Pause to reevaluate your summer and appreciate dessert innovation. Down in Nashville, Five Daughters Bakery has invented the desert that we all didn't know we were waiting for - an ice cream donut. This puppy's like a jelly donut but not gross, because it's filled with delicious ice cream instead of an unidentified gooey substance. While we'll have to wait until NYC donuteries answer the call for this incredible invention, in the meantime, we can find solace at places (like Carpe Donut) that offer donut ice cream sandwiches. But (cue childish whining voice, eh hem) it's just not the saaaaame. It's crazy to think that we're missing out on something because we live in New York City.
