Richmond, California-based Rubicon Bakers unveiled its seasonal holiday product line in early November.
The line features Gingerbread Layer Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing; Pumpkin Salted Caramel Cupcakes; Peppermint Fudge Cupcakes; and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins.
Rubicon Bakers is a social-mission company that seeks to “Bake a Better World” through its conscious business practices, the sourcing of ingredients free from artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, and its mission to hire and support those with significant barriers to employment. Many employees come to Rubicon Bakers from life on the streets, from prison or recently recovered from substance abuse.
“With Rubicon Bakers’ baked goods in more than 2,500 stores across the country, we’re thrilled to reach millions of consumers,” said Andrew Stoloff, president. “The holidays are a time to connect with family, friends and community, and we hope our desserts can bring a little extra delight into everyone’s lives this holiday season.”
The Gingerbread Layer Cake is filled and topped with lemon cream cheese icing and surrounded by gingerbread crumbs; SRP $7.99.
With SRPs of $5.99 each, the filled cupcake and muffin 4-packs complete Rubicon Bakers’ holiday line. The Pumpkin Salted Caramel Cupcake is filled and iced with salted caramel icing, while the Peppermint Fudge Cupcake is filled with chocolate fudge and topped with peppermint icing and a non-GMO candy cane crunch. The Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins are filled with cream cheese and topped with toasted pumpkin seeds.
The treats are all certified Kosher and will be available at select Whole Foods Market locations, Northern California Target stores, Sprouts Farmers Market, Ralphs, Safeway and independent retailers nationwide this holiday season.
