Ice Cream Doughnuts Are Now a Thing — and Trust Us, They Are Glorious

From the Cronut to the Avocado Burger Bun, there’s always a new trendy food taking over our Instagram feeds. And while we wouldn’t jump off a bridge if everyone else was … we certainly will trek to Pasedena in the pursuit of some much-raved about Ice Cream Doughnuts. After all, how often do two of our favorite desserts come together in such a spectacular (if absurdly calorie-packed) treat? (Well, OK, they’ve been a thing on Pinterest for quite some time but whatever.)

The trendy dessert has gone viral this week thanks to B Sweet Dessert Bar in California that posted some incredibly gorgeous shots of their version of the treat (which they call the “Halo”):

Hungry yet? Well, we were immediately salivating when we saw these images and figured we just had to find out for ourselves if all the hype was justified.

While we couldn’t make it to the West LA B Sweet location, we did find another version of ice cream doughnuts at Afters Ice Cream in Pasadena, CA. At Afters, they refer to the dessert as “milky buns” and they offer 15 different ice cream flavors and a bevy of toppings for you to mix, match, and sandwich between a glazed doughnut. They even have exclusive Hello Kitty-themed flavors, if that’s your jam.

As you can imagine, they were all equally amazing and we feel 0 guilt about all the ice cream doughnuts we plan on consuming in the (possibly quite near) future.
