Sweet Paris

So I have travel many places and I can say that Paris most definitely had the best pastries/desserts.

Of course I tried Crème brûlée <3 I have had it before but it wasn’t as delicious as this :) The custard had just enough vanilla to give it the right amount of flavor and the crunchy delicious sugar on top was caramelized to perfection.

So I know this isn’t the best picture (I apologize!) But it was one of the best things I ate in Paris! So in the bakery they have lots of different kinds of mini tartlets! The one on the left was a lemon custard, it was tangy and sweet and very fresh tasting! The ones on the right were AWESOME. Walnuts in a caramel mixture topped with cranberries <3 To die for! Also the actual tart crust on the these had great flavor and weren’t overcooked :)

Chocolate Mousse! This desserts can often be bland if not done right but this mousse was like a ridiculous chocolate explosion!!! Of course it still had its nice light and fluffy texture along with the chocolate creaminess! <3

Oooh Belgium Waffles!

So I took a trip to Brussels, Belgium! And what was one of the top things on my list to try??? WAFFLES! :D …So you think you like waffles right? Those gross flavorless sponge things? …well these waffles are nothing like that! Why am I so excited!? lol

Well, this is the first waffle I tried! (and the best!) so they pour the batter in fresh, or used a recently made waffle and heat it up in the waffle iron. Then it comes out all hot and chewy and FULL of flavor! Seriously, this thing did not need the chocolate stuff. The flavor was sweet and very vanilla-ey. Just a perfect balance <3

 

 

 

 

 

There are an endless amount of toppings! Ice cream being one of the most popular. Also fresh strawberries and whipped cream :)

There are several different kinds of waffles too! This was much lighter and fluffy. The flavor was also a bit more subtle.

Anywhoooo, if you ever make it to Belgium…TRY THE WAFFLES.

Gelato and Stuff

Gelatooooo timeeeee :D

Soooooo, I tried some great gelato while I was in Florence! The real deal, not touristy stuff. It was stored traditionally in the metal bin thingys in the counter, not in a display case. The colors were pale and  not fluorescent so you knew the ingredients were real :D (Contrary to popular belief, gelato should NOT be piled high and should be dull in color)
I had FOUR different flavors lol. White chocolate strawberry, passion fruit, coffee and vanilla mint (The mint was so fresh tasting, quite a new experience!). This was some seriously good stuff! The flavors were so vibrant tasting! .

 

I also had Gelato in Pisa…not as great but still good :) I had strawberry

 

Next was chocolate! Pralines to be exact, extremely creamy stuff! My favorite was the hazelnut with cracked pepper on top. The pepper was a genius addition to the chocolate! They complimented each other so well! 

 

The view at the chocolate shop!

Food Review: Kinder Choco Fresh

 

Chocolate Duck FTW!

So for easter this year I received a chocolate duck! Cool right? But I’m not really a fan of chocolate or…I wasn’t till I moved to Germany! This duck was a german product <3 ….and it was super delicious! The chocolate is so smooth and not packed full of gross fakey stuff like Hershey’s! I didn’t know what chocolate was supposed to taste like till I had the real stuff… I wish everyone could try it!

Also! If there are any specific food reviews you would like just let me know :)
