You can put a lot of things into ice cream to make it even better, like whiskey or pretzels or your face. Companies like Ben & Jerry's have carved out a little niche for themselves by adding things like brownies and cookie bits to their creations, but now NYC has their own home-grown version with two new babka/ice cream flavor collaborations between powerhouse ice cream makers Ample Hills and powerhouse porchetta makers Mekelburg's.

The duo made the new ice creams using Mekelburg's super tasty babkas, picking up where Ample Hills left off with the matzo ice cream. Babka Days Are Here Again is a vanilla base with chunks of the cinnamon babka and I Love It When You Call Me Big Babka is a milk chocolate base with pieces of chocolate babka. The twisted cake remains astonishingly airy given its submersion into frozen cream, maintaining the crispy layers of dough throughout the freezing process.

The restaurant sold around 300 pints this weekend as part of their one year anniversary celebrations.

Mekelburg's is selling the creation at its Clinton Hill digs in pints ($12.95) for off-site consumption—and soon they'll launch online sales—though you'd be a fool to miss out on the restaurant's excellent food and beer in addition to their backyard.

We're told they're also using the babka ice creams as a base for a banana split as soon as their special ice cream boats arrive in the mail. It'll be a base of thin cut slices of chocolate babka topped with a mix of both babka ice creams with bananas, of course.
