About Us

Made for the love of good cookies.

A great cookie should have amazing taste and flavor, feel soft, chewy and wholesome, and be there for you whenever you need one. At Gourmet Treats, those three principles drive each of our creations, along with the desire to create good food that’s accessible for everyone.

In 1998, Shaffin and Alyza sold their snack food distribution business and opened a bakery in Torrance, CA to make higher quality snacks for people who spent so much time in their cars and offices. With no formal training in commercial baking or food science, they developed and tested their own new recipes for soft & chewy cookies in classic flavors, using the best ingredients they could find to make an affordable cookie that tasted great.

As the food industry continues to evolve, so do our cookies.

We now make all of our products without eggs and dairy, and completely vegan, in our Kosher-certified facility. We use real, non-GMO ingredients like 100% whole grain flour, fruits, seeds, and nuts, and we don’t use anything artificial. But that hasn't changed the taste or texture of our cookies - and we dare you to prove us wrong on that!

You can now find our cookies on shelves in coffee shops, juice bars, markets and college campuses across California and other states along the west coast. We've expanded our product line to include Breakfast Cookies, Protein Cookies, and our original Cookies & Brownies, all made vegan from scratch in our bakery.

We hope you get a chance to try them; and when you do, let us know what you think!
