's better than  a Kinder Bueno?

You guessed it, a Kinder Bueno ICE-CREAM.

Well, it has landed in Ireland and can be bought in shops around the country. 

Kinder is launching five different types of ice cream – you can have Kinder Joy ice cream, Kinder ice cream stick, kinder ice cream sandwich, Kinder Bueno ice cream cone, and Kinder Bueno ice cream bar.

We're legit drooling at the mouth here.

BUT THERE'S MORE – you can enjoy the iconic egg-shaped Kinder Joy but in ice cream form with milk and chocolate ice cream in a scooping cup – as well as an exciting surprise.

Then you can have the Kinder ice cream stick, which combines milk ice cream with fresh whole milk, covered with milk chocolate, either individually or in a 10-piece multipack.

De-lish.

If you're not feeling the stick, it also comes as an ice cream sandwich in individual as well as six piece packs for the whole fam. 

The Kinder Bueno hazelnut bar is also available as a cone with milk chocolate sauce, a crunchy cone, topped with hazelnut cream made of Ferrero hazelnuts and choc bits.

I mean, come ON. 

We're planning on gorging on these gorge ice-cream snacks until they make us feel sick, wbu?

It's the day of Barry White and overpriced roses…Happy Valentines Day ya'll.

And if anyone's thinking of having a seductive night in with your other half (or better yet, yourself) then we have good news for you.

Deliveroo is teaming up with Scoop on Aungier Street to create a limited edition Valentine’s Day aphrodisiac ice -cream.

Yes, you read that right: aphrodisiac.

This flavoursome, libido-enhancing ice-cream is aptly name ‘Ice Scream’ and is available from exclusively from the Deliveroo app or website for one day only on February 14.

SO GET ORDERIN' LADS.

Oysters are notoriously famous for getting us in the mood *wink wink* and were made famous by Casanova, the 18th-century lover, who used to devour 50 oysters for breakfast a day.

Oysters and champagne have been traditionally associated with having aphrodisiac properties, so whether it’s for love or lust – this ice cream is much to be desired.

Bobby Burns at Deliveroo said, “This Valentine’s Day, we intend to play Cupid for those looking to embrace the holiday of love to the fullest extent.

He continued, ''We’re very happy to work with Scoop, who share our passion for pushing boundaries with innovative and delicious treats.''

So what are you waiting for?

We know what we'll be stocking up on tonight – happy day of romance one and all.

They say there is no such thing as a free lunch but there will definitely be free ice cream in Dublin this weekend!

For the fans of the classic ice cream and those in need of a fun daytime dating experience, HB will open an Iceberger Bar.

A retro airstream van will be stopping off at Dublin’s Barnardos Square, Dame Street this Saturday, 21st July from 12pm-4pm, giving away free Iceberger inspired desserts, including Iceberger milkshakes and the newly invented Do-Berger – a delicious infusion of a donut and the classic Iceberger. 

We might just start queueing now… 

The launch of the HB Iceberger Bar coincides with new research by HB which reveals insights on Ireland’s dating scene. Results show that 45% of Irish singletons go on dates every other week and 60% of Irish people will go on 2-3 dates before deciding if they like their new partner.

While Irish people still rate food and drinks as their number one date, day dates are on the rise with 76% of Irish daters going on one in the past 12 months. The HB Iceberger Bar offers the perfect solution for those looking for something sweet to do during those long, hot summer dates!

Don't think for a minute that we are going to complain about this heatwave. 

The weather is absolutely glorious, we get to wear all the summer clothes we usually only get to put on during our summer holidays (away from Ireland it is) and we are actually starting to get a tan (a real one).

While a cold beer is definitely our beverage of choice at the moment, food wise, all we really want to eat is a tasty ice pop. Good thing is, they are super easy to make, and if you don't go crazy on the sugar, they are usually quite healthy!

Try some of the recipes below, they will make for a delicious frozen snack!

1. Mexican ice pops

2. Blackberry cheesecake popsicles

3. Kiwi lime ice pops

4. Fresh fruit ice pops

5. Golden milk popsicles

6. Banana chocolate ice pops

An Irish ice-cream shop has officially crossed the boundary between dinner and dessert. 

Gelati, which has shops in Ballina and Eniscrone, has created a ketchup flavoured ice-cream. 

Yes, you heard us right, tomato ketchup flavoured ice-cream. 

And they're not just doing it for the craic, the saucy treat is in honour of Ed Sheeran's current tour around our fair isle. 

It's a well known fact that Ed is absolutely obsessed with Heinz ketchup, even going so far as to have the label tattooed on his arm. 

Now that's dedication. 

"We at Gelati Ice Cream decided to welcome Ed Sheeran back to Ireland by creating his favourite flavour: Tomato ketchup!" they wrote on their Instagram

The also announced that they would be giving away free ketchup ice-cream cones to all concert goers. Pure madness. 

Speaking to People, Gelati owner Micheal O'Dowd said that he hoped that the Galway Girl singer will stop for a taste! 

“It took a few attempts to balance the recipe,” O’Dowd said. “Otherwise it would melt straight away.”

Known for their artisanal gelato, added the ketchup dessert to their range of award-winning treats like Pistachio and Gin and Tonic. 

We'll take five please!

It may not really feel like it, but summer is pretty ,much here (please ignore the violent wind and rain happening outside!)

Well, can we just pretend really hard that the sun is shining – purely because we want ice cream. 

And we're not talking about your casual 99, no no, we're talking about the new Baileys ice cream sandwiches. 

Yep, we're dead serious. 

Baileys ice cream sandwiches are a thing and we really want one

Try and imagine a glorious iceberger – two lovely soft biscuits with delicious ice cream in the middle. 

