Imagine sinking your teeth into a sweet treat; covered with freshly picked fruits, nuts, and homemade cream or syrup. Or maybe you prefer a deceptively plain-looking chocolate ball that’s filled with chilli or salted caramel for that quirky flavour. Whatever the case is, you can easily satisfy your cravings for something sweet on your next holiday. Here are some ideas to make sure your next holiday is filled with unforgettably sweet memories:
Feast on gourmet sweets at the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival
A mecca for foodies, chefs, and basically anyone who loves good food (who doesn’t?), the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival or NIFWF is held every May 14th to 17th. Set within the gorgeous Noosa region, the festival is the event to be at if your taste buds are itching for gourmet sweets made by some of the country’s best chefs. From exotic passionfruit sorbets to plated desserts that are just too gorgeous to eat, you’ll never run out of options for a sugar high. Make sure you’ve got your tickets ready because seats easily sell out.
Indulge yourself at Chocoholic Tours in Melbourne
If you love everything chocolate, Melbourne (Australia’s chocolate capital) should be on your travel list. Book any of Chocoholic Tours’ packages to see why people flock to this vibrant city just to get a taste of its gourmet chocolate treats. Hazelnut bars, milk chocolate buttons, and chocolate truffles are just some of the sweet things waiting for chocoholics like you. Depending on the package you choose, you can join chocolate tasting trips around Melbourne’s gourmet shops, get a tasting bag, special offers, and free drinks. Some tours also include demos on how chocolate is made and how raw ingredients are used to create one-of-a-kind sweets.
Taste something new at Sydney’s dessert spots
Head to Sydney if you want to stuff yourself with the best sweet treats you can find. This city is the perfect food trip destination for dessert lovers because choices aren’t just limited to the classic treats. Tickle your tastebuds at the Greek restaurant Alpha and order a plate of chocolate hazelnut baklava that comes with a sour cherry ice cream topping. If you want something Italian, Darlinghurst’s Gelato Messina has the perfect treat: a bowl of pear and rhubarb gelato. Drop by Ms G’s and get your hands on the Stoner’s Delight, a strangely delicious but aptly named combo that can include ice cream, jam, peanut butter, potato chips, bacon, and fried banana.
One good way to get to know a place is through its delectable sweets. So why not plan a food trip with your friends or family for a more memorable holiday? You’ll never run out of places to visit and treats to taste. From the Noosa region to Sydney’s busy streets, your options are practically endless. To make it easier for you to roam around the city in search for the ultimate dessert, book with a cheap car rental that has branches at different locations.
