Holiday Treats



Crumbs Bakery

Old Friend, New Look

If you thought the sweet indulgence of Girl Scout cookies couldn’t get any better, have we got some news for you. Everyone’s favorite cookies are now…cupcakes? Crumbs Bakery and the Girl Scouts recently introduced a new line of cupcakes that pay homage to Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Now nobody is suggesting you ditch the age-old tradition of popping your Thin Mints in the freezer; we just thought you’d want to know that perfection can indeed evolve. Crumbs Bakery, 48 West Putnam Avenue, 203-618-9500, crumbs.com.

Sweet Greetings

You may want to rethink sending your standard holiday cards when you check out these customizable sweet treats. This season Sweet Rexie’s, an over-the-top shop that makes Willy Wonka look like a slouch, is offering frosted Oreos adorned with festive illustrations. Or to really say “Happy Holidays” in style, have them tailored with your own artwork (photo, monogram, message, etc). Sweet Rexie’s ships nationwide and can attach personalized cards with your orders. Standard boxes start at $15, Sweet Rexie’s, 1552 Post Road, 203-254-3254, sweetrexies.com.

Making Scents

What happens when an acclaimed illustrator and famed fragrance designer decide to put their talents together? Absolutely adorable seasonal candles happen. Nick Hanzlik is best known for his stationery and gift company, R. Nichols, as well as his illustrations and hand-cut paper collages. Gary McNatton has developed fragrances for Fred Segal, Gap, Banana Republic, Restoration Hardware and West Elm, among others. Together they have created a collection of whimsical candles that incorporate clean, pure scents and joyful illustrations. For the holiday season, the pair has introduced a votive trio that includes “Sparkle” (the quintessential scent of a Christmas tree lot), “Glisten” (a winter blend of cinnamon, clove and blood orange) and “Glow” (the warm scent of a crackling fire). The fun festive candles are the perfect hostess gift; $68, available at Hoaglands of Greenwich, 175 Greenwich Avenue, 203-869-2127, hoaglands.com
