Humanity's Nutella-obsession has just gone from playfully adorable to next level cray that borders on disgusting, disgustingly delicious, if that makes any sense at all. Even the most notorious Nutella lovers will have to take a second and process the notion of the Nutellasagna, a desert-hybrid that is both a diet dream and nightmare.
Brooklyn bakery Robicelli's is the architect behind the Nutelllasagna, created as part of a special summer season of over-the-top baked goods (appropriately dubbed Jump The Shark Summer) with the goal of making you "whimsy so hard that your junk falls off." I had to re-attach my jumk after seeing the Nutellasagna, so mission accomplished Robicelli.
So what exactly is inside this Nutella-monstrosity of epic preportions? According to Gothamist, the Nutellasagna is comprised of "layers of buttery lasagna noodles, cannoli custard, copious amounts of Nutella, crushed roasted hazelnuts and chopped chocolate, with some marshmallows on top for additional sweetness." Not that any added sugar was really needed, but hey, we ain't complaining.
Unfortunately Montreal doesn't have its own bakery making a Nutellasagna, but hopefully the soon-to-open Nutella restaurant will pay heed and it it to their menu. We can only hope. Live off the photos below in the meantime.
Even though their shaved ice desserts are huge, you may not want to share because they're also incredibly delicious.
Each shaved ice dessert on the menu is piled high with toppings ranging from taro to brown sugar milk to mochi, mango and strawberry.
If you're not in the mood for shaved ice — or you're ridiculously hungry — Meet Fresh also has taro balls, grass jelly, purple sweet potato treats, tofu pudding, almond soup, purple rice desserts, waffles and more.
Address: 150, ave. Mont-Royal E., Montreal, QC (Plateau)
Why You Need To Go: They're famous for their watermelon and pineapple bowls but have a big menu full of fun and delicious Hawaiian-themed treats. We can't wait to try the Strawberry Shortcake Sundae and birthday cake ice cream, which uses actual chunks of birthday cake.
Address: 1274, boul. de Maisonneuve E., Montreal, QC (Ville Marie)
Why You Need To Go: Some of the most refined and elegant soft-serve twists you can find, Sachère always keeps balanced flavour profiles in mind. Think toasted pistachio & sour cherry, Matcha & dark chocolate, and olive oil & grapefruit mint.
True ice cream fans know that more is always better! Le Grand Verglas (The Great Ice Storm), a creamery on Montreal's South Shore, lives by the same motto with its famous four-level cones. How could you not add crushing one of these delicious behemoths to your summer bucket list?
The "frozen bistro" in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu specializes in cold desserts from gelato to milkshakes and bubble tea — but if you want to go big or go home, order the "Grand Verglas."
Cookie? Or pie? One of life's toughest decisions, but thanks to Anita Martella-Mulé, a.k.a Madame Munchy, a Montreal-based home baker who has brought the city its first-ever cookie pie, we don't need to choose anymore.
Known for her wild and creative desserts, the self-proclaimed "Queen of the Cookie Pie" has brought sugary goodness to her loyal subjects.
As for the Madame, herself, "I love over the top desserts, like the ones on my menu (Slutty Cheesecake, Fudges, Millionaire Bars) but couldn’t really find anywhere to buy them," she told MTL Blog.
"So, I started making them myself. Once family and friends got a taste they all wanted to place orders, so I decided to start selling them."
"The Cookie Pie is a first for Montreal as far as we know, since no one has ever seen one before! The dream is for it to become a staple of Montreal desserts! Montreal Smoked Meat, Montreal Steak Spice, Montreal Bagels… Montreal Cookie Pie!"
Price: $40 for the cookie pie, $5-10 for delivery
