The staff at Treat Me Sweet must swear by the golden rule. They ask for sweet treatment with their business’s moniker, so, in return, they treat their customers to cakes, cupcakes, and truffles prepared either traditionally or free of gluten and dairy products. In more than 32 years of business, the staff has built a repertoire of cake flavors both classic and innovative, including red velvet, amaretto, and italian cream. They mix together fresh ingredients and bake cakes as close to a scheduled event as possible so they never have to store them in cryogenic freezers next to Walt Disney’s “welcome back to life” cake. For fancier confections, they drape fresh or porcelain-sugar flowers over icing or create art out of chocolate-dipped strawberries, nuts, and crystalized grapes.
Cupcake connoisseur Allison Beck began her baking career as a labor of love, whipping up batches of luscious single-serve cakes for friends and family. When fans of her pastry pastime began to swell beyond the ranks of friends and acquaintances, Allison knew it was time to go pro. She realized a long-held dream by opening Alli B’s Sweets & Treats, where today the aromas of toasty sugar and flour waft through the air as she bakes cupcakes and cookies fresh daily. Cupcake flavors range from white wedding to hot-fudge sundae, topped with sumptuous domes of frosting or fashioned into high-heeled shoes with the addition of a cookie heel. She also bakes custom cakes for birthdays, tax-filing days, and other celebrations.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Real butter. Fresh milk. Madagascar vanilla. These are a few of the ingredients that The Sweet Spot Bakery's dessert designers work with each morning as they craft traditional as well as gluten-free cupcakes, cookies, kolache, and other treats from scratch. They never use preservatives or frozen materials, so they can truly say that only freshly baked and iced goods grace the glass display case. Custom-made cakes—from the traditional to confections shaped like beer coolers, owls, and Noah's ark—serve as mouthwatering centerpieces at birthdays, weddings, and other events.
The philosophy at The Dough Bar Co. is simple: life should be sweet for everyone, all the time. To do its part in fulfilling that credo, the shop whips up classic, homemade sweets.

Shipped orders always arrive in decorative packaging to match the festive edibles inside, complete with platinum tins and colorful ribbons.
For more than 15 years, Yogolait has stocked its self-serve fro-yo machines with a rotating array of nine flavors. Each week, favorite flavors stand at the ready alongside less traditional choices, such as aloe vera and green tea. Creative toppings include locally sourced honey and fruits, smooth chocolates, and mochi. The dining area's decor befits the inventive ingredients, populated by inviting leather couches, clusters of hanging lamps, and a blanket ban on disappointing balsa-wood spoons.
