MilkMade Ice Cream
ice cream, made locally from sustainable ingredients in small batches right here in New York. Oh, and it’s delivered to your door. Sounds kind of amazing, right? That’s what MilkMade Ice Cream is all about. They use the freshest ingredients, and by doing so, support the local food economy. The dairy, for example, comes from sustainable farms in the area. MilkMade Ice Cream creates new flavors on a monthly basis like Salted Caramel n Shortbread, Mint Julep and EVOO&C (EVOO ice cream, layered wtih a homemade Mast Brothers Chocolate swirl). There is one catch, due to limited quantities and distribution membership is required. So sign up here – with the unique flavors, delicious ingredients and the fact that it’s delivered to your doorstep, I don’t know why you wouldn’t.

Hester Street Fair food vendor that’s hard to resist. New York based company, melt bakery makes innovative updates to one of my favorite childhood treats: the ice cream sandwich. It’s kind of two desserts in one, so what kid (or adult) wouldn’t be a fan? The company was founded by pastry chef Julian Plyter and businessman Kareem Hamady in the Lower East Side. And with the “lovelet” – red velvet whoopie pies with cream cheese ice cream, or the “elvis” – banana ice cream with peanut butter cookies, theses aren’t your ordinary chipwiches. They offer delivery – from the East River to the Hudson River all the way from Canal to 96th Streets. In addition to selling these irresistible treats on Saturdays at the Hester Street Fair , they’re available in the Standard Hotel underpass Friday thru Sunday all summer long as well as some local spots around the city. With all of the flavors, it’s a tough decision, but I think I’m going with the “thick mint” – a chocolate cookie and peppermint ice cream. Not to fret, there is always the “classic” (chocolate chip walnut cookie and vanilla ice cream) for those looking to take a trip down memory lane.
