To celebrate National Dessert Day on October 14, we’re diving into the best sweet treats in New York City. Ready? Let’s go!
Japanese-inspired Taiyaki have three locations in New York, so there’s really no excuse not to try their fish cone and unicorn ice-cream creations. Not only do they create beautiful sweet treats, but they also make a conscious effort to use high-quality ingredients from socially responsible vendors, leaving a minimal carbon footprint. Their classic Unicorn Taiyaki is the must-buy item, however their fluffy souffle pancakes look pretty heavenly too.
We believe that cereal shouldn’t just be consigned to the small window of breakfast. You can enjoy the sweet and crunchy treat at any time of the day! At Milk & Cream, you can opt for a classic bowl of cereal, or choose to have your favourite morning treat as a ice-cream swirl, milkshake or pint too. Pick your favourite cereal blend, toppings and drizzles, and experience cereal as you’ve never had it before.
New York City is teeming with doughnut joints, so you’re never too far away from your next sugar-fix. One place to consider is Doughnut Plant, which even offer intriguing filled square doughnuts! They also sell 100% sourdough doughnuts, as well as gluten-free and vegan delights. Perfect for those looking to enjoy their dessert fix while adhering to dietary requirements.
This next venue is draped in opulence and glamour, serving matcha green tea soft serve ice cream, twisted into a rich black cone and covered with gold. Matcha ‘n More ensure that their matcha is high quality, by importing it personally from Japan Uji (the place where matcha was first introduced). Does it get more luxurious than that? The 24K Gold Matcha is unarguably their stand-out item, however the matcha float, matcha melon bun and match white chocolate scone also sound equally enticing.
Treat a loved one - or yourself - an ‘ice cream bouquet’ from Stuffed Ice Cream. Full of colour and loads of fun, the bouquets are ideal for any self-confessed ice cream addict. There’s 12 intriguing flavours to pick from, including black sesame, mint mojito, and chocolate lavender. As well as the signature bouquets, Stuffed also offer ‘Cruffs’ - tasty donut ice cream sandwiches loaded with a bunch of toppings.
