On the past few weekends, I’ve been vending Squish Marshmallows at the local flea markets and food fairs in NYC. It’s been a blast, and it’s also allowed me to get introduced to some amazing, local food talent. Most recently, I got to try Jam Jar Bakery.
The signature item is their Jar Pie, a small mason jar filled with a complete little pie, layered in for eating on-the-go. And, no need to worry about finding a spoon, one comes strapped right on to the little jar. All the pies are made with natural ingredients, and thoughtfully crafted flavors.
I tried Monkey Madness (layered with a short bread crust with Toffee, Candied Pecans, topped with Banana Cake soaked in a light Amaretto Syrup). Now, I love bananas, so, this one was right up my alley. What I thought was really unique, is, you might see some other small businesses doing mason jar desserts, but what sets this one apart is the flavor profile, craft, and natural ingredients. I really enjoyed the banana cake approach, putting a different spin on the expected, standard pie. The toffee here was so clutch, almost like a sweet custard that married the cake and cookie crumble crust really nicely.
Name: Jam Jar Bakery
Location: Online and NYC locations
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure. And, if you can’t make it out to the NYC markets, they sell online too.
Would I recommend it? Yes, who doesn’t like a little dessert on-the-go?
