5 Must-Try Sweets in Trinidad & Tobago

#1  Coconut Sweet Bread (Syps Restaurant & Bar) – Truly a special treat because this moist, crunchy slice of perfection is not actually on the menu.  Ms. Merle occasionally makes Coconut Sweet Bread and when she does, you know it’s your lucky day!

#2  Pain Aux Raisin (Peche Patisserie) – One of the few places in Trinidad and Tobago selling French pastries, Peche’s Pain Aux Raisin hits all the right notes — buttery, flaky, moist and a touch of sweetness courtesy of the raisins. (The Pain Au Chocolat is also a must-try at Peche Patisserie.)

#3  Chocolate from the Tobago Cocoa Estate – Six words on the packaging tell the whole story – Artisan Chocolate. Single Estate. Trinitario Cocoa.  Made from some of the world’s finest cacao, the Tobago Cocoa Estate‘s Dark Chocolate bars are available at Malabar Farms, Fernandes Fine Wines (West Mall), Maison Du Chocolat (West Mall) in Trinidad and Moreshead Gourmet Market in Tobago.

#4 Ponche de Creme Brulee (Caffe del Mare) – A glorious way to enjoy the taste of ponche de creme all year long.  Make sure you pair your Ponce de Creme Brulee with a coffee drink (Caffe del Mare uses one of our favourite imported coffees, Hausbrandt).
