Completely lost in New York during my trip to the James Beard Awards, I stumbled upon Holey Cream. Based on the name, I thought it must be a sex shop. Turns out, it's better: Holey Cream Outrageous Donuts and Ice Cream is a dessert shop that will make you an ice cream sandwich out of donuts and ice cream. Lookit:
You pick out a doughnut, add icing and choose toppings (you get to pick from about 50 different options including Fruit Loops, Nutella, M&Ms and coconut). Then, if you're awesome, you ask them to slice that sucker in half, you pick out an ice cream and they make you a doughnut ice cream sandwich. Holey cream is right.
If you're not up for the crazy doughnut thing, get an ice cream cone. Mine was a chocolate-dipped, sprinkles-added waffle cone plus one scoop of their red velvet ice cream (yeah, it had chunks of red velvet cupcake in it). Stupid delicious.
