The 7 Best Desserts From All Across The World

As I have traveled throughout the world, I have been able to discover some of its best foods. More importantly, I have eaten some of the best and most underrated desserts! Here are my favorites.

1. Trdelnik - Czech Republic

This dessert is by far my favorite. It is a cylindrical bread-based pastry that locals cover with cinnamon sugar or nuts. Often, more modern versions will line the inside with chocolate or fill it with ice cream!

2. Stroopwafel - The Netherlands

These are becoming more popularized in the United States and are often sold at coffee shops. Don't be fooled though, they taste MUCH better in the Netherlands. It consists of two layers of thinly baked dough with a caramel-like filling. When warm, they taste great with coffee or tea.

3. S'mores - U.S.A.

I had to include this is a popular American dessert for my international friends, as it is widely unknown around the world. All three of these ingredients taste much better together than apart. No campfire is complete without them!

4. Brigadeiros - Brazil

These have also gained popularity since Tasty made a video on them. They consist of sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter. Typically, they are served at Brazilian birthday parties in balls covered in chocolate sprinkles; however, the more Americanized versions are often made with coconut, rainbow sprinkles, or nuts.

5. Affogato - Italy

This typical Italian dessert is a mix of my two favorite things: gelato and espresso. They simply pour the espresso over gelato and wait for you to be amazed by the great flavor. Though I would recommend going to Italy and trying the real thing, some gelato shops in the U.S. sell it as well!

6. Matcha Crepe Cake - Japan

I was extremely skeptical about this dessert, as I'm sure you are while looking at it now. It consists of thin layers of crepe dough with a creamy, green tea filling. I wish I had something to compare it to, but since I don't, you'll have to see (or taste) for yourself!

7. Tres Leches - Mexico

I finally tried a homemade version of this cake and I'm so glad I did! Served cold, this three-layer cake is a classic and is a must if you go to Mexico any time.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
