I love trying new food or in this case, sweets.
While in Boston, I seen two women eating delicious cupcakes. My first reaction was to approach them and ask, “where did you get these from?” *walks over as I drool* I seen “Sweet” from afar on the box and did a reverse step. I thought to myself, “I can Google this place”. Second internal voice, “this place has got to be close by because those attractive looking bites were still fully formed”, the third voice that I try to silo (my way of saying silence) “Destiny, you don’t need them!” *sad face*
Did I start to find this place and go in route? Nope. I just kept walking and not in the fun way like when Dori says, just keep swimming. I was walking WITHOUT being on a trip for cupcakes. How could I let this happen?
As I walked further along, I ran into a pretty pink place. I noticed some cakes on the outside. *mouth waters* Wait! Are those cupcakes? Is this “Sweet”? *looks up* OMGEE – It’s meant to be!
I go in and look at all of the endless flavors and honestly I’m having a difficult time deciphering. Where should I start? Are there samples? *laughs* Heck no! I knew not to ask. The Sister was so sweet haha she was nice. By the time I asked her fifty questions about three different flavors, I decided to buy the root beer float and guess what she’s like “I already gave you that one. I’m giving you three.” Say what? How SWEET! So now, I pick the one to actually purchase and my choice was pink lemonade.
For once, honestly I can’t believe the choices I was picking. I typically play it safe when it comes to eating desserts because of pork-by-products, but I was trusting that everything was good for the body and buds.
Honestly, although the Sister let me know they weren’t sweet, I still imagined them being too sweet to bear. But they weren’t and I don’t eat overly sugary things. So trust me.
The cupcakes are the best. They’re moist and soft. Gluten-free. She wasn’t able to confirm if they were gelatin or lard-free, but these babies are bomb. Plus, after days later, they still tasted fresh!
I would go back to Boston just for the cupcakes. I’m kinda upset that after three years of sporadically going to Massachusetts, I never had this place. But the next time someone comes from Boston or that I go, either that someone is bringing me some or I’m making a trip.
If you’re there get you some and let me know what you think about the flavors you explore. Apparently they swap them out like soup of the day! *smiles showing all teeth* That’s how happy they made me.
The Flavors I Had
Root beer float: This was good. It didn’t have a strong taste that reflected pop (soda), but I got the concept that they were going for. I loved the look with the straw and drops of root beer.
The Sister shared that this is the least favored after asking about the popular ones. I could tell this one wasn’t because there were so many left, but that didn’t turn me away. I still gave it a try and would have it again.
Peach cobbler: Similar to above, there was peach filler in the middle of it. I would pass on this one.
Pink lemonade: The Sister said this one was her favorite and it’s also mine. I would go back for this time after time. And the straw again was a nice addition!
