It’s starting to get sunny, it’s starting to feel warmer… Is summer nearly here? The summer silly season seems to be almost in full swing, bringing with it loads of extra events, time with family, and rushing about in a flap getting organised for holidays away and the like.

It definitely looks like summer’s dragging her butt out of bed at last. This calls for a bit of summer lovin’, even though there’s never an excuse needed to give yourself a bit of love. Especially when love comes in the form of treats!


Whether it’s a weekday pick-me-up or an afternoon out with friends or family, we’ve compiled our favourite sweet treats for you to have in-centre or take away with you. Because you deserve to treat yo’self! And ta-da! Here they are:



Emoji Donuts

Try very hard to contain your excitement. Fried and sugar dusted donuts are even better when they have THE CUTEST EVER emoji icing on them! You won’t find donuts quite like this anywhere else in Palmy. Perfect for taking photos of for your Instagram feed or for nibbling on the go.

You can find them at Donut King. 

Frozen Yoghurt

Frozen yoghurt with true Kiwi heart. Did ya know that our Kiwiberri was the first self-service frozen yoghurt company to open in NZ?! With unique and delicious flavours, these MVPs are the Kiwi pioneers of the perfect sweet treat, and you can pile on your own tasty toppings to your wee heart’s content. With toppings like fresh fruit, Jaffas, Moro and Crunchie, we’re already sold.

You can find this frozen goodness at Kiwiberri. 

Oreo McFlurry

Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic, and nobody does classic better than Maccas. The marriage of crunchy Oreos expertly blended with creamy soft serve ice cream is a treat second to none for biscuit-loving bigwigs who only want the very best classic treat.

You can find this deliciousness at McDonalds. 

Cappuccino Swirl Slab

A good coffee is hard to beat, but a coffee-infused slice is even harder. Mrs Higgins’ cappuccino swirl slab is a marbled masterpiece with Kahlua and coffee undertones, with the best balance of sweet. You can even get it in a 1.9kg slab, so everybody in the family has to try this one!

You can find this treat from Mrs Higgins.

Pineapple Apricot Muffin

Fresh tart apricot. Sweet and tangy pineapple. Combine them together and you have summer in a magnificent muffin. Although we love all of Muffin Break’s creations, we’re particularly digging this sweet thing for the season. Try it with an iced drink or favourite coffee and your happiness levels will soar beyond measure, promise.

You can find this summer surprise at Muffin Break.

Monster "Freak" Shakes

Like their namesake, Wendy’s truly do make “supa” sundaes. But shaking it up a little are their scrumptious shakes – and trust me, they do not scrimp on the toppings or the flavour! Covered in ice cream cones, donuts, candy and more, these monster shakes are pretty, well, monster.

You can devour one at Wendys Supa Sundaes. 

So are your tasebuds tingling? Get on over here, what are you waiting for?!
