Award winning New York City baked goods store, Levain Bakery has introduced a new, limited edition seasonal cookie for the summer. The new Rocky Road will be available both in store and online until the end of summer, and marks the first addition to the brand's line of cookies in 26 years.
Levain Bakery has made its name as the purveyor of crispy-outside, ooey-gooey-inside cookies in five classic flavours: Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, and Two Chip Chocolate Chip.
Levain founders Pam Weekes and Connie McDonald created the new Rocky Road cookie from their nostalgia of all things summer: roasting marshmallows in the backyard, road trips, campfires, and of course, a melty cone of rocky road ice cream on a warm summer day. Rocky Road starts with dark chocolate cookie dough mixed with rich semisweet chocolate chips, pillowy marshmallows and loads of roasted cashews. And since it's a Levain cookie, it has that signature gooey centre customers have come to expect.
"We only make cookies we truly love," said the founders. "It is fitting that our first seasonal cookie features chocolate and marshmallow, a classic combination we've loved since we were kids. As for the cashews, in our opinion, they simply don't get as much attention as they deserve! But with a rich depth of flavour, they balance the sweetness of the chocolate and marshmallows."
