Your Ultimate Summer Guide for Sweet Treats in Fort Worth!

by Taylor-

Your summer won’t be the same without these daring delectable desserts.

Ah summer is here. I’ve honestly had a ‘Come To Jesus’ moment and accepted that my summer body will be on hold until next year (#ThirstTrappinAllSummer18). Don’t get me wrong, I’m still working out regularly. I lost 5 pounds since last week and continuously going down; Pro Dance Teams, I’m comin for ya! But until I get washboard abs, I might as well indulge in my sinful finds!

I wrote an article in my early days of blogging that one of my biggest goals for 2017 was to explore every corner of Dallas-Fort Worth. I’ve already reviewed the Top 5 Taco Shops in FTW, so it’s good to take on a new list. Anyone who knows me know that I have a REALLY bad sweet tooth! So of course I had to investigate for..blogging purposes.


Melt Ice Cream:

If you’re in the mood for some light but flavor filled ice cream, look no further! Melt Ice Cream is definitely the place to check out to fulfill your sweet tooth!  My absolute favorite is the Vanilla Bean scoop with LAVENDER whipped cream! I’ve only been twice, but as time progresses, I’m going to be more open to trying the unique flavors they have to offer! Oh, and did I mention? They have vegan options too!

FunkyTown Donuts:

Each donut is unique and crafted to perfection! Perfect start to your weekend mornings before hitting the museums! But please be aware of its hours! It’s open from 6 a.m. – 1 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Sunday.

Savor Pâtisserie

I recently started buying macaroons regularly from bakeries to satisfy the little French girl in me; so to know there’s a Macaroon-only bakery in Fort Worth, just made me elated. Flavors range from honey (with the cutest bee decor) to lavender, garnished with fresh lavender herb to top off the buttery flavor. I personally recommend purchasing the 15 count simply because it’s so hard to put them down!

Whether it’s frozen, baked or whipped, these daring treats will compliment the Texas heat this summer! Did I miss your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

    A donut with bacon on it?! Listen. You’re trying to get me caught up. I don’t need it but it’s a must that I get that before the year is up.

    I worked at a mini donut shoppe and we had a breakfast one that had bacon, eggs and maple syrup. I nearly killed myself eating them. I love sweets!

    As im trying to stay away from sweets, you show me several yummy treats. I love the way macaroons look, they are pretty. The donuts look great as well. I normally don’t try different types, (I am old fashion donut type of girl)

    The donuts look amazing. I must admit I’m on a no-added sugar plan right now. But maybe worth the indulgence after the challenge is over!
