It all started when Chris Russel, the founder of Treat House, decided to have a bake sale with his sons to raise money for kids in Africa.

People lined up, they cleaned house and Treat House was born.

His flavors are unpredictable and super creative, ranging from peanut butter cup (OMG) to bubble gum.

Yes you are seeing right - Raspberries, blueberries and oreo too

And what’s even sweeter, is that at Treat House, 10 cents of every purchase is donated to the Food Bank for New York City. As Chris says, “we live in an area where there is a high density of children…we think social responsibility is very important.”

Paying it forward.
