Our Favorite Sweet Treats

We Find Our Favorite Sweet Treats
Edited by Suzanne Loudermilk Haughey - February 2014

“How do I love thee?” Let us count the ways—a dozen doughnuts, a handful of chocolates, two almond croissants, and three scoops of ice cream. 

Okay, maybe that’s not exactly what Elizabeth Barrett Browning had in mind. But sonnets aside, sweets and love are a natural pair any time of year, especially in February when a gift of candy means more than calories on Valentine’s Day. In fact, it’s the fourth biggest holiday for confectionery purchases (after Halloween, Easter, and Christmas), according to candyusa.com. With that in mind, we went in search of the best sweets that Baltimore has to offer.

A heart-shaped box might be nice, but there are lots of other ways to woo your lover’s sweet tooth. Here are 50 of our favorite treats.
