Finding a place to get great desserts in Detroit and surrounding areas isn’t something that’s very difficult to master. However, there seem to be very few places quite as original as Nana’s Gourmet Comfort Co.
The goal at Nana’s Gourmet is to provide the locals with food and products that are respectful to the planet, people and animals. Because of this, the business is organic, fair-trade and eco-friendly.
“We are determined to make the world a sweeter place, one bit at a time, with scrumptious treats that all can eat,” the company said.
Inside Nana’s Gourmet, customers will find the Nana’s World Cafe, which offers a variety of coffee and tea, free wireless internet and a wide selection of confections. The cafe’s signature product is a treat called the Pillowmellow.
Pillowmellows are marshmallows are that are not only vegan but also halal and kosher. This means that they do not contain high fructose corn syrup, and the flavorings are all natural. They abide by dietary restrictions of most cultures and religious groups. Pillowmellows come in many different flavors – anywhere from banana cream to root beer.
Other tasty products include S’more Babies, Vegan Cupcakes, Chocolate Barks, Candied Apples Dipped and Candied Asian Pears. Stories behind Nana’s signature treats can be found on the company’s Web site.
What also makes Nana’s Gourmet unique is that it is dog friendly. The store has installed hitches outside so that owners can make purchases and sit outside with their pet. In addition, dogs always get fresh water to drink and even get a free organic cookie when their owners purchase a drink.
