Stogo Turns Me into Some Kind of Salivating at the Case Sampler

I try not to take advantage of the "sample all you want" concept. It's very filling. What do I do at Capogiro? Well, don't gasp, but I'm not a huge fan of dairy. That's why I went to Stogo.

At Stogo, the dairy-free ice cream parlor in the East Village, I pointed at the ever-popular salted caramel pecan and took a stab at the cookie dough. I was only tasting around, though, because I knew I was gunning for the spelt red velvet cake.

It's got BabyCakes cupcakes in it (also sold at the store). How could I not spoon with that?

The ice cream here is quite impressive, made of soy, coconut, or hemp base. The texture is much thicker than regular ice cream, with more of a mousse-like consistency.  This one made me want a cupcake, which I denied until much later at the actual BabyCakes. They were out of Red Velvet, though, so I chose gluten-free vanilla. I also got to sample a BabyCakes doughnut, which now makes it even harder to make a decision from the pastry case there.
