Sweet new store opens
Pop-up dessert bar set to delight and tempt with its delicious, decadent treats
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.”
