King Oreo Puffle at Snowbots​

The puffle, one of the most Instagram-worthy desserts to come along in recent years, was inspired by a popular Hong Kong street food called gai daan jai (“little chicken eggs” in Chinese), a sweet egg-based waffle with pingpong ball-shaped puffs (think bubble wrap with big bubbles). 

Snowbots, a dessert and bubble tea shop on Rockville Pike, is the only place that offers puffles in Montgomery County, according to co-owner Keyur Lalani. Build your own by choosing from three puffles (plain, chocolate chip and red velvet), five ice creams (vanilla, chocolate, green tea, Oreo and strawberry) and several toppings and drizzles, such as Fruity Pebbles, Pocky sticks (long, chocolate-covered Japanese cookie sticks), brownies and chocolate syrup. Or skip the decision-making and order one of Snowbots’ five signature puffles. Chocoholics, go for the King Oreo—chocolate chip puffle with chocolate ice cream, Oreos, M&M’s and chocolate syrup. ($8.98 per puffle)

Snowbots, 1701 Rockville Pike, Rockville, 301-770-3593,
