NEW! Introducing our Double Marshmallow Crispy Bar

Introducing our new NSF Certified Gluten-Free Double Marshmallow Crispy Bar! This nostalgic dessert will bring you back to your childhood. It’s everything you love about a crispy rice bar, but we’ve kicked it up a notch with the addition of dark brown sugar and loads of fluffy marshmallows. We call it Double Marshmallow bar because it’s made with both gooey marshmallow fluff and lots of mini marshmallows.

These bars come individually-wrapped and are now available in our Bakery Cafe. Please visit our website for more information about our cafe.
