Hi All,
Where to find the best Holiday cookies and desserts for a party - taste wise. Red velvet, peppermint chocolate, ginger molasses, etc...

Does anyone carry Cranberry Island or Byrd's?

Thanks in advance!

    Depends how much you want to spend, and how big the party is.

    Robicelli's holiday flavors are well thought out knockouts without equal.

    Blackhound always has interesting holidays flavors.

    Tribeca Treats has some interesting seasonal items, like the whoopie pies.

    Sugar Sweet Sunshine is a good standby if you need something less refined, and half the price of Robicelli..but I would start with Robicelli.

        It looks like Tribeca Treats has the most of what I am looking for. Do they taste good as well?

          Wouldn't recommend them if they didn't.

          Are you mostly focused on cookies?
          Sweetery Truck and the Treats Truck are good for seasonal flavors.
          Our Daily Bread has a Molasses cookie at the Union Sqr. farmers market. (check the schedule)
          Dougboy Bake Shop has a peppermint brownie that's been singled out on another site.

            for this occassion it is more cookie and cake specific but will look into all the rec's. Just wanted something other than cupcakes since that's what we always do so good to know Robicell's for another time.
            Think Tribeca Treats fits the bill - from their website!
            Thanks again
