Mempops Red Popsicle

Whoever said Breakfast was the most important meal of the day most definitely wasn’t from Memphis! While we’ve gained international fame for our BBQ (which is well deserved, might I say), it’s time we highlighted another hometown hero – dessert!

Here’s a list of five of the most satisfying and (mostly) guilt-free desserts you can get for delivery right here in Memphis. 

Popsicles from Mempops

Choose from more than 15 cream flavors or 13 fruit flavors of all-natural handcrafted popsicles. Cream flavors include pistachio, salted caramel, key lime pie, Mexican chocolate, and coffee caramel.

Call Chris to schedule delivery, (901) 596-6293, and don’t forget to read our previous article on Mempops!

Avocado Brownies from Guilt Free Pastries 

Fifteen years ago Chef Brandon had an awakening leading him to shed 125 pounds and take his weight from an unhealthy 300 pounds to a healthy 175 pounds. In February 2013, he discovered his allergic reaction to gluten and decided to take matters into his own hands. After 3 months of experimenting with gluten and grain-free recipes, he created his one of a kind Avocado Brownies. The delicious twist on the old favorite also does not contain refined sugar or butter. All ingredients are organic and sourced locally. Minimum $15 order for delivery. Free delivery for $125+ orders. 

Oatmeal Chocolate Walnut Cookies from Insomnia Cookies

This bakery chain is known for its late-night deliveries, and their mouthwatering cookies, brownies, cookie cakes, and ice cream. We recommend the oatmeal chocolate walnut cookie. This spin on the classic oatmeal and raisins cookie is filled with chocolate chunks, walnuts, brown sugar, and rolled oats. You can order two cookies just for yourself, paired with a glass of cold milk. Or order fifty if you’re planning to entertain.  

Bite-Sized Bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes 

Founders Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz joined kitchens in 1997 with a simple goal: make cakes for their friends and family. Today Nothing Bundt Cakes is a nationwide brand built upon Dena and Debbie’s initial vision. Each bakery still has the warmth and nostalgia of its home-kitchen roots. We recommend trying their bite-sized Bundtinis. Flavors include chocolate-chocolate chip, red velvet, marble, white chocolate raspberry, pecan praline, confetti, carrot, lemon, and classic vanilla. 

Ice Cream from Ben & Jerry’s 

With more than 60 flavors, the national favorite that started in 1978 with two guys and a dream, is guaranteed to satisfy every one of your dessert cravings. From staples like their good old chocolate to their award-winning vanilla, Ben & Jerry’s colorful pints are recognizable all over the world. The Memphis location is locally owned and operated. You can order one scoop or two of your favorite flavor. They also serve sundaes, shakes, and fresh and pre-packed pints.
