La Glace Ice Cream Now Offering Exquisite Milk-Glass Pints To Take Home
La Glace brings a certain je ne sais quoi to housewarmings, dinner parties, and cozy nights by the fire with ice cream beautifully packaged in decorative keepsake milk-glass jars. This past summer, La Glace won over the hearts of locals and tourists alike with its Parisian charm, serving decadent French-style ice cream in cups and cones at their romantic west-side shop. Now, their much-loved creamy creations can be enjoyed at home as the ideal accompaniment to scrumptious winter baking, or simply savoured with two spoons and someone cherished.
“Our ice cream is so rich and luxurious,” says Mark Tagulao, founder and culinary director of La Glace. “We wanted the packaging to be equally impressive—something our guests can treasure or delight in gifting.”
Designed by the creative team at Arithmetic, the mint-green glass jar is custom made from milk glass and accented by a gold-coloured metal lid embellished with the La Glace brand.One vegan and two French-style ice creams are now available as take-home treats; limited signature and seasonal flavours will be released gradually over the coming months. Elegantly packaged to go are classic Ganache made with dark Valrhona chocolate and Crème de la Crème infused with fragrant vanilla bean, as well as Vegan Coco Pandan (pandan-infused coconut cream) for sweet plant-based indulgence. House-made pastries and confections, gourmet sprinkles, and petite sugar cones are also lovingly packaged for dainty at-home extravagance.
