Best Corner for Sugar Addicts

The Intersection of Northeast 45th Street and Wallingford Avenue

Wallingford residents are coming to realize that in the middle of their sleepy neighborhood lies a veritable Bermuda Triangle of sugary hazards. At the intersection of Northeast 45th Street and Wallingford Avenue is a corridor of the city that's like a sweet tooth's version of heaven and a dieter's easiest route to disaster—with Molly Moon's ice cream, Trophy Cupcakes, High 5 Pie (at Fuel Coffee), and Fainting Goat Gelato all within a block of one another. Just driving past is enough to induce a sugar rush. Attempt to remain strong against the siren song of Trophy's Valrhona chocolate cupcakes; High 5's hand-held pie, the "Flipside" (perfect for eating in the car, by the way); Molly Moon's "Scout" mint ice cream (good enough to corrupt any Girl Scout); or Fainting Goat's authentically-made gelatos (they're open late!). As you try to escape the danger zone, know that the only cure is taking 50th Street, or just accepting that many long hours at the gym are in your future.—Suzie Rugh
