We’re Screaming for Melt-in-Your-Mouth Ice Cream!

image

August is literally the ice cream month. If you missed the ticket for the summer’s biggest food event - Museum of Ice Cream, don’t be sad! Melt Bakery is your local ice cream sandwich shop which located right at the Lower East Side!

In honor of National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, we met Julian Plyter, cofounder of Melt Bakery, who has been in the food business for the last decade - transitioning from personnel manager to culinary chef to ice cream sandwich shop owner! With an eye for ice cream sandwiches and all things sugary, Julian combined forces with business partner Kareem Hamandy to create Melt. Find out what this iconic ice cream sandwich shop has planned for this magical day with us!

Melt’s Ice Cream, Melt in Your Mouth.

We were really stumped on what we should name our company. We asked a whole bunch of friends, and I believe a young mom suggested “Melt”: it was a play on the idea that ice cream will melt, but also captures the savory part too like how it melts in your mouth. Once we heard it, we knew we were on to something.

From Street Cart to Brick and Mortar, It’s Been Six Years!

Melt Bakery has grown steadily since 2010 from a street cart, and it has been really cool to see the process. It used to be just me, and now its a business with 40+ employees. As we grow, we continue to remain committed to our self-propelled theology that everything is made by ourselves. Rather than add machinery, I’ve added more people. 

Every Flavor Has Its Story.

As far as the sandwiches go, I initially chose the things that seem to go well together. For instance, peanut butter and banana is an easy combination, and we called that the Elvis because that was [Elvis Presley’s] favorite kind of sandwich. The Big Deb is a riff on the Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies, it’s a essentially oatmeal cookies with vanilla ice cream. Thick mint is a riff on Girl Scout thin mint cookies, but a little thicker. Morticia is a homage to the first lady of the Addams family because it’s a little elegant and black, with almonds.

My Mom Is My Biggest Inspiration.

My mom is my biggest inspiration. She’s an ice cream-eating inspiration to everyone. She’s a size 0, but she’ll eat ice cream before dinner to make sure that she fills up on dessert. It’s endlessly enjoyable for me to know that my work is pleasing her because she is such a big, big inspiration to me. She was the one who taught me how to make these sandwiches, most particularly the chocolate chip walnut cookie. The recipe is actually hers!

Celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day with Our New Flavors!

We’re launching two new flavors - RICO = Coconut Cookies + Dulce de Leche Ice Cream, and S'MOST = Graham Cracker Cookies + Chocolate Marshmallow Ice Cream on National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!! Stop by our cart at Washington Square Park on this day, we're giving $1 off all day to celebrate!

Magnolia Celebrates Their 20th Birthday!!

image

Magnolia Bakery will be celebrating their 20-year anniversary on Thursday, July 14, and we could not be more excited! From being a cozy corner store on Bleecker Street to being featured on popular shows like Sex and the City, to international expansion in countries like Dubai and Japan, Magnolia Bakery has gone far and beyond in the last two decades. So how is Magnolia celebrating the big 2-O? We got to sit down with the manager of the flagship store for exclusive details.

Byron has been working for Magnolia Bakery for 12 years, and his character is a testament to what the bakery stands for. He is a people person with a welcoming personality, regards his customers as clients, and greets everyone with a smile! 

image

How do you feel about Magnolia becoming 20?

Byron: It’s amazing to see it grow! It really feels as if it were an actual 20-year-old person. We’ve been growing through the teenage years, slowly growing up, and figuring out how to be an adult company in a way. When I started working here 12 years ago, I never would have imagined having shops throughout the world. 

What are you doing for Magnolia’s 20th birthday?

Byron: So on July 14, we’ll be selling our classic vanilla and chocolate cupcakes for $1.25 (max. 12) at our Bleecker Street location only. We’ll also be giving out our “Bake from Scratch” scratch cards at every location, where people can win cupcakes, cakes, and birthday party passes. We’ll also have limited edition T-shirts and pens, birthday bags containing a kit to build your own cupcake, and last but not least, we’ll be introducing the confetti cupcakes, confetti cookies, and confetti ice cream sandwich! They look as great as they taste.

image

When’s the best time to visit the shop?

Byron: The morning is the best time to come, because it’s not too crazy and its not as busy as the rest of the day. 

