The holiday season is the perfect time to ditch the diet and indulge a bit! If I am going to have a treat, I really like to go for the best there is! One of my favorite places to get my sweet on is at Milk Sugar Love in Jersey City. Located in the charming Hamilton Park area, this chic treat spot overlooks the park and was named one of the best ice cream spots in the state by NJ.com.
When I walked in, I was immediately greeted with a warm welcome and the shabby chic type decor caught my eye. There’s a case of cookies that you see as you walk in and the space is really open which I like. In the case were delicious holiday macaroons, cupcakes decorated with tasty icing and whimsical sprinkles and I even noticed a cookie shaped like the Garden State #gojersey!
I heard the buzz about Milk Sugar Love’s Fruity Pebble Mac Daddy ice cream cake and had to get a look (and a taste) first hand. Why not be the life of the seasonal festivities. Surely showing up to a holiday soiree with this cake would score points?! Or you can be the hostess with the most as you serve this to your party guests! Jokes aside, this cake is everything and more. This retails for about $40. There is also a mini version of this macaroon/ice cream treat that is about $6. This treat is also gluten-free. You can also peruse their holiday menu. Also, flying off the shelves are their gingerbread ice-cream sandwiches which are a local fave.
WE HAVE CAKES. Any of the 6" ice cream cakes on our menu are always stocked and ready to pick up at the shop without a preorder. . . . . . . #milksugarlove #smallbatch #organic #local #feedfeed #FOOD52 #icecreamofinsta #instafood #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #EEEEEATS #feastagram #forkyeah #ForkFeed #donutscookiesandcream #thrillist #eater #streetfoodguide
Needing to warm up, the homemade fresh hot chocolate with real marshmallows had me at hello (move over Swiss Miss). The first sip was heaven! If you are in the mood for ice-cream their specialty cones; think Red Velvet cone and Salted Caramel ice-cream will have you thinking about a return visit. The owner Emma is a boss babe after my own heart and she personally came out to chat treats! ‘Tis the season and be sure to stop by Milk Sugar Love for ice-cream, custom cakes, pastries and private events. Tell her OMJ sent you and happy holidays!
