Dinner without dessert is like a foreign movie without subtitles—you can digest both, but you'll probably miss out on the good parts. Fast-forward to tasty endings with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one-dozen brownies shipped in a gift box from Greyston Bakery online (a $34 value).
Owned by the nonprofit Greyston Foundation, Greyston Bakery combines confections with convictions, supplying locals with careers and job-training skills and the world with preservative-free brownies. Guests can quiet the incessant chomping of sweet teeth with one of four gourmet varieties such as the gooey chocolate fudge, made with genuine Belgian chocolate, and the coffee-infused espresso bean. Walnut-fudge brownies boast a layer of crunchy nuts, and brown sugar and Belgian chocolate chips mingle into a square meal in the brown-sugar blondie. The indecisive can quell the stress of singular selection with a variety pack and send them along to secret loves or deserving alter egos in a stylish, crumb-catching gift box, which typically arrives within five days.
In addition to supplying Ben & Jerry’s with ice-cream-accentuating mix-ins for more than 20 years, Greyston Bakery grants fair wages and benefits to more than 65 Yonkers-area residents who have struggled with job-history obstacles. The bakery, mentioned in O Magazine and featured on 60 Minutes, crafts its treats from all-natural ingredients, and their short shelf-life creates a perfectly plausible excuse for eating the entire box without taking a breath or blinking.
