10 sweet treats on the square
Updated: Feb 22, 2018
If you’re like me, you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth. If you’re like members of my family, who shall go unnamed, you’ve got a sugar habit. Thankfully, there is no shortage of mouth-watering treats around town. We’ve rounded up a few we thought you'd like and they're all on the Square!
1) Spoons Café – Hot Chocolate*
This giant mug of chocolate-y goodness never disappoints. Rich whipped crème perfectly drizzled with a fudge-like syrup, it’s a delight and magically puts a smile on your face.
2) Frios Gourmet Pops – Pink Lemonade Pop
So many flavors, so little time. Enjoying frozen treats here will make you feel completely at home. With a spacious dining room and tables full of games for the whole family, you might find it hard to leave.
3) Square Burger – Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches
You’ll feel like a kid again when these cute sandwiches arrive on your table. With a choice of three different cookies and the ideal vanilla ice cream, this dessert will please everyone at your table. And, just for good measure, add an order of fritters. Trust me!
4) Emporium Pies – Smooth Operator
An irresistible blend of salty-sweet! The pretzel-filled crumbly crust paired with a decadent chocolate center will have you licking your spork over and over so as not to waste even the tiniest morsel.
5) Fair & Square Imports – Divine Chocolate*
Adorned with the cutest wrappers, this is chocolate you’ll feel good about eating. Made from pure Ghanaian cacao, it’s a fair-trade confection that will literally melt in your mouth. Choose from a variety, including both dark and milk chocolate.
6) Filtered – Lemon Poppy Cake*
The perfect complement to your cuppa, we stumbled upon this moist pound cake one late morning and we’re so glad we did! Next time you meet-up with someone for a latte, espresso or Earl Grey, ask for a slice. (There’s coffee cake, too!)
7) Patina Green Home & Market – Cookies*
A couple hundred of these delicious treats are cranked out every day and included with lunch orders. It’s such a nice extra that takes you by surprise the first time you visit and will spark much anticipation for every meal after.
8) Mom & Popcorn - Caramel Popcorn
When you enter this playground of sugar, the smell alone will satisfy your sweet tooth. Seriously. However, if that doesn’t do it, grab a bag of the cheddar-caramel mix. It’s light, tasty and makes a great snack.
9) Bayou Jacks Cajun Grill – Key Lime Pie
After a richly flavored Cajun meal, this tangy dessert is just what you’ll need. A generous slice with berry drizzle, it’s enough to share but you won’t want to.
10) Goodies Texas – Sea Salt Caramels
You cannot go wrong with anything here, but the sea salt caramels are one of our favorites. Cutely wrapped, soft, gooey and yummy. We find a box of these homemade goodies – pun totally intended – make for great gifts!
