Snapchat stories are constantly filled with the same trendy places, so Royal Reporter Staff Writers Joy Joukhadar and Kaleigh Dreyer visited some of the trendiest food places in the O.C. and they had some….opinions, to say the least, about the most popular eateries around.

Creme and Sugar: I thought I would hate it, but it’s really quaint– there’s quirky antiques all over the walls, and even a little boutique in the front. Also judging by all the college kids on their laptops, there’s free wi-fi, which is always a plus. As my mom said, “It’s like Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland, but without the price!” Although expensive (the two small things we ordered came out to eighteen dollars) it’s worth it when you see the heaping piles of candy and whip cream they put on their hyped up dairy products Just make sure you don’t make coming here an everyday occurrence because, you know, diabetes.

The “Cookie Monster” milkshake that you can get at Creme and Sugar.

Nekter: The smoothies here are delicious, the scoops are enjoyable, and the aesthetic of the juicebar is very calming. But. But. BUT-the noise. The noise of a thousand blenders roaring and vegans screaming to each other across the small bar is tramatizing! So, as long as you take your disgrace of a milkshake away from the establishment, you’re sure to enjoy your healthy treat.

Afters: Although it’s been months since I’ve had ice cream, I can safely say that this is probably the best ice cream I have ever had. The ice cream by itself that is (the toppings are weird). Anyways, this place is known for its “Cookie Monster” ice cream and that’s for good reason. This mix of cookies and cream ice cream, Oreos, and Famous Amos cookies is enough to make anyone quote the famous blue monster and say, “Me want cookie!” But, the annoying thing about Afters is the lack of seating. It makes it awkward if you wanna go out for ice cream with your friends- but hey, having a dripping ice cream cone in your car is either fun or a disaster right!

Starbucks: Basic. Enough said.

The Loop: Not gonna lie–I had low expectations. A drive all the way out to Westminister for ice cream and churros just didn’t seem worth it. However, as Senior Allie Mungaray puts it, she “loves going to The Loop because it’s worth the drive!” The ice cream was great, and the churros were definitely above mediocre, and we both agree that the unnecessarily far car drive was worth it.
