Seven Sisters Scones: A Review of the Halloween Candy Box
Establishment: Seven Sisters Scones
Founder: Hala Yassine
In the bustling culinary scene of Atlanta, Seven Sisters Scones stands out as an artisan baker with a flair for innovation. Founded by Hala Yassine, the fourth of nine siblings, this establishment has carved a niche for itself by reimagining the traditional scone. My review today centers on their Halloween Candy Box, a seasonal offering that brings the spirit of Halloween to their renowned scones.
Assortment and Flavors:
The Halloween Candy Box is a delightful tribute to the spookiest time of the year, featuring an assortment of 36 mini or large scones. Each flavor is inspired by popular Halloween treats:
- Mounds: A tropical twist, where coconut and dark chocolate blend harmoniously.
- Oreo: A nostalgic favorite, capturing the essence of the beloved cookie.
- Twix: A playful take on the candy bar, balancing caramel and chocolate.
- Cotton Candy: Surprisingly whimsical, evoking childhood memories of fairs.
- Starburst: A burst of fruity flavors, reminiscent of the chewy candy.
- Chocolate M&M: A classic choice, with the unmistakable charm of M&Ms.
Taste and Texture:
Seven Sisters Scones has successfully infused the essence of each candy into these scones. The Mounds scone is rich and decadent, with a pleasant coconut texture. The Oreo variant is a crowd-pleaser, capturing the cookie’s essence while maintaining the scone’s integrity. The Twix scone stands out for its caramel notes, and the Cotton Candy scone is a surprisingly pleasant experiment. The Starburst scone is fruity and tangy, while the Chocolate M&M scone is a safe yet delightful choice.
The scones themselves boast a perfect balance of crumbly and moist, a testament to the use of real butter and fresh herbs. The creativity in flavors is commendable and showcases the bakery’s willingness to push boundaries.
Packaging and Presentation:
The scones arrived in a well-designed package, ensuring freshness and visual appeal. Each flavor was distinctively marked, making it easy to navigate through the assortment. The Halloween theme was tastefully executed, adding to the overall experience.
Seven Sisters Scones’ Halloween Candy Box is a testament to the bakery’s commitment to innovation and quality. The fusion of familiar candy flavors with the traditional scone is executed with finesse. While some flavors might be an acquired taste, the overall experience is delightful and worth exploring. This box not only serves as a great treat for Halloween but also showcases the bakery’s potential for festive and creative offerings.
For those in Atlanta or elsewhere (thanks to their nationwide shipping), Seven Sisters Scones offers a unique culinary experience. Their Halloween Candy Box is a seasonal delight that shouldn’t be missed. It’s a commendable effort by Hala Yassine and her team, offering a whimsical yet gourmet twist to the humble scone.
