I have a couple of questions for you.
Are you a student feeling down because its (already) almost midsemester?
Are you working and feeling dragged down by the coming of winter?
Is all the bad weather we had recently making you feel down in the dumps?
If you said yes, (or even if you said no!) you still totally deserve a sweet treat! As many of you ladies have found, there are plenty of places around that have yummy treats. But Pinkberry aside, here is a preview of different sweet treats Newbury St. and the surrounding area has to offer you. So bring along your tastebuds, a friend and your imagination and go for a walk around to explore yummy goodies. Part 1
In the Prudential center, you will find many different sweet treats. I find that many serve the tourist quite well with Boston motifs (think lobster gummies, red sox cookies), while others, although found nationwide, make living in Boston, and especially on Newbury St. that much sweeter. One of my favorite guilty pleasures to indulge in is found near the Huntington Avenue entrance, and it is the Cheesecake Factory. Sure you might have a Cheesecake factory in your hometown, but man oh man!! Those cakes are so yummy and delicious and sinful. Go to the website to find out about their meals too, at www.thecheesecakefactory.com And when you go, please take a friend along to share with you. A slice of cake/pie is pricey, but if you take along a friend to share with you, you’ll find that there is less guilt involved, and you can split the 8 dollar cake into a 4 dollar treat. Or you can take it home and finish it later. We won’t tell.
I feel it necessary to talk about Pinkberry since I’m sure you’ve seen the line that has formed outside of the small shop and wondered, “Is it really THAT good?”
It is located only a block away from our house, going toward Mass. Ave. If you are going, make sure to bring a friend along, since I think part of the fun is seeing what other people put in their frozen yogurt. OH! and don’t you dare mistake frozen yogurt for “just ice cream.” www.pinkberry.com has a cool deal where you can see flavors that are seasonal, so if you don’t like this season’s peanut butter fro-yo, then wait for next season’s pomegranate, or summer’s watermelon. So yummy. Mix and match flavors and top them off however you want, using fruit, cereal or candy toppings, and you have got yourself a fun, custom made dessert that is all yours. Enjoy!
