One of my favorite things about St. Augustine is roaming around the cobblestone streets, searching for just the right treat to satiate my sweet tooth. Here are a few of my favorite places to stop for a sugary indulgence:
The Hyppo is a homegrown popsicle purveyor that makes quirky flavors like mango habanero, orange cream, datil strawberry and ginger pineapple. On a hot day, these tasty treats are perfect for a quick refreshment on the go.
St. Augustine may be a long way from France, but you'd never know it once you set foot in Bon Ami Confections. The cute bakery on Hypolita Street makes bright, colorful macarons in a whirlwind of flavors (my personal favorites are lemon and salted caramel), and the handmade marshmallows are equally tasty.
If you're a fan of the sweet and spicy combination, head to Hot Shot Bakery for a chocolate-dipped datil pepper — if you can handle the heat, that is.
And, although it's a chain, you can't go wrong with fresh-made fudge or a scoop of chocolate ice cream from Kilwins.
