photo 1-4Sweet baby Jesus! Look, if you are in anyway sensitive to sugar, or your family has a propensity to contract diabetes, just stay away from Dubai.

At every turn there are new cakes, confectionery, candy and frozen dessert stores. It’s relentless. Remember when you were a kid, and you just wished that all you could eat, forever, was cake and ice cream? Yes? Well, Dubai makes that a very, very real possibility!

Pinkberry is a chain of frozen yoghurt stores dotted around the various malls here – and you simply HAVE to have one. Your life is quite incomplete without having tried one of their fruit flavours.

I was quite taken with the coconut yoghurt, topped with fresh kiwi fruit, and the new strawberry flavour brought memories flooding back of childhood parties where I would always pick out the strawberry Sugus candy from the sweet bowls and go eat them in a deserted corner, locked in a world of private, sugary delight.

But none of these compare to the sweet, tangy taste of the pomegranate frozen yoghurt. With fresh pomegranate – just in case you were afraid you wouldn’t get enough pomegranate.

I have no idea how I am going to survive back home without a regular supply of this. I really don’t.
