One of Copper Star Coffee's big Rice Krispies® Treats on a plate.

Bakery Staples: Homemade Rice Krispies® Treats

Rice Krispies® Treats are the memories of childhood. They are nostalgia—one of the first things we made as a kid. We remember standing on a stool so we could reach the bowl on the counter. Stirring, stirring, stirring until it was time to press the still warm treat into the pan. Then waiting, waiting, waiting for it to cool just enough to cut it into squares so we could finally eat it. Sigh.

Our homemade Rice Krispies® Treats are available fresh each morning while supplies last. And, just like our honking brownies, these treats are BIG.

Italian Soda-licious

Grape Italian Soda with CreamItalian sodas–those delicious, colorful, bubbly concoctions are just the non-coffee treat you need this summer. And we have a variety of flavors from which to choose, including sugar free. (Check out our flavors here.)

Never tried an Italian soda? Well, you’re in for a treat. They’re delicious, if we do say so ourselves.

A little history. Despite the name, Italian sodas were created in San Francisco, California. Modeled after the American soda, they offer a larger selection of flavored syrups. They are made by adding your favorite flavor to club soda and then topped with cream (optional). Yum!
