The brainchild of a NYC pastry chef, and a finance trained idea guy – Melt Bakery has become the city’s go to for delicious ice cream sandwiches. Born in the summer of 2010, with just enough cash for ingredients and a kitchen rental, and a sweet (pun intended) mission: to create delicious ice cream cookie sandwiches, and serve them up with equally great customer service.  The profits from the first day of sales were used to buy more ingredients, and more kitchen time, thusly came more ice cream sandwiches, more ingredients and just like that Melt Bakery came to be.

The beautiful marriage of ice cream and cookies is in as many ways simple as it is complex. With scrumptious sandwiches ranging everywhere from classics like vanilla between chocolate chip cookie, to more adventurous concoctions like the Morticia. Think malted chocolate rum ice cream between crackly chocolate cookies, the crackly chocolate cookie tastes like the inside of a rich and creamy ice cream cake, while the malted chocolate rum ice cream is exquisite and full of deep and delicious flavor reminiscent of childhood milkshakes. Needless to Melt has something to tantalize anyone’s taste buds.

With locations all over the city, it’s no wonder Melt has become the authority on NYC desserts. Spreading their sweetness everywhere form Madison Square Park, all the way down to SoHo, and across the river to DUMBO there’s a sweet treat waiting for you in every corner of the city. But don’t just treat yourself! Melt is the perfect treat for an office party, birthday party, or just because for you and whoever you want to share some sweetness with. The melty chewy goodness is just a click away from making your next event, the sweetest one yet.

5 Best Food Trucks For Warming Up

If you still have to make that daily trek to work, then consider stopping at one of these gourmet trucks for a quick bite of warm, delicious comfort food. Shiver not, the New York Food Truck Association has got you covered.

New York City’s tiny piece of the troposphere is undergoing an unhappy phase of piercing winds and freezing cold air. Snow smothers the streets. Thin coats of ice now glaze parts of the sidewalk where small puddles once were, and hapless pedestrians throughout all five boroughs are probably slipping on these frozen traps and falling backwards on their butts right now, as you read this blog.

Yet no matter how dangerous the roads may be, or how dried up and numb our faces are from the cold, we still must get things done! If you still have to make that daily trek to work, then consider stopping at one of these gourmet trucks for a quick bite of warm, delicious comfort food. Shiver not, the New York Food Truck Association has got you covered.

Here is a sample of five of our best picks:

MAC TRUCK:

Of course a truck dedicated to mac and cheese, arguably the comfiest of all comfort foods, must lead this list. Celebrity Chef Dom Tesoriero’s Mac Truck serves a heavenly assortment of gut warming (and filling) renditions of this American staple snack. The classic, plain macaroni and cheese is great for first-timers; but, for an extra layer of flavor, try the cheeseburger or pulled pork variations. How can you go wrong with melted cheese on a wintry day?

MONSTER COFFEE:

Everything is easier with coffee on a frigid morning. Walking to and from work. Shopping for winter clothes at a department store or for allergy medicine at a pharmacy. Why settle for boring chain-store coffee when you can warm your bones with a drip, latté, cappuccino, tea, or hot chocolate, from the most fun coffee and pastry truck in town? A steaming cup of coffee delivers the heat and the energy necessary to pull through this long season.

NATHAN’S:

Everyone’s favorite hot dog stand is wonderful year-round, but Nathan’s scrumptious chili and cheese toppings are necessary now more than ever. Choosing to spoil yourself with a hot dog drenched in chili is truly an act of self-care when it is 12 degrees outside and your pinkie is freezing off. This is also the kind of snack to surprise your co-workers with, if you happen upon this NYFTA darling!

SOUVLAKI GR:

When it’s this cold, I sometimes visualize myself tanning in July on a sun-dappled beach in Athens, Greece. The crystal blue waves of the Aegean Sea lap against my feet as I sprawl my limbs out on a sandy shore. Rays of heat emanate from the sun and radiate off the rocks and stony sidewalks. It helps to chow on a warm pita or bifteki sandwich from Souvlaki GR when I play this imagination game. Give it try. You won’t be disappointed.

GORILLA CHEESE:

 The list begins and ends with melted cheese cuisine, because how could it not? 2018 should be about self-care and the small joys that make up a fulfilling life, and delicious cheesy treats always manage to soothe and satisfy my soul. Gorilla Cheese NYC is my favorite grilled cheese truck—it has a phenomenal menu with customization options that will either overwhelm you with choices or lead you to build the sandwich of your dreams. Want the decision making done for you? This truck also carries a long list of specialty sandwiches with a range of cheeses, like brie, asiago, muenster, mozzarella, and parmesan. Vegetarians are also sure to find something perfect for them here.

Stay warm New Yorkers!
