Vegan Treats founder, Danielle Konya, blew the dessert fallacy out of the water long ago with the creation of her first Peanut Butter Bomb cake, entirely made from plant-based baking. She sold the cake to a guy in Philadelphia who was selling vegan cheesesteak sandwiches and the vision took off from there. Vegan Treats continues its track record of proving that great baked goods don't need animal products.
Named one of the top 10 bakeries in the world — not just the top vegan bakeries — in 2012 by American Express’s Departures Magazine, Vegan Treats desserts have the same rich mouth feel their non-vegan counterparts have, even with using ingredients like potato starch, tapioca starch and silken tofu.
Don't be surprised if you come across the brand at a coffee shop, restaurant or boutique grocery store in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia or the Washington, D.C. area. Deliveries are made weekly, and may just make the shelf or menu at one of your favorite spots! See if yours is on the list. Vegan Treats also pitches its tent at vegetarian food festivals in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, where fans line up for several hours. The array of treats in the tent can be mind-boggling, from mini-cakes coated in chocolate ganache and topped with colorful handmade fondant flowers to Bavarian cream doughnuts to Key lime pie.
Vegan Treats also offers catering with speciality orders for weddings and special events.
