A Cochrane-based cookie company is quietly making waves in the food world as it has taken home two prestigious awards this past spring. Real Treat Organic cookies took home the gold in the Cookies & Sweet Snacks category of the Specialty Food Association’s 2021 sofi™ Awards for its Lemon Sablés with Herbes de Provence and the NEXTY for Best New Sweet Snack at Virtual Expo West for its Pantry line. Founder and CEO Jaqueline Day says her products have been garnering attention from foodies all over the world as the cookies deftly marry nostalgia and epicurean adventure with clean ingredients and unique flavour combinations. We loved the lemon sablés and the salted caramel shorties with fennel. Both offer a surprising combination of sweet and savoury with a dreamy, sandy mouth feel. Find these real treats at grocers all over the city including Blush Lane, Spud.ca, Community Natural Foods, Safeway/Sobeys and others.
