So you have a crazy sweet tooth but the town that you live in doesn’t have quite the right selection to satisfy your sugar-addicted palette. What’s a sweet-lover to do? Invent a new kind of candy that takes the world by storm and makes you a billion dollars?
Well, yeah you should do that if you think you can, but if you’re not the new Elon Musk of sweets then why not travel to a city that’s known for its delectable treats? That way you don’t have to invent anything, all you have to do is go to the store and ask for more, please.
We talked to our colleagues and compiled a list of our favorite cities that are chock full of sweets so you can satisfy your sweet tooth while on a lovely vacation.
OCEAN CITY, NEW JERSEY
Ocean City is known for its historic boardwalk which has a bunch of different shops that sell all the sweets you could imagine. From ice cream to fudge to taffy you will find it all in spades at the Ocean City boardwalk. Bakeries, candy shops, and ice cream parlors will leave you foaming at the mouth and you’ll be in a sugar coma in no time. But don’t worry, if you need to get your salt levels up then just hop in the ocean and take a few swallows. Now your salt and sugar levels are balanced out. Is that how it works? We have no idea, we’re not scientists.
ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO, CANADA
If you love donuts then St. Catharines is the place you have got to see. This place has the most donut shops in the world, so bring a big appetite and some waist-expanding pants. You can put down dozen after dozen of donuts and never eat the same one twice. One store alone offers up to 20 different donuts each day. So expand your donut mind while stuffing your face. Donuts are heavenly and so is St. Catharines.
Ever heard of Swiss chocolate? Yeah, we thought so. Now you know why Zurich is on this list. Zurich is a town that is practically covered in chocolate. You won’t need your swiss army knife to get your sweet tooth covered here. On every corner, you will find truffles for sale. Whether you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate it doesn’t matter, you will find exactly what you are looking for. If you’re a chocoholic and you’re looking to binge then head straight to Zurich.
LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA
The home of Snoop Dogg is also home to the ice cream capital. Residents in this city eat more ice cream than any other city in the USA. Now that’s a lot of ice cream! You can find the regular flavors everywhere, or you can experiment with new ones like goat cheese whiskey fig ice cream or salted caramel fudge. No matter what kind of ice cream you want, you’ll find mounds of it in the LBC. Now that’s what I call Sublime.
