One of the internet's most coveted dessert crazes is coming to the Bay area!
The doughnut ice cream cone- yes, that’s a thing- will soon be available at Datz Dough in south Tampa for a limited time.
The bakery’s general manager, Tina Contes, says her and her team decided to make the cones after something similar from a cafe out of Prague basically took over the internet.
“Since we make doughnuts and since we make fresh ice cream, we decided to make it as a challenge to ourselves,” said Contes.
But they aren’t just accepting the challenge; they plan to blow the original version- a simple cinnamon sugar-covered cone, topped with chocolate and stuffed with ice cream- out of the water.
The Datz Dough version, as Contes puts it best, will be “over-the-top, crazy, insane, huge.”
Sweets-lovers lucky enough to get their hands on one will enjoy a made-from-scratch doughnut cone that is lined with Nutella, filled with homemade jelly doughnut ice cream and then topped with bacon caramel popcorn, cotton candy, whipped cream and a cherry.
Contes says they will make at least 100 cones to be sold at $9 apiece, but the exact number beyond that has not been decided.
The sweet treats will hit the bakery display case starting this Thursday at noon, and will be sold until they run out.
