Milk Bar

Welcome to back to one of my Food Series post! Today we are visiting a sweet and savory shop called Milk Bar that I visited while in New York. Milk Bar first opened it's doors in 2008 and has been "shaking up the dessert scene" ever since. Milk Bar creates a variety of treats and is best known for its invention of the Compost Cookie, a naked layered cake (unfrosted sides), Cereal Milk soft serve, and Milk Bar pie. Bon Appetit magazine called them "one of the most exciting bakeries in the country". If you're ready, join me on my visit to Milk Bar!

On mine and Rudy's second day in New York City, we decided to go on a walk and pick up something sweet. We were super lucky that there was a Milk Bar a few blocks away from our hotel. New York currently has nine Milk Bar locations with a brand new one coming soon, and we visited their Upper West Side location. This was a small location but it was perfect enough to grab some soft serve and enjoy. Most of the people I saw come in would purchase their desserts to go. With the shop being so small, it was pretty cute inside. It was filled with accents of their signature hot pink shade.
Milk Bar offers so many desserts to choose from as I mentioned before. Their menu consists of cakes,  pies, cookies, cake truffles, baking mixes, merch such as cookbooks and in stores cereal milk soft serve. Their recipes are wild. For example, the Compost cookie is a sweet and salty combo which consists of chocolate chips, pretzels, potato chips, coffee, and butterscotch. Their Cornflake-Marshmallow chocolate chip cookie contains exactly that, cornflake cereal and mini marshmallows. We ordered one cornflake-marshmallow-chocolate chip cookie and one of their confetti cookies for the road.
The main reason I was dying to visit Milk Bar was to try out their soft serve ice cream made of cereal milk! They offer two flavors and Rudy and I decided to each order one so we could try them both out. Immediately I knew I was going to order the Fruity Cereal Milk soft serve since it contains fruity pebbles, my favorite cereal! Rudy ordered their original Cereal Milk soft serve that has cornflakes sprinkles over top. They were absolutely delicious, but I did favor mine more because of the cereal. Rudy's was yummy but definitely fell more on the saltier side which we weren't big fans of.

The same thing goes for their cookies. I was very disappointed with how salty they were. I had high expectation for them since I heard nothing but great things. Fruity Cereal Milk ice cream for the win, sadly everything else fell flat for us both.
We have reached the end of today's food series post. Have you ever visited a Milk Bar location, and if so what do you think of them? I hope you enjoyed this post, now go grab yourself a delicious soft serve!
