I was provided with complimentary Scratch cupcakes to facilitate this review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
Scratch cupcakes. Just the name makes my mouth water. Located in Ephrata, PA, they are my favorite little bake shop and makers of the world’s best cupcakes. Seriously. No one eats one without closing their eyes and savoring every bite. To-die-for is an understatement. One of the things I love about Scratch and Owner Laura Will, who is a total sweetheart, is that they have some very reliable go-to flavors that we always look for AND they also mix it up as the seasons come and go, giving you something new to look forward to each time you visit.
Summer is here and so are the summer flavors at Scratch. Each day is different and you’ll want to check their Facebook page where you can always find the most up-to-the-minute info including any specials being offered that day plus which flavors are available. The day we visited we grabbed this array of goodies. I mean really. Wipe the drool up off your keyboards people. They’re MINE. Actually they’re long gone and I did share, I promise. Several of these are our favorite cupcake go-tos: Cookies N Cream, Peanut Butter Lover, and Red Velvet to name a few. The ones I went gaga for were the Raspberry Lemonade cupcakes – pink one, front and center. Omigosh, so amazingly good. Tart, sweet, moist, fantastical.
I have no idea how they do it, get that much flavor and deliciousness into one cupcake. It’s truly an experience to eat one. So local friends, here’s what you do: You go to the Scratch website and Facebook page and find out what flavors are available on the day you can get there. Then you go. And you buy, and you eat and experience the divinity of a Scratch cupcake. If you’ve had one, you know what I mean. You just know. It’s like a club of people who know. Join us. Summer flavors won’t last forever! There’s always fall to look forward to but don’t miss out on you chance to try these while they’re around:
- Strawberry Shortcake
- Cotton Candy
- Banana Split
- Drumstick?! (Saw it on Facebook!)
Also if you have a dog, you need to get a Pup Cup. My dog Sam devoured this treat. He love it deeply and he need me to giz him more. I feel your pain, little doggie. Mama understands.
