Best dessert? It's What to Eat Tuesday

I had a piece of decent pumpkin pie last night.  I had been looking forward to it all day and was disappointed.

So this morning for What to Eat Tuesday I asked for some help finding a dessert that would knock me out.  I asked listeners to the Early Edition of WWL First News to text in suggestions for the best dessert around town and where to get it.

There were more than 100 suggestions, but very little agreement at all.  In fact there were not may repeats on the list.

While I wish I could pull one or two as the top recommendations, I just can't.

What I can tell you is that it made me very hungry for bread pudding with whisky sauce from a number of local restaurants, Creole cream cheese cake from Copelands, beignets from Cafe Du Monde, doberge and fresh fruit cake from Maurice, blackout cake from Tastee, a massive milk shake from Frey on Bienville and much more.
