#NationalDessertDay: Some of the Best Sweet Treat Spots in NJ!

#NationalDessertDay: Some of the Best Sweet Treat Spots in NJ!

It’s #NationalDessertDay! Before you continue reading, I must worn you, you might experience a sugar rush! That’s okay, today is the day to cheat on those diets and indulge in those guilty pleasures! Here are a few of #HipNJ’s favorite local dessert spots to help you out!

1. Absolute Zero, Montclair

As you may or may not know, rolled ice cream has become “a thing” and Absolute Zero is the place to get it. In October 2016, Absolute Zero opened and has been putting smiles on customer’s faces ever since. Their hand made, Thai-inspired ice creams rolls are a combination of fresh milk, cream,  and other ingredients like fruit or cookies. They also offer a wide variety of toppings and flavors. The idea of rolled ice cream originated in Thailand, where street vendors would create and serve the ice cream on mobile carts. Now it has become an American favorite!

2. Gigi’s Cupcakes, Maplewood

I don’t know about you guys, but cupcakes are my absolute favorite dessert! They’re cute, fun, and tasty! What’s unique about Gigi’s Cupcakes is her signature icing swirl, with 3 layers of icing. Gigi has almost 100 locations nationwide, including one right here in Maplewood. Whether you’re planning an event or you just have a sweet tooth, Gigi’s cupcakes will satisfy your needs!

3. The Cookie Connect, Bloomfield

If you’re busy during the day on this year’s #NationalDessertDay, no worries, you can still celebrate by heading to The Cookie Connect for a late night treat! The Mission of this company is to “Make sure everyone’s late night cravings are fulfilled“. They bake their treats fresh daily, offering a standard menu of 12 cookies, seasonally changing beverages, ice cream, and their signature cupcake cup! This month’s cupcake cup flavor is Pumpkin Spice Latte, (yes I’ve tried it and yes, its as good as it sounds), get yours tonight!

4. Papa Ganache, Matawan

No, we did not forget about our #HipNJ vegans! Located in Matawan, all Papa Ganache’s treats are vegan and gluten free!

“Our products are heart healthy, cholesterol-free, no trans fat, no hydrogenated oil, no high fructose corn syrup, dairy-free, egg-free, all natural no preservatives, no animal products, and mostly organic.”

Papa Ganache has a wide variety of treats, like cakes, bars, cookies, pies and more! They also offer wholesale for those special occasions.   

5. Mo’Pweeze Bakery, Denville

Our last dessert spot is another vegan delight, (we had to give you guys options too!) Mo’Pweeze Bakery is 100% vegan, and free of the top 9 allergens. They were voted Best Gluten Free Goodies in Morris 2018. They offer many different desserts, such as donuts, edible cookie dough, cakes, brownies, and more! Their products are ALWAYS tree-nut, fish, shellfish, gluten, peanut, eggs, dairy, and sesame free. If you have other allergies, Mo’Pweeze will try their best to accommodate you!

The moral of the story is, there are no excuses this #NationalDessertDay! Whether you want to go super sweet or try to keep it healthy, there are so many places for desserts right here in New Jersey! Celebrate today the right way! 

Happy Eating!
