It’s tough to say who’s having a better start to 2015: Danny Meyer or Christina Tosi. As acknowledged earlier this week, the latter has a lot going on — a MasterChef judging gig, a new cookbook, and a Momofuku Milk Bar pop-up in Madison Square Park — and now she’s gone and changed up the menus at each Milk Bar location.

Here’s the lineup for February: Rosemary Salted Caramel (East Village), Maple Cream-Cheese (midtown), Orange Clove (Upper West Side), Peanut Butter Banana (Carroll Gardens), the grand return of Crack Pie (Williamsburg), and Birthday Cake (Soho).

To make the flavor, milk gets steeped with actual vanilla cake — the same that’s used in Milk Bar’s Birthday Cake truffles. And of course it’s finished with a rainbow-sprinkle topping for full nostalgic effect.
