Almost all of us, even many of the most adamant McDonalds haters, crave a Shamrock Shake from time to time.
But within the thriving Columbus food scene, there’s a myriad of other fantastic St. Patrick’s Day desserts that are just as delicious and just as festive. From cakesicles to Irish Cream donuts and more, you can dig into seasonal treats that one-up your favorite childhood milkshake, all while supporting the local businesses you love.

As if rich, decadent mochi donuts weren’t good enough, this unique Columbus home bakery is launching an entire box of St. Patty’s Day goodies early this month. This will include a Lucky Charms cereal donut, an Irish Cream donut, and even one with a pot of gold theme, meaning it will include chocolate and gold flake. These will be available for pickup and delivery on March 13 and 20, with pre-orders for this box beginning here on March 3.
This Upper Arlington bakery has been serving up some of the best cookies and cakes in the Columbus area since 1958, and there’s no reason to think that would change for St. Patrick’s Day. This year, they’ll be releasing a fun line of green shamrock cutout cookies, St. Patrick’s Day’s brownies and cupcakes, decorated buckeyes, and even authentic Irish soda bread.
Meet Leprechauns Juice, a wildly indulgent milkshake highlighted by decadent flavors of chocolate and mint. It even comes complete with an entire brownie and cupcake perched atop the glass. This one’s only available at their Reynoldsburg location from Feb 6 through March 17, so don’t wait. Sugar Rush is also offering 12-piece holiday mystery boxes—featuring a random assortment of cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, and more—for only $25.
While this small speciality bakery is offering everything from green hot chocolate bombs to green, chocolate-covered oreos and chocolate-dipped pretzels, what we really want to highlight are their cakesicles. These indulgent cake pops are served on a popsicle stick and coated in a festive outer shell that makes their resemblance to a popsicle uncanny. The only difference: These are made of vanilla and chocolate cake filling. Make sure to get your orders in by March 12.
This super-popular home bakery is coming your way with a St. Patrick’s Day cookie box filled with a host of sweets you won’t want to miss. Their Pot of Gold box contains traditional rainbow cookies (normally red, white, and green), with green, white, and green layers of almond cake, sandwiched together with apricot jam and topped with white chocolate drizzle. Additionally, the holiday box will contain rainbow and pot-of-gold themed cookies, and even chocolate stout cookies.
