Sugarfina started out in 2012 as an online only retailer of their high-end candies. They opened their first retail store in 2013 in Beverly Hills, and have since grown to a dozen locations, six of which are in California. The idea for the Sugarfina concept came on the founder's third date during a screening of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. They asked. “Why should children have all the fun?” They then went on a quest to find the ultimate candy for grownups!
Sugarfina's premium candies are made with only the finest ingredients… Read More

Have you ever been stuck between pie flavors? Your family wants peach, but you prefer cherry and you cannot seem to justify buying two whole pies. Well, we're here to tell you that half pies are the answer to your problem! Our half pies are just the right size to satisfy everyone's preference for pie without the guilty feeling of overbuying and having a ton of leftovers. We think you are going to simply fall in love with our all natural half fruit pies.
Our fruit pies are made with natural ingredients and premium fruit. The flaky crust encases large slices and whole pieces of fruit. You will find that our pies are bursting with flavor since there is more fruit than slurry, which is the thickener that suspends the fruit in the pie. We believe that more fruit makes for a better tasting pie, but you can be the final judge on that.
Our half pies are available in a variety of scrumptious flavors: Bye Bye Blueberry, Just Peachy, Cheery Cherry, Sweet Cinnamon Apple, and Double… Read More

Most people associate peaches as a fruit to be enjoyed out of hand, in a pie, or perhaps to flavor a nice summer tea...that is until recently. There’s a growing trend to enjoy stone fruit (peaches, plums, nectarines) in ways not considered “traditional”. The growing foodie lifestyle and social craze to share a photo on social media of everything you eat is leading to an evolution of how we eat with our eyes and try new things.
Case-in-point: have you ever heard of peaches being used as an ingredient in bruschetta? How about wrapping some prosciutto around some sliced stone fruit and putting it on the grill? These and other bright ideas are making people think differently about what’s on the table, and let’s face it, it’s pretty exciting to elevate a simple ingredient to delicious rock star status while entertaining.
We’d like to suggest upping your game by trying a new approach: Sweet & Savory Grilled Stonefruit Kabobs! WOW your guests or family with this… Read More

Crunchy, sweet, delectable, and perfect little bites of heaven are just a few ways to describe our love for Jackie's Cookie Connection "Cookie Babies". Pop open a can of these dollar coin-size cookies, and you'll quickly find a new addiction. We love them as a quick treat or snack, and they are the perfect size to top a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent little dessert.
In 1979, Jackie, began with a humble goal. She wanted to make a great chocolate chip cookie that would satisfy her own sweet tooth. As it turned out, her passion yielded not merely a fantastic cookie but considerable opportunity. Before long, fans were flocking to 8 buzzing stores in New York City and Washington D.C. People would call out to her on the street, “hey, it’s the cookie lady”! Then came the accolades from the likes of Family Circle Magazine and even The Girl Scouts of America.
Fast forward to 2014. Jackie’s Cookie Babies sprang to life right here in their very own bakery in West Los Angeles… Read More

Looking for an escape from the seemingly endless winter? A trip to the dark side may be the ticket! Dark chocolate has long been celebrated for its rich and memorable flavor, but it’s also becoming health enthusiasts’ favorite sweet treat.
Do you know just how beneficial dark chocolate is to your health? Depending on the cocoa content, a bar of dark chocolate can contain a substantial amount of fiber, Iron, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. Bristol Farms’ decadent 72% Dark Chocolate Bar makes all those marks and then some!
Dark chocolate is also an excellent source of antioxidants. Pairing it with the power of blueberries, acai, and other berries, as we’ve done in our Dark Chocolate Mixed Berry bar, it’s hard to find a reason NOT to indulge. Whether trying to lower your blood pressure or the risk of cardiovascular disease, or possibly even avoiding sun burn while you’re out on the slopes, the effects of dark chocolate are… Read More
