Creamo

Silver Lake

Donut Friend’s new ice cream shop, Creamo, is breaking in the holiday season with their limited-edition GingerBraid flavor. It’s a vanilla base soaked with housemade gingerbread cookies that gives off a toothsome ginger and molasses flavor. Get it in a cup, cone, or donut, and deck it out in all your favorite toppings.

Baked Vegan Vixen

Pop-up

Are you on the lookout for those trendy hot chocolate bombs? Baked Vegan Vixen has them! If you haven’t scrolled through Instagram or TikTok recently, these new treats are a hollow ball of chocolate filled with marshmallows. When you pour steamed milk over the chocolate bomb, it melts and becomes hot chocolate, revealing the marshmallows inside. Sounds glorious, right? Other holiday confections from this pop-up enlist Christmas-themed pop-tarts, Santa-style slutty blondies, sugar and gingerbread cookies, caramel apple pie crumble, cinnamon roll apple pies, funfetti cinnamon roll cupcakes, and Christmas tree snack cakes in the style of those nostalgic Little Debbie snacks.
