What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
Over two years ago, I woke up and heard the word "cake pop" in my head. I had never seen or heard of one before then. So naturally, I Googled it. A friend's birthday was coming up, and I thought, "Why not try the cake pop out with her?" Since then, I've expanded from cake pops to cupcakes to cakes. But we'll always specialize in cake pops. It is a God-given passion, and I love it!
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Cake pops are mess-free and delicious. Just the perfect bite for any sweet tooth.
Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem?not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?
My personal all time favorite cake pop flavor is strawberry, with anything chocolatey a close runner up.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our menu is full of flavor that pops. It's fun and can be creative, once a flavor is chosen along with the chocolate coating and sprinkles. Should a customer desire a character or shaped pop, the cake pop becomes as a piece of art. Lots to choose from.
Each Bloop Frozen Yogurt location keeps a lineup of frozen yogurt machines churning out 10–16 rotating flavors in nonfat, low-fat, and no-sugar-added forms—not to mention nondairy sorbet options such as watermelon and pink lemonade. Cups pile high with Godiva dark chocolate, cake batter, and real strawberry yogurt and a wide array of toppings such as M&Ms, gummy worms, and seasonal fruits. The frozen treat innovators encourage enthusiasts to submit their own outrageous flavor ideas in hopes that one day, wishes for a yogurt inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey can finally be fulfilled. Every Bloop cup of yogurt purchased provides a cup of clean drinking water to areas in need through the A Cup 4 A Cup initiative. So far, the Bloop chain has donated more than 42,000 cups, and a goal for each new store is to provide a new drinking well to a needy community.
The 16-year-old Magnolia Foods purveys specialty gourmet groceries and freshly baked goods, curating a fine selection of European chocolates, imported cheeses, and fresh sandwiches. Baked goods such as cappuccino brownies and lemon squares seduce tummies without the use of lard or shortening, and trays of bite-size appetizers prevent a party's ravenous guests from attempting to nibble on silverware, plastic fruit, or plastic caviar. Local artwork hangs proudly from the walls as guests meander through the eclectic array of kitchenware, and the scents of bubbling gourmet soups and special-occasion cakes pleasantly waft through olfactory apparatuses.
If the round, pastel-colored tables at Lynchburg’s Sundae Grill could speak, they might regale listeners with stories of their earlier life, spent at a Disney World café frequented by the park’s most animated characters. Given the same chance, the pink and baby-blue booths would not speak but rather sing; though they now host a continual stream of diners come to sample the restaurant’s famous burgers and sundaes, they once belonged to pop sensation Celine Dion. With more than 101 choices of ice cream and desserts—including a staggering 56 sundae options—Sundae Grill lives up to and continues to build on the legacies of its own furnishings. Though the diner’s marinated, seasoned, and charbroiled burgers have won local awards throughout the years, owners BH and Mrs. K insist on rounding out their menu with recipes culled from across America—BH personally traveled the country looking for the most interesting hot-dog recipes from each region. This same dedication to variety informs Mrs. K’s lengthy list of so-called super sundaes. Local favorites include a caramel-pecan combination topped with whipped cream and a Death by Chocolate selection served with a napkin that doubles as a last will and testament.
