Easy meal prep with Freshable
We’re always up for a road trip. But, what do we eat? Exploring new places and immersing yourself in different cultures is always thrilling, but when it comes to mealtime, we’re oftentimes at a loss about what to eat on the road, especially in remote places.

Beat this El Niño heat with Haagen-Dazs X Pierre Hermé
Okay, so this isn’t actually a tool, but it’s definitely a thing. This El Niño heat we’re experiencing right now is all too real. When it comes to beating the heat while traveling, few things can rival a delightful scoop of ice cream! And right now, summertime just got better with the Macaron Ice Cream Collection — a mashup of Pierre Hermé’s macarons and Häagen-Dazs’s signature ice cream.
These two iconic brands come together to create an indulgent experience that is sure to cool you down and satisfy your cravings for something sweet and refreshing. The best part? They’re available in takeaway pints, for delivery, and at most major supermarkets! So you can always have a scoop of happiness on the road or have it delivered to you.
The collection’s three flavours blend crunchy chewy micro macaron shells with creamy ice cream. Tuck into the sweet and summery Strawberry & Raspberry, the rich and decadent Double Chocolate Ganache, and the tangy and refreshing Yuzu & Lemon.
