Last week, I splurged on an order from Liddabit Sweets in Brooklyn!
I felt pretty good about the splurge though; the company was founded by two chicks and their website says,
At Liddabit, we are committed to using as many local and seasonal ingredients as possible to create fresh, delectable, responsibly made sweets for you to enjoy. We strive to take care of and strengthen our neighbors, our community, and our planet – join us!
Their “FAQ” page really sold me too. They answer the question, “What makes your products different?” pretty damn well.
The only thing I had to get over was the damn shipping and handling. Not ideal, but a fact of life. If you live in NYC, seriously, go to that store right now and go crazy!
Because it was a splurge, I had to be picky about which crazy-delicious-sounding sweets to order.
I ordered the Lime-in-Coconut Bar, which has coconut, lime zest, white rum, toasted macadamias, and dark chocolate.
Those ingredients are everything I love and cherish so that was a no-brainer! I cut it into four pieces so I could enjoy just a little taste treat when I needed it and it was so great.
It’s really hard to go wrong with coconut flakes.
Next, the real reason I ended up on the site…the Beer & Pretzel Caramels.
I’m sorry, maybe you didn’t catch that the first time.
Beer. And. Motherfucking. PRETZEL. CARAMELS.
Maybe I haven’t made my savory-sweet obsession clear enough up to this point, but I love pretzels as part of dessert. Love, love, love. Like, “Thanks for the scoop of ice cream, but could I get some Rold Golds?” And now we get to put alcohol in the mix?!
I had to come up with a new word to describe these: ridiclicious. Ridiculously delicious. I honestly felt like I was eating the true essence of what a caramel should taste like. It was like a movie prop — in the sense that it was the most perfect, flawless representation of caramels. It tasted like Halloween. I didn’t even know I liked caramels quite so much.
God, I love foodgasmic food. I can’t wait till I have some sort of excuse to order these again. But I was really excited to see they do wedding favors… (DIK.)
