Milk and Cream Cereal Bar Is Opening This Thursday in Jersey City

Written by:

I scream, you scream, we all scream for — cereal? Back in August of 2019, thanks to intel from Jersey City’s Historic Downtown District, we discovered that JC was getting a new ice cream shop, with a twist. We learned that Milk and Cream Cereal Bar — the original location of which can be found on Mott Street in Manhattan — was coming 175 Newark Avenue and {thankfully!} it’s bringing its cereal-inspired ice cream creations with it. Well, fast forward to May of 2020 and this highly-anticipated dessert shop is officially opening in JC this Thursday, May 28th, according to an Instagram announcement. Read on to learn all about Milk and Cream, making dessert out of breakfast in Jersey City.

About Milk and Cream

According to the website, Milk and Cream is a modern spin on a timeless classic. The store takes your traditional ice cream cone or cup of ice cream and flips on its head, adding all kinds of delicious, nostalgic-inducing cereals. From the looks of the 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 — and we can’t wait to see what it has in store this Thursday when it opens in JC.

Anyway, we haven’t even gotten to the Specials part of the menu yet. Milk and Cream’s Specials include a handful of signature combinations that are absolutely mouth-watering: Froot Berry Bliss, Apple Jack Avalanche, Cookie Crisp Carnival, just to name a few. And signature combos come in any form you like — swirl, milkshake, or cereal bowl.

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. Oh, and welcome to the neighborhood, Milke and Cream Bar — see you Thursday!
