One of the favorite parts of my job (aka: owning my own business) is the opportunities I get to travel. Last month my work took me to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
This was my first visit to South Carolina and I made sure to make the most of it. I ate at a delicious cash-only burger bar, the "best Thai in town," and of course the local cupcake shop.
Coccadotts has four locations: Albany, NY, Clifton Park, NY, Loudonville, NY, and Myrtle Beach, SC. I knew I had to visit them because Coccadotts won Cupcake Wars in 2013.
The problem with Coccadotts is that they had 40 flavors to choose from! My stomach is only so big. After staring at my choices for a few minutes, I finally made my decisions.
Sea Salt Caramel: Vanilla cake with vanilla frosting, topped with salted caramel drizzle. This cupcake was a bit plain to me, but I'm not a vanilla vanilla fan. The drizzle made it a bit more interesting, so I'm glad it had that.
Snickas: Vanilla cake with chocolate icing, topped and filled with Snickers chunks. I was hoping for a more thick chocolaty frosting, but this one was whipped, light, and airy. My favorite part was the chunk of Snickers in the middle.
Shirley Temple: Cherry flavored cake with cherry champagne buttercream, topped with cherry filling, a dollop of buttercream, and a cherry. I loved the meld of flavors in this cupcake. Very unique. The frosting was a bit too sweet for me though.
OMG: Saved the best for last! Let's start the description from the bottom up: a whole Oreo cookie, a layer of peanut butter, chocolate cake, topped with chocolate buttercream, then dipped in white peanut butter chocolate (see below). Not kinda amazing, but over-the-top AMAZING! I knew this cupcake was trouble, but I ate the whole thing anyway. So worth it!!
There are a lot of good qualities about Coccadotts: variety of flavors, low cost ($2.50 per cupcake), and good-looking decorations. There are way too many cupcakes to try, so I'll definitely be heading back to Coccadotts the next time I'm near one.