So what do you love most about Magnolia?

Byron: Our best moments are definitely when someone walks in after a long day. There will be people who are crying, or even doctors who lost their patients. They’ll come in, get a cupcake, and smile. So what I love the most are the smiles. Oh, that and people propose here all the time!

What was your most memorable experience?

Byron: Filming the SNL video. It wasn’t planned or anything, and they were filming I was like, “Oh my gosh Andy Samberg is walking on the sidewalk.” That was crazy because a couple weeks later everyone was saying, “So... Do you mack on cupcakes?”

image

Where do you see Magnolia in the next 20 years? 

Byron: Magnolia will continue on expanding. We already have several in the States, one in Tokyo, and not to mention Hawaii has a tiny café where you can just sit and get cupcakes. I just feel like sky’s the limit! So much is happening in your 20s, and the minute you say you know where you’re going, you change in the opposite direction. With that said, we still want to stay true to our brand, which is giving our customers the same nostalgic feeling of eating our delicious goods. In 20 years we’ll be all over the world. 

How has Magnolia maintained such a great reputation over 20 years?

Byron: Hard work and training from our staff. Everyone that comes through we make sure that they’re taught to learn the recipe. We’re constantly tasting and re-tasting. I tell people I walk in circles during my shift because I’m always checking. I like to make sure everything stays true to our core. 

Last but not least - what flavors would you recommend?

Byron: You have to try the chocolate chocolate - it is the richest, moistest cupcake I’ve ever had in my life. And also butter cream. If you make it from our cookbook recipe, put it in vanilla ice cream and mix it with some chocolate, its SO good. And also the hummingbird cupcake. People won’t leave the store without it! And when we’ve run out, they say they’ll just come back another time.  

image

Thanks to Byron and the Magnolia Bakery’s staff, we got to try out some of the cupcakes. We personally vouch for the hummingbird cupcake: it is sweet, savory, and has the perfect frosting-to-cake ratio. Magnolia is celebrating their 20th anniversary and we are absolutely ecstatic. Here’s to another 20 years! 

Leap Day Doesn’t Count as Far as Diets Right? Right.

We never really got over the magic of Leap Day. Sure it’s a normal set of 24 hours that lacks a big meal, a pimped out tree, or maybe an egg hunt, but Leap Day has a magic of it’s own. For one, it’s a day that peaces out of the calendar every four years— because Leap Day apparently doesn’t need to be at the party all the time. It’s that cool— and like all things rare, we still freak out when it comes around. Babies born on this day will technically age slowly. Ladies in Ireland will propose to men. Ten lords will be a leapin’— actually, no that isn’t what Leap Day is, but we’re excited nonetheless. We’re especially stoked because the calorie minded part of us are looking at it as an opportunity to gain an extra cheat day. Today doesn’t always happen, so of course none of these calories count, right? We’ll take that chance or leap, if you will. Here’s how you can do it the right way.

Spend the Day at a Bakery

Or dessert bar? According to science and health (so health science) it’s good for us to turn off our phones and take time to ourselves to relax. Maybe you find reading in a nice sunny bay window relaxing. Or maybe you find fishing in the deep, creepily quiet wilderness relaxing. Or maybe, just maybe, you find spending a few hours at the counter of Chikalicious while you savor delectable, after delectable treat your jam. (Also, mmm jam.) Do yourself a favor: park a seat and wear your stretchy pants. Also, don’t forget to turn off all technology, like your Fitbit.

Make It A Crawl

image

This works best as a group, which makes Leap Day feel more like a holiday come to think of it, so round up your fellow sweet-minded individuals and hit up the best places around the city for a specific type of dessert. Be it chocolate chip cookies, or buttercream frosted cupcakes, or even pimped out doughnuts like from Queens Comfort, take your samples, hug everyone, and celebrate. The walking and travel times will also count as your daily exercise, sort of. That’s a double win.

