On the Road Eats: Comforting Desserts
Sugardaddy's Sumptuous Sweeties — Columbus, Ohio The owners of this brownie-centric bakery believe that "blondes really do have more fun," especially when referring to the eatery's tropical Tahiti Blondie. Featured on Throwdown, this brown sugar blondie stands apart from other bars with its delicious additions of crushed pineapple, shredded coconut and toasted cashews. Tasting like "an island in a brownie," the gourmet treat is both nutty and buttery, and packs a wow factor when wrapped up in the bakery's signature silk bag. As an added perk, the blondies are also edgeless, as the owners know that the best part of a brownie is the chewy center, so they use biscuit cutters to shape their bars into circles for a perfect bite every time.
