Eat Boutique (August 2013)
"[Sarah] takes the already wonderful nut, sourced from family growers in Georgia, and elevates it through spicing and roasting. Treat Bakeshop utilizes heat and a little imagination to coax out deep and satisfying flavors from the humble pecan, rendering it fatty and salty and rich, which pairs perfectly with the added toasty sweetness."

Alcoholmanac Magazine (Aug/Sept 2012)
"At first bite, these pecans seem innocent. The bite-sized morsels are packed with a creamy, buttery, spicy sweetness that’s just right for grabbing one at a time. One can’t hurt, I think, so why not have another? One by one, they disappear into oblivion (OK, fine. I ate the entire jar over the course of nine trips through the kitchen in two hours). Whether savored one by one or gobbled en masse, Treat’s Spiced Pecans are an all-occasion delicacy that’s sure to delight."