Have It All in One

A photo posted by Black Tap (@blacktapnyc) on Feb 10, 2016 at 3:28pm PST

Go for the Black Tap milkshakes that’s making us go all wide and crazy-eyed. Who knew milkshakes would evolve from two straws after school with you and your steady boo at the soda shoppe to a Goliath of gluttony, rivaled only by the towering poufs sported by Marie Antoinette? For those unsure of exactly where to leap, this is a good go-to. It’s pretty much got it all: lollipops, slices of cake, sometimes fire, depending on the occasion. Sit down and take your time to enjoy each sugary bit of it, because we’re sure it’ll take you a while. Just no guilt OK? It’s not like you eat this way everyday. You’ll just do it when Leap Day comes around again in the next four years. And that’s perfectly OK by us.

Would You Swipe Right?

(or what your date's dessert choice says about them)

We’ve all been on those awkward first dates. Some of us have even been on that awkward second, third, and occasional twelfth date— by which point we should probably tell you that you should nip that in the bud because ooh honey, if it’s still that awful, it definitely won’t get any better. And these awkward dates always come with the usual small talk: “Where’s your family from?”, “What do you do for a living?”, “Have you seen Making a Murderer?”, “Do you want to watch Making a Murderer?” The usual rundown, because dates are just awkward. They’re awkward in concept and practice when you think about it: stifled small talk with a stranger who’s probably from Tinder, while you try to eat and look sexy. So in order to help you navigate the dating pool, we’ve figured out a quick-and-easy way to determine if you should keep at it. Don’t worry, here are our reasons to swipe right on the lucky guy or girl.

Chocolate Cake

image

They certainly like dessert, but what are they like when it comes to trying new things? Chocolate cake is such a comforting, feel-good thing, like visiting mom’s after a hard week of bill paying and job hustling. Chocolate Cakes obviously knows what they like and are steady and true (all good signs for relationship material!), but maybe it’s time you break them out of their shell to try something new, like the cheesecake or even a plate of macarons.

Fruit Tart

image

They probably have a nice shoe collection, used the phrase “quality over quantity” when describing their well-labeled wardrobe, and know their way around the city via Uber. They’re really suave— the word dashing comes to mind— and you can easily get swept away with their awesome smile. You got to be sure you’re ready for this jelly, because Fruit Tart is social, charming, and is pretty much the other good-looking player in your rom-com movie life.

Panna Cotta

image

Or tiramisu or creme brulee. This is not Panna Cotta’s first rodeo when it comes to the dessert menu, and we already love them for it. Past the familiar cupcakes or gelato flavors, this person is a graduated dessert enthusiast, watches Chopped on the reg, and has a dream to travel Italy for the food. Thanks, Panna Cotta, we’re ready for that second date.

The Throwback Dessert

image

We know those desserts: the ice cream sandwich with rosewater flavor, funfetti cupcake filled with a lime filling? It’s just familiar enough that Throwback Dessert feels cheekily at home ordering it. Throwback loves going to anything 90s related in Brooklyn— dance parties, bar crawls, trivia nights— and probably makes references to Skip-Its and Pop Rocks easily. We can’t help but have our wee hearts falling for the fun-loving Throwback Dessert, and we can’t help but laugh and reminisce while we take a bite of that peanut butter and jelly macaron.

Skips Dessert

image

On a positive note they are healthy. Skips Desserts cares about their bodies, probably know how to prepare kale, and runs with the same regularity of an afternoon bathroom break. On a more realistic note: they have no magic about them and probably don’t like long walks on the beach or getting caught in the rain. They also never read any of the Harry Potter books, but to their credit, they have watched the movies. Unfortunately, Skip Dessert only thought they were so-so. Best get the check, leave as politely as possible, and go find the nearest bakery and eat all of the cookies on your own. You know how to cherish the good things.

Leaves to Take You to Get the Good Doughnuts Nearby

image

Marry them. Erm, or wait and do the “proper thing” by “dating,” then becoming “boyfriend and girlfriend,” then moving in together, and then announcing your engagement on Facebook with a cute photo of the ring and a kick-ass manicure. In your head, you knew all along, but you might as well enjoy the ride. Leaves for Doughnuts obviously know what good dessert is and where to find them, and you’ll need that fun loving, adventurous spirit later in life.

