Have you ever been to a restaurant or shop and then asked yourself “Why haven’t I been here before now?” I must have driven past it a dozen or more times but I never went inside. Now I’ve tasted the goodness and regret not doing so earlier.
is a specialty cookie shop on 300 West with dozens of cookie flavors all named after pin-up girls. Each cookie has a unique personality of its own. The owner, Tami Cromar, is just as delightful as her little shop. Full of creativity and spunk, her charisma spills out into each cookie she creates.
This super fun cookie shop has recently been in the spotlight as it is goes through a law suit with Pillsbury. I don’t know the details of the lawsuit but I know it has to do with the brand name, Ruby Snap being too much like the Little Dough Boy. In my opinion, I can’t understand why a huge company like Pillsbury would be such a bully to desire a law suit over something that doesn’t effect them or their brand. The two names are different enough and Ruby Snap is a small cookie shop in Salt Lake City, not a National brand. The whole news story just made me want to go eat a bunch of cookies.
So I finally visited Ruby Snap
and got to try several of their cookies. It is fun to find a cookie that matches your preferences and personality. Here were my favorites:
Margo– chocolate cinnamon dough with a molten milk chocolate mint center.
Audrey– Almond Dough packed full of almonds, cranberries, and white chocolate
Betty– Oatmeal cookie coupled with Mediterranean apricots and Montmorency cherries
I am also really looking forward to their Frida cookie, which was a special for Frida Bistro, an upscale Mexican Restaurant in town.
Frida– Dark chocolate cookie with grilled chile d’arbol
And not only does Ruby Snap
sell delicious cookies, they also have vintage gums and gum balls, cutsie aprons and dish towels, and a few gift items.
Cookies make the perfect gifts, as they come in fun little boxed some with polka dots and ribbons with a fun logo sticker on top.
After grabbing a cookie you must stop by this new antique shop next door, Chic and Unique, they have lots of great finds and good prices.
Have you been to Ruby Snap? If so, what’s your favorite cookie and does it fit your personality?
