Reviving Friday links because I've spotted a ton of coverage on two of my favorite things: ice cream + doughnuts. I've been making my rounds to the many scoops shops that have popped up over the last year (see here and above) and still have plenty more on my summer bucket list, including Davey's in the East Village and A.B. Biagi for what sounds to be the most amazing ice cream sandwich known to man. Here's to a season of happy, sugar-fueled ice cream hunting!

Tasting Table's 13 favorite scoops include the funky (but delicious) concoctions at Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. and Bklyn Larder's dreamy fior di latte gelato.

There's a similar round-up over at Refinery 29 — they're also loving the newly-opened Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream (try the lemon-vanilla and red-raspberry sorbet together, trust me) and the always-satisfying Salty Pimp at Big Gay Ice Cream.

If you're looking for more than just a cone, Brooklyn Mag looks at five over-the-top sundaes that will satisfy all your sugar cravings.

It's National Doughnut Day, so amNY had staff choose their favorite fried and glazed treats. My picks: the honey-glazed at Donut Pub and café au lait at Dough.

Finally, Parade's got 13 pieces of little-known facts about the confection from yes, a doughnut book.
