If you are up for a quite different dessert experience, you must go to this unique rice pudding place called Rice To Riches. With the ultimate rice pudding fan in town to visit me (my mom), there was no question it was time to try one or two of the amazing and constantly changing flavors of rice pudding they offer. The décor is retro and modern, matching perfectly to their whole new dessert idea. They have all kinds of concoctions from fruity to chocolate-based to plain. You can add an assortment of ”soul mates” (toppings) to your flavor choice too. I chose to enjoy the “Cinnamon Sling with Raisins” topped with “Mischief” (buttery graham cracker blanket). All I have to say is AMAZING. So creamy and rich it delights your taste buds instantly! My mom got the “Understanding Vanilla” with a “Cloud 9”(whipped cream), and my boyfriend got the “Man-Made Mascarpone with Cherries” and “Cloud 9” on top. It was so hard to decide, but they let you taste as many as you want before choosing. We were all in Heaven! A little fare warning though, order the smallest size if you are by yourself. I could only eat half, and I can eat a dessert believe me!!! Not to worry though since they come in adorable plastic containers that you can put right in the fridge. You can keep the spoon or “shoehorn” looking utensil too. I would love them to create a dish where you can have maybe 3 different kinds in small amounts at once since they are so rich. It was definitely a delightful experience. What a unique idea!
They ship anywhere in the USA too, so you can enjoy whether a New Yorker or not!
