Desserts Galore!!

by jem614

I think I’ve been eating way too many sweets this week.  I figured I might as well put it out there and let you know what I think about them, maybe something good will come of an expanding waist size!

This amazing little moon pie was found at a the SW Ranches Farmers Market on 5150 S Flamingo Road (a really cute little organic market in West Broward).  It was DEEEELICIOUS!  It’s huge, don’t let the packaging fool you because it’s like an inch thick.  I’m sure it’s tons of calories but I didn’t feel a bit guilty.

Unfortunately, the only thing I could find online was located in Wyoming so it may be that the farm itself produces these.

Either way, they are worth the drive for this wholesome treat and Sheila, who runs the store, is so friendly and offered us a taste of her sweet blood oranges.  My first time trying them and they were so good and fresh but I have to admit I felt a little carnivorous.

I also took a picture of my Sweet and Sarah Brown Rice Crispy treat and another little chocolate and almond butter treat from a company I have not previously heard of but the file has gotten lost in space.  I will tell you that the S&S treat tasted exactly like the original-super sweet and sticky goodness!  The other one was tasty but more like something I could make at home and not have to pay almost $5 for.

And finally…..I’ve been wanting to post this review for a week because I had the most exciting, delicious Gelato the other day at the Food Truck rally in Plantation Woods Park!  OMG spicy!  It was Mexican chipotle gelato dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in pistachios (my own concoction).  I love that this food truck allows you to choose the dip and the crumples for your gelato and it’s the first time I’ve had gelato in bar form.  So much fun to eat and it tastes amazing! HipPops is the name of the truck so please follow them wherever they may lead you! http://www.hippops.com/

Have your cake and eat it too!  Just make sure you work out afterwards.

Dolci Peccati: Miami’s Sinfully Delicious, Non-Dairy Gelato on Wheels

Dolci Peccati, translating to sweet sins in Italian, is a Miami food truck specializing in gelato, the decadently sweet Italian ice cream. While the majority of their menu is sinfully filled with calories and dairy, they have a few heavenly non-dairy options that are great for vegans with a sweet tooth. This isn’t a new invention, non-dairy gelato has been in Southern Italy for centuries, generally called sorbetto. Fruit, ice and sugar mix to create a light, yet still indulgent dessert, and Dolci Peccati offers a few different flavors for sampling.

I tried the lemon, mint and ginger non-dairy gelato, which sounded so interesting. What amazed me at first glance was the obvious creaminess (maybe due to an addition of non-dairy milk?). The flavors were extremely bright, jumping right off the spoon onto my tongue. The ginger added an earthy sweetness, which combined perfectly with the tartness of the lemon and the herby sweet of the mint. My fiancé was impressed with how much better the non-dairy tasted versus his dairy-filled oreo gelato milkshake.

A pair of very sweet identical twin girls run the truck, which is clad in dark purple and black, and the girls wear matching purple outfits (when I visited, they had on super cute purple tutu’s). Prices are reasonable for gelato, at $ 4.50 per generous cup. They travel to most of the food truck meets in Miami, you can follow them on Twitter for location updates @gelatotruckmia.
