The Cravory Revisits
Ever since The Cravory opened a brick and mortar shop, we’ve become frequent customers. It’s gotten to the point where Mr. K is trying to convince me that we need a drawer in our kitchen full of fresh baked cookies, like the set-up at The Cravory. Yeah, that isn’t going to happen.
I documented my first visit here, and I’ve been collecting pictures from various other visits (when I remember and haven’t already eaten the cookies) but I haven’t had time to share until now.
In addition to visiting on our own to satisfy our sugar cravings with their unique flavored cookies, we also got to attend an event when The Cravory hosted a group of San Diego food bloggers and let us make our own customized flavors in their kitchen. I wanted to share some photos from that fun event as well.
In the last two months, Mr. K and I have eaten about 3 dozen Cravory cookies. Yikes. While I love all the new flavor combinations they are constantly creating, my favorite are two of their signature flavors: chocolate truffle and lemon bar.
The chocolate truffle is a must-have for any chocoholic. I don’t even know how they cram so much rich chocolate flavor into the tiny little cookie.
The lemon bar flavored cookie tastes remarkably similar to a lemon bar with its balance of sweet and tart and even though I normally stay away from citrus desserts, I’ve become a big fan of this one. This is also Mr. K’s favorite.
Here are some recent new-to-me flavors we’ve had:
I know this is starting to sound redundant, but this really has all the flavors of a blueberry muffin, but while still maintaining a cookie form and cookie texture.
This is actually one of their special flavors of the month for the month of April, so if you are interested, go soon to try it! (Disclosure: The Cravory provided me with a few free Halo Halo cookies to sample). I was so surprised they came out with this flavor, inspired by the Filipino dessert.
It starts with a taro dough swirled with their almond joyous dough. The mix-ins include red beans, shredded coconut, and nata de coco. I love the faint purple tint of the dough.
Banana Coffee Cake
I wasn’t as much of a fan of this one, I think mainly because I wasn’t prepared for the bacon bits mixed in.
Some more of their classics: Birthday Cake and Almond Joyous
And here are a few pictures from the day a group of San Diego Food Bloggers were invited into their kitchen to make our own custom cookies. Turns out, creating the right combination of flavors is harder than it looks. While the cookies Mr. K and I created came out quite pretty, I didn’t think any of them tasted as good as the flavors offered at The Cravory.
Here’s Chef Derek making our cookies:

Now I’m really craving a cookie…
