Milky Treats, an ice cream shop that will stuff its offerings into doughnuts, will open its doors in Plano next month.
The new sweet shop will occupy a space at 7000 Independence Parkway in Plano in a shopping center anchored by Kroger. Ice cream will, of course, be a focus for the shop, but the main ingredient in Milky Treats’ recipe is cereal, which means infusing Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Cruch into ice cream with a custom-built, “aeronautic-grade” blender that creates a more deep, intense flavor.
“I think there’s something about cereal that brings back a happy and nostalgic feeling to all generations, so we decided one day during our lunch break that we would create an ice cream shop that was focused around everyone’s favorite childhood treat but wanted to make sure that it was served in a modern, energetic, and fun atmosphere,” owners Nico Nguyen and Karmen Lau told Eater.
The ice cream at Milky Treats is served in a couple of different ways — the “milky swirl” is cereal-infused vanilla soft serve, and the “milky doughnut” is pretty self-explanatory — a scoop of ice cream is stuffed into a doughnut (glazed or non-glazed, for folks who are inexplicably watching their sugar intake) that’s been pressed and warmed. In addition to the basic vanilla, 15 different flavors of ice cream will rotate frequently. When the shop opens, flavors like salty toffee and “unicorn brownie” will be on offer, along with Thai iced tea, coffee, and ube.
Milky Treats is expected to make its debut on July 7.
