The Sweeter Side of New York – Ice Cream!

The Sweeter Side of New York – Ice Cream!, New York, New York (B)

As a kid my memories of visiting family in New York during the summer are hot and humid. And while the weather is an unavoidable factor, as an adult I’ve realized that there is so much to see and do around the city during warmer months, and equally as many good excuses to indulge in ice cream (and lots of it, especially if you are pregnant).

By no means is this an extensive list of all the many wonderful frozen treats New York has to offer – you’ll find ice cream trucks on almost every corner and concept shops like Pop Bar, Big Gay Ice Cream and 10Below Ice Cream to name a few, plus the newly-opened Museum of Ice Cream pop-up exhibit. Rather, here are a just few of highlights from my most recent (hot) trip to the city.

Imagine a place where ice cream can play a convincing double for breakfast and then you’ve imagined Milk Bar. The sister bakery to the famed Momofuku restaurant group attracts quite the cult following thanks to an array of treats like gigantic soft cookies, insane layer cakes and a little something called Crack Pie. But since we were there during the heat of the afternoon, our eyes were set on the Cereal Milk soft serve. Creamy and slightly sweet, but not too sweet, it literally tastes like the milk left at the bottom of your cereal bowl (there’s also a Fruity Cereal Milk option). Choose from a handful of toppings such as sprinkles, chocolate chips or corn flakes, the latter which they’ll also add to the bottom of your cup to further recreate that familiar breakfast experience that is loved by many. ......