An Argument for Cold Desserts in Cold Weather

It’s safe to say that we’re all done with winter and its temperamental days of temperature. First it’s cold, then it’s warm, then it’s Jon Snow north of the Wall cold? How are we supposed to cope with these mixed messages? Personally, we like to go down the stuffing our faces with Morgenstern’s ice cream route— which is also the route you take for bad break-ups and Friday happy hours come to think of it. Despite the thirty degrees and the insane wind chill factor, we’re perfectly happy with our frozen faces munching on frozen novelties, because seriously you guys: cold desserts in cold weather is the best idea since sliced bread.

No Lines to Get Your Favorites

image

Or at least a shorter line. As New Yorkers, we’re expert level line waiters (be it for cronuts or to get into that new club) but let’s be honest: we won’t wait in a line wrapping around the block for ice cream during a snowstorm. That would just be nuts… well technically nuts. Nuts for most people, at least, which is why it would be an ideal time to go wait for, say, the $15 milkshake monsters at Black Tap. Because who would want to wait for an hour and a half outside while it’s freezing? Not many. Not many except you of course.

Your Seat for the Picking

image

Have you ever gone into Sprinkles ice cream during the summer when everyone’s crowded around the counter trying to decide and there are lots of kids bouncing everywhere and you just wanted to sit and eat your cone in peace? Winter gets rid of most of those hurdles, freeing up seating while those dessert noobs are back in their cozy homes binge-watching Netflix. They don’t know what they’re missing out on.

You’re Probably Sweating Under Those Layers

image

You’re probably sweating in your down coat and your layers of heat tech, which was all well and good during your chilly walk to the subway this morning but is now slowly melting five pounds off your body in a very unattractive way. It especially stinks because your office has the heat on so high that it rivals Hades and your skin feels like you just ran a 5K under all those layers. So of course you should treat yourself to a cool, soothing scoop (or five) of gelato at the nearest parlor. You already sweated off most of the calories anyway.

No Melting

image

Eating an ice cream out while it’s in the low thirties sounds like a bad idea in theory, but is a brilliant idea in practice. Understandably, we eat ice cream cones and sundaes during summer to keep ourselves cool, but when we eat frozen treats when it’s freezing outside, we can take our time to really savor the experience. Think about it: there’s no time limit (ie: melting)! When you take a delicious ice cream cone outside, you don’t have to worry about the ice cream slowly dripping down your hand. You don’t have to eat it in a hurry. You don’t have to worry about a mess. No, instead, you can leisurely lick your cones as the frosty air nips at your nose and keeps those tasty scoops whole.

To Trick Ourselves that We’re Hot

image

Think of it as reverse psychology. Don’t repeatedly remind yourself of your poor, cold feet and your frozen faces. Instead, imagine walking down the avenue during a bad summer heatwave when the sun is beating down your back. You’re sweaty and sticky, and all you want is a cup of shaved ice to cool you off. You have to trick your brain as much as you can with this one— yes, even if you are still in a heavy puffy coat— and the best way to trick yourself is to treat yourself with that cup of shaved ice held by your wool mittened hand. Bonus: your mittens protect you from the frost bite you might get while holding a cold drink in the middle of winter. In our book that is a win-win.

6 New Ice Cream Flavors to Try in NYC

Artisan ice cream is taking over NYC this summer, with unique flavors like beer, durian, and zucchini delighting adventurous dessert-lovers. Here are five to add to your “must try” list:

1. Black Sesame

image

This powerful Japanese flavor, with its unique black color, is savory and delicious. Try it for yourself at the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, or if you’re feeling really brave, get durian -- an exotic fruit known for its pungent flavor.

2. Butter

image

You’ve tried butter pecan, cookie butter, but what about plain butter? If you’ve ever been guilty of licking your fingers after buttering a piece of toast, you might want to try the butter flavor at Odd Fellows. Sadly, popcorn is not included.

3. Cake Batter Vodka Martini

image

Booze + ice cream? Don’t mind if I do. For those who like their drinks sweet and sugary, this flavor from Tipsy Scoop is infused with cake vodka, amaretto and white chocolate liqueur. Can you get a hangover from ice cream? The only way to find out is to try it.

4. Earl Grey Tea

image

Green tea is a popular flavor, but other types of tea have been left unexplored in the world of artisan ice cream. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is trying to change that, with their vegan take on Earl Grey ice cream.

