Tradition Made Easy: Holiday Flavors from Sticky Fingers Bakeries

Sticky Fingers Bakeries, dba SFB Specialty Foods, was founded by fraternity brothers Tom Owens and Ted Vogelman in 1987. Today they make 18 all natural mixes for English scones, in addition to mixes for muffins, brownies and Irish soda bread. Decadent and outrageously delicious, the line is the largest selection of nationally sold premium bakery mixes.

The latest additions will enliven any holiday retail shelf. “Holiday time constraints make it difficult to even think about baking from scratch. We offer the best of both worlds―homemade taste and incredible convenience,” said co-owner Tom Owens.

The latest holiday scone from Sticky Fingers Bakeries, Vanilla Chai, bursts with fragrant cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. It is perfect with tea. Other favorites include Spiced Eggnog, Peppermint Chocolate Chip (packed with semisweet chips and real peppermint pieces), Spiced Pumpkin, Pumpkin Cranberry and Cinnamon Raisin scones. Handcrafted English Curds, Northwest Jams, Pepper Jellies and Fruit Butters go perfectly with the scones.

Sticky Fingers also debuted its gluten-free scone mixes this year. Certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization and manufactured in a gluten-free facility, the scones are as delicate and crumbly as the originals. Choose from Original, Wild Blueberry, Apple Oat and Meyer Lemon, all naturally delectable and with no saturated or trans-fats, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. The mixes are certified gluten-free and certifiably delicious.
