I mentioned there is an Italian Town in Boston. Yesterday we went again and one of our missions was to try out some of the authentic Italian pastries.
We went to this nice shop called Modern Pastry. It's always filled with people and you can really tell how popular it is just by looking at the crowd.
This time I wanted to try their cannoli, and on top of that we got a black & white cookie (soft cookie), and a hazelnut flavored nugat chocolate bar.
I knew they would be sweeter than usual but to our surprise they were just TOO SWEET! Well the cannoli and the cookie was still alright. But the nugat bar was just too much sugar. I felt as if I'd get diabetes just from eating 2 mouthful of it.
To be honest, all of them were quite tasty, only if they could reduce their sugar level by half.
The water we had came into handy. We drank so much trying to dilute everything. hahaha
Wanted to try another pastry shop but we just had to give up. Maybe another day...
