Sometimes we all need a little sweetness in our lives. The comfort of fudge and caramel, the classic colors in your Halloween bag. Your study snack, you birthday splurge. A Kinder Bueno bar from England, Tim Tams from Australia. Matcha and Cheesecake Kit Kats from Hong Kong. White Rabbit from China. Brigadeiro, anybody? Mochi, mooncakes, and Mars bars, oh my! Portuguese custard tarts, churros, chimney cakes and stroopwafel. Tiramisu for me, and gelato for you. One scoop or two?
I suppose I should say that the real treat is sharing the best finds from around the world with friends and family. But have you ever had fresh pain au chocolat from a Parisian bakery? It is really hard to top that.
