photo-1This weekend marked the 14th annual Boston Vegetarian Festival and we had a blast! It was wonderful to meet some of our fans and make new friends! We also enjoyed sampling the many vegan goodies from around the country. With tasty bites from Teese Cheese, Crazy Camel Dessert Hummus, and many local eateries, the festival was a bountiful display of veganism. We definitely enjoyed every second of the goodies, however we must say the highlight of our time there was meeting and tasting the desserts of Vegan Treats Bakery from Bethlehem, PA. This amazing bakery is every vegan’s dream offering the old staples of doughnuts and pies to more involved items such as French pastries and whoopie pies!

Death By Chocolate

Although we have yet to visit their storefront, we tried several different treats from their very full display of mini cakes! The first day we had the honor of diving into a delicious Carrot Cake and a Death By Chocolate. We tried the Carrot Cake first and it was flavorful and very moist! However, we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the Death By Chocolate. It was chocolate cake with a hardened chocolate shell, sprinkled with crispy balls, sprayed with gold dust, and a pretty chocolate star to top it off! One bite and we instantly went into a choco-gasm. This mini cake was packed full of chocolaty¬†flavor and the crisps were just a perfect touch. It was extremely hard to believe these were vegan!

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

The second day we knew we had to try as many mini cakes as possible, since we don’t know the next time we will be in Bethlehem. For Sunday we thought we would try the Peanut Butter Cheesecake and Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake. Both were so creamy and there was no way you could tell either of these desserts were “lacking” any ingredients. Although we enjoyed both cheesecakes to their core, the Peanut Butter Cheesecake floored us! There are almost no words to describe the fudgy chocolate and gooey peanut butter mixed with the creaminess of cheesecake that touched our tongues! This was is by far the best cheesecake, vegan or not, we have EVER come across!!

We can hardly wait to feast upon those delicious little cakes once again and have been brainstorming on how we can travel down to Bethlehem for AP. That way we have an excuse to overeat and spend our money on these incredible vegan goods! If you are ever passing through the area, this Vegan Treats Bakery is worth visiting. We unfortunately didn’t have a chance to try all their items, but one look at their menu will make one want to make a special trip to the town!

We want to thank our new friends at Vegan Treats and look forward to indulging in many more of their desserts. In fact, until we taste another Vegan Treats cake, we’re not sure anything else is comparable.
