Some of our favorites include:
- Bon-Bon Brazil: Provide a multicultural experience for your guests with homemade Brigadeiros – a unique Brazilian sweet that oftentimes draws comparisons to fudgy chocolate truffles.
- Country Hearth Baking: In need of something gluten-free? Country Hearth Baking is your place to go! Here you can find a wide variety of gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free cookies, soy-free brownies, fresh scones, easy mixes to make at home, and even some bread and pies!
- Electric Cookie Jar: If cookies are your thing, Electric Cookie Jar is a great local brand that will be sure to find the perfect flavor for you! The flavors expand far beyond the “norm”, with favorites such as bacon gingersnap, honey ginger, potato chip chocolate, and white chocolate cranberry. Also on their menu are vegan and sugar-free options. Best of all, if you don’t see a flavor you’d like, you can request a custom flavor made just for you!
