For those of us with a killer sweet tooth, it's hard enough not to indulge daily without feeling the guilt of gluttony rearing its ugly head.  The fact that Orlando hosts some of the most delectable shops, restaurants and bakeries filled with sweet and tempting treats doesn't make the struggle any less real. Here are a few of our favorite dessert spots in Orlando where we suggest you not only have dessert but eat it too. Enjoy! 

Jeremiah's Italian Ice

With over 20 locations in Orlando, Jeremiah's Italian Ice offers a menu that focuses on guest personalization. They offer 24 refreshing flavors of Italian Ice, but the real stars of the menu are our Gelatis and Flavorites. Gelatis are the perfect layering of any flavor (or flavors) of Italian Ice with rich and creamy Soft Ice Cream. Their Flavorites are the layering of Italian Ice, Soft Ice Cream, and decadent Layer-Ins (such as Oreo Cookie Crumbles and Mini Chocolate Chips). These layers of frozen treats provide the opportunity to develop a wide range of flavor profiles and they encourage our guests to experiment to find their own personal Flavorite!

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium

Toothsome Chocolate Emporium inside Universal Citywalk is the chocolate oasis you've been dreaming of.  Their full dessert menu offers every chocolate-infused, dipped, and whipped concoction you could dream up.  A fan favorite is their delectable milkshakes in Orlando.  With flavors like Chocolate X5, Bacon Brittle, Expresso Buzzzz, Red Velvet, and Key Lime Pie there is a preference for every pallet.

What's better than enjoying a craft popsicle on a hot day? At the Pop Parlour, all of their pops are hand-made with fresh ingredients and then flash-frozen, making them less icy than others. Order one of their boozy pops to add a little kick to your dessert.
