There are so many after’s I could think of, but the most recent that I photographed was the ‘after’math at the Dessert Parlour Creams on Sunday!

I was dying to try this place out. In fact, there are two new dessert places open locally, so I know I have at least one more sweet treat to go!

Anyway, back to the point. This place was pretty fantastic, the decor was amazing, the menu was huge, and the service was wonderful!

They warned us that there was no such thing as kids size… And though I understand that, I wasn’t prepared for the size of the sundaes that we chose!

Out of 8 people, 6 of us ordered, and this is the beginning…



And I wonder why I’m steadily gaining weight…!


They were the size of the kids heads, honestly!

Now, let’s be honest, after a big meal at an Indian restaurant, there is not that much space left in tums for such large desserts, but hey, we had a good go!

And the ‘after’ shot shows at least 3 of the remains…


Mine at the front was more or less done (oops!) Lil Man had a good go of his Choc mint one, and Lil Princess had chosen an extra sickly Bubblegum and Strawberry one which she couldn’t finish! The other three… well they were definitely not totally empty!

And boy was I full afterwards! I was so happy that I had a mountain of ironing to do. There was no way I could sit or lie down! I had a pain in my side from overeating! But at least I got to try one of the dessert places!

(Note to self: next time, skip dinner, go straight to sweet!)

And for my little rhyme, to go with the photo…

Big  ice cream sundaes
Sure to give a sugar high
Calories taunting
A rush with every mouthful
But a tummy ache after!

    Oh my goodness!!! I cannot remember when I ate a sundae like the ones here and I honestly wouldn’t want to. I’m not up to the headache and tummy ache. I must admit though, they look SO good. 😉 ❤

    I try to be disciplined with desserts but always cave in when it comes to ice cream. Those sundaes look amazing!

    Oh my! Just looking at these are making me full to bursting. However, I so wish I could have joined in and helped demolish them. Wow! What a great place to have in town. Do they do a Maltesers one? 😃 I’d be in there every day, Ritu. Just imagine what kind of desserts they serve in the Winter. Hot custard with jam roly-poly, please.
