Hey guys, it’s my favorite time of the week! HUMP DAY! This week we’re talking about my favorite topic: SWEET TREATS! Knoxville has many great places to stop in for some sweets. Here is a list of my top ten favorite places to stop in for a sugary snack.
The Top 10
Coolato Gelato– Head down to Gay Street for some Coolato. It’s not ICE CREAM, it’s gelato! Dark Chocolate and Peach are my go to’s! I never pass up anything with peaches.
Duck Doughnuts-The rumors are true… they are the BEST doughnuts EVER!
Menchies– Hit it up on Monday for $5 day! Fill it up with as much as you want and as many toppings as you please for ONLY $5! I can not pass chocolate with all the chocolate toppings. Oh! Don’t forget a lid before you leave.
The French Market – On a date or having a girls afternoon? Stop in at The French Market for a Nutella crepe and coffee. Not into sweets like Tiger? You can have a savory crepe or another French pastry!
Ham and Goodies –OK! Everyone loves a bakery that has been around for a long time and is family run! This is the stop for the BEST lemon cookies you will EVER eat (I don’t normally even like lemon flavored sweets). They also have awesome cake and other flavored cookies.
Brusters – Ice Cream, milkshakes, ice cream sandwiches, home made waffle cones, and Italian Ice. What more could you want?
Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop– I don’t know about you guys, but I am a pie lover! Pie is one of my all time favorite sweets! Buttermilk Sky Pies makes the BEST pies! You might even take it to Thanksgiving or a family event and fool them into thinking you made a homemade pie!
Phoenix Pharmacy– Throwing it way back! Phoenix Pharmacy is the cutest and best place for a small weeknight date or even a Saturday afternoon. Take your date here and share a Sundae or a shake!
Coffee and Chocolate– Another Market Square establishment makes the list. Need I say more? Coffee and Chocolate is all I need! Midterms are in swing. So, take a break and go here for a treat.
Melting Pot– Who knew you could just go in for the CHOCOLATE? Go out with friends on the weekend or just a quick trip during the week. This is one my favorite things to do for weeknight snack.
The Wrap Up
Here is a short list of my favorite places I go quite often. Nothing is better then a sweet treat every once in awhile. Stop worrying about how you will look for spring break and enjoy life! Grab a friend or significant other and make it a trend. Tiger and I do Menchies most Mondays!
