Hungry Bear Cookies pays homage to company founder Deryl Bear, as well as his bear-sized appetite for fresh-from-the-oven gourmet treats. The preservative free cookies are available in flavors ranging from chocolate chip to sugar dreams, as well as in cake-sized formations perfect for birthdays or rescuing someone from a giant glass of milk. Beyond saving countless tummies from a day without dessert, Hungry Bear has also proudly donated portions of its profits to charitable organizations such as the Children's Hospital of Central California.
Powell's sports a vast collection of confections that covers the entirety of the nostalgic scale. Dig for long-lost saccharine treasure at the bulk candy wall ($9.99 per lb.) or cocoa-coated sarcophagi such as succulent turtles and chocolate-covered pretzels ($4.50 per 1/4 lb.). Powell's also serves up freshly scooped servings of gelatos classicos (creamy, rich, Italian-style ice cream), coolly served in anything from a child's cup ($2.95) to an adult regular ($4.95) to straight into cupped hands (price negotiable). To-go pints are also available for picnics, birthdays, or igloo-apartment ribbon-cutting ceremonies ($7.95/pint).
Robeks uses the freshest ingredients to craft made-to-order drinks and eats that will make you feel guilt-free about grabbing a quick bite. Join the berry party with berry smoothies ($3.49 junior, $4.49 regular, $5.49 large) such as the Banzai Blueberry, Strawnana Berry, and Cranberry Quest, all of which pulverize fruit together with non-fat yogurt and sodium-free ice. For more pulchritudinous pulverized pulp, energize your day with power smoothies ($5.85 regular, $6.85 large), including the Cardio Cooler (with a base of passionfruit-mango juice), which blend juices, sherbets, soy and whey protein, and vitamin boosters into an elixir that that will revitalize even the most workout-withered body. If you're worried all this smoothage is making your teeth flabby, few comestibles hug your body quite like a Southwest chicken wrap combined with a tall glass of carrot-orange-ginger juice (the G-Snap).
Cupcakes Bakery's dedicated dessert connoisseurs rise early six days a week to bake a fresh batch of cupcakes and cinnamon rolls from scratch with all-natural ingredients. They drizzle gooey cinnamon rolls with icing and pipe swirls of frosting atop crowd-favorite red-velvet cupcakes, which are more popular than denim-suit Fridays at a bank. Newly added cheesecake cupcakes come in original, blueberry, chocolate, and strawberry flavors. The bakers stock displays with menu staples such as chocolate chip and orange creamsicle, and they don't skimp on their toppings, wedging an entire Oreo atop the Oreo cupcake, for example. They also whip up special flavors daily, such as chocolate-peanut-butter cupcakes on Wednesday and Saturday and pineapple upside-down cupcakes on Monday, Thursday, and Rube Goldberg Day. The confectionary roster also changes with the season to highlight its flavors, such as autumn pumpkin and boreal gingerbread.
