Wackym’s Kitchen‘s motto is “Life is sweet, eat great treats!” We’ve been snacking on their treats for quite some time now, and we’re wishing them a very Happy 5th Birthday this month!
A few years ago, owner Paul Wackym noticed that there weren’t many cookies made with real ingredients anymore- where was the butter and sugar? He was feeling nostalgic for homemade, crave-able, crunch-able cookies, like Grandma would make. And in 2008, with a particularly delightful snickerdoodle cookie, Wackym’s Kitchen was born! Wackym’s Kitchen uses real butter, cane sugar, and recently made the switch to aluminum-free baking powder and unbleached, unbromated flour. They don’t use any artificial preservatives or additives in their cookies, just wholesome, sweet goodness!
Although Paul started out in shared spaces around town, these days, Wackym’s Kitchen bakes cookies in their very own kitchen space near White Rock Lake. Paul and his staff churn out 25,000 cookies per day– what a sugar rush! Although he recently acquired an awesome dough depositor (check out our Instagram feed to see it in action!), every cookie is still touched, seasoned, and lovingly placed into boxes by hand.
Wackym’s Kitchen makes dozens of flavors, and Paul is constantly creating new delectable delights! One of our favorites, Maple Pecan, just came back into season for fall. The Maple Pecan cookies taste absolutely amazing with coffee. And for the winter holidays, you can look forward to Eggnog and Hot Apple Pie, which might pair well with mulled wine or apple cider! Happy Birthday, Wackym’s Kitchen! We look forward to many more years of crunchy sweets.
