Of course, this particular store also has ice cream…

The above is a mini red velvet with salted caramel – a winning combo concocted by my brilliant cousins Mark/Jen.  I opted for “plain old” peanut butter cup, which contains TCHO Chocolate, but am fantasizing about the day I return for a red velvet cone or cookie sandwich.
