OKG7 sweets to eat

Jenn Scott July 3rd, 2012

Have a sweet tooth? We’ve got your fix! From custard to cake pops, just make sure to brush your teeth after indulging. Cavities, y’know.

Custard Factory

1000 E. Alameda, Norman


First things first: Try the custard cookie ($3.09). Choose your frozen custard flavor, which will be smooshed between two cookies. Have your pick between double chocolate, chocolate-chip vanilla or peanut butter chocolate-chip cookies. If you’re on the go, grab a fudge brownie sundae ($4.09). On Sunday, enjoy an oldfashioned banana split for $3.

Orange Leaf

849 S.W. 119th


The most difficult thing about Orange Leaf is trying to decide on a flavor and topping combination. With frozen yogurt flavors like coffee, red velvet and lychee, it’s possible to make everyone happy at this locale. Top your fro-yo with fruit like mango or pear, or get quirky with Fruity Pebbles or sunflower seeds. You’ll be charged by the ounce, so pack on as many treats as you’d like!

Sara Sara Cupcakes

7 N.W. Ninth


For breakfast, try its bacon, egg and cheese cupcake ($3.25) or maybe a cinnamon roll cupcake ($3.25) if you’re in the mood for sweets. Make sure you take the daily special ($3.25) with you, which ranges from carrot to triple white chocolate. If you’re dining in, don’t miss out on the milk bar. You can get a glass ($3) of white, chocolate, strawberry or its seasonal flavor.

Raspberries ’n’ Creme

2925 Lakeside Circle


If you’ve never had the treat of a Raspberries ’n’ Creme creation, get on the phone now and place that order. Perfect for summer is the strawberry and banana dream cake ($23.50-$33.50), a white cake layered with bananas, strawberries, whipped cream and Italian cream. The whole thing is iced with whipped cream and topped with seasonal flowers. It’s a delight from first sight to last bite. The bakery also caters weddings.

42nd Street Candy Co.

4200 N. Western


Have you ever wished for a candy buffet? Of course you have. Make that dream a reality at 42nd Street Candy. From candy-coated chocolates ($11.50/pound) in every color imaginable, to truffles ($1.50-$5.50) to saltwater taffy ($6.99/ pound), you’ll be more than impressed with the selection in this little sugar-filled haven. Create a blue- or pink-themed gift for a new baby with Sixlets ($9/pound) or “It’s a boy (or girl)!” suckers and Jelly Belly jelly beans.

CocoFlow Chocolate Cafe

100 E. Main


Sip on a macchiato ($2.75) or drinking chocolate ($3.75) while you munch on a petite cake ($2.50) or handcrafted biscotti ($2). If you’re in a generous mood, create a truffle box ($16-$60) out of the more than 15 flavors. Bonbon boxes ($16-$54) make perfect gifts or treats after a busy week at work.

Pinkitzel Cupcakes & Candy

150 E. E.K. Gaylord


“Pinkitzel” means extravagance in the world of sweets. OK, not really. It actually is a combo of the word “pink” and Yiddish word “kitzel,” which means tickled. You’ll be tickled pink at the selection in this candy emporium. From blueberry cheesecake cupcakes to taffy, you’re in for a treat. The shop has three party rooms to be used for your events and will even deliver you if you’re having a sweet emergency. Like them on Facebook or stay updated at pinkitzel.com.
