Aqui Es Santa Fe’s Color Wave Empanadas

32 Broad St, Port Chester; 914.305.1060

We always love a tasty empanada, but these bite-sized “color wave” iterations are as Instagrammable as they are delicious. Made with natural colorings like beet root extract, spinach concentrate, and cuttlefish/squid inks, these babies come in both traditional and inventive flavors like beef, chicken, cheese, cheese and guava, ham and pineapple, blueberry goat cheese, and more. $3.25 each (minimum order of 3) or $35 for a dozen

Beascakes’ Rainbow Mini-Donuts

575 Main St, Armonk; 914.273.3612

These adorable mini-donuts (not donut holes; those are separate) come filled or dipped in colorful icing and are eminently poppable, making them a perfect party purchase. If you want to grab a bunch for yourself though, we’re not going to judge. Just be sure to call in an order ahead of time. $1.50 each. (Pro-tip: Grab a couple of rainbow smiley face sugar cookies while you’re at it; $5 per cookie.)
