What Diet? This New Bakery Serves Fruity Pebbles Donuts


If you're watching what you eat, it's time to avert your eyes. We just got word that Bowery hotspot The General opened up a brand new sweet shop, and the menu is all kinds of tempting. For starters, baristas will be serving up Stumptown's Hair Bender coffee, along with savory bites like pretzel bombs — a pocket of deliciousness filled with egg, cheese, and ham.

But, the true star of the menu is the line of cereal-inspired donuts. Yes, you read that right...cereal-inspired donuts. Pastry Chef Thiago Silva created hybrid treats like Coco Puffs with Coco Cream and Fruity Pebbles with Cereal Milk. Think of them as a full-on flashback to childhood, in the most delicious way. Luckily, there are several gyms within walking distance.
