Gayle Kurtzer-Meyers

If you have a craving for sweets, then you'll want to feast your eyes on Ciro's Sweet Tooth Dessert Tour in Winter Haven. Who can refuse gourmet desserts? I confess not me. I hear the cupcakes calling me now—time to head over to Ciro's Sweet Tooth Dessert Tour.

"Life is short and unpredictable. Eat the dessert first." -Helen Keller-

A sweet tooth's delight

There are many delicious treats to sample on Ciro's Sweet Tooth Dessert tour. There is coffee, tea, the Mexican Flan, ice cream with infused olive oil, gourmet-filled cookies, Thai Custard with sticky rice, a wide selection of chocolates from around the world, and more. I can't begin to name everything. But take my word, the options are endless.

In addition, they offer you the opportunity to taste sweet and savory delights from Japanese, Italian, and Bistro restaurants. There is nothing like going around the world with a satisfied sweet tooth.

Embrace the moment

Many of the participating restaurants are popular among us locals including, Arrabellas Restorante, Harry's Seafood & Bar Grill, and Harborside. Food shops and restaurants are more than happy to welcome you with their best selection, where you will discover so many new tastes. The local pastry artists are passionate about their great recipes and eager to share their secrets, but I'd rather continue drowning in dessert than discovering the secret. There is always Google for that.

So many pastries, pies, muffins, cakes, and cookies, so little time. Why must this tour end?

"I am starting to think that maybe memories are like this dessert. I eat it, and it becomes a part of me, whether I remember it later or not." -Erica Bauermeister-

Age is not a factor

There is no age restriction for kids to join the tour. I only suggest you hang onto your cookies as the little ones might grab one right off your plate. Yea, ok, it is not just the children you have to watch out for. Some of us adults are cookie monsters at heart. I know someone that fits that description. How about you?

I recommend booking tours at least 48 hours before arrival to avoid crowds on the day of your visit. In addition, family and friends can arrange private tours at any time. Tours are limited to 10 attendees, so gather up your favorite people and leave the rest at home noshing on kale and dandelions.

The tours run every week starting at 10 AM. Tour times are updated on their website. During Ciro's Sweet Tooth and Desert Tour, most desserts combine diversity in culture and history. The tours are in small, intimate groups with a licensed and certified tour guide. This way, you get the full flavor of not only the dessert but also the area. In Winter Haven, you'll discover many family-owned shops and restaurants that have been in business for many years. Many will also offer sweet tooth samplings as well. But, of course, one can never have too much dessert. Right?

Historical background of my self proclaimed dessert capitol

The city of Winter Haven in Florida is a popular destination for residents, visitors, and of course, a sugarholic or two. Winter Haven lies in the middle of a cluster of small lakes 25 kilometers east of Lakeland. So whether you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or explore the city, it's all here for you.

Winter Haven is in Polk County, and it is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Florida. The initial name of the city was Harris Corner (after a family who owned a local store), then later was changed to Winter Haven. The city's main economic mainstreams are tourism and the citrus industry.

About the event

The tickets are available online for purchase. Ticket holders will find the exact meeting point and parking instructions encrypted on their tickets. The events are weather-dependent; hence you should wear comfortable clothing. An umbrella would be ideal since they typically occur in conditions of rain or sunshine. You are in Florida, so it is usually sunny or raining. As a native Floridian, I'd say there is a 50% chance of one or the other. Who cares as long as there is dessert.

Booking the tour

Tours for individuals are roughly around $65 per adult, with add-on packages available for all. Kids from 12 years and below pay about $48.15, although the prices may vary with season.

Upcoming events

Special sweet tooth tours are currently scheduled for :

  • July 24
  • August 7
  • September 11
  • October 16
  • November 6
  • December 17

The schedules are subject to change, so I suggest you confirm dates on the Ciro's Sweet Dessert Tour website.

The last savory bite

Ciro's Sweet Dessert Tour in Winter Haven, Florida, is a must-attend event. Their team guarantees your safety and the most memorable moments with your family and friends. But the extra 10lbs you gain after the tour, well, that's on you.

Have you heard the saying what goes on your lips goes on your hips? It may be true, but from my experience, Ciro's Dessert Tour was worth it.

Time to go workout now. I'll catch you on the next tour.
