Satisfy Anyone's Sweet Tooth with Adorable and YUMMY Treats from Lori's Place Bakery {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Result: 77 Powered by RANDOM.ORG
Congratulations to the winner, Raevyn! I have sent you an e-mail and you have 48 hours to claim your prize! Thanks to all who entered!

Lori's Place Gourmet Delights is the perfect combination of customer service, super tasty treats, and perfect presentation. The treats at this bakery will not only satisfy your most discriminating sweet tooth, but they are sure to make you smile because they are just so darn cute! Not to mention, Lori was so sweet and pleasant to work with! You'll love Lori's Place Gourmet Delights!!

From Lori herself:
"Welcome to Lori's Place, where "Grandma's Goodness" comes through. Family recipes with a twist!
"One Bite" and you'll be "HOOKED"!
I use the "BEST" ingredients, "NO PRESERVATIVES"
& Caribbean Extracts for more intense, and delightful flavors."

Lori specializes in cookies, but also has other sweet treats to choose from. She makes cookies in all different shapes (literally 100s!), for any occasion. I was sent some of Lori's signature items to review: a large Bear Hug (which two of you have the opportunity to WIN) and a small chocolate Bear Hug. I must say that they were both DELICIOUS! The texture of the shortbread cookie inside the Bear Hug was wonderful, and it almost melted in my mouth. It wasn't so soft that it crumbled to pieces, but wasn't crunchy and hard. It was perfect! Also, the sweet icing was an excellent complement to the not-too-sweet cookie. I love that both the cookie and icing were not super sweet, so that I could taste the great flavor. With many treats I've tried, the only flavor you can taste is sugar! I assure you that this is not the case with Lori's cookies. The smaller chocolate bear hug was just as cute and tasty. And, before I go any further, let me tell you that I am not a huge fan of chocolate cake, cookies, or ice cream. Even so, I still loved the little chocolate hug. The cookie texture was the same as the Large Bear Hug, and the chocolate flavor was just right. I can't really describe the way it tasted, except that it wasn't like any other chocolate cookie I've ever had. It seems like most of them taste the same, and are overwhelmingly "strong" with the chocolate. The taste was very mild, yet still "chocolatey" enough for those of you who love chocolate. I hope that makes sense...this is all coming from someone who is terrible at describing food tastes. My husband could probably do much better, but I didnt' let him try any of the chocolate cookie :)

Any of Lori's cookies or treats would be perfect for showers, gifts, parties, special occasions, etc. The Bear Hugs, in particular, can be personalized for your recipient or occasion and would be perfect for any age. They are HUGE, so they would make a substantial statement all on their own. I just love the Bride and Groom bears! Some of my other favorite cookie designs are the precious baby feet, tiara (perfect for a Princess party or wedding!), teacher cookies (had to include those...), and chocolate ladybugs. I guarantee that you'll be pleased with any treats you decide to purchase from Lori's Place Gourmet Delights. And if you're giving them as a gift, they'll surely make your recipient smile! If you'd like to purchase some cookies for your next event (or for yourself), head on over to Lori's Place.
