Summertime Sweet Treats

It’s All About Taste!

There is that craving again.  The VIRGINIA SHOPPER LOVES delicious confections!  And summertime flavors are the most tantalizing of all – at least, while it’s summer that is.  Then comes Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day…….   dreams are made of delectable goodies for all the seasons.  But sometimes I forget about sweets in the summertime.

Take KEY LIME.  Remember key lime pie?  Ooooooh!  What could be better?

Key Lime Pound Cake

At one time you could only get that authentic flavor in you guessed it – Key West, Florida.  But The SHOPPER has found the real thing again in a pound cake – in VIRGINIA!  At Virginia Born and Bred!  Imagine that!


The SHOPPER found a sinfully dark, moist, 44 ounce Pound Cake that’s pure decadence!  Double-infused with chocolate and covered with a chocolate glaze to seal in the richness, this is a melt-in-your mouth delicacy not to be missed.


Think TANGY!  Fresh cranberries baked under a divine lemon batter and you have a rare and unusual summertime dessert fit for the best barbecue feast or outdoor party.

And think TANGY AGAIN, as you watch the sun come up  and enjoy a luscious slice of cranberry cake with coffee or tea for BREAKFAST!


No, it’s not Christmas!  But if you want to give a truly unique gift mid-summer, think GOURMET SWEET TREATS!  Your favorite people are not expecting sweet treat goodies.  SO, SURPRISE!

Here’s a sample of a fabulous gift idea;

Two sumptuous cakes beautifully packaged together in one box!  Rowena’s Wonderful Almond Pound Cake and Luscious Lemon Pound Cake are deliciously sweet, buttery and moist.  They are perfect by themselves for snacking, or lightly toasted for breakfast, and even more heavenly when topped with creamy Lemon Curd sauce (included).  All come in a gorgeous decorated gift box.  Gift giving is easier than ever!

It’s definitely summertime now, and whether the livin’ is easy or not, The VIRGINIA SHOPPER loves the decadence of lounging with not just any sweets, but a top-of-the-line, best-of-the-best sweet delights – maybe even topped off with ICE CREAM!   All of the above mouth watering temptations are available at Virginia Born and Bred – online or off!  Key Lime is my favorite flavor for starters.  What’s yours?
