Thanksgiving is coming, Thanksgiving is coming! I do believe it may be my favorite holiday because of time with extended family. Each year, it is a surprise to see which members come into town to be with all of us here.
Since we do not host Thanksgiving, we often bring a side and/or some desserts. Dessert is my favorite item to make. TechyDad does most of the cooking, but I adore baking. Usually, I will make my apple cake or some bon bon cookies. This year, we will be spending the day with my parents for a relatively small and quiet day together. Of course, this year I am not sure if we will have time to do any baking. Check that. I may not want to do any baking since I am too excited to try more baked good from an event I recently went to.
Two weeks ago, I was invited to a Price Chopper Holiday Cheer event (#PCHolidayCheer – on Twitter). While at the Price Chopper corporate building, they invited us to be their guests. We were able to chat with members from their departments and sample items.
I have to admit, my eyes immediately wandered to one specific section. I think I was most intrigued with the Decadent Desserts because we had already tried the new cupcakes a short time before this event. Now, feast your eyes on more of Price Chopper’s Central Market Decadent Dessert line.
The display showed only some of the items currently available at the Price Chopper bakery department. Please refrain from drooling on your computer as I list some of the amazing items you can try:
Cakes – available in 5” or 8” round:
- Cannoli Dream
- Black Forest
- Belgian White Truffle
- Lemon Berry Bliss
- German Chocolate
- 7th Heaven
- Coconut Carrot
- Mocha Madness
- Strawberry Duet
- Raspberry Royale
- Chocolate Chantilly
- For the Love of Peanut Butter
- Tres Leches
In addition to the cakes, they also have Éclairs, Strawberry Croissants, Petite Cheesecakes, Chocolate Bombes, Cannolis (made fresh to order so they are still crunchy), Peanut Butter Pie, Decadent Minis, Freshly Bakes Crullers, Decadent Apples, Tuxedo Strawberries, Brownies (look like brownie mini-cakes with different toppings), Fresh Fruit Tart, and of course the Cake in a Cup (monster sized cupcakes).
When talking with members of the Price Chopper Decadent Dessert Team, I asked a question. The Colonie store has a Kosher Bakery. I was curious if most of the items could be made to order there if I ever want to entertain at my house where we keep kosher. I was told that almost every item is, just raspberry items would not be an option. SCORE! This is great to know since we may need something to bring with us from a bakery when going to family or friends.
I do believe that I need to talk to TechyDad and my mother. I think we may have to try the Cannoli Dream cake for Thanksgiving or some other event coming up soon. Yes, the description sold me with the Cannolis along with the real whipped cream on top. YUM!
Oh and if we do not get these for Thanksgiving, my birthday, Chanukah, and holiday parties are just around the corner. I know we will be sampling more of these in our future.
More from the event to share soon. Again, a huge thank you to the entire team at Price Chopper for inviting me to this wonderful event.
Disclosure: I was invited to the Price Chopper Holiday Cheer event to learn about new items and holiday entertaining ideas with other bloggers. I was not compensated or expected to write any reviews. All opinions are my own. I did receive a bag of goodies, along with some amazing new cheeses to thank me for coming.
Not sure if you guys also keep strict no meat with dairy, but if you do, that’s something you’ll want to keep an eye on. Often the cakes are OU-D (dairy).

Devo – yes, most of the cakes are OU-D thanks to the use of dairy products. IF we get them for Thanksgiving, they would be used long after the meat meal. I have a feeling we will wait for another occasion that we do not need a parve dessert.
