Sugar Daddies

 

I’m a dessert dragon. Just like they hoard their gold, I hoard my sweets—and one is never enough. So two days after my rich strawberry and nutella crêpe, my sugar craving returned, and I skimmed through my new list for a satisfying solution. When my eyes stopped at “Sugar Daddies,” I called up my guy and asked if he was interested.

 

Already downtown and only a block or two away, he offered to take my order and stop by restaurant #23 for me before driving home. Swamped with papers to grade, I quickly agreed, and he knocked on the door 20 minutes later with a plastic cupcake box in hand.   Continue reading.

I nearly sprinted into Fluffy Donuts and pressed my nose flat up against the glass display case. With so many options—glazed, frosted, sprinkles, coconut, crumb, bar, twist, old-fashioned—I just couldn’t make up my mind… I wanted them all! But when a line began forming behind us, I played eenie-meanie-miney-mo and placed our order.   Continue reading.

The Candy House of Davis

June 17, 2012

 

I found heaven. Complete bliss. An absolute Eden. Although only stop #3 on my little food tour, the Candy House of Davis will most likely be my favorite place in the whole town.

 

Upon entering the shop, a subtle wave of chocolate poured over me, filling my nose with the tantalizing aroma of decadent treats. Handmade baby grand pianos, houses, bowls, and animal shapes—all out of chocolate!—filled the shelves, the mark of a true master chocolatier. Rows and rows of truffles, nut clusters, and festive molds lay in the display cases waiting to be eaten.   Continue reading.
