If you’re a sucker for sweet treats and looking for something new to try, then look no further. We’re here to show you some of the funkiest sweets in NYC. These unusual bites aren’t your average ice cream cone or chocolate cake – they’re daring to be different, and they’re absolutely delicious.


Perhaps you’ve heard of the Cronut, the hybrid croissant-doughnut created by Chef Dominique Ansel in 2013. Located on Spring Street with a line that wraps around the corner, the Cronut phenomenon has taken NYC by storm. The Cronut flavor changes every month. This June, it’s Key Lime Young Coconut. July’s flavor will be Rum Caramelized Banana and Brown Sugar Ganache. This fluffy, fried pasty is definitely worth a try. Dominique Ansel Bakery, 189 Spring St, NYC [Photo via @myotherbag]

Foie Gras Donut

Co-owned by Season 8 Food Network Star winner Justin Warner, Do or Dine is a charming spot located in hipster Brooklyn. Try their sugar-dusted fried donut, infused with jelly and foie gras. With this combination of sugary fried dough and flavorful duck, you won’t be disappointed! Do or Dine, 1108 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn [Photo via @aehrwyn]


Cheetos Macaron

Christina Ha and Simon Tung both studied macaron-making with famous French chefs. Two months into their relationship, they decided to start their own macaron shop – and it’s been a huge success! Now married, the couple has 2 macaron locations and lots of unique flavors, like the Cheetos Macaron – topped off with real Cheetos dust. Also check out flavors like Candied Bacon with Maple Cream Cheese, Earl Grey, and Rosemary and Olive Oil.

Chocolate Chunk Pizza

We recommend this delicious dessert destination for all you choco-holics. Though they do have some regular food, Max Brenner is known for its dessert menu. Think chocolate everything: ice cream, fondue, crepes…and pizza! Try their Chocolate Chunk Pizza, with melted milk and white chocolate chunks and a choice of hazelnut, bananas, peanut butter, or roasted marshmallows. This funky treat is what the restaurant calls “the epitome of the Max Brenner experience.” Max Brenner, 841 Broadway, NYC [Photo via @himawari_emi]


Rainbow Bagel (with Funfetti Cream Cheese)

This neighborhood gem is the perfect spot for your Saturday morning hangover bagel or your Sunday brunch breakfast sandwich. Founded by Scot Rosillo, known as the “World’s Premiere Bagel Artist,” this bagel shop is au-natural and free of preservatives. Try the Rainbow Bagel with Funfetti Cream Cheese for a sweet and delicious treat – it’s the most beautiful bagel around! The Bagel Store, 349 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn [Photo via @mzdeedeemarie]



Golden Opulence Sundae

This $1,000 dessert holds the 2007 Guinness World Record for the most expensive sundae in the world. The restaurant sells about one sundae per month, and requires a reservation 48 hours in advance since ingredients need to be flown in from all over the world. Created to celebrate the restaurant’s 50th “golden” anniversary, this sundae consists of 3 scoops of Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla, chocolate syrup from Amedei Porcelana, pieces of Chuao chocolate (cocoa beans from the Caribbean Sea on the coast of Venezuela), candied fruits from Paris, Grand Passion dessert caviar, and is topped off with 23k of gold leaf (edible, of course!). If you want to dine like royalty, try this dessert. Serendipity 3, 225 E 60th St, NYC [Photo via @ms_heelzz]
