If you’re looking for a unique sweet treat to gift business associates, friends and family — or need something special for entertaining, look no further than Gertie and BB's Gourmet Goodies. This Sherman Oaks based company, helmed by Jeannie Alan and Sheri Adams, is currently being featured at Chicago's Field Museum as part of the “Chocolate Around the World” exhibit.
Let me preface by saying that I’m not a big chocolate or candy lover, but these treats are so incredibly scrumptious and positively addicting that they are impossible to resist.
Gertie and BB's sweets are a crispy crunchy combination of homemade toffee and gourmet chocolate layered with other rich tastes that can be called a cookie, a candy or a mix of the two. Choose from flavors such as Cherries Jubilee, Cinnamon Hot Cocoa, Coconut Almond, S’Mores, Crazy Coconut, Mint Madness and Pistachio Crunch (the only one without chocolate).
The goodies are freshly made and packed in adorable bags and boxes of brown and green — from bow-tied cellophane bags to gift boxes and take-out boxes to a clear gift pail with individually wrapped packages. Choose one flavor or mix and match. There’s even a Party Favor package with 24 individually wrapped take out boxes. Got a custom order? They can do that too. Prices run $7.50 - $120, so there is something for every occasion—and they donate a percentage of every sale to WeSpark Cancer Support Group in Sherman Oaks.
Gertie and BB’s Gourmet Goodies can be shipped nationwide. Best of all, these treats have a shelf life of approximately 6 months — and they freeze beautifully for up to 12 months.
