Milk Bar’s Crack Pie is called “Crack Pie,” not because it contains crack (that would be very illegal), but because it’s so good that it’s addictive. Just like crack. That stuff will kill you.

Now, the New York-based bakery and dessert shop is mixing one addictive food with another—coffee—to create a craveable new line of beverages, available beginning Tuesday, February 27th, at all Milk Bar locations.

Milk Bar unveiled images of the three new beverages on Tuesday morning with a gif posted to its Instagram account. Three new dessert-inspired coffees will include a Crack Pie latte, a B’Day latte and a Cereal Milk latte, so lovers of over-the-top coffee in NYC, DC, Vegas and Toronto will be able to get their fix ASAP.

The Crack Pie latte is, as describes the company on its website, “classic gooey butter and toasted oat pie reimagined in latte form.” The latte is made with brown sugar and a corn powder ganache.

The Cereal Milk latte was already available to those who knew about it, according to the New York Daily News, but now it’s an official menu item. Espresso gets mixed with Cereal Milk to make this one, giving it the flavors of coffee along with the bottom of a bowl of sweet cereal.

The B’Day Latte was inspired by Milk Bar’s funfetti cakes, which feature owner Christina Tosi’s signature “naked cake” style. The latte is made with the very same Cereal Milk, but features rainbow sprinkles and vanilla cake flavoring.

These lattes will be available in three different sizes, priced from $4 to $6 dollars.
