There are not many desserts that I won’t eat…and enjoy thoroughly. A tiny bit of something sweet is the perfect finale to every meal. I even keep semi-sweet chocolate baking chips in my freezer, for a quick fix. I would have never thought that there would be a strange dessert in the world. But, I may have found it.

After having foie gras at Feast Restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, we headed over to The Monterey for the Apple and Cheddar pop-tart.

I originally wanted to indulge in the Chocolate & Gingerbread Ho-Ho, but they were eighty-sixed by the time we arrived. That’s okay. I had fond memories of the homemade pop tarts at Bouchon Bakery in Yountville and have been coveting the perfect replacement ever since they removed it from their pastry repertoire.

I started my sugar-high with the Cinnamon Hot Chocolate topped with toasted marshmallows. This was not a strange dessert. Not by a long shot.

I plucked each pillow of heaven off separately and then sipped the very sweet, rich liquid below. This would have been enough to cure my sweet tooth. But, I have no willpower.

An unidentifiable object arrived at the table. With its heavy layer of shredded white cheddar, it definitely did not resemble a typical dessert. Odd.

I like cheese. I like pastry crust. I like apples.

And individually, the dough had the perfect balance of flaky and crunchy, the cheese was fresh, the apple was tart, yet sweet. Together? It was a strange dessert. I kept going in for another bite just to see if this unfamiliar combination would become friends in my mouth. Nope.

I am going back to The Monterey. For the Ho-Ho.

Have you ever had this strange dessert combination? What’s the strangest dessert you have ever eaten?
