Ice cream and chocolate and jelly rings. These are some of my favorite things. Unfortunately, they’re the Romeo to my Juliet… for now.
Currently, I am on a no-dessert diet for the second time in my life. As I approach the sailing away date, I begin to dread my decision to lose weight by cutting out sweets and unnecessary carbohydrates. This means I must skip dessert when the rest of my family happily chows on tiramisu. Here are some of the foods I miss the most (and desperately crave).
- Cream Cheese Pastries- These babies are delicious, assuming they’re done right. These breaded, sugary, creamy pastries are what breakfast is all about. Okay, maybe not, but they make a good after-breakfast dessert. Most of the places that make these cheap don’t add enough cream in the center (nor is it centered well).
- Pistachio Pudding- A few months ago, I bought instant pistachio pudding mix and used 1/4 of it to make myself a bowl of pudding. It smelled so sweet, comparable to almond soap. There were pieces of pistachios and it had a green color (it’s pistachio, deergod). I had to make and smell this for my little brother.
- Ice Cream (ALL THE KINDS)- If I have to explain why I miss ice cream, then maybe you don’t know what this delicious category of substances is. My favorite kind of ice cream is mint chip. I love the freshness that comes with the minty flavor. If the ice cream is good, the chocolate chips will melt in your mouth. The best I found was a few days expired Dove Mint Chip. Another ice cream I dream of is Dadus. I like most of them, but I would probably choose strawberry as my favorite.
- Chips- If I’m not craving desserts, I want chips. The best kind is cheddar and sour cream ruffles. Anything cheese related is my favorite flavor of chip. I wouldn’t be surprised if I enjoyed blue cheese chips (except blue buffalo). Unfortunately, chips typically have lots of fat and sodium in them, so they hold in water weight, along with adding onto it.
