Five Desserts Worth Skipping Dinner For

Make everything great in your world by going straight for one of these appetite-crushing monsters next time you eat out


Ice-Cream Doughnut


It feels wrong to call this a doughnut. Doughnuts are what people panic-buy at Tesco on their last day at a job. Stodgy bread-circles. This is a creamburger from the pudding Gods.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich


The American Dream in a sandwich. The one that inspires all the others. The one that killed Elvis.

Two slabs of peanut butter-flavoured ice cream, with cherry jam in the middle.

Deep-fried Oreos

Blues Kitchen

Another corruption of a once-innocent classic. Traditionally dunked in nutritious creamy milk, here Oreo cookies are taken totally off the rails. They’re deep-fried and served with a salted caramel dip. Unprecedented levels of gooeyness.
