McDonald’s Now Serves Its Own Dessert Taco


By Cooking Panda

If you’re a McDonald’s fan with a sweet tooth, then you’re in luck.

The always-on-top-of-it folks over at Brand Eating reported that McDonald’s Italy has debuted what looks like an amazing new iteration of the already-beloved Klondike Choco Taco.

Called the Sundae Pocket, the new dessert is a taco-shaped pita filled with vanilla soft serve, chocolate fudge and a fine sprinkling of hazelnuts.

From what we can see, the pita looks like it may also be dusted with some cinnamon, although we can’t confirm that that’s the case.

For some unfathomable reason, none of the stateside McDonald’s locations appears to be serving the Sundae Pocket, but Italian consumers can pick up this 331-calorie treat next time they have a hunkering for the golden arches.

Cronut Creator Dominique Ansel Presents A New Ice-Cream Creation


By Cooking Panda

Hot-dog ice cream? So last week. 

Now it’s all about the ice-cream taco, on sale in mid-July at Dominique Ansel Kitchen in New York. 

The dessert hybrid of the moment is the brainchild of Ansel — the chef responsible for the cronut — and Mexican-restaurant founder Alex Stupak.

Corn shines in the $6 ice-cream taco; it’s got sweet corn ice cream scooped into a masa-waffle cone “shell,” plus a drizzle of roasted corn caramel, lime zest, sea salt and a side of salsa verde. 

Grab yours from July 15 to 17 after noon, and don’t forget to wash it down with a cup of homemade horchata.

And if you can’t make it to the West Village for a taco, fear not. Ansel seems to love collaborating with creative chefs, so you’ll likely be in town to try a snazzy food invention one of these days.
