Milk and Cream Cereal Bar — the original location of which can be found on Mott Street in Manhattan — is coming to 175 Newark Avenue and {thankfully!} it’s bringing its cereal-inspired ice cream creations with it. Read on to learn all about Milk and Cream, making dessert out of breakfast in Jersey City.

About Milk and Cream

According to their website, Milk and Cream is a modern spin on a timeless classic. They take your traditional ice cream cone or cup of ice cream and flip on its head, adding all kinds of delicious, nostalgic-inducing cereals. From the looks of their online menu, you can choose between five main types of dessert: a cream swirl {in either cup or cone form}, a milkshake, a bowl of cereal, or a pint {you know, for those at-home cravings}.

Choosing the mode of transpo for your ice cream is Step #1. Step #2 is picking your cereal. Milk and Cream has almost every cereal imaginable on tap — Apple Jacks, Cap’N Crunch, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Cookie Crisp, French Toast Crunch, Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Fruity Pebbles, Granola Crisp, Honey Bunches of Oats, Honey Nut Cheerios, Krave, Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, Rice Krispies, Special K, and Trix! {Extra cereal is an extra 50 cents.}

Then, you’ve got Step #3, which is all about the toppings. Milk and Cream covers every possible toppings avenue you could think of, from fruits and nuts to cookies and candy.

It’s kind of like a do-it-yourself froyo place without the do-it-yourself and subbing cereal for yogurt.

Beyond Ice Cream

Aside from pedaling ice cream-cereal hybrids, Milk and Cream also has an online store. But beware, it’s for Milk and Cream fanatics only! Hats that say “Treat yo’self” and a turquoise-and-pink “Breakfast Club” t-shirt will make you look like Milk and Cream’s all-time biggest fan.

Milk and Cream joins a host of other fan-favorite ice cream shops in Jersey City, which is starting to make us think Jersey City has a serious sweet tooth. There’s Torico Ice Cream at 20 Erie Street, rolled ice cream at Angel’s Recipe at 312 Central Ave, Freshy Freeze on Jersey Avenue, and of course, two Milk Sugar Love locations in JC.

Whether you’re craving rolled Thai ice cream, macaroon-ice cream sandwiches, or cereal-inspired sundaes, Jersey City officially has whatever dessert your sweet tooth could possibly dream up.
