Melt Bakery, New York
the Elvis (pb cookie w/ banana ice cream)
I’m a fan of street markets so on a recent Saturday I checked out Hester Street Fair on the edge of LES. Along with a few other food stalls, was Melt Bakery that sells ice cream sandwiches.
That day they had 4 different flavors but if you go to their website, they rotate and experiment with new combos. I debated between the gingerdoodle cookies w/ matcha ice cream and pb cookie w/ banana ice cream. I was skepticle of the gingerdoodle so I went with the pb banana combo.
So so so good! I’ve never been much of an ice cream sandwich person but this made me a convert! The cookie was good… maybe a little too crumbly but it worked with the thick chunk of ice cream. I liked how the ice cream didn’t start melting and I didn’t end up with a huge disappointing mess.
The price was pretty reasonable too considering the size. I just hope they open up their store soon..
