My Review of the Spinach Sweet Crisp Salad and Whoopee Pie @ Corner Bakery
Recently my daughter Ari and I went to the Corner Bakery to try the Spinach Sweet Crisp @ the Corner Bakery Calabasas. We were two of the many people that did an rsvp for the free salad. It was soooo good. It included: Baby spinach tossed with freshly sliced strawberries, oranges, red grapes, dried cranberries, green onions, creamy goat cheese and raisin pecan sweet crisps, drizzled with our homemade pomegranate vinaigrette. I must say the portion size was nice. It was not what I expected. Corner Bakery did not hold back on the portion size. It was just right and pretty filling. However; while standing in line try to figure out what else we should order a gentleman that we met as we were walking in noticed that we ordered the salad and was confirming how good it would be and that he was happy we were able to rsvp for the salad. He then looked at the cashier and told her he wanted us to try the Whoopee Pie and to put it on his account. I did not know he worked there, I thought to myself. He started telling us how good the pies would be. On the menu it says these pies are incredible treats are made with creamy vanilla buttercream filling sandwiched between two rich chocolate cakes. They also had one with peanut butter filling, but we did not try that one. I was so surprised he gave us the pies. It pays to be nice to people you never know who you may meet. When we tried the whoopee pie, we both agreed it was amazing!!!! I am not a sweet eater, but Corner Bakery gets me everytime. It was so moist and tasty. This is something everyone should try. I called back to the store thank the gentleman. When we met him his was in regular attire so I did not who he was, but when I called back I spoke with the manager she informed me that he is the area manager and just happened to be in for during the time we were there. Again, please go try the Spinach Sweet Crisp Salad and while you are there get some dessert, maybe the Whoopee Pie. Enjoy!
