Yes… Milk Bar’s Desserts Really Are That Good
There are fans, there are superfans, and then there are Milk Bar fans — who are so committed to savoring Milk Bar’s coveted treats that they’re willing to wait in colossal lines for up to three hours on opening day. If that sounds insane, you’ve clearly never tried their products.
Milk Bar doesn’t just make desserts. They throw convention out the window to craft rule-breaking, palate-delighting treats that challenge the idea of what a dessert can be. From the iconic “naked” Birthday Cake to mouthwatering seasonal twists on their best-selling products, Milk Bar’s products aren’t just mind-blowingly delicious — they’re inimitable. Just ask Chrissy Tiegen.
Founder and CEO Christina Tosi started Milk Bar in 2008 in a tiny bakery space in New York City, and has since expanded to more than a dozen locations across the country. But for anyone who doesn’t live close to a Milk Bar store, we have fantastic news: the bakery that Bon Appetit dubbed “one of the most exciting bakeries in the country” is now available for next-day delivery nationwide. You read that right: you can try New York City’s favorite desserts tomorrow (and get free shipping over $80 while you’re at it).
Quite literally everything that Milk Bar makes is delicious, but here are our can’t miss items:
If Your Love Language Is Butter
The dessert that started it all — the Milk Bar Pie is everything that a dessert should be. The Milk Bar website says this pie feeds 8 to 10 people, but most of our team has had no issue with crushing one of these babies solo. The gooey, impossibly buttery, sweet and salty filling is tucked into an oat cookie crust (swoon) and the result is an irresistible, messy treat that just feels plain naughty.
If You’re In the Mood to Celebrate
The bestselling Birthday Cake was inspired by nostalgic childhood memories, but transformed into a mind-blowingly delicious dessert that adults and kids alike obsess over. Supermodel Karlie Kloss even had a giant version of this cake as her wedding cake.
It starts with three perfect tiers of rainbow-flecked funfetti cake, which is layered with a hefty dose of vanilla frosting, then topped with cake truffles and rainbow sprinkles for good measure. It’s a masterpiece of butter, sugar, and flour, but for our gluten-averse friends, Milk Bar even has a delightful gluten-free option available!
If You Want To Try It All
We really wanted to pick a favorite flavor, but after a few rigorous rounds of taste-testing Milk Bar’s fudgy, fruity, chewy, corn-y, crispy, and salty-sweet cookies, we simply couldn’t decide. Luckily, you won’t have to with this Dozen Assorted Cookie Tin, which comes with all six of Milk Bar’s cookie flavors, including the famous “Compost Cookies.” We double-dog-dare you to try and pick a favorite…
If You Like Eating With Your Hands
What started as a way to use leftover cake scraps and frosting quickly evolved into a cult classic dessert that’s like a slice of cake, but with no utensils required. Milk Bar’s Birthday Cake Truffles, Gluten-Free Birthday Cake Truffles, and Chocolate Birthday Cake Truffles are always available, but they occasionally drop playful seasonal flavors too (like the can’t-miss Strawberry Shortcake truffle available now).
If You Live Every Day Like It’s Your Birthday
Sure, you could wait until your next birthday to enjoy this supersized assortment of Milk Bar heavy-hitters. Or, you could invite some friends over and treat them to Milk Bar’s bestselling treats just because. The Ultimate Birthday collection includes a Birthday Cake and B’Day Truffles, a selection of assorted cookies, AND a whole Milk Bar Pie, so there’s something for everyone. Just make sure to send us an invite.
If You’re Still Reading This…
We hope you’re drooling over Milk Bar’s website and not still reading this, but if you are, it’s worth mentioning that Milk Bar’s products make PERFECT gifts. Whether it’s a holiday, an anniversary, a birthday, a half birthday, or a Tuesday, these show-stopping treats are sure to solidify your “favorite child” or “best friend” status.
Every order ships with next-day delivery (we’re looking at you, last-minute gifters), but you can also schedule a delivery up to 30 days in advance. We have it on good authority that the limited-release seasonal products always sell out quickly, so if there’s something you have your eye on, we’d suggest ordering it ASAP.
