Hollywood blvd has been talking a big talk about the Sweet Spot for a while now. This place was under construction for months. Finally I get my ass through the doors and see why the hold up. There is literally a 10 ft long wall full of toffees of various flavors. Flavors such as, popcorn, breakfast, red velvet, cheese cake, caramel apple, apple pie, cotton candy, the list goes on. I was extremely pleased with my experience there. And no, the place isn’t just full of crazy flavored toffee, it’s got all your standard chocolates and gummies, as well as vintage candies and foreign candies. The Sweet Spot also does one of my favorite things, pricing all the candies the same so you can just grab a candy bag and go crazy.
The Sweet Spot
You are looking at Baskin Robbins giving the middle finger to Sprinkles Ice Cream Parlor. Baskin Robbins who is already feeling the wrath of the frozen yogurt trend, now has to deal with cupcake shops stepping on their turf. Clearly they got wind of Sprinkles red velvet cone, so they stepped up and created the wild berry cone. Big up to Baskin Robbins. Don’t go down without a fight.
Okay this is fucking beautiful. The only thing I don’t like about this is that I didn’t invent it first. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that any flat piece of food can assist in making an ice cream sandwich. So why didnt I think of this. Whatever, big up to Carl sr for creating Carl jr who in turn created this concoction.
Have you ever been to Lemonade? Google maps it and if a location is within 2 hours away from you, go. If I have already convinced you to go with just that one sentence than a) I have achieved my goal of being a food guru and b) I need to mentally prepare you for what is to come. You will feel like you just went to a family gathering, minus the mayo based macaroni salad. Thats right skinnies, all bitches on diets are welcome. When I am thinking thin I go and harass the staff about what is in what, and let me assure you, the ingredients are safe. You are probably wondering why you are starring at a piece of pink cake then. Well, as many of you know I like to follow up my greens with cakes and candies. If you are the same breed of human as I am, then Lemonade is the place for you. They have a phenomenal dessert section, consisting of such masterpieces as, jumbo size macaroons, pink lemonade cake (featured above), butterscotch pudding, and obviously the standards flavors of cupcakes are all present.
I trust many of you are already 15 mins deep into your commute to Lemonade.
So it was about time that I got my beautifully manicured hands on the new flavors of Lays. Any day now these are going to be a distant memory from our past. Only one flavor will be selected to become a Lays flavor.
Being that I am a sugar addict, I preferred the Chicken and Waffles Flavor. A nice hint of syrup, yum. The Cheesy Garlic Bread did its job though. That shit tasted on point. Well done Lays.
3 birthdays I look forward to: Mine, Jesus’ and Oreo’s
These motherfuckers have literally ruined my ass but at the same time made my week. I have consumed 6 boxes within one week. of course I had help, so refrain from starting rumors of me having a binging disorder (I have a binging disorder).
Its a new week and I am cutting these out of my life, for as long as I can. These are apparently limited edition from what I have learned through research.. so I hope they keep their marketing promise and fucking go away. Slash don’t leave, birthday oreos, I love you.
Back in Toronto for a minute. Hit up Glory Holes (obviously) this is their new flavor of donut, called ‘Milk and Cereal’.
Although I love Glory Holes, and they started from the bottom now they here, yadda yadda.. they have really changed. They went from having these petite donuts with much attention put on the toppings. NOW they have a whole lot of donut, and little toppings. I can’t get passed the donut being gigantic and tasting like a role of bread. I hope this is just a phase. I will keep you posted next time I drop in for a donut.
