The ice cream sandwiches from Isabella’s Ice Cream are nothing like the convenience store variety you might be familiar with. Two scratch-baked cookies are stuffed with your homemade ice cream of choice, then rolled in your favorite topping. We’ll take two, please.

Choco-Taco from HUB Ice Cream Factory

The HUB Ice Cream Factory has reinvented millennials’ favorite childhood treat: the Choco-Taco. This fresh take on an old(ish) classic is sure to make you nostalgic for the days of Nickelodeon slime, yet happy that local establishments are serving up homemade versions of your favorite treats. To make this new-age choco-taco, HUB starts with a house-made cinnamon and nutmeg-spiced waffle cone taco shell, then brushes the inside with milk chocolate and fills it with vanilla bean ice cream. It’s then dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in crushed peanuts. Call it dessert, call it dinner, call it whatever you want–you’re an adult!

Churrochatta Milkshake from Stray Dogs

Here’s a milkshake that’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost. A horchata milkshake is doused with salted caramel, then garnished with Cinnamon Toast Crunch, whipped cream, caramel, and made-to-order churros.
