Gooey: goo·ey [goo-ee] – adjective: originating from within the impeccable walls of Dockside Restaurant, a “Gooey” is a scrumptious dessert filled with layers of delectable toppings, glazes, sauces, candies, sweets, and treats.
Well there you have it folks: our signature Gooey is undoubtedly the greatest and most supreme dessert in all of the land! Available at Dockside Restaurant located within The Coeur d’Alene Resort, these delectable treats come in a wide variety of flavors that are guaranteed to sweeten up anybody’s day!
After being at the Resort for a bit of time now, I am realizing that a Gooey is truly the answer to all of life’s problems. Mad? Eat a Gooey. Sad? Eat a Gooey. Happy? Eat a Gooey. Need some protein before your work-out? Eat a Gooey! Especially the kind with the enormous chunks of peanut butter in it (my personal favorite by the way…).
And not only that, but one of the many totally-fab things about working here at the Resort is that us employees get treated to these delightful Gooey treats every once in a while too! Every year, when our birthday rolls around, Resort Management gives us to the best gift an employee can ever be given: a voucher to receive a full-sized Gooey. Take my word on it when I say that there is NO better birthday gift that an obnoxiously large goulash of ice-cream and calorie-filled goodies!
Actually, in all reality, it is truly quite pathetic the lengths I would personally go to in order to get my hands on that heavenly bowl of ice-cream. But let’s save that confession and judgment for a different day and a different blog post. More importantly, let’s chat more about the tasty flavors our mouthwatering Gooey’s are offered in:
