A Sweet Tooth in Europe

Before I left on my trip, I wasn’t really a sweets person. I freakin’ drink kale smoothies! But when I went on this trip, that all was blown out of the window. I’m 99.9% sure I ate my body weight in sugar while I was gone. But that’s sort of the point right? Gelato, cannolis and everything pistachio flavored in Rome, pastries and macarons like crazy in Paris, Venice and their candy stores, Lisbon and the amazing Pastéis de Belém, nutella on pretty much everything. But oh. It was SO worth it.


When we were in Rome, we saw a stand for these MASSIVE sugar donuts, with the option to add Nutella. Naturally, we went for it. Amazing.


Johnny and I had a vote, and this ricotta cheesecake we had in Rome was HANDS DOWN the best thing we ate in Europe. I’ll never look at cheesecake the same again.


If you are ever in Paris, you must go to Synie’s Cupcakes. Trust me.


Tarte au citron? Yes, please!


And of course, the famous Pastéis de Belém. They are a sweet custard pastry and absolutely heavenly. Johnny and I had way more than our fair share of these when we were in Portugal.

I feel like I need a sugar detox just revisiting all of these photos! What is your favorite type of international dessert?
