Treats for Pride

Pride kicks off this week in Vancouver, this is a festival that many people celebrate, whether you are gay or have friends or loved ones who are gay, or you just want to be a part of this wonderful commnuty celebration of life. This year many bakeries and sweet shops have created some fun treats to give to that special someone or too indulge on your own. Here is a selection of Pride related indulgences being offered at bakeries to chocolatiers, and beyond! I talked about many of these treats on my radio show on the “Best and the Foodiest” on CKNW 980 AM.
