New York’s undergone a bit of an ice cream–cake renaissance this year, but you’ll still need to trek to the outer boroughs to plant your candles if you want something far more epic than Fudgie the Whale (and trust us, you do).

Pop! and Stumptown-infused Coffee Toffee Coffee are packed with Carvel-shaming crunchies, like Rice Krispies clusters and homemade butter toffee, between expanses of brownie, hot fudge, and caramel.
