One of the tradition of Halloween is Trick or Treat and I had an opportunity to experience a well organised Trick or Treat in Bandra by TimeOut Mumbai – Halloween Dessert Crawl
The Crawl for desserts started at the Ellipsis Bakery inside Godrej Nature’s Basket where organisers handed over a Crawl Booklet with all the information about the event and 10 participating outlets.
Along with Booklet, they also gave us voucher from Flintstop. Flintstop, an online place to find the wackiest product to the creative one. Follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to get update on the latest products and offers!

I was amazed to see the outcome of the event, many kids and youngsters, came dressed up in the scariest costume. From Vampire to Adams Family to Fairy to Harry Potter to Dexter (Serial killer one), the event was buzzing and people were excited to head for their Trick or Treat.
Anyone can start their crawl and head to dessert outlet based on their choice and convenience. All you have to do is head to the outlet, show your booklet, get stamped and your free dessert.

I started my Halloween Dessert Crawl with Chocolate Fudge Brownie at Ellipsis Bakery. The yummy chocolate brownie and so heavy that I was dreading my crawl and more desserts on the way.

I headed my way towards Mamagoto to get another stamp on my Crawl Booklet with Caramel Pastry. The pastry was decent, the sponge cake was soft with caramel layer on the top.

The Next stop on the crawl was Sassy Teaspoon. The team has props where one can click a funky picture with props and get discount on their next visit. They offered Carrot Cake, which personally, I didn’t like it much. However, the place was happening with great interiors.

Heading ahead, we went to Brooke Bond Taj Mahal Tea House. Again a brilliant place to hang out in the evening time with various tea options available on their menu. My Crawl Stamp earned me one of their Tea along with Scones to munch. Tea was fabulous compared to their macrons.

Moving ahead in my crawl, we headed to get a drink at Cool Story. The options available were Guava and Mango, we opted for Mango slush. It was a refreshing drink and definitely break from dessert eating.

Next to Cool Story was Bombay Waffle Co. The most crowded place of all, Bombay Waffle offered their signature waffles in three flavour – Chocolate Mousse, Red Velvet and Regular Vanilla. Obviously, my choice was Chocolate. This was the heaviest dish out of all I ate so far!

The crawl continues and we head to another amazing place, The Boston Cupcakery. They had many options to choose from Macroons and eggless Cupcakes for Vegetarians. We went to their Eggless Pan flavour Cupcake. The Pan Cupcake had gulkand flavour with base of chocolate. Perfect combination!

My stomach was already full, however, crawl was yet to get over. The break from dessert like Cake was offered when we headed to Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Personally I am not fan of yogurt, but Menchie’s had one of the best one I had. We choose Chocolate Mint flavour and it was as good as chocolate ice cream.

Last stop to the crawl was Raasta. The ambience of the place is good, however, their offering was literally too small. They gave us smallest serving of chocolate mousse possible. Since we were full with all the desserts offered by other outlets, I didn’t mind gulping Chocolate Mousse.

There was another stop in Halloween Dessert Crawl name Scoopalicious – Ice Cream Truck, sadly, we couldn’t locate them in the entire experience at Hill Road or also at Bandstand where it was suppose to be.
Overall, an amazing event and really filling from all the desserts I had from best of place in Mumbai. I had to skip my dinner to digest all the sweetness I had!
Thanks to TimeOut Mumbai to arrange an event closer to Halloween Tradition and I am surely looking forward to my next crawl. 😀
