    The Bite Before Christmas @Bite_Bar

    “Tis the season of indulging, sharing time with family and friends and…biting?”

    December is less than a month away, which means the holiday season/Christmas are like tomorrow (not really but you get what I mean.) So seeing as it’s already freezing cold like the holiday season, and Christmas is right around the corner; I vote that the holiday season starts now. And what better way to kick off the holiday season than with something sweet and Christmasy!

    sweet goodness!

    Nisha, found of Toronto’s premiere bite-sized dessert bar Bite Bar, recently invited us to a tasting preview of the Bite Bar Holiday menu. If you’re a dessert lover like me, you can only imagine how excited I was to get there, and get to tasting ALL of the sweet treats! The menu was mouthwatering, featuring items like Naughty and Nice Bite sized chocolate cookie sandwiches with Bite Bar’s signature raspberry vodka buttercream, Candy Cane Chocolate Cheesecakelettes, Bite Bar’s Cranberry Apple Spiked Cider and more! Our night was made even sweeter as we got to hang out with some of our favourite bloggers; and you know it was only a matter of time before we were laughing, taking selfies, as well as  tweeting, instagraming, and Facebooking all the decadence that we were being treated to. It was a deliciously fun night 🙂 Okay enough talking, more pictures. Enjoy!

    Hey Nisha
    Such a fun night!

    Some of my favourite things about the Bite Bar preview? I enjoyed all the treats, but I loved loved LOVED the Candy Cane Chocolate Cheesecakelettes, the Bite Bar Cranberry Apple Spiked Cider was the bomb, I absolutely adored the Bite Bar wall, and of course it’s always fun times hanging out with some of my favourite people! Oh I also love that I was able to eat as many different treats as I wanted without feeling full and/or sick, all because of the cute (and tasty) little bite sizes! Bonus!!

    A big thank you to Nisha for inviting us and spoiling us rotten with delicious treats and drinks. We had an amazing time as you can see!

    stay sweet!
