Dessert makes a meal complete. But some people choose to skip this delicious part for varied reasons. Some are concerned about the extra calories while others may worry about potential health effects. Eating your choice of sweets or treats, however, does not have to be a bad thing. It may even stop needless cravings that may result from putting too much restriction on your diet. And there is nothing quite like the experience of tasting the unique and delectable desserts different counties have to offer. Here are some of the world’s best desserts that you would not want to miss out on your travels.
Apple Pie – USA
Apple pie is your quintessential American dessert. While there is no dearth of delicious treats to choose from when visiting the country, apple pie is something you still would not want to miss from the land that has long been associated with it. Imagine digging in to a scrumptious concoction of apple slices wrapped in a crust. You can even enjoy it many different ways – from a warm slice topped with vanilla ice cream or some serving of cheddar cheese on the side among others.
Banoffee Pie – England
Banoffee first came to the epicurean scene in a pub in England in 1972. This great-tasting dessert makes use of ingredients that include bananas, cream, and toffee. A delicious treat on its own or paired with a cup of coffee.
Baklava – Turkey
Baklava is a dessert made with sweet layers of filo dough and chopped nuts. The mixture is held together by drizzling or soaking it with honey or sweet syrup.
Belgian waffles – Belgium
Belgium is home to delicious waffles. You can have your pick of the famous Brussels waffle or the Liège waffle. It is one of the country’s best known street snacks.
Brigadeiro – Brazil

Crème brûlée – France
Crème brûlée is a dessert that consists of creamy custard with a hard caramelized sugar topping. The richness and soft texture of the custard provides a delightful contrast to the hardness of the caramel topping.
