Let’s be honest with ourselves, we’ve all cheated on our diet before. Even those with the strongest sense of self control might succumb to a sweet treat or savoury snack every now and again. The good part is, there’s nothing wrong with that! Everyone needs a cheat day now and again, but a common dilemma for most people is picking which treat they want to eat on that day. So, to help you out with this highly anticipated time, here are some unique treats around The 6ix that you have to try.
Cookies From Craig’s Cookies
It seems like nowadays that there’s so many staple desserts. From cheesecake to donuts and ice cream to chocolate, the list goes on and on. However, it seems like that the cookie has fallen short of this list and is considered more of a snack than a dessert. Well, that’s all about to change. The gourmet cookies from Craig’s Cookies have completely changed the game. These sizeable treats come in an abundance of famous flavours, like Mini Eggs, Brownie and Ferrero Rocher. There are multiple locations around the city where you can find these outstanding treats, so click here to find a location near you.
Cinnamon Rolls From Cinnaholic
Next up is another often overlooked treat that needs to be recognized more. This, of course, is the cinnamon roll. While cinnamon rolls are a delicious treat from anywhere that sells them, the gourmet cinnamon rolls made by Cinnaholic on Danforth Avenue are on a whole other level. Not only can you enjoy flavourful cinnamon rolls like the Cookie Monster Roll, Caramel Apple Pie Roll and Campfire S’mores Roll, Cinnaholic also makes some unreal cookie dough treats and their famous Cinnacakes.
Beaver Tail from Beaver Tails
This next tasty treat can definitely be considered a Canadian classic. That’s right, the Beaver Tail. These delicious slabs of deep fried dough are to die for. The best part is that there’s truly a flavour for everyone. For example, ‘The Classic’ features a simple sugar and cinnamon blend, ‘The Triple Trip’ features Hazelnut spread with peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces, and ‘The Apple Pie’ is exactly what the name entails. You can enjoy this unique treat while you also enjoy the views from the Harbourfront as this store is located at the corner of York Street and Queen’s Quay West.
Cheesecake from Heirloom
If you have some time and need to get a delicious dessert for any sort of get together, then the cheesecakes from Heirloom in Etobicoke are the perfect options for you. Heirloom’s Sampler Cheesecake features a couple of slices from all of their tasty flavours, like Cookie Coffee Crunch, Strawberry Nutella and Coconut Oreo. This is a big dessert, so it’s probably best when shared with company.
Hopefully now you’re inspired to ditch your boring regular cheat day treats and venture out into the world of unique tastes. Happy snacking!
