I have to be honest with you. I don't think there is much more that I could add to this story than this: There is a magical place on the western fringes of Albany proper that serves soft serve ice cream inside a glazed doughnut -- and then rolls the whole thing in sprinkles.
Really? You're still reading? You need more details than that? (sigh) OK, let me share with you that which I have tasted.
And by the way, it's called The Slider, and it is from Kurver Kreme.
An ice cream stand of red and white
Offers a treat of messy delight.
Soft and doughy, cut in two,
Ice cream in a doughnut is delivered to you.
Is served as the bun for this slider kin;
The meat? Kurver soft-serve, placed within.
Choose whichever flavor you can get,
Like chocolate, vanilla, or orange sherbet.
This intersection of cream and yeast
Tastes like something from the East,
A Chinese treat served as dim sum
Called nai wong bao or custard buns!
The crackly glaze coats your palate
While the smooth ice cream chaser will corral it
Down your gullet, down your throat
As you sit in gluttonous glory and gloat.
Order is with sprinkles, chocolate or rainbow
To coat the outside of your near-nai wong bao.
For $3.95, why bother to choose?
Order it both ways... you can't lose.
An ice cream slider! Who would guess
To design such an appealing, delightful mess?
Does this not satisfy your sweet-tooth dream?
Order the glazer -- the same, but topped with whipped cream!
