Dessert Night

Driving home from work last night, I noticed that the Country Bear in Wilmington was advertising a Dessert Night on Monday.  I called this morning to find out the details and learned that it was their first Dessert Night and that it would be $ 6 per person for an "All You Can Eat Dessert Buffet" with tea, coffee, or hot chocolate.  Convincing Drew to go with me was not much of a battle.  

They had over twenty desserts spread out on the counter and they all looked delicious.
We selected a few desserts each and took a seat.  For round one, it was obvious we had no plan of attack.  We came back with similar plates.  Drew had chosen Creme Brulee, Boston Creme Pie, and a miniature Canoli.  

My plate was exactly the same, but instead of the Canoli, I grabbed a little cake that resembled an Oreo Cookie. Drew is a huge fan of Creme Brulee and he thought it was, "Really Good, Yummmm..."  My favorite thing from Round 1 was the Boston Creme Pie.  Actually, on second thought it was also the Creme Brulee.

We smartened up for Round 2 and selected a few more desserts that we would sample together. Round 2 was the more nutritious of the rounds.  I selected a Lemon Pound Cake, Cherry Cobbler, a Miniature Strawberry Shortcake, and two Chocolate Covered Strawberries.  
A 10 year old at the counter recommended the Lemon Pound Cake and I am really glad I grabbed it because it was excellent.  Oddly, our favorite from this round was the Chocolate Covered Strawberry!  The strawberry didn't even seem out of season and the chocolate on it was perfect.

I'd like to say there was a Round 3, but we had already sampled enough!  There was no clear winner for us since everything was good.  The Country Bear is thinking they'd like to offer Dessert Night on the third Monday of each month.  I would like to go back, but I'll definitely have to come up with a better game plan!

Uh oh. Oh my. And a whole lotta other words I can't form because I. am. droooooooling.

We WILL come for dessert night sometime in the summer when the ferry is running. I can't believe it exists and I must have some.

$6 bucks? I guess they can make some money....maybe. I really like desserts.

On the other hand, trying to "get your money's worth" at a dessert buffet seems unwise. Hmm.

I should also mention that it is very kid friendly, but not sure about the major sugar high before bed. What a deal though. Oh, and they even have games like Connect Four that you can play while you eat!
