All over Manhattan Stores/Cafes
Brooklyn flea
New Amsterdam Market

Bringing a new twist to old classics, Liddabits is taking over Brooklyn and Manhattan by storm. With  no real store front, you can only get their treats at a few outdoor markets and cafes in Manhattan. From Smores bars, Sea Salt Carmels, Honey Comb Candy, Maple Popcorn, Jellies, and Lollipops they have crazy candy concoctions to keep your sweet tooth happy. Always organic and always using local ingredients this is the wave of the future. They might be most popular for their honey comb candy covered in chocolate. Light and airy chewy and crispy with a slight honey flavor. The chocolate is amazingly creamy and decadent.  Expect to pay top dollar for an organic local farm to table hand made smores candy bar. That might be the downside. A bag of 6 carmels was $6 and a candy bar was $7 ouch! I highly recommend the Brooklyn Flea for an afternoon of noshing and checking out how beautiful the Brooklyn waterfront is.

Kurver Kreme-NY

Located right on Central in Albany, you cant miss this old school drive-in. Serving up cones and cups for almost 60yrs Kurver is a local legend. Ive driven past this place at least 100 times and never stopped. I finally stopped and was not disappointed. They have over 30 sundaes to choose from (none of which tell you what they include) so you just choose whatever sounds good. Ive had a chocolate brownie peanut butter fudge sundae and the chocolate rapture sundae. Both were huge and the toppings were delicious. Much better then the crappy ice cream places where I live (Kingston Ny). Ill be stopping here all summer whenever I am in Albany. They are seasonal so get a cone while its hot.

If you are looking for an outstanding, classy burrito joint, this place isn't it. If you are looking for a place to hang out with some friends and enjoy burritos and drinks, then this is definitely the right place. Bombers has been an Albany institution for years. Back before Chipotle or Moes, before you could just go get a giant burrito anywhere, there was Bombers. This tattooed dive bar fits in just right on Lark St. They may have even made Lark St what it is today. Feeding hungry drunk college kids all night with giant football sized burritos. Now although Bombers has recently moved down my list of burrito joints I still give respect to them for being the first in the capital region. Their food is killer and the portions are ridiculous. Jerk chicken or pulled pork burrito, cheese fries, and some wings and you're all set. Of course you could never finish all that by yourself so bring your friends. This is a "must go" on my  list of places in the Hudson Valley. Whenever The Dead come to town they are sure to stop in. Bombers has free burrito day on 4/20. Its to bad Jerry will never have a fatty at Bombers.

-Man Vs Food

The Barking Crab is located right in the main shopping part of Newport Rhode Island (They also have another location in Boston Ma). Newport is a gorgeous little town right on the ocean. Don't miss the Cliff walk and check out the mansions and lighthouses. Ive wanted to check Newport out for years. I went during off season and after going to 3 restaurants that were closed ended up here out of desperation. This place gets really bad reviews by the locals on yelp but It was cool inside and the food was decent. It was over priced but so was everything in Newport. Not nearly as good as Flo's  this is more like the Ruby Tuesdays of seafood a sight step up from Red lobster. Still nice for a good time and some crabs or clams. I would try something more local then this while in Newport. The Salvation Cafe is were I really wanted to go but they were closed so if you're in the area check them out for me. And don't forget to go to Flo's Clam Shack.

Stuffed Quahogs weren't that good

Crack pie? Really? Crack pie? Say no more crack pie is here to stay. Don't miss out on this gooey buttery sweet (tastes like pecan pie without the pecans) cake that will make you come back for more like a crack head does crack. Anyways Momofuku Milk Bar is a crazy bakery/cafe serving up Cereal ice cream, compost cookies, and candy bar pie. How about some Red velvet soft serve with corn flakes or Cereal flavored milk. Super trendy but super expensive. Definitely worth checking out. Momofuku has multiple locations and all of their desserts are to die for. They go above and beyond what you would expect. This place has everything right and will be around for a long time.

My wife works in Boston every 3 months and I never get a chance to go with her so I sent her on a mission. A mission to get the worlds greatest Boston Creme Pie. Saw this on Throwdown and as you can tell by the pics it was one of the most beautiful pies Ive ever seen. So I asked my wife to write a review.She even took all the pics herself with her cell phone...Now that's love.

"It was a really cute bakery seen on Throwdown for their Boston creme pie. The iced coffee was really good and all the stuff was really expensive but looked amazing."-Steph

The Boston Creme Pie looked better then it tasted but it was my first authentic Boston Creme Pie from Boston. The chocolate was amazing and the cake was super dense. The creme had alot of orange flavor to it. Best Boston Creme Pie I have ever had. O ya they dont sell slices and the whole pie is $40!
