To me, pudding is one of those desserts that I never really think about, but when it’s put in front of me, I wish I thought about more!

Just last summer, the Puddin' Palace opened in Oaklyn, New Jersey with quite an array of desserts.

From your classic banana pudding to red velvet, full pans with varieties of flavors and even baked goods, this place has been nothing short of successful.

Just recently, the Puddin' Palace owners decided to open a second storefront, this one not exactly focused on pudding. Yummie's Palace came to Oaklyn just over a month ago and is conveniently situated next to Puddin' Palace.

The Yummie's Palace specializes in ice cream and water ice, and has been showing off some delicious-looking sundaes. And anyone knows that I’m an absolute freak when it comes to ice cream!

In addition to sweet treats, Yummie's Palace also serves soft pretzels, cheesesteak, pizza and more.

The owners LaGracia Givings and Miranda Jordan started selling pudding out of their homes almost four years ago, and after a rise in popularity were afforded the opportunity to open a storefront. The storefront made them able to keep up with their clients and also welcome hundreds more customers.

They hope to keep growing as a business and eventually sell other creative food items such as salmon bites, sliders and more.

If you are looking for a true homemade dessert and are in the New Jersey area this is undoubtedly the place to come. I know I’ll be going out of my way to try this place next time I’m in the area.

One of the Top 50 Candy stores in the US is right here in Jersey

Black River Candy Shoppe in Chester New Jersey was selected in Food Network Magazine's “America’s 50 Best Candy Stores” a couple of years back and the story went viral online earlier this year.

I decided to take a trip down there for myself to see what they had to offer. Right, when you walk in you feel like you are Charlie about to take over the chocolate factory. Black River Candy Shoppe is a cute little candy shop offering hundreds of different types of candy.

They have old-school childhood candy as well as an incredible selection of newer candy varieties. Candy is displayed in old whiskey barrels, and a lot of their candy is sold in bulk by the pound. It is located in downtown Chester right off of Main Street. Check out the photos from my recent visit:
