MOST UNUSUAL DESSERTS IN NYC
In terms of food creativity, the USA deserves a medal. After tasting –and loving– our first corn cookie from Momofuku’s Milk bar, we decided to investigate NYC’s unusual desserts scene.

Here are a few strange sweet treats we’d love –or hate– to try.
Cheetos Macaron at Macaron Parlour

Macaron Parlour has a lot of unique flavours, like Earl Grey or Rosemary & Olive oil – which all sound quite edible; that is until we noticed “Cheetos”: a macaron topped with real Cheetos dust. Too much?
Peking Duck Ice Cream at Cool Haus

Yes, that’s Peking duck skin and fortune cookie crumble in a Chinese five-spice ice cream that is topped with a plum sauce swirl. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, maybe the Fried Chicken and Waffles ice cream will.
Foie Gras Doughnut at Do or Dine

This sugar-dusted fried doughnut is infused with jelly and foie gras. Would you? Half of Brooklyn’s hipsters have –at least the none vegan ones.
Rainbow Bagel at The Bagel Store

For obvious reasons, this dessert/breakfast was highly instagramed during the last Gay Pride – and it sure looks fab. From cream cheese to jelly, customers can pick their spread.