NOW, add the delicious flavour of Baileys, and BAM… the perfect treat. 

There is ONE (very large) catch though… isn't there always?

Basically, these frozen babies are currently ony available in Australia – nightmare. 

HOWEVER, it would make logical sense that these treats would make their way to us sooner rather than later. 

It is an Irish brand after all. 

Until then, we'll stick to drinking the stuff.

The sun is out, and after such an endless winter, it would be a crime to stay indoors and not enjoy the gorgeous weather. 

And what would make us happier then a few cold cans on the canal? Nothing, but ice cream is good too. 

This delicious recipe is easy to make and you'll bloody love them.

Seriously, you'll end up eating them all. 

Ice-cream sandwiches

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 100g sugar
  • 200g butter, at room temperature
  • 300g flour

For the filling

  • 500ml vanilla ice cream (or any flavour of your choice)
  • Optional: sugar sprinkles or mini chocolate chips, to decorate

Method

1. Heat oven to 180°C. Prepare two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add the flour and continue to mix until the mixture turns into a soft dough. Using your hands, press the dough together to form a ball.

3. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough about 4 to 5 mm thick on a floured surface. Using a small round cookie cutter, cut into discs and place on prepared baking sheets.

4. Bake for 16-18 minutes then let cool completely.

5. Place a scoop of ice cream on one cookie, then place another cookie on top and press slightly. You can dip the sandwich in sugar sprinkles or mini chocolate chips if desired. Freeze until ready to serve.

We just LOVE a good food trend on Instagram – from rainbow bagels to bubble waffles.

We're always always always on the hunt for new and delicious Internet offerings, and we have struck gold. 

We were recently scrolling through one of our favourite Insta accounts @EatMeNYC when we saw it – the bunny cone. 

Easter is around the corner, and to be honest, as much as we want all the eggs, our hearts are craving these gorgeous bunny cones.

A post shared by NYCmouth – JacksonLee (@nycmouth) on

Created by New York based ice cream shop, Taiyaki NYC, these bunny cones are the sweetest treats on Insta right now. 

They're made with your choice of waffle cone, any flavour of whipped ice cream and a delightful set of bunny ears (which are edible, btw).

Top that all off with pastel coloured sprinkles and some sweets on a stick, and you may just have the most perfect cone ever. 

Taiyaki has become pretty famous as an ice cream destination, due to their many creative cones, such as their unicone – yes, inspired by unicorns. 

Actually, at Christmas they created the most adorable Christmas tree cone, that even had a little star on top. 

WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT?

So we have Internet technology, we can fly all over the world and people have been to space. 

How much more advanced could we possibly get?

WELL, scientists are currently working on creating an ice cream that won't melt. Yes. We know. 

How though?

According to the gorge humans over at Bustle, The American Chemical Society revealed that it's been formulating ice cream that uses cellulose extracted from the stems of banana plants, which are normally thrown discarded after the bananas are cultivated. 

And then what happens?

These tiny little fibres taken from the banana plant are put in small portions of ice cream.  

Apparently, the scientists found promising results, in that the banana-fibre ice creams melted far more slowly than ordinary ones, and they were also more resistant to temperature fluctuations.

Welcome to the fu*king future, ladies.

Important point: no, the ice cream did not have any sort of banana taste (which is a shame in my humble opinion). 

Not only is this excellent news for us a species, but this new type of ice cream is also great for the environment.

The idea is sustainable, due to the fact that the banana plants would otherwise just be thrown in the bin.

ALSO, the ice cream would be massively helpful for human energy consumption, because transporting and storing ice cream takes up a lot of cooling energy. 

Anyway, we're not sure when this kind of ice cream will be rolled out publicly, but we sure are looking forward to the day.

We've all seen those memes, right?

"When it's payday and you start buying unnecessary shit."

Well, we have discovered the most obnoxious, and unnecessary purchase ever… in the form of an ice cream dipped in gold.

Obviously like. 

How the hell does that work, I hear you ask? 

The waffle cone is sprayed with 24-karat gold dust, filled with vanilla soft serve, and coated with 24-karat gold leaves on the vanilla where the “creaminess of the vanilla makes the gold form to every curve.” 

It's all very casual. 

Anyway, in a not-so-shocking twist, these cones are currently being sold in America, specifically Anaheim, California. 

Snowopolis (10/10 for the name) is located at the Anaheim GardenWalk, a shopping centre within walking distance from California’s Disneyland Resort.

The cone will set you back $15 – which for some cheeky solid gold, seems pretty reasonable? 

Anyway, if anyone is heading to California this summer, please try this outrageous treat.

Do you ever wish you could sit back and devour an entire tub of ice cream, without the guilt? 

We're not big believers in the 'guilt' concept, and usually if we decide to polish off loads of ice cream – we bloody well will! 

However, it is comforting to know that on occasion, there is a healthier alternative that still satisfies that sweet tooth.

Enter – Ben & Jerry's for the absolute win! 

The Kings of frozen treats have launched a delicious range of low calorie ice cream – and we're excited. 

Most of us are still attempting the 2018 health kick, so this is the news we need. 

Image result for Moo-phoria light ice cream

Moo-phoria light ice cream will account for HALF of calories that a normal tub of Ben & Jerry's contains ( just 140 to 160 calories per serving.)

Take into consideration that a banana has 110 calories – make the right choice. 

The delicious sounding flavours include 'chocolate milk and cookies', 'caramel cookie fix', and 'P.B dough'

Still not entirely convinced?

Well, there's  also 60% to 70% less fat and sugar in these lovely new tubs, and no sugar substitutes. 

Moo-phoria light ice cream is also made with organic dairy – so really, it would be rude NOT to eat it. 

Pass the spoon.
