Hanging with my parents is always a good time for a vegan, especially since they live in the Lehigh Valley, PA, home to Vegan Treats. This bakery has some of the most beautiful and rich desserts I have ever seen or tasted. I've heard the same from others, both vegans and omnis.
On my most recent trip, I played adviser to a woman who had tasted them at her church and had to have more.
Vegan Treats ships to restaurants in NYC, Philly, and D.C., but there is nothing quite like making the pilgrimage and buying six tiny cakes (two to eat at the shop with coffee and four to take home).
The two varieties that I consider staples are the peanut butter bomb and the brownie-topped cheesecake. Of course, if you're missing soft-serve coated in sprinkles, donuts, sticky buns, or seasonal treats, they can help you out too.
Vegan Treats is one more reminder that veganism is not synonymous with sacrifice.
