Special Valentine’s Day Treat from Bethlehem, PA!

This past Valentine’s Day I treated Nick and a few of our friends to some yummy cannoli from Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA. They made me lament the fact that Bethlehem is so far away.

For those who don’t know, Vegan Treats started offering their cannoli online for Thanksgiving/Christmas in 2013. They also sold cookie boxes for Christmas and boxes of awesome looking chocolates for Valentine’s Day.

An order of cannoli includes a dozen cannoli – 6 plain and 6 dipped in chocolate. I was a big fan of the plain, while Nick preferred the chocolate. The filling is creamy and sweet and the pastry was delicious and flaky.

The box arrived the day before Valentine’s Day via the US Postal Service and each half dozen was packaged in these cute little boxes:

They also came with a couple of postcards:

The cannoli are pricey ($48 for a dozen or $50 for a gluten free dozen), but definitely worth it! After all if I can’t get to Bethlehem, PA every year, at least I can get something delivered right to my door! I’m hoping they do something cool for Halloween and even though I don’t celebrate Easter, I wouldn’t mind another opportunity to get more goodies!
