You know, Religion and I aren't on the best of terms.

But this kind of ice cream? It's the kind that could make a girl a believer!

If you're looking for high-quality soft serve, that embraces that over-the-top ice cream trend, then look no further than Sweet Jesus in Downtown Toronto.

I'm trying these new things called eating healthy and working out. (You may have heard of them...?)

To balance my ravenous sweet tooth, though, I keep a weekly cheat day around. So what you see here are the result of two very well-earned desserts. (#16PoundsDown!)

On my first go, I tried the Oh Sweet Baby Jesus! cone. They were out of caramel soft serve that night, so I chose a mixture of chocolate soft serve with the usual cover of peanut butter and caramel goodness.

It was so good, that I went back for round two a couple of weeks later to try my hand at Krusty the Cone#IWillTakeAlltheCottonCandyPlease

The flavor pairings are completely on point. Vanilla and Cotton Candy? Caramel and Peanut Butter? (There's Red Velvet and Cream Cheese, Lemon and Coconut.. the pairs go on and on!)

But what really get's me is their soft serve. Oh Em Gee, is it good!

As a ride-or-die hard ice cream fan, this is the best soft-serve ice cream I've ever had! It's creamy and rich like a custard, but still soft enough in texture to be soft-serve ice cream.

I really wasn't sure what to make of this place. Most of the Yelp reviews have a common theme: Over-hyped.

I'm not really one for bandwagons (I mean, I chose the Mets as my baseball team during the height of the Yankee dynasty...) and yes, there's a tonnn of hype about this place. When close friends stayed with us a few weeks back, we decided to just give it a go.

I have no idea what ice cream those naysayers tried because Sweet Jesus is bomb!

The lines are almost always out the door, and sometimes around the corner, so try to stop by on a weeknight or an off-time. But their ice cream is worth the wait, worth the effort ,and worth the cheat meal.

 I certainly plan on burning a few extra calories on that treadmill this summer to earn another Sweet Jesus cone.
