Three of this month’s openings are part of what the New York Times referred to as “The Funfetti Explosion” back in October—a phenomenon of instagrammable sweets that incorporate rainbow sprinkles.
- Bubble Bar features rainbow sprinkles as one of the possible toppings on the bubble waffles. Shown here is the delicious waffle I ordered with Cookies and Cream ice cream, caramel drizzle, and the rainbow sprinkles topping.
- Doˉ has a number of options involving rainbow sprinkles. Shown here is the sundae with ice cream and cookie dough, topped with rainbow sprinkles.
- Milk Bar has a number of items with the words “birthday cake,” which just means that rainbow sprinkles are involved. When I go there, I always get the Birthday Cake truffles. Pictured here is Milk Bar employee Erin Chambers holding the Birthday Cake cake in front of the “Wall of Sprinkles.” The West Village location is the only one with the wall, and customers are already taking selfies with the sprinkles.
