Like, really really hot, and besides submerging ourselves in large bodies of freezing cold water, the only thing we can do is cool down with ice cream! Instead of settling for your random ho-hum vanilla from a random spot in the center how about treating your tastebuds to the best that Madrid has to offer?

Tip: These all-natural and freshly made popcicles are always a welcome treat as the flavors are strong, and enticing! We’re partial to the lime and chile; however, they also offer several yogurt-based options too. The flavors change quite often so whenever you go it’s a pleasant surprise.
