Swiss Bakery, chocolate hearts, sandwiches and more!


Alright, I promised you to get a review on Swiss Bakery‘s Valentine’s specials before Valentine’s day, and here it is! …and some more.

They had quite a few Valentine’s special selections, they were mostly some sort of chocolate that were shaped like hearts. So many selections and I narrowed it down to 3. Chocolate mousse cake, Chocolate Ganache cake, and Salted Caramel Tarts.

The chocolate mousse cake was really good. The mousse was light, and fluffy, the whole thing was chocolaty, but not too sweet. It had a really good texture, and it kind of just melted in my mouth.

I recommend the Chocolate Ganache cake for serious chocoholics. It was very chocolaty, very good, but a little too sweet for my taste. If you ever crave chocolate, this is the cake that would do it.

My favorite out of the 3 would be the Salted Caramel Tart. It was a small heart shaped tart, with a chocolate crust, caramel filling and a few rocks of salt on top. It’s a perfect bite size, and the salt on top actually added a nice contrast to the sweetness of the caramel and the crust, very yummy.

Alright I visited the bakery during lunch time, and I hadn’t had anything to eat that day, so I also bought one of their Pretzel bread Sandwiches. I actually wanted everything in sight because I was so hungry. Anyways, I’ve read praise reviews about these sandwiches, so it was a no brainer for me to get it. There were 3 kinds of sandwiches, turkey, ham and roast beef. I tried the Roast Beef with Pretzel Bread.

The sandwiches was so yummy! It was big, a little bit more than a 6 inch sub. The pretzel bread was really good, it was like eating a bagel sandwich but BETTER. The sandwich had mayo, roast beef, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and cheddar cheese. Yes! no Kraft single slices, way to go! This sandwich is actually something I would crave for, the pretzel bread was just so yummy, you gotta go try it.
