Humpty Dumplings' Cheesecake Dumpling

Fuse.tv

Fun fact: I don't like cheesecake! But I decided to step outside my comfort zone to see what Humpty Dumplings had to offer at Firefly Music Fest 2017. There was a cheesecake dumpling that my friend (and Fuse social media manager Brooke Bunce) said reminded her of a dessert from Applebee's. That restaurant can do no wrong in my eyes, so I stepped in line to try it out. Yet as soon as I bit into the chewy fried dumpling donut, I had a feeling this wasn't for me. The filling was too rich and it would've been better if there were bits of fresh fruit combined inside.—Bianca Gracie

Sweet Tooth's Root Beer Float

Call me simple, but put ice cream and soda (I call it "pop") together and I'm there. On a muggy Friday at Firefly Festival, a scoop of pure vanilla ice cream dunked in a tall glass of root, topped with a generous pile of whipped cream (from the can, none of that fancy homemade stuff) and a bright red maraschino cherry was everything I could have wanted in life. The satisfying combination was finished within 5 minutes.—Brooke Bunce

The Loving Cup's Butterbeer Frappé

Getting this ice-cold frappé on Saturday, the hottest day of the festival, was the best decision I could ever make in that moment. The Loving Cup's treat had the perfect blend of bitter coffee and sugary sweetness from the toffee/caramel syrup that cured all my sweaty woes. Plus the generous dollop of fresh whipped cream didn't hurt either!—Bianca Gracie

Sweet Tooth's S'mores Nachos

Fuse.tv

I'm a HUGE sucker for chocolate and would be willing to try almost anything covered in its ooey-gooey goodness. So when I saw that Sweet Tooth was selling s'mores nachos, I made a run for it! It was rich perfection, with the incredible combination of melted chocolate, marshmallows, crushed Oreos and peanut better which was placed atop graham crackers. Yes please!—Bianca Gracie

Lil Pop Shop's Strawberry Rhubarb & Rosé Lemonade Popsicles

Fuse.tv

The temperature at Firefly this year was at devilish levels, which called for anything frozen. You could tell these popsicles were made with fresh ingredients that made you feel better about eating something so indulgent. The combination of succulent berries and tart rhubarb, as well as bubbly rosé wine and crisp lemonade, was the best cure for the heat.—Bianca Gracie

Coolhaus' Ice Cream Sandwich

Fuse.tv

When the temperatures at the fest rocketed to 90 degrees, all my body wanted was to cool down in any way possible. Enter Coolhaus, the LA-based ice cream company known for their "sammies," or ice cream sandwiches. The Coolhaus truck, nestled next to the Coffeehouse Stage, allowed festivalgoers to choose what kind of cookie they wanted hugging their choice of ice cream. I decided to be sophisticated in hopes that it would distract people from the layer of sweat and grime covering my body; I went with double chocolate cookies and balsamic fig mascarpone ice cream. Despite the treat melting into a puddle in maybe 60 seconds flat, it was still one of the best things I ate at Firefly.—Brooke Bunce

Frank Ocean's Summer Memories

In the new issue of i-DFrank Ocean shares dozens of photos that documents a busy summer filled with festivals, rehearsals and friends. "Summer two thousand and seventeen. We leaned into it. Bananaberry flavored candies at the bottom of the cup. I'll never know why or what's with campouts for Szechuan sauce at McDonalds," his essay reads. "But I'm way into it. Issa Dreamworld. If you liked two thousand and seventeen then you'll love two thousand and eighteen."
