During the Victorian era, cookies were known as sweet biscuits and were eaten only by paupers, who were forced to substitute rich, hearty tallow with inexpensive sugar. Relish this sweet substitution with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a dozen vegan cookie sandwiches at Wholesome Bakery (a $36 value).
Mandy Harper, the owner and founder of Wholesome Bakery, rocketed her personal habit of vegan baking to the next level by creating a full menu of dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free, and soy-free treats to dispense to the public. Wholesome's sandwiches hold luscious vanilla filling between two hearty cookies, baked in eight flavors including snickerdoodle and zesty lemon. Cocoa morsels melt on taste buds after crumbling from chocolate-chip, mint-chocolate-chip, and oatmeal chocolate-chip biscuits or after being shot into mouths from T-shirt guns. The bakery also sates consciences by wrapping goodies in biodegradable packaging, delivering via bike and a forthcoming bio-diesel vehicle, and purchasing locally sourced wares with real money rather than Monopoly money.
