From what we can tell, pastry chef Country Velador gets inspired by everything and anything around her. That, of course, includes our desert landscape, an influence you can taste in creations such as Super Chunk Sweets and Treats' Mesquite Chocolate Chip cookie. With the addition of just a hint of smoky Mesquite flavor, Velador, who owns and runs the shop with her husband, Sergio, takes a classic cookie and turns it into something uniquely inspired by the Southwest. In fact, local flavors are peppered throughout the shop's offerings, including the fig and blue cheese caramels, pepita and cayenne brittle, and honeycomb made with local honey. The couple searched far and wide for the perfectly flavored honey, which they also use to make honeycomb ice cream. We think they're sweet.
