Eat a Donut Ice Cream Sammy in Honor of National Donut Day

We've already told you about our favorite donuts in L.A., and even organized an event around eating them all in a 24 hour time period. So on this National Donut Day, we're going to highlight just one single donut that will make you swoon.

No, it's not a cronut. (Sorry, the ones we Tweeted about at Cook's County won't be available. Ever. Pastry chef Roxana Jullapat thinks it's a big ol' waste of time. She did an expert job at recreating the croissant/donut hybrids, but we have to agree with her when she said that it all just seemed to be "too much.") Rather, the crave-worthy donut du jour is the ice cream sandwich at CoolHaus in Culver City. The sandwich is a collaboration between Donut Snob, also one of our faves, and the food-truck/ice cream shop. It's made from a halved Madagascar vanilla glazed donut that's stuffed with a scoop of your choice of ice cream. (They suggest coffee.) It's $5 and will only be available today.

Get 'em while they're cold.
