Editors’ Pick Veggie Award: Vegan Treats, Sweet Philanthropy
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bomb Cake. We could just stop there, right? That would be enough to hail the goodie glory of Bethlehem, PA’s Vegan Treats—but it wouldn’t come close to doing justice to their philanthropic and activist efforts. Deemed one of the Top Ten Bakeries in the World by American Express’ Departures magazine, winner of PETA’s Proggy Award for Best Bakery, and Best Overall in PBS’s Feast of Sweets, founder Danielle Konya’s sweet treat skills are legendary. The goodness isn’t just found in the Chocolate-Encased Strawberry Marshmallow Cake and Key Lime Pie, though. Vegan Treats actively supports animal advocacy groups such as The American Anti-Vivisection Society, Farm Sanctuary, and the Humane Society of the United States. Chocolate + charity = the sweetest multitasking ever!
