Sweet treats under the Christmas Tree are appreciated by everyone. ITC hit the streets of Lane Cove to uncover the best sweet treats we could find. Yes, it is a tough job, but somebody has to do it. In no particular order, we give you 11 sweet treats that would make an ideal Christmas Gift.
Krispy Kreme Donuts at 7 Eleven
The 7 Eleven on Centennial Avenue has Christmas themed Krispy Kremes and they are so cute (not to mention yummy). You can pre-order your Christmas supply by just popping in to see the friendly staff at 7 Eleven Lane Cove.
Gelatissimo Take Home Packs
ITC recently discovered that you could take home your favourite gelato in a home pack. Gelatissimo has released two special Christmas Flavours. If someone asks you to bring a Christmas dessert just take a Gelatissimo Take Home Pack.
Gelatissimo Lane Cove is located in the Lane Cove Plaza.
The chocolate covered blueberries are a big hit whenever ITC brings them out. ITC also takes them as a host/hostess gift. Purchase a glass bottle at the Source Bulk Foods and fill it up with these beautiful sweet juicy dried blueberries in rich dark chocolate. A decadent must have for dark chocolate lovers. The Source Bulk Foods Co Lane Cove is located in Lane Cove Market Square.
Bakers Delight Lane Cove have a range of Christmas Cakes, Mince Tarts and more. The Christmas Cakes are presented in a nice tin (which can be reused again).
ITC really loves these colourful Gingerbread Cookies. We watched them walking out the door at Cafe Fink. Cafe Fink is located in the Lane Cove West Shops.
The Spotted Orchid has gone old school with an amazing array of lollies that you loved as a kid. A great gift would be a bunch of flowers and some sweet treats. The Spotted Orchid is located just across from the Post Office.
The Cake Man – Lane Cove
Check out this Buche De Noel or as they say in the United States Yuletide Log. It is available at The Cake Man located in the Bakers’s Delight Arcade.
Salted Caramel Sauces
ITC has a new addiction and it is the caramel sauces at Hummerstons Gourmet Meats. I had not seen this range of sauces anywhere else before and they are delicious. Warning: you will not want to share this treat with anyone. For a quick Christmas dessert, buy some good quality mini sweet pastry shells and put in the caramel sauce and the top with whipped cream. Hummerstons Gourmet Meats are located at the Lane Cove West shops.
