Attention Sweet Tooth: Go check out Sweet Moses!

Yikes, this has been one crazy week for me. I apologize for the lack of posting. It certainly isn't due to lack of content! I have some other fun posts coming up, including a review of tonight's Emerging Chefs dinner featuring one of my favorite chefs. It's 8:00 a.m. and I'm already dreaming of the film-inspired meal.

Last weekend was a whirlwind of fun, laughter, beer (St. Patrick's Day), some highs (Syracuse winning on Friday), some lows (Syracuse losing on Sunday), and some sweet treats. Cleveland Foodie invited several bloggers and other social media hounds to visit Sweet Moses- Detroit Avenue's newest addition- for a media preview party on Saturday. This traditional soda fountain and treat shop will bring back good memories for some, and promises to please all. My brother and his girlfriend were in town for the long weekend, so I dragged them and "R" over there after a delicious, and hearty, brunch at Latitude 41.

We were greeted with samples of fudge and English toffee upon entering the door- what a way to be welcomed. We then started to check out their impressive cases filled with all sorts of treats for your sweet tooth.
I have to go back and try the Ritz Bits!The cookies were giant!A variety of peanut butter sandwiches will be featured at the shop, including: Peanut Butter and Bacon, Peanut Butter and Marshmellow Cream, and Peanut Butter and Nutella.
Then we were offered the opportunity to order from a reduced menu. I decided to keep it simple after our large meal at Latitude, so I opted for a scoop of their homemade Belgium Chocolate ice cream. But when I was given the choice of adding chocolate sauce, whip cream, and nuts...I couldn't refuse.The ice cream itself was smooth and creamy, not at all too hard for this frozen custard loving girl. I was thoroughly pleased. Although when I ordered the peanuts I had assumed that they would be crushed, and I was a little disappointed in the full Spanish peanuts. My bad.

"R" is an ice cream-aholic. No joke. So by the time we finally walked out of there, I knew that we'd be back. The official opening is this weekend, so go check out this fabulous addition to the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood! It's here just in time for the warm weather.
