The number of sweltering days ahead of us may be growing fewer, but we’re still clinging on to every inch of summer that we have left. One of the most enjoyable ways to take your mind off of the fact that this wonderful season is coming to a close, is to set up shop with a tasty ice cream treat.
If you’ve grown tired of chasing down the neighborhood ice cream truck or are just looking to check out someplace new, then you’re in luck. There’s no better place to get your fix for summer desserts than this tiny shop in New York that serves ice cream sandwiches:
Right in Midtown, you'll find this tiny but vibrant shop that holds the key to your happiness.
New York City is known for showing visitors things that they would've never dreamed of, especially when it comes to food. There are so many mind-blowing ice cream shops in the Big Apple, narrowing it down to one place can prove to be difficult. We're truly spoiled.
Walk through the doors of Holey Cream and you'll immediately see what's pictured below, painted up on the wall.
Combining the best of both world's, Holey Cream allows you to create your own mouthwatering Donut Ice Cream Sandwich!
Once again, we are so spoiled. The most difficult part of this trip will be deciding all of your flavors and toppings. Pictured above, you can see the slice of heaven we like to refer to as the Toppings Bar.
Take it all in, appreciate the amazing donut and ice cream combination that has been brought to real life!
From M&M's to Fruit Loops, the topping choices will appeal to any and every sweet tooth that walks in through the door.
The best advice we can give to anyone making their first visit to this shop, is to arrive on a very empty stomach.
We assure you, you'll want every inch and corner of your stomach available to tackle these masterful desserts. It also never hurts to bring a friend along with you so that you can both try different flavors and toppings, because you'll for obvious reasons have a hard time narrowing things down to one choice.
The homemade ice cream's are packed with creamy flavor that will have you sounding like the happiest broken record.
Quickly captivated by the fresh smells within this shop, you'll have a hard time stopping yourself from repeatedly giving this place compliments. Another major problem you'll stumble upon while ordering at Holey Cream, picking your ice cream flavor. From Outrageous Long Island Raspberry Rhapsody to Midnight Cookies and Cream, your eyes will quickly grow bigger than your stomach.
If for some reason you find yourself not wanting to combine your donut with ice cream, you can try one of their amazing donuts on its own!
Holey Cream offers a variety of fresh donuts that you only wish you could've gotten your hands on as a child, fulfilling every outrageous dessert dream you ever had. From Gummie Bear Delight to Nutella and Rainbow Sprinkles, you'll fall in love with these donuts.
While the shop is known for being one of the first places to have the Donut Ice Cream Sandwich, it's also known for many other delicious desserts.
Pictured above, you can see the tasty Reeses Brownie, a popular order at Holey Cream. Alongside a variety of brownies, you can also get jumbo cookies, sundaes, frozen yogurt, smoothies and more here! So basically, everything you've ever desired.
