Busy Bee (above):

The only way to improve vanilla custard mixed with fresh strawberry puree? By adding a crumbled Bee Sting bar from Georgetown’s Baked & Wired. Made from shortbread, sliced almonds and honey, the baked good gives the concrete some bite.

Vanilla custard is blended with bananas, caramel sauce and honey graham crackers from Pollystyle, a D.C.-based confection company. Five percent of sales from this concrete will go to Casey Trees, a local nonprofit that restores trees and promotes planting in the District.

Shake Shack, 50 Massachusetts Ave. NE; 202-648-2428, (Union Station)
