On the Road Eats: Comforting Desserts

The Food NetworkSugardaddy’s Sumptuous Sweeties of Columbus, Ohio was honored in the article On the Road Eats: Comforting Desserts by the Food Network. The article highlights top dessert pics from all  over the nation.

“The owners of this brownie-centric bakery believe that ‘blondes really do have more fun,’ especially when referring to the eatery’s tropical Tahiti Blondie. Featured on Throwdown, this brown sugar blondie stands apart from other bars with its delicious additions of crushed pineapple, shredded coconut and toasted cashews. Tasting like “an island in a brownie,” the gourmet treat is both nutty and buttery, and packs a wow factor when wrapped up in the bakery’s signature silk bag. As an added perk, the blondies are also edgeless, as the owners know that the best part of a brownie is the chewy center, so they use biscuit cutters to shape their bars into circles for a perfect bite every time.”

Throwdown with Bobby Flay and Sugardaddy’s!


Bobby Flay, host of the Food Network’s Throwdown With Bobby Flay, visited Columbus to challenge the bakery’s executive chef, Tom Finney, to a bake-off.

“With about 150 people watching… Flay baked brown-sugar blondies (a non-chocolate variety), while Finney cooked the blondies that have garnered rave reviews from Sugardaddy’s customers.”

“Until Flay walked through the door, however, Finney, and co-owner and co-founder Mark Ballard, thought they were being filmed as part of a new series.”
