Vanilla Bean Unique Cookies – Exhibiting at the Atlanta International Gift Show – July 10 – 14, 2014

We are excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at this year’s Atlanta International Gift Show. One of our corporate goals is to be recognized as trendsetters for creating innovative cookies.

We first launched our unique cookies at the 2013 Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City. The response was overwhelming positive. We returned from the show energized and inspired to develop packaging that would further brand our cookies. We are now heading to Atlanta to introduce our grab n go packaged cookies and imprinted gift boxes. We are also introducing a our new Hat Box Cookie Collection. These beautiful hat boxes filled with our cookies are an exquisite gift.

Experience the January market as a preview of the July show Atlanta International Gift Show!  We will be there representing not only Vanilla Bean Unique Cookies but our hometown.

Testamonial from Daytime Emmy Customer

From the first bite of their “Orange Clementine” cookie in the Daytime
Emmy gift bag, I was hooked. Not only does that, and the other variety of
cookies they offer give proof that God exists & He loves us, they are also
the cookies I want to be buried with. Try them & see for yourself.
Mary Neeley, satisfied & loyal customer.
