Pop Tarts & Coco

If you like trying new foods, Boston is such an experience for the tastebuds. During my visit, my sister and I went for brunch and 647, for if you can believe it, pop tarts. I must say only in America, can you get pop tarts for breakfast with a grown-up twist. I can’t remember the last time I ate an actual pop tart from the box, but this one was homemade, fresh and stuffed with rhubarb. If you get a chance to go, visit 647 for their pop tart flavour of the day. They have some other amazing brunch options as well. Did I mention the coffee was amazing?
I loved the idea of a hug mug!
Chocolate and Caramel Fondue


Following this sweet delight, dessert later that day consisted of visiting the Max Brenner chocolate shoppe. I have to say, I was slightly disappointed in what I thought was going to be the highlight of my trip in Beantown. My hot chocolate was a bit runny, and the chocolate fondue was wasn’t that great. I don’t want to tout any horns, but I am pretty sure I make a pretty mean fondue. Sadly this was not worth the calories for me but the experience was delightful. The inside is somewhat like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Exposed piping have been refitted and labelled so you think that there’s actual chocolate flowing through them. While the concept  is great, they need to rework the biggest part of their menu…chocolate!
This was extremely rich...I think I would have preferred fruit.

Have you been to Boston? What are your favourite eats?

  3. A homemade pop tart? I have never heard of such a thing. I can't believe people feed that boxed ish to their kids! I think I liked them for a few years when I was little, and that was it. Empty calories, but they are yummy. I bet the homemade one was delicious.

    I like the idea of a homemade pop tart, especially stuffed with a more tart fruit like rhubarb to balance out some of the sweetness. What's in the last picture?