5. Sour Cream

image

You never know what you’re going to get with Max and Mina’s Ice Cream. They have a reputation for creating some of the most exotic ice cream flavors out there, including nova lox, spicy chumus, ketchup, and champagne.

6. Olive Oil (Gelato)

image

While Laboratorio del Gelato serves gelato and sorbet, rather than ice cream, they have their fair share of unique flavors, including olive oil. Rich and refreshing, olive oil gelato may not be the sweet, sugary ice cream you’re used to -- but it will certainly be an experience.

Sweet Surprises: ChikaLicious Dessert Club

image

If you had to choose your last meal on earth, what would it be?

For the folks at ChikaLicious Dessert Club, that meal would start and end with dessert. Since 2003, Chika and Dan Tillman have been serving three course dinners of entirely desserts at their East Village Location.

See Mom? Chocolate is a perfectly acceptable meal!

From the amuse-bouche to the petite fours, ChikaLicious has earned a reputation for exotic, surprising desserts, becoming a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. It can be a bit competitive to get a table, but for your daily dose of sweetness, you can try their famous desserts a la carte at the ChikaLicious across the street.

The Dessert Club has three major staples: creme puffs, crepe cakes, and dough’ssants. A master of classic dessert recipes, the bakers at ChikaLicious have created some of the most addictive sweets in Manhattan.

image

1. Creme Puffs: Bite-sized perfection. Their crisp, lightly sweet exterior conceals a rich, decadent filling. It’s important to note that they don’t skimp on the cream: there’s so much stuffed inside this tiny puff that you’ll be licking your plate clean. Try all four flavors: vanilla, creme brûlée, Boston creme, and banana. 

image

2. Crepe Cakes: A classic French cake made up of layers of paper thin crepes separated by mousse, ChikaLicious’ version is available in vanilla, Nutella (!!!), or green tea. Soft, sweet, and deliciously uncomplicated, these beautiful cakes are one of the dessert bar’s most popular offerings, and it’s easy to see why: they taste even better than they look. Fresh and flaky, with a touch of rich, gooey mousse.

image

3. Dough’ssants: Baked, rather than fried, this popular dessert hybrid is lighter than your typical donut. Soft inside and satisfyingly crispy outside, the dough’ssant is the cronut’s worthy rival. They even have seasonal flavors like pumpkin pie (and more to come!). Yes, please.

We’re proud to list ChikaLicious as one of our bakery partners. Order on Sweetist for fast and easy delivery!

A Taste of Home at Billy’s Bakery

image

Over the past few years, Manhattanites have become increasingly obsessed with modernism and minimalism. With its bright lighting, cheerful yellow brick walls, and 1940s style decor, Billy’s Bakery is a refreshing contrast. 

Founded in 2003 by a pair of business school graduates with a sweet tooth, Billy’s has quickly become a staple in the New York bakery scene. They now have three Manhattan bakeries located in Chelsea, Tribeca, and The Plaza Food Hall.

It’s not only the atmosphere that evokes nostalgia. The menu, filled with classics like banana pudding and chocolate cake, is charmingly reminiscent of sweeter, simpler times. The mission of Billy’s Bakery is to bring their customers “back to a time when a bite of something sweet could make the world a little brighter.” If you have a taste for desserts with a homemade taste and beautiful presentation, then Billy’s Bakery deserves a spot on the top of your list.

image

Even New Yorkers can’t resist a tried and true family recipe, especially when it comes to sweets. No matter how many times you try the desserts at Billy’s Bakery, they always taste so delicious it’s like you’ve never had them before. 

Take, for example, their Banana Cupcakes. Delightfully moist and tasty, these cupcakes are like a sweeter version of banana bread. Simple, but surprisingly difficult to master, the banana cupcake is a classic American dessert, with the added benefit of being healthier than most cupcakes—although you wouldn’t know it from the taste.

The most impressive thing about the cupcakes at Billy’s Bakery is their cream cheese icing, which is infinitely smooth and melty. Paired with the banana cupcake, made with buttermilk and fresh bananas, the results are absolutely dreamy.

image

Aside from cupcakes, the folks at Billy’s Bakery are masters of delicious desserts for bigger occasions. What American birthday party is complete without the perfect cake?

