Sugar addicts take note: olive oil gelato sundaes, Coca-Cola cupcakes, and marshmallow-filled caramels are the travel destinations you've been waiting for.

No. 8 Kansas City

10 of 21

This Missouri hub may have landed in the sweet-tooth top 10 thanks to the European pomp of its desserts: In Country Club Plaza—a big reason why the city also ranked highly for its luxury shopping—mother-and-daughter operation Natasha’s Mulberry & Mott does French pastries far beyond the simple éclairs; you can tuck into a Saint Honoré, a Religieuse or a hazelnut-meringue-layered Dacquoise. At Andre’s Confiserie Suisse, you can choose from an array of candies (like dark-chocolate-covered orange peels) and linzer or chocolate Dobosh tortes. For Americana-style refreshments, go to Snow and Co., which offers sweet “frozen cocktails” like the Rockefeller (Old Overholt rye whiskey infused with real cherries, sweet vermouth and bitters)—a fun reminder why the city also ranked in the top 10 for cocktail lounges.
