  • Tropical Sno
    If it was conceivable to eat a frozen coconut, Tropical Sno might just serve that. But since it’s not, the company designed syrups that add natural-tasting flavor to cups of shaved ice. The selection of 40 flavors includes everything from vanilla and cinnamon to guava and green apple. Although it's possible to invent new flavor combinations, an existing set of popular concoctions mimics classic desserts and drinks. For instance, the mai tai merges pineapple, lemon, and orange. To make desserts more unique than a cake decorated with its own fingerprints, Tropical Sno offers add-ons such as cream topping and sour-pucker packs. Further, the company serves lower-calorie flavors made with alternative sweeteners.

  • Sweet Diva
    Jill Comes built Sweet Diva around a butter-cookie recipe that had been passed down through her family for generations, and she's quick to let the uninformed know that her rich butter cookies are a step above standard sugar cookies. Over the years, Jill fine-tuned the consistency of the royal-almond icing she uses until it allowed her to decorate her creations with the same freedom an artist has when painting on a canvas or turning the White House into the Formerly White House. Along with the custom cookie cutouts, Jill bakes cupcakes and cake-based lollipops called cake balls, personalizing each order to accommodate the needs of all customers and any type of occasion.
