Favorite Snacks/Treats

shan | Jul 7, 2007 08:48 PM

What are everyone's favorite snacks or treats? I'm always looking places where I can get a quick treat that's tasty. I really hate the bakery selection at Starbucks, but often wind up there because no one can think of another place to go for a quick drink/snack.
I went into Wild Wood on Bee Caves the other day for the first time and was somewhat impressed by the selection. I didn't realize there was a cafe that catered to people looking for wheat/gluten/etc free foods. I really liked their Ding Dongs. They are small chocolate cakes with rich chocolate icing and some sort of white filling (not much though). It was so good, I went by there the next day to pick one up again when I drove by. I was impressed with how moist and favorful it was. It's located in the same shopping complex with Breed & Co. out in the West Lake area.
I'm also a sucker for Phoenicia's Macaroons with Dates and Pecans. I've been getting those for a while now and they are simply wonderful. Very tasty and everything I want in a macaroon. My husband loves their chocolate chip cookies and we had to make a special trip there for just for them today.
