If you know me, you likely know how big of a sweet tooth I have. In fact, I think all my teeth are sweet teeth! I am a sucker for baked goods. I love to make trips to the bakery in Orono on the weekend but I also like checking out new bakeries. I actually like baking too; I think it’s a bit easier than cooking meals and often has an easier clean up. But with Bakers Krate, you don’t have to worry about which baked goods to pick or having to deal with a messy kitchen just so you can get your hands on some tasty treats.
Bakers Krate is a Canadian subscription box company that sends you a box full of tasty baked good from bakeries all over Canada. The goodies are just like the basic items you would find at your local bake sale. In fact, all of the items I got came from bakeries in Ontario. The bakers that supply their items are experts, they bake for a living. They provide quality items that are natural, local and fresh. So what did I get?
Skor Cookie Bar
This was so good. I’ve had other Skor inspired baked goods but not a full on cookie bar. The cookie bar part is made with vanilla and toffee which is then smothered in melted chocolate and topped with little Skor pieces. I posted a picture of this on my social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram!
St. Patrick’s Day Cake Pop
This may have been the first cake pop I’ve ever had. I am so happy it was chocolate cake too! Sorry vanilla lovers, but chocolate cake is the way to my heart.They mixed in a creamy icing which made the cake moist and very creamy. To finish it off they dipped the cake pop in white chocolate and drizzled a bit of green on top for that St. Patrick’s Day fun decoration!
Peanut Butter Rice Krispy
I was super impressed with this one. It’s the first treat I ate. It puts the classic rice krispy to shame. The baker mixed peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallow to create a flavourful square. I think I could make this myself!
Coco Coconut Mini Pie in a Jar
Not only was this packaged super cute, I also love the idea of a mini pie in a jar. The best way to describe this was like a butter tart with shredded coconut in it. I haven’t had anything like this before – except the classic butter tart (which I love!) I’m still not even 100% sure what was all in this but damn it was good. The Itty Bitty Pie company took it a step further with the “cool” factor of a mini pie in a jar.
So florentine cookies are actually something I get regularly from my local bakery. They are a thin, crunchy treat made of tiny pieces of almonds stuck together using a brittle like mixture. They then cover the crispy treat with chocolate which adds a nice smooth taste to the entire cookie.
The featured bakeries from this month’s Bakers Krate include: Leah’s Bakery, Black Walnut Bakery Cafe, Itty Bitty Pie Company, Heather’s Bakery Cafe and The Wooden Spoon. I like this service because I am a sucker for desserts. It’s nice to have a treat after dinner and with Bakers Krate it’s so convenient. Bakers Krate would make a great gift as well. If you know someone who has a sweet tooth, surprise them!
