dancingdeer.jpgHave you ever had Dancing Deer cookies?  What?  No?!  What are you waiting for?  Tangerine-chocolate cookies have a lovely soft spot in the center of a crunchy treat.  Molasses-clove cookies are chewy every day and twice on Sundays. And the sugar cane-lime cookies.  Can’t talk.  Cookie-dreaming….

This is a company  you can love with more than your taste buds, though. Here are 6 reasons why a package of Dancing Deer cookies, (or brownies, or cake) would be a fabulous way to sweeten your Earth Day gathering, or any occasion large or small:

  • Women-Ownership: the CEO advocates for the advancement of women in business.
  • Employee Empowerment: every employee gets stock options, and the company is run with an “open book” management style.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging: 100% recycled paper and vegetable inks are used.  Check out their Honest Packaging page for more.
  • All-Natural Ingredients: read the back of a pack of cookies and you’ll see words like “flour, vanilla, eggs, cocoa.” Nothing more.
  • Philanthropy: through their Sweet Home program, your purchase can help fight family homelessness.  Families with children are among the fastest-growing homeless population.
  • Local: …if you live in or near Boston.  Which I do.  Yay!

How often do you get a chance to enjoy a treat and support a company that gives you the warm fuzzies?  Give them a try (they ship), and please share: What are your most admired companies?
