There are many people who eat their way around the world. Trust me, if I could do that, I would not only be able to fit in this chair, I would have to be rolled out of the office Willy Wonka-style. It’s self-explanatory as to why food is so crucial to traveling. For one thing, eating is essential to living (there’s Biology 101, for ya), but most importantly food is an experience that’s shared with your fellow travelers. Whether you’re eating at a swanky restaurant in Paris or on a patio in Greece, food creates an occasion that enriches your travels and can make memories of a lifetime.
I asked the office what are their favorite desserts (that’s the best part of the meal!) from around the world or even in their own backyard (Atlanta).
Kinder Eggs by flexyournoggin
“I went to Germany once when I was about 10 years old with my family. In Germany, they had these small chocolate eggs that had little toys you could put together inside called Kinder Eggs (made by the Italian company Ferrero). The chocolate tastes different from most American brands. I’m not sure about the confection details, but I loved the mix of white chocolate and milk chocolate. I hope I can get another one of those Kinder Eggs if I can visit Germany again someday.” – Lauren
I swear I have seen this kind of chocolate somewhere in the Georgia! Calling all chocoholics, now is the time to unite and find these little goodies for Lauren!
“My favorite dessert memory was in Positano, Italy on the Amalfi Coast. We were in a little bakery with all homemade desserts, and I saw this beautiful cannoli dipped in chocolate. It was SOOO YUMMY! The views of the beach, ocean, old world buildings, and the fresh sea breeze were absolutely fabulous as we sat on the patio eating our dessert and drinking cappuccino.” – Kathy
“Carnegie Deli in New York had some great food. The cheesecake was exquisite. It was the best I’ve ever had. That is one thing I loved about New York City – the food was great everywhere you went, even the hot dog vendors were good.” – Michael
Welsh cakes by Jennz World
“My ex-mother-in-law was from Wales and she made these often and they are really delicious. It’s more like a cookie, but it’s called a Welsh cake. I’ve never seen them in the US… not even in the Northeast bakeries.” – Janice
“I went to Italy for a week in December last year and there was this gelato shop in the fashion district that was really good. I wish I could remember the flavor or the name of the shop! It had the vibe of a Starbucks.” – Ellarie
“One of my favorite dessert memories was from England when my friends and I went to an Italian restaurant on Little Clarendon Street. My friend and I got two different desserts. I forgot what I ordered, but I remember I almost finished my friend’s panna cotta. It was smooth and so silky, I almost took her plate. It was a wonderful night out with friends and a wonderful dessert.” – Kris
