If you missed it, go read about what we did in Ocean City, New Jersey last week. Enjoy the absence of food photos while you’re there because below are the 5 best things I ate in Ocean City, in no particular order. We were told several times by Brian’s uncle and aunt that Ocean City is not known for having impressive food, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t enjoy what we had. We made sure to indulge in all the boardwalk favorites (gelato, frozen custard, smoothies, fries, taffy, funnel cake…), as well as a few other local establishments.
My mother believes that 95% of the photos I took on vacation were of food. I beg to differ but this post isn’t going to help my case.

5. Mallon’s Sticky Buns
Mallon’s Sticky Buns came recommended by Brian’s dad. Silly me, I presumed that sticky buns would be round cinnamon buns, which aren’t high on my list of breakfast favorites. I was pleased to discover that’s not what Mallon’s offered; they serve a number of different flavors of sticky buns in a variety of flavors-apricot, blueberry, boysenberry, pineapple, etc. You can only order by the half dozen or dozen, so we walked out with 6 raspberry sticky buns. I was originally concerned that we wouldn’t be able to eat them all, but we managed (it did take us all day though). The buns were very sticky and heavy, but the fruit filling was delectable. (And they ship too!)
Those sticky buns sound delectable and maybe a little too sweet for my tastes, but I’m sure if I was in the same situation, I would’ve indulged. :)
