Austin: treating your sweet-tooth
for the past few months I have been trying hard to cut down on carbs, work out and eat lots of veggies and protein. Pretty much all that went to hell once I came to Austin because there is some very awesome notsogoodforyou food to be had here. On South Congress Avenue there is a a whole range of goodie goodie stands and shops with almost irresistable sweets, baking goods and ice-creams. Snack on delectable cupcakes and discover that green-tea and original tart frozen yogurt could quite possibly become your new favorite food.
And if you can handle more sweetness, simply cross the street and check out the Candy Shop with all the candies you could possibly think of.
The Big Top Candy Shop is located on 1706 South Congress Avenue.
And after all that candy-snacking, do switch to liquid sweetness and grab a Margerita (pitcher?) at Polvo’s (2004 S 1st St).
