Wackym's Kitchen has been sharing sweetness and cookie love since October 2008. We first started selling our cookies at local farmers markets in the Dallas-Ft Worth area where our customers came to buy our original five flavors. To our great surprise and delight, in all sorts of weather (the hottest days of summer to the coldest, wettest days of winter), week after week, the customers came, tasted, and took away treats.
Over the years, we began selling through retailers to help spread the sweetness, and we now share cookie love throughout Texas and beyond. If we are not in a store near you, then we are happy to ship an order directly to you. Wackym's Kitchen also continues to be involved weekly with the local food movement by participating in farmers markets and foodie events throughout the year.
We operate out of our own dedicated kitchen located in Dallas, Texas and produce crispy cookies that are all made from real butter, cane sugar and unbleached/unbromated flour. At Wackym's Kitchen we use only fresh ingredients with no artificial flavorings or preservatives.
As Chief Cookie Officer, I bring a rich and varied background to Wackym’s Kitchen products, from many years of training in fashion design, art, and art history, including fifteen years working as a fashion designer, to six years spent leading Neiman Marcus' Epicure and Candy product development team. This diverse professional journey led me to open Wackym's Kitchen.
One of the questions asked by a lot of customers who have met me at the local markets or in stores is "what's up with all the hats?". The first year we started selling Wackym's Kitchen's cookies at the Dallas Farmers Market and the cold weather hit, I made every effort to stay warm, which included trying different hat options. One of the hats I tried was a Tyrolean hat, a gift from my goddaughters that had never been worn. To perk up the hat, I added some vintage red feathers, and not only did the feathers perk up the hat, they also perked up the conversation with customers and distracted me from the cold weather. One hat led to another - season after season - and eventually, I became "the cookie guy in a hat" - now a customer expectation, and my delight.
Our website offers eleven all-natural cookie varieties throughout the year. We also highlight two seasonal flavors on a rotating basis, so keep a look-out for our 2015 sofi award-nominated Salted Sour Lemon, or our Red Pepper Apricot, or our Strawberry Shortcake, or...our next new flavor. We offer all sorts of gifting options or you can choose Just Cookies and treat yourself.
Life is sweet, eat great treats.
