So on a gloomy winter’s day during the holidays, we decided to hit up one of the hottest dessert places in town at the moment – Stix Desserts! I had seen posts of this place on my Instagram feed and knew I needed to get in on the hype. Here’s the obligatory full frontal pic – yes it is epic:
Immediately when we walked in, we were greeted with a smile and a friendly staff who asked us how our day was. The display of gelato ‘stix’ was actally smaller than what I had pictured in my mind, but nonetheless extremely enticing. I was drawn to the unique flavours such as biscotti and Spekulatius, which she told us was a take on a donut. We tried out a couple of flavours before I settled on the biscotti, which was delicious!
The next step is to choose your chocolate! I chose dark chocolate (they say it’s better for you!) and you get a choice of toppings ranging from peanuts, almonds, 100’s and 1000’s, Milo and more. I chose peanuts so it ended up looking and tasting a lot like a golden gay-time, but hey I’m not complaining!
I love the unique idea and concept of the store. It is very reminiscent of the self-serve froyo craze that has swept across Sydney, and if that’s anything to go by, then this is bound to be a success!
