Vote for Inspired Cookie – Vegan Cookie of the Year

VegNews Magazine (which has a pretty awesome website, btw) is hosting the 2010 Veggie Awards. One of our SUPER SUPPLIERS, The Inspired Cookie, is competing in the cookie category!

Sarah Gill is the mastermind behind these delicious cookies! Her Peppermint Chocolate Chunk is mint chocolaty goodness and doesn’t even taste like it’s gluten-free and vegan. It’s my go-to snack when I’m craving something sweet.

Her other cookie flavors — Lemon Lavender and Espresso Lemon Chocolate Chunk — are pretty darn delicious too! If you wouldn’t mind clickin’ and votin’ for her…we’d be much obliged…(The survey is long but you can skip over all the rest except the second to last page the ONE question “Do you subscribe to VegNews Magazine?” and then fill in your name and email at the end.)

Ooh, and one more thing, did you know she developed a gluten-free, vegan brownie?? Wowsers, these things are the moistest, chocolaty, rich brownies I’ve tried…and they taste even better when they are frozen and then eaten. Let me leave you with this picture:

Don’t they look moist and yummy? Go vote for her…and then get yourself to Philz to pick up her cookies/brownie!

Super Supplier: Mission Minis

Have you spied these bite-size cupcake morsels in their little cupcake stand when paying for your coffee in the Philz in San Francisco?

They are from Brandon @ Mission Minis and they are seriously a great treat!

Made locally in the Mission District and super super good, they come in all different flavors — Aztec Chocolate, Ruby Red Velvet, Cinnamon Horchata, Swiss Almond Coconut, Classic Vanilla and Pumpkin Spice — and only $1!

I’ve already sampled devoured two different flavors, Cinnamon Horchata and Ruby Red Velvet, and I can’t wait to try the rest! The best part is they are the perfect size to get a few different flavors to try out and you don’t feel over-stuffed and sick from all the sugar like you do on mega-sized cupcakes!

They are currently available in our San Francisco locations…maybe one day, he’ll deliver down the Peninsula…a girl can dream, can’t she?



Sarah Gill from THE INSPIRED COOKIE!! What a treat! Honestly, she has so much awesome and generous energy blasting out of her at all times that she convinced me, a die hard meat and potatoes type of dude, to try her Vegan, gluten free cookies. And believe me I was reluctant at first but she made a convert out of me. It’s like the cookies are a baked extension of her personality, brimming with flavor and choice ingredients, these little cookies are phenomenal. The Chai cookie is my favorite, spicy chocolate is a close second. Seriously, creative flavors, premium input – amazing output, Sarah has the vegan cookie game in a choke hold. Slide on by and pick one up. If she sees you, you’re getting a hug. Great lady, great cookies.
