Product Review: Hippie Crack from Baked and Wired
If loving their cookies and cupcakes wasn’t enough, here is one more thing to get you to fall in love with Baked and Wired.
Here’s a little story that I have to tell about a California girl living in a whole new world. Cough. Cough. See this is what happens when you profess on Facebook that you’ve lost your creative mojo, you really do start to get a little silly – and no it has NOTHING to do with “crack.”
As everyone is well aware (I hope) we have left the warmth and comfort of LA to the District of Columbia and have been exploring ever since, well when it’s not below 40 degrees.
Did you know that Californian’s start to freeze over at about 47.9 degrees?
Anyway during one of our adventures I stumbled on a lovely cupcake shop Baked & Wired in Georgetown. I was a little disappointed to Georgetown Cupcakes, but when I sunk my teeth into one of these, well let’s just say, “When you had Baked and Wired there is no turning back.”
Anyway this little gem is known for more than their fabulous cupcakes, they also have some amazing cookies and great café mochas. They of course have a full café of flavored coffees and teas but I’m a café mocha kind of girl.
Now let me get back to the Crack, the Hippie Crack. If you would rather not dive into one of their sweet delights you can also opt for their homegrown granola called… wait for it…
Hippie Crack is a homegrown granola that you can sprinkle on top of your favorite yogurt, with milk or all by itself. It’s a combination of oats, slivered almonds and coconut all toasted up and mixed with dried tart cherries, apricots, currants, cranberries and honey. There is no fruit option as well.
I have never been much of a granola eating but I find myself snacking on this while I’m working and or need something to crunch while cooking dinner.
Best of all if you don’t live in the DC metro you can order you own Hippie Crack online at BakedandWired.com.
