Finally! Boston's owned Rosie's Bakery now carries vegan cookies. And better yet they are gluten free and made with fair trade chocolate! This is big news folks. This is a place that has pride itself with its loaded butter, sugar, and cream baked goods. To have a vegan cookie is a totally new avenue for them. In the past they have told customers they even have a "butter policy."
"When it comes to sweet indulgences, Rosenberg knows that great desserts call for authentic ingredients: real butter, real cream, real chocolate,
They made the announcement to carry the cookies last month on their Twitter and Facebook page. They have a few varieties - chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, oatmeal with dried wild blueberries, carob almond butter, etc. I discovered it today while walking by the Bakery in South Station. The are carrying these cookies in all their locations around Boston so please go and buy the vegan cookies! They are $2.00 each. I've been waiting for this day for years.
The company that makes these cookies for Rosie's is Vision's Sown - An Ancient Baking Company. They are using the name Mother's Nut for their Rosie's cookies. Coincidentally I think I know the owner Tonya. She served on the Harvest Coop Board of Directors with me for a while last year. I'm excited to see her all natural vegan cookies taking off!
