Holey Cream Outrageous Ice Cream & Bake Shop

A few nights ago while watching one of the food-oriented cable channels, a small New York business called Holey Cream Outrageous Donuts & Ice Cream was explored. Not only are they known for their hand-dipped donuts like the Fruit Loop and Gummie Bear Delight, but they also scoop homemade ice cream flavors such as Peanut Butter Caramel Cookie Dough and Red Velvet Cupcake. I’m sure the Big Apple has plenty of places to get a donut or some ice cream, but Holey Cream’s Famous Original Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches are what sets them apart from the rest. For $7.25 you can customize your own crazy creation by following the directions below:

Customers pick their donut, decide which icing to add, choose the toppings to sprinkle over the fresh icing and then select three heaping scoops of homemade ice cream to stuff in between. These extra large ice cream sandwiches are served in a big plastic to-go bowl that barely contains their super-sized offerings. According to their website, “Holey Cream is well known in Midtown for offering unique and outstanding sweet treats. Holey Cream is open late so that no matter what time you’re craving a delicious treat, they can always satisfy your hunger. The Specialty Sundaes, Ice Cream Donut Sandwiches, and Milk Shakes are all prepared quickly and delivered to you right away. Holey Cream uses only the freshest ingredients around, ensuring that every dish is of the highest possible quality. Be sure to try the best selling Fat Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Ice Cream and see why customers are always coming back for more. Order online or stop by Holey Cream today!"

With the seemingly endless possibilities available, I'm sure I'd have a hard time deciding on what exactly to go with, but after browsing their menu for a few minutes I think I'd go with this combination: Nutella dipped donut with graham cracker crumbs, a scoop of their Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, a scoop of their Homemade Pretzel and a scoop of their Midnight Cookies & Cream. If anyone has ever been to this magical sounding place, or indulged in one of their incredible donut ice cream sandwiches, please share your experience!

  1. It's been so long since I've eaten at an ice cream shop. Not sure if I'd count a frozen yogurt shop as one, but as far as actual ice cream the last time I had something was at a nearby Cold Stone after my friend and I saw Thor...on opening day.

    But it's always a real shock when you see their creations; makes the in-store creations look dull, by comparison. There is one about 30 minutes away that has a Fair Sundae ice cream: cotton candy ice cream with fudge, graham cracker crumbs and some other crazy stuff.

    1. It's been a while for me as well. I don't consider all the self-serve FroYo shops as ice cream either. I've had good experiences at both Cold Stone and Marble Slab whenever I've went...but it's been a while. All the different options are a bit overwhelming.

  2. I live in the NYC area and will stop by Holey Cream sometime this summer. Whenever I do, I'll write a reader review. :)

    As equal parts health nut and ice cream aficionado, however, I'll have to find a special reason to eat a doughnut and several scoops of ice cream in one sitting!

    1. That would be incredible! I'm the exact same way, but it would be worth fasting the rest of the day for something like this!
