If Buzzfeed says it, it has to be true.

Earlier this month, everyone's favorite time-wasting website rounded up the nation's best sweet treats. Titled "Desserts to Try in Each of the 50 States," the article uncovers the No. 1 must-try dessert shop in every state. Of course, Missouri couldn't be left out of the fun — and the Show Me State's winner is right in the Loop.

That's right — Piccione Pastry (6197 Delmar Boulevard, 314-932-1355) is Missouri's must-try dessert destination.

There aren't any details about why each winner was chosen; Buzzfeed must have assumed we could skip that when we have a plethora of desserts to try. In Piccione Pastry's case, that means from-scratch Italian pastries and gelato, in addition to Italian coffee and breakfast and lunch menus.

The late-night Italian pastry shop provides fun twists on traditional desserts that the shop's chefs make from scratch. For those looking to try Missouri's must-try dessert spot ASAP, you can expect fun seasonal flavors such as pumpkin gooey butter cake and toasted s'mores cassata cake to be on the menu.

“It is quite a treat to be recognized by the BuzzFeed Community,” Piccione Pastry chef Sandia Hoormann said. “Our original recipes have been passed through the Piccione family for almost 100 years; we work hard to provide guests with unique and seasonal twists on authentic Italian cookies, pastries, cakes and more!”
