Get ready for something sweet—really, really sweet.
Michael Lastoria, CEO of the DC-based &pizza chain, and Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi have joined forces for a mashup that may just kill your molars: a cereal milk cream soda cookie, which you can chase with a cereal milk cream soda.
“It feels like something you know, but something that you can’t quite describe,” says Tosi, a Northern Virginia native.
The combo—available beginning April 18—will be offered at all &pizza locations. The vanilla cookie ($1.25) is baked with white-chocolate chips, milk, corn flakes, brown sugar, and a touch of salt. The cookie is also made with marshmallows, giving it a rice-krispy-treat-like flavor. It’s designed to taste like the milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl, but with an added “soda fizz.” (Because what eight-year-old hasn’t wished for cereal and soda?). Curbing the sugar rush is the fact that it’s only bite-sized.
As for the “cereal milk” soda ($2.75), there’s no actual milk (or dairy, or caffeine) in the drink, and it’s made with cane sugar. It tastes exactly how it’s supposed to: like a mix of the liquid that’s left over after you eat Frosted Flakes and a can of A&W. It’s not bad, per se, but we also can’t imagine functioning like rational humans after downing all 16 ounces.
