Duh-nuh, duh-nuh, duh-nuh-duh-nuh-duhnuhduhnuuuuuh! Okay, so that attempt at typing out the Jaws theme may not be spot-on, but you get the idea. This week is SHARK WEEK, AKA the one time per year where we collectively gape at the ferociousness and sheer power of those toothy sea creatures and everyone with cable finds themselves flipping to the Discovery Channel.

Heck, we don’t even have cable, and I get psyched for Shark Week.

Pinterest is brimming with shark-themed desserts you can enjoy between binge-watching documentaries (real and fake), but when you’re midweek and it’s too hot to imagine turning on the oven, sometimes you just want someone else to do the Instagram-worthy work for you. We get it.

Here are the top treats you can’t miss out on:


Coldstone’s Shark Week Frenzy Ice Cream

It’s sweet cream ice cream, tinted blue, and swirled with graham cracker pie crust crumbles (mimicking sand) and gummy sharks. Coldstone sells ice cream-and-cake cupcakes topped with gummy sharks too, in case one frozen dessert isn’t enough.


Georgetown Cupcake’s Shark Week Cupcakes

Georgetown Cupcake‘s selling an awesome array of shark-themed cupcakes this week, from chocolate and red velvet cakes topped with a fondant shark fin to Triple Caramel Beach cupcakes with a “sandy” topping.


Dunkin’ Donuts’ Frosted Life Preserver Donuts

Dunkin’ Donuts will be selling red-and-white striped donuts, frosted to look like life preservers, as part of its Shark Week promotion. Dunkin’ is also encouraging people to share a photo of themselves digging into the treat, including #DDSharkWeekPromo. Your photo could appear on a billboard in Times Square or during Discovery’s Shark After Dark programming.



If all of these aquatic-themed desserts have you all riled up and ready to get your craft on, try these insanely easy Shark Week popsicles: All you need are shark gummies, Dixie Cups, popsicles (or plastic straws) and blue Gatorade.
