Treat Yourself This #NationalDessertDay
Today is National Dessert Day and that can only mean one thing. It’s time to treat yourself. UberEATS is teaming up with dozens of bakers and ice cream makers to bring you the buzziest sweets in our cities. Trust us, we’re not talking about Mom’s apple pie (don’t tell her we said that). Meet some of the culinary creations that are changing the dessert game.
Washington, DC: Pops by Haley
You’ve heard of push pop ice cream. But cake? In 2014, Haley Raphael left the corporate world for the sweet life and has been pumping out layered cake pop flavors like red velvet and chocolate peanut butter ever since. Today, folks in DC can get her Vanilla Birthday Pop.
New York City: Cookie DO NYC
If for you, “baking cookies” means “eating cookie dough,” then Cookie Do NYC is your new best friend. Kristen Tomlan has made our childhood (okay, adulthood) dreams come true by creating safe-to-eat cookie dough in flavors like Snickerdoodle and Confetti, and we can’t keep our spoons out of it. Today, lucky New Yorkers will feel like a kid at a campfire with her flavor, Gimmie S’more.
Toronto: Bake Shoppe
This gem in Toronto specializes in reimagining old school favorites. Marshmallow crispy treats made with cereal? Nah, Bake Shoppe makes theirs with potato chips. Today, Toronto is featuring their Four Berry Pop Tart. A far cry from the kind that comes in a box.
Austin: Amy’s Ice Creams
Established in 1984, Amy’s Ice Creams is the go-to spot for premium ice cream, fruit ice, and frozen yogurt in Austin. With 350 rotating flavors, Amy is constantly outdoing herself. Today, Austin eaters can get Amy’s famous Mexican Vanilla ice cream with a Biscoff Cookie Crumble kick. You lucky ducks.
Chef Kamal Grant, owner of Sublime Doughnuts, perfected his craft baking in the US Navy and infuses flavors from his travels into every fluffy treat. Today, Atlanta eaters can get their hands on a selection of his doughnuts from Orange Dream Star to Red Velvet Cake.
And what pairs better with doughnuts than coffee? The folks at Banjo Cold Brew Coffee are offering Banjo Pitch Black, the perfect compliment to Chef Grant’s Strawberry N’ Cream doughnut.
Known for brioche donuts, torched meringues, and their signature Cruffins, Mr. Holmes Bakehouse has become a must-visit for tourist and locals alike–and they have a line out the door to prove it. Today, Mr. Holmes is offering Matcha Cream and Passion Fruit Curd Donuts. Yum.
San Franciscans looking to make friends at work can also order up a box of Sift Dessert Bar macarons. With flavors like Rasperry Lemon, Coffee, Strawberry, Earl Grey, and Blackberry Lavender, popularity is almost guaranteed.
Want a little ice cream to top it all off? Humphrey Slocombe, the “bizarre, delicious, frozen universe” of owners Jake Godby and Sean Vahey, known for imaginative flavors like Olive Oil and Honey Thyme, is rounding out the menu with Secret Breakfast Ice Cream.
Chicago: Bittersweet Pastry Shop
This sophisticated shop has set the standard for fine desserts in the Windy City–serving delicate creations from tiramisu to truffles and earning the fierce loyalty of Chicagoans young and old. Bittersweet fans are in for a treat. Today, they’re offering a Salted Caramel Apple Bread Pudding exclusively through UberEATS.
Los Angeles: Bottega Louie
This Los Angeles institution makes small batches of macarons with almond flour, natural fresh fruit compotes, butter creams, and ganaches. These little treats are also gluten free. The best part? Los Angeles eaters will get a complimentary assortment with every lunch order today.
Tastebuds tingling? Open your Uber app between 11am and 2pm to see if your city’s offering a National Dessert Day treat.
