Sugar Coma

Or what I like to call “I’ll use any excuse to eat sweets at 730 in the morning”.

This weekend I took part in one of the most decadent events I’ve ever had the privilege of experiencing….Sugar Coma (Redux) courtesy of the incredibly talented Shameeka Ayers of The Broke Socialite.  As I was unable to join in the festivities of the inaugural Sugar Coma tour back in January, I chomped at the bit to partake in the Redux.

For those of you not lucky enough to live in driving distance of Atlanta, I’ll just sum the event up like this…

Okay, just kidding…

In a nutshell, Sugar Coma is a chauffered tour of local bakeries, sweeteries, cupcakeries, and all around really tasty restaurants. Basically, it really is an excuse to pig out on sweets. (Bet you’re interested now.)

So we started off the day at No Mas Cantina where we tasted Mexican Hot Chocolate and a divine breakfast spread (that unfortunately, my friend and I gorged ourselves on…)

Then we boarded our shuttle and headed straight to Highland Bakery.

Now, as someone who has lived in Atlanta for over a decade, I’m embarrassed to admit that I have never ventured into this bakery. Let’s just say that I won’t make that mistake again.

Then it was down the street to Cacoa Atlanta
where we were greeted by the most adorable business owner ever, Kristen Hard. A beyond talented chef whose creations take her from “bean to chocolate bar”. Seriously…this is something you must check out for yourselves.

Next we hit up Bakeshop where we were treated to these delicious pastries.

And we rounded out the event at Noon Midtown. Again, more insane treats. This time doughnuts were involved.
Not just any doughnuts though…Sumblime Doughnuts. And let’s just say that’s a story for another day.

All in all the event was truly sinful in one of those sugar rush straight to the brain kind of ways. After it was all said and done, I realized that I am one lucky girl to live in a city with such incredible culinary talent.

So- if you’re game, there will be two more Sugar Coma events happening in June in Atlanta. The really good news? Shameeka will be taking her event on the road so you too can experience the thrill of full on sugar shock.

I’ve heard rumblings of a Sugar Coma Charleston.
Charleston people!!
Who’s with me?

ps. I’m happy to report that I did in fact pace myself. So I only gained 2 lbs instead of 15.

    Amazing pics. Brings back awesome memories of the maiden voyage that I was privileged to attend. TBS Sugar Comas should be on everyone’s bucket list!

  8. Warning: Do not read this article when you are hungry and it is lunch time.

    Hmmm…what should I have for lunch? Oh yes, chocolate cake.

  9. Hi,
    I have yet to make a bakery trip like yours in France. But it could be a great idea.
    I think that some of the drivers in the pictures on my site could be conceived to have been in Sugar Comas! Check it out if you have time

    Now, that’s my kind of “pub crawl”! It all looks sooo good. Your pics are great, too. Love all the glass containers with the colorful candies. And I agree – Charleston would be awesome for something like this.
    Congrats on being freshly pressed, too!

  36. Lori Schmidt Lutze

    I’m trying to give up sweets because I can’t eat just one…………’s a tough job…………

    • lori, that sounds like me at lent every year. i think i’m going to be able to give up sweets, but the the headaches start in…the intense need for cupcakes…and it’s all over with. 🙂

  37. becky

    ohmigod. I’m salivating.

  38. srqpix

    This sounds like something that would go over really good here in Sarasota, FL…yum!

  39. Oh God. I hope they do it in Charleston, land of all things delicious. I’m up in Knoxville for the summer, someone should start one up there too. Delish!

  40. Yum! Awww… I wish I could’ve gotten tickets – it was sold out! Superb photography and tasty treats. Charleston would definitely interest me. Please keep me informed if you hear of the details.

  41. Andrea

    Oh wow we need a broke pre-med student sugar coma tour here in Seattle for our students! Yum yum! What a fantabulous idea and event thank you for sharing! I am going to see if we can’t arrange this for our group here too! We’re all broke…..maybe we can have our student gv’t pay for it as a bonding experience for us all!

  42. Sugar Coma sounds like a really good event!Both literally and figuratively. I used to live in the Atlanta area and am sad that I’ve never been fortunate enough to have this experience.Great review and I’m on the look out for the tour stops.

  43. LOOKS SO GOOD! thanks for posting.

  44. This blog is very good. Thanks for this. I will bookmark this page.
