|Specialty Sweets 849 Stillwater Avenue, Bangor ME|
Today I was craving something sweet and cold, but not ice cream. Gelato was my craving. Where do you go in Bangor to get some Gelato? Why Specialty Sweets of course! Besides being an amazing store filled with candy, chocolates and fudge they also are now serving gelato from Gelato Fiasco, a company based in Brunswick. I got to sample all the flavors available and each one was delicious. I had a nice chat with Eliza Butler, one of the store's owners who filled me in about their offering of gelato. Next time I have a sweet craving I know I will have to visit this store. I would recommend liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter @bangorsweets to see what they are up to like making fudge or covering something yummy in chocolate.

Today I decided to go check out the new bakery that my friends have been mentioning as a great place to grab lunch. Massimo's Breads opened last week on 130 Hammond Street in Bangor. Its an Italian artisan bakery that has breads, pizza, sweets and sandwiches. Its only a few steps away from Massimo's Cucina Italiana up the hill. While I waited I got to try samples of their pizza and bread which were very yummy. I loved the design of the bakery which was beautiful and simplistic. The staff was very nice and the bakery has a cozy atmosphere. I ordered the campagna panini (turkey, provolone and basil pesto) which was delicious and a large serving. They also have assorted coffee and espresso drinks available. I would recommend this bakery as a great place to go and grab lunch and bring it back to the office and make your coworkers jealous.

I went with a group of friends to the Bangor City Forest to go geocaching. Per Geocaching.com, geocaching is described as "a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online." The Bangor City Forest is a great place to try geocaching. Its a fun and free activity that the whole family can enjoy while out for a walk because there is numerous geocaches located in the forest.
