World Peace, also known as Ron Artest, noshed on Fried Macaroni and Cheese-Pops, chicken tenders and salmon while sipping on two of Sugar Factory’s signature Passion Punch goblets. Artest, joined by a group of friends, was overheard saying how much he enjoys the fried macaroni and cheese dish. Following his main course, the larger-than-life athlete indulged in a colossal Cookie Jar ice cream sundae for dessert.

After Artest finished inside the restaurant, he headed straight towards the Sugar Factory flagship retail store. Always a playful character when he’s inside the sweet shop, Artest sampled some of his favorite sweets, including gummy bears and Jelly Bellys. The NBA All-Star couldn’t leave before picking up a few Couture Pops in his favorite flavor, green apple.