The ideal cake is an elusive thing. A cake in its truest form should be fluffy, yet rich. Sweet, yet flavorful. Perhaps the biggest challenge of finding the perfect cake is choosing something that will please everyone. Billy’s Bakery has found the solution in their Famous Icebox Cake (pictured above), a sumptuous treat with fresh whipped cream (chocolate, peppermint, or vanilla) layered between chocolate wafer cookies—also available in cake cup form. The whipped cream adds a light, creamy texture to the decadent chocolatey taste, achieving the perfect balance of flavor.

Aside from their amazing desserts, the best thing about Billy’s Bakery is their warmth, kindness, and hospitality, an attitude that goes right into everything they bake. Billy’s Bakery is a cozy, friendly establishment, where all the employees are deeply passionate about amazing sweets.

image

Sweetist is thrilled to be partnering with Billy’s Bakery to offer their amazing selection of desserts and baked goods for delivery. See the full menu on our website here. Whether you choose their red velvet cupcakes, banana pudding cups, or blueberry cheesecake, there’s really no way of going wrong.

Best Places to Get Baked Goods Delivered in NYC


Sweetist is the only delivery service exclusively for baked goods and desserts. Our goal is to make it easier to celebrate any occasion with great food from local bakeries. We deliver to Manhattan, up to 125th St., and to some parts of Brooklyn. Check us out, our list of bakeries is growing rapidly!


When a sugar craving strikes, a go-to place for ordering baked goods is essential. Living in New York City means that there is an abundance of amazing bakeries nearby at all times. Thanks to online ordering, you can get fresh-baked delicacies delivered right to your door without getting out of your pajamas. We took a close look at all of your options, and these 7 places took the cake.

1. Insomnia Cookies

image

Insomnia Cookies is famous for offering fresh, warm cookies until 3AM. They have a variety of locations around Manhattan (mostly near NYU). Popular offerings include Double Chocolate Chunk and S’more Jumbo Deluxe. In addition to cookies, they also deliver ice cream and cold milk. Deliveries cost $1.50 and usually take around 30-45 minutes.

2. Seamless/Grubhub

image

Why stop at dinner? Despite the fact that Seamless (now partnered with Grubhub) is best known for quick dinners and appetizers, you can find a few bakeries under the Seamless “dessert” category. Most of these bakeries have delivery minimums, but Seamless is great for a last-minute treat for when you’re having guests over and you already ate all the cookie dough.

3. Postmates

image

Postmates is one of the most well-known sites for ordering desserts in NYC, largely because of their partnerships with Momofuku Milk Bar and Dominique Ansel. Although they do charge a service fee and a delivery fee, Postmates is undoubtedly convenient when you need a sugary pick-me-up alongside your paper towels and diet soda from the Postmates General Store. The cronuts are calling.

4. Caviar

image

With a focus on independent, high-end restaurants, Caviar is a nationwide service for food delivery. Their restaurants are required to have at least 4 stars on Yelp and a minimum of 1,000 reviews. At this time they only offer a handful of baked goods to NYC, but their list includes artisanal favorites like Prohibition Bakery (boozy cupcakes!) and Doughnuttery (adorable mini doughnuts!).

5. Delivery.com

image

Delivery.com is an online delivery service that includes booze, groceries and even laundry. At this time, they only have a few bakery/cafe partners, including Seven Grams Caffe. Let’s hope they’ll add more soon. What goes better with fresh laundry than cupcakes?

6. Milk & Cookies Bakery

image

Like Insomnia Cookies, the folks at Milk & Cookies Bakery do their own deliveries between 11AM and 5pm. Be aware that they charge a delivery fee for delivery locations outside of the West Village, and the minimum order is $25. Get ready to eat a lot of cookies.

7. UberEats

image

Uber is slowly taking over New York City, one smartphone at a time. Their new service, UberEats, offers a fixed menu delivered by Uber drivers within the hours of 11AM and 2PM. In addition to the regular lunches, they occasionally offer dessert: like the Famous Banana Pudding from Magnolia Bakery, which was only $1 for the #FoodBankFriday charity fundraiser.

image

If you’ve already tried all the other options without success, if you lie awake at night thinking about brownies, if you can’t think straight without a morning muffin or at least a scone in your system...

We’d love for you to check out Sweetist!
