THE desserts have been de­scribed as a “party in your mouth” and “hit­ting the spot”, and now What The Fudge dessert bar is at Mt Druitt to tempt res­i­dents with its deca­dent de­lights.

The fran­chise has just opened a pop-up store in­side West­field Mt Druitt, and there is some­thing to sat­isfy ev­ery sweet tooth, from the in­dul­gent deep-fried Golden Gay­time to the choco­holic, heav­enly Nutella bomb milk­shake.

The pop-up style shop builds on from the highly suc­cess­ful Cabra­matta store, which has been open in John St for more than two years.

The Stan­dard stopped in this week to see what the fuss was all about, and What The Fudge did not dis­ap­point.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor An­drew Duong de­scribed the flavour of the busi­ness’s de­li­cious sig­na­ture Golden Gay­time dish as “a party in your mouth”.

“I have al­ways had a pas­sion for dessert and we have made just the per­fect mix­ture,” Mr Duong said.

“It is not too sweet — it just hits the spot.

“I have al­ways been a big fan of ice cream and that’s where the Golden Gay­time came from; it is hot and crispy on the out­side and cold on the in­side.

“It is a party in your mouth.”

Mr Duong said that, since it opened, What The Fudge had re­ceived ac­co­lades as one of the best dessert bars in the state and was re­cently com­pared to the likes of gelato giant Messina and celebrity chef Adri­ano Zumbo, af­ter be­ing named one of the top 10 dessert bars in Syd­ney.

And with peo­ple trav­el­ling from all over Syd­ney just to get a taste, it is easy to see why.

“My cus­tomers were trav­el­ling from Mt Druitt or Black­town or Pen­rith, to come to the Cabra­matta store,” Mr Duong said.

“I chose to open this store at Mt Druitt be­cause I be­lieve this area is re­ally grow­ing.

“There is a huge de­mand for this kind of thing here, as there is not much else around.”
