Have you removed all children within earshot? Ok. Here’s just the tip for a dessert when you’re visiting Manchester. Edging the city’s Northern Quarter, Mr Dick serves up explicitly shaped sweet treats that always come with a happy ending.

While certainly an Instagrammable gimmick, these waffley desserts are genuinely delicious and well worth a shot. 

Creating your perfect vulvic or phallic treat (£8.50) comes in three stages. Firstly, you choose a shape. Next up is the filling.  

Go for options such as pink, gold, white or dark cream. Monthly specials, such as Nutella, are rotated to keep things fresh.  

Then comes the topping. Deliberate over crushed cookies, marshmallow, chocolate crunch or hazelnuts. However, the Lotus Biscoff really is the money shot.  

Accompaniments on the menu include espresso (£2.00), hot chocolate (£4.50) and palate-cleansing herbal tea (£2.30). If you have room, go for an Oreo, Kinder Bueno or Reese’s Cup milkshake (£4.60). With treats this good, you may need a safe word.  

The only danger of making a Mr Dick appointment is that you’ll want to eat a big bag of them. Mr Dick is the Manchester dessert that will keep you coming again and again – be sure to head down.
