There’s nothing like going to any new food place whether it may be a restaurant, cafe or an ice cream parlor on Memorial Day Weekend. Anyone who is an anyone or just a New Yorker usually take advantage of this 3 day weekend to go to the Hamptons leaving New York City to become a not so much of a hustling and bustling, traffic congested city as it usually is.
This week, as you can tell from my intro, I decided to try Milk and Cream Cereal Bar located in Little Italy/Lower Manhattan. What better way to kick off the unofficial weekend of Summer by indulging in some ice cream. Milk and Cream Cereal Bar is known for their Cereal Bar, duh! But along with their cereal bar, you can enjoy cereal in three different variations: in a cereal bowl, ice cream swirl (cup or cone), and an ice cream milkshake.
So, with these three variations and arriving at the Cereal Bar Parlor right before dinner time, I decided to go with a safe ice cream swirl so I would still have an appetite for dinner. But who am I kidding? I am a foodie, I guess people would say. Even though the toppings may say otherwise, I ended up being even more hungry before the dinner because it was so refreshing and very Instagrammable:
Froot Berry Bliss
A blend of Froot Loops, strawberries & blueberries topped with Fruity Pebbles & gummy bears.
Without a doubt, I’d definitely go back to Milk & Cream Cereal Bar because there’s nothing like incorporating cereal as toppings to complete ice cream. Also because it’s ice cream? I would be more amazed if someone made terrible ice cream. Though I will say what makes Milk & Cream Cereal Bar stand out over other ice cream parlors is the creativity and thought that goes behind making variations of ice cream with cereal and just milk and cereal. Also, this isn’t always a guarantee but it also grabs customers to come in when your store is Instagrammable with a cool cereal bar and mini tv screens playing cartoons with an added bonus of neon wall lights outlining the phrase: treat yo self.
