Butterbing Cookie Sandwiches

Some people have a bucket list of things that they want to do, I have a bucket list of things that I want to eat, when I saw a photo of Butterbing’s cookie sandwiches, I knew that these delicious morsels must be added to my bucket list. 

Last week I went to Melbourne with my mum and my toddler, my main reason for the visit was so that I could eat all the foods on my bucket list, unfortunately due to circumstances that I won’t mention, I didn’t get to eat everything. Luckily however I got to eat a lot of Butterbing’s cookie sandwiches. 

I managed to discover that this cafe called Cafenatics in The Emporium sold Butterbing’s cookie sandwiches. When I arrived at the display cabinet, I was so in awe and wanted to eat all of the cookie sandwiches.

I decided to buy one coconut and one vanilla bean cookie sandwich. I didn’t want to buy more in case I didn’t like them.

 I decided that I would try the coconut Butterbing cookie sandwich first. The cookie sandwich tasted amazing, the cookie part tasted like a chocolate brownie, slightly crunchy and chewy in texture. The coconut filling tasted creamy and tasted like real coconut and was not too sweet. I was so in love with these cookie sandwiches and became instantly addicted.

The next few days I ended up buying two Butterbing cookie sandwiches each day and I also bought some to take home to Sydney. Unfortunately the cafe gave me a peanut butter cookie sandwich instead of the gingerbread cookie sandwich, I was so devastated because I was looking forward to trying the gingerbread version. ­čś×

I cannot wait to eat more of these cookie sandwiches again soon, my friend tells me that she saw some on sale at the Brewery Yard Markets in Sydney, hope they sell them there again soon.

Frugii Dessert Laboratory 

I have always been a huge fan of Frugii’s ice cream, I remember many years ago when I got try to their passionfruit pavlova ice cream for the first time, it was most certainly love at first bite. Can you imagine  how excited I was when John the maker of Frugii ice cream announced he will be opening up a dessert bar. 

In November, my family and I finally got a chance to visit Frugii Dessert Laboratory, I was so excited. Upon arrival at the Frugii Dessert Laboratory I decided to stop and just let the sweet aura of the place sink into my sweet senses, the dessert bar looked lovely.

When we stepped inside, my eyes were immediately drawn like magnets to the desserts in the display cabinet, the 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux seemed to be the one dessert that won me over, it looked extraordinary, so I ordered that and then a chocolate milkshake for my husband. 

When the 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux was ready for consumption, I took a moment and smelt the choux and all I could smell was the intoxicating smell of chocolate. 

The 70% cocoa dark chocolate choux tasted so amazing,  that I was speechless at the time that when I took the first bite. My favourite part of the dessert was the dark chocolate creme patisserie filling, it tasted so creamy and delicious. 

Next up was the dark chocolate milkshake.  The dark chocolate milkshake was made with fresh milk and dark chocolate Frugii ice cream and had a creamy texture that made it so easy to drink. The milkshake wasn’t too sweet either, it was just a shame that we had to share it.  I especially loved that the milkshake was served in a beaker.

Finally, a trip to Frugii Dessert Laboratory would not be complete without eating some of Frugii’s famous ice cream, I decided to try the vanilla bean ice cream. Unfortunately I couldn’t stomach the ice cream because I was too full, but from the few licks that I did take, I can tell you that this ice cream is definitely the real vanilla deal.  

Overall I am really impressed with Frugii Dessert Laboratory, I love the concept and I love the desserts. I’m so happy for John and Edna, they have created a heavenly place for dessert connoisseurs like me. My only wish is that they open one up in Sydney. 

Frugii Dessert Laboratory is located at:

30 Lonsdale Street, Braddon ACT.
