Cupcake Tour of New York

Cupcake Tour of New York

Product Review (submitted on September 24, 2015):
We did the walking cupcake tour. There were about 20 people on our tour, which a times made it hard to hear our guide but the sights around us made it enjoyable so it didn't always matter to me. I was able to see places in New York City that I've never seen before. We went to six stops on the tour and the first stop was Baked by Melissa. We got to try a bit sized cupcake which was delicious and I was under the assumption those would be the size of all samples. I was wrong! Before heading to the next shop we got to see Bake Crumbs Shops and learn of their history and that it was a stop on this very tour before. How sad because that would have been awesome. Next stop was Amorino, a gelato paradise. We sampled a spoonful of mango gelato. It was amazing. Amorino makes all their products organic. The mango gelato was made from real mangos no sugar added. Sweeeet! On our way to the next spot we got to see Washington Square Park. That was nice to see and a enjoyable small break from walking. Molly's cupcakes was next. Wow is all I can say. You get to create your own here and it wasn't a bite sized sample. It was a regular sized cupcake. By this point I'm hitting my sugar rush with three more stops to go! BisousCiao was our fourth stop and sampling macaroons was the treat. Never tried one before and maybe if it wouldn't have been the dark chocolate flavor I might have enjoyed it more. I really wished it was the thai tea flavor!! Onward to Milk & Cookies we got to try their salted oat cookie. I had to save mine for later (which was really good) because I couldn't take in so much sweets! The cookie was huge!! My boyfriend also purchased the bacon snap cookie due to his love of bacon. They make all types and anything you can dream of there. The final stop was The Magnolia Bakery for their famous red velvet. This was a bite sized portion so I had to try it. It had a bit of a coffee taste to it so it wasn't my favorite but still enjoyable to nibble on! I was able to take this tour through groupon for only $25 dollars. For that price I recommend it. Even for $50 I would recommend it for two people. The portions were worth it and the guide was knowledgeable and funny. I would take another Great New York Tour again...maybe the Italian one!! Ciao!!
