Robicelli’s @ DeKalb Market: All In
“If you’re gonna eat a dessert, and you’re gonna eat 5 billion calories, you need to be all in. You need to be 100% present and remember what the hell you’re doing.”
- Allison Robicelli
Let me tell you a little bit about Robicelli’s.
It all started earlier this year when I had my first Robicelli’s cupcake. Even before I bought the cupcake, and I stood before the four flavors to be chosen from at Crespella, I knew this would be different. There were no vanilla cupcakes! No chocolate! And certainly no sprinkles! And thank goodness, because fuck that.
Cupcakes are great and all, but vanilla is vanilla and chocolate is chocolate and I’m 24 years old. I’ve had enough chocolate and vanilla, goddammit! These are cupcakes for grown-ups who want something new and interesting but still in that familiar, comforting, handheld package that is so gloriously American and nostalgic.
