Cool Summer Treats for Kids

A mom of two, education specialist, foodie and small business owner from Harper Woods offers some delicious summer treats your kids will love.

Metro Detroit has the best hidden gems. This summer, I set out to uncover some of the most unique treats and want to share four of them that I think offer something for everyone in the family to enjoy!

Detroit Cookie Company

Stuffed cookies? Yes, Please! Use the cool walk-up window at Detroit Cookie Co. to order your goodies. Choose from the cereal bars featuring the nostalgic favorite Fruit Loops or the signature Cap’n Berry-O cookies. Locations in Ferndale and Ann Arbor.

Joe Randazzo’s Fruit Market

Going to the fruit market in Michigan during the summer is a beautiful experience. Joe Randazzo’s always features the most unique fruits like kumquats, guava and persimmons. Grab a pint of fresh blueberries to set up a refreshing frozen smoothie bar at home. Multiple locations.

Pink Elephant Cupcakes

July may be my favorite month because Pink Elephant in St. Clair Shores is offering its Blueberry Cheesecake Cupcake. The menu changes each month and keeps you coming back for more! It also offers take & bakes, the perfect activity to do at home with the kiddos!

For The Love of Sugar

It’s all in the title here, and founder Manal doesn’t disappoint! Located in the heart of Midtown, FTLOS serves up some of the best macarons I’ve had! There’s a variety of pastries to choose from, and cake by the slice. Mom tip: Try a slice of the rainbow fruity cereal cake. It’s magical!
