If you’re looking for a chance to relive your childhood love affair with dessert, The Crispery and Momofuku Milk Bar are cooking up nostalgia in Roslyn, Long Island and New York City. The Crispery offers 14 different types of Rice Krispie Treats including smores-filled and chocolate cookie-filled versions, each one oozing with sticky marshmallow . Momofuku Milk Bar takes things up a notch with their Candy Bar Pie, featuring the best of all things peanut butter, caramel, toffee, pretzel, and cookie. Both were delicious but only one will make your wallet AND your stomach happy…

You can’t really go wrong with a Rice Krispie treat, especially one that’s cut in half and stuffed with chocolate cookies and extra marshmallow fluff. The Crispery’s treats stayed remarkably fresh over the course of a week, a testament to the secret recipe, containing no butter or trans fat, and the marshmallow within. The flavor’s not as authentic as Mom’s but it’s pretty close and at $2.95 for one massive treat, how can you complain?

Imagine this: a pretzel topped chunky peanut butter Reese’s cup gives way to salty-sweet caramel studded with bits of crunchy toffee, all supported by a chocolate cookie crust. It’s a balanced texture and flavor adventure. Thank you David Chang, Christina Tosi & Marian Mar for making dreams a reality. But almost $5.50 for a tiny sliver of this deliciousness? That’s a little exorbitant.
You’ve been forewarned fellow eaters, the portion size of the Candy Bar Pie does not match the price. You owe it to yourself, however, to at least give it a try because in the end, I don’t know where you’re finding anything this decadent, delicious and unique for this price.
