Steve O’s Public House – Rolled Ice cream Waffle Taco

This is taking ice cream to a whole new level! It’s everyone’s favorite summer treat… ice cream in a waffle cone, but with a new fun twist. Not only is the ice cream rolled and mixed with your favourite toppings like Oreo, Skor, Strawberries, and many more… it’s also in a waffle cone shaped as a taco shell, to make the delicious and new WAFFLE TACO!

WOK this Way – Oreo Rice Pudding

Oreo is such a huge treat that it’s been fused with Asian flare. Rice is first cooked in coconut milk to first give it the sweetness and tropical Asian twist. Then Oreos are placed into the rice, and mixed up to add that dessert element to this. East meets West: Oreo Rice Pudding.

Funnel Cakes – Deep Fried Jello

Just when you thought there was something we couldn’t deep fry… We did this.
