About your host

We believe that the best way to learn about a new city is to taste its food. You'll be led by one of us, all licensed NYC tour guides, Erin, Dionna, or Brendan. Erin believes every object has a story, & loves to share stories with the world! The best part of leading tours is watching a group of strangers become friends by the end of a tour. Brendan is a native New Yorker who loves to show off…

Tastings include…

What else you should know

You may want to eat a light meal before the experience—too much sugar on an empty stomach doesn't always feel good. Some tastings/flavors are pre-selected. Please alert us of allergies in advance.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
6 sweet tastings This experience includes six delicious tastings. Most guests will feel full by the end.

What to bring

Where you'll be

From Union Square through the East Village to Little Italy, we will visit some of the best shops in the city trying frozen treats from fruit pops to milk shakes and even rice pudding! You should expect to walk about 1.5 miles at a leisurely pace with opportunities to use the restroom and sit down. We pride ourselves on getting out off the beaten path and introducing guests to bakeries that even locals are sometimes surprised to learn of.
