6 Whole Foods Bakery Items Customers Are Currently Raving About

Although best known for its many organic products, Whole Foods is also gaining a reputation for having one of the best bakery departments in the grocery business.

Desserts are a big specialty, particularly cakes such as the store's self-proclaimed "cult favorite" Berry Chantilly Cake, but also brownies, muffins, and cookies, too. "People ask for my cookie recipe all the time," one shopper recently commented on Instagram, "the secret is Whole Foods."

Everything baked in-house is made with unbleached flour and cage-free eggs, with no hydrogenated fats or high-fructose corn syrup, according to the company's website.

If you're an Amazon Prime member, then you're eligible for daily deals on all sorts of baked goods, which are advertised online.

Here are six desserts from the Whole Foods bakery that fans can't get enough of lately.

We firmly believe that any treat consisting of brown butter is the superior sweet. Whole Foods' brown butter butterscotch pretzel cookies look as divine as they sound. First announced on Twitter last January, the cookies garnered renewed attention last week via Instagram's @wholefoodshype. "Drooling," remarked one commenter. "[L]iterally sprinting to my Whole Foods tomorrow to try and snag these!!" wrote another. The cookies sell for $7.50 and come in a pack of four.


Berry Chantilly Cake

The Berry Chantilly Cake has been branded a "cult favorite" for a reason, with its berry filling in between layers of vanilla cake and topped with whipped mascarpone. A recent Reddit thread about Whole Foods desserts is loaded with comments on the specialty cake, which users described as "delicious" and "amazing." One noted, "I came to this thread to ensure the Chantilly was mentioned. I typically hate cake…but the chantilly is the be[s]t."


Almond Croissants

"The almond filling is great and they're so flaky and delish!" Customer reviews on Amazon give it four stars out of five. One commenter wrote: "Very tasty flaky treat to wind down the day w/ tea! Keep extra in the freezer!


Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes

Whole Foods offers a wide variety of cupcake flavors, as one TikToker recently found. One standout is the salted caramel chocolate cupcake, spotted recently for $4 a pop. It looks pretty decadent too, with a salted caramel buttercream and what appears to be some chocolate candy on top, drizzled with what one reasonably assumes to be caramel.


AMAZING cupcakes are at the Whole Foods bakery! 🧁 I spotted so many delicious flavors! $4 each! #wholefoodsmarket #cupcakes #cupcakelover #dessertlover

For the vegans out there, many Whole Foods locations offer doughnuts made with palm oil shortening instead of butter. The chocolate raspberry variety has been a fan favorite since they were first spotted on Instagram in December 2022. The rounds are currently sold as singles ($2.25) or a six-pack ($8.99) on the store's website. We recommend checking with your local Whole Foods to confirm that it carries them.

The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
