There are just some things we can’t get enough of in the summer, and ice cream is at the top of the list. And the latest fad? It’s not about funky new flavours or healthy ingredient substitutions, but rather a unique method of creation and presentation: rosette-like rolls.

A staple of Bangkok street stalls, Thai ice cream rolls first popped up in NYC last summer; now, the gorgeous treat is inspiring lineups at select parlours across Canada. They’re made by blending cream and fancy mix-ins, from cookie dough to taro, on an anti-griddle (think super-chilled metal plate). The mixture is then flattened into sheets, scraped up into rolls, and tucked into a dish to create mouthwatering, Instagram-worthy delights. 

Get your hands on some rolled up frozen goodness at these Canadian shops currently dishing it out:
