 Too pretty to eat. Those words have likely been used countless times to describe the amazing sweet creations at Sucre in New Orleans.

 Even the graphics and decor throughout the shop are gorgeous.

 Son Travis tried the Raspberry gelato after sampling countless other flavors. Thought we were going to have to pay for all those tiny plastic spoons after a while! I tried the Coconut Basil gelato. Yep, sounds bizarre but it really did work. The basil note was noticeable but not overpowering. Dreamsicle is another popular flavor. I loved the pistachio — but I am a massive pistachio nut.

My wife Eileen popped a couple colorful macaroons. They come in an incredible array of flavors and pretty much any color you would find in a rainbow.

Call it a candy boutique, if you wish. I call it SWEET!
