The magic words? Historically: "please" and "thank you". But at Acorn mag the magic words are "ice cream". From Japan to Paris to Toronto, these two little words make eyes light up and hearts beat a little bit faster. Diplomatic and inclusive, ice cream provides a flavour for every taste and preference. And even those whose diets don't allow dairy can indulge in a number of intriguing alternatives (think: cashew-, sweet potato milk- and coconut milk-based options). The best part? This cool, milky treat boasts characteristics—softness, pliability, versatility—that make it ideal for experimentation. Sandwiched between two biscuits, shaped into an elegant cake or wrapped in a waffle, we've rounded up some frozen dessert inspiration from far and wide in this edition of Around the World. Happy brain freeze!
