What better way to celebrate the first official week of summer than with (completely delicious) free ice cream? Beginning on Friday, June 21, and lasting through Friday, June 28, La Maison du Chocolat, one of our all-time favorite chocolate shops for kids, is offering a complimentary in-store tasting of its classic chocolate ice cream and fresh mara des bois strawberries at its boutique locations around the city (noon–6pm). Hungry for more? The world-renowned chocolate company has a whole summer collection of handcrafted and additive-, preservative- and artificial color–free ice creams and sorbets offered in individual cups (their 3.5 oz. “le petit pot de glace”; $4.50)—other flavors include passion fruit and mango, pistachio and caramel—that make a refreshing (and portable) treat for ice-cream enthusiasts of all ages.
