Thus, when I saw Guylian cafe in the list for Sugar Hit, I never really considered that until I saw this.
OMG how good does that look?!
And so, I dragged the boy with me for a post-dinner dessert on the next day.
When we were about to order, we thought, rather than having two identical sugar hits, why don't we order one sugar hit and another Guylian cake? And I asked for a hot chocolate instead of the matching wine since I don't really like sparkling wines.

Rich rich rich hot chocolate. A cup of steaming hot chocolate poured on a piece of chocolate until it's all melted and gooey and then you stir them together creating an awesome chocolate shot.
And here comes the original sugar hit dessert...
The sugar hit was really nice and not overly sweet/rich, until we realised that we might have made a mistake by ordering this.

In other words, this cake is all sorts of chocolate. The 'cake' or mousse itself was actually very smooth and decadently rich. But, only for chocolate lovers! I would have enjoyed this so much more, had I not devoured a cup of thick hot chocolate AND a sugar hit dessert, after having dinner. Since the boy only had a few scoops of each cake and a sip of the hot chocolate, it was a one woman job to finish all those three.
By the end of the night, I had this massive sugar stroke. My head was pounding. I felt really sluggish till the next morning lol I could've failed a glucose tolerance test if I were to have one. Oh well, I guess there is a thin line between pleasure and pain, and that cake was truly 100% pure pleasure ;)
