   Sweets such as pies, cakes, milkshakes and delectable truffles often tickle the sweet bud’s fancy but cause traumatic distress to the wallet. There is a magical place known as Just Desserts, however, where sweets are their game and they stay true to their name.
The mastermind behind all the beloved sweetness is the Korty family. Chris and Lisa create the culinary confections seen throughout the store and run the business, and their children, Josh and Alyssa, can be seen putting artistic flare around the place and smiles on the customers’ faces.
Just Desserts is simply “unique and the only one of its kind around town,” said Chris Korty, “with the selection of homemade desert toppings, cheesecakes, cookies and more.”
One of the sweetest things about Just Desserts is its prices. Lots of places charge as much for dessert as they do a meal itself, but Just Desserts has extremely fair prices, meant to be “realistic for the average person in this economy,” Chris Korty said.
Cupcakes are all under $2, large decadent cake pieces around $4 and gourmet chocolates are $10 a pound. It would take almost two dozen truffles to even reach a pound.
Just Desserts is at 2306-A South Church St., Burlington. For more details, call (336) 417-2607 or visit www.facebook.com/just dessertyum.
