Sugar and Spice Cookies

A great sweet snack in Buenos Aires

Sugar and Spice and everything nice

Sugar and Spice makes some fantastically delicious cookies and cakes. In a cafe-happy city like Buenos Aires, coffee and pastries may begin to become monotonous, but not at Sugar and Spice. This Palermo shop has left the coffee behind and instead focused on perfecting their pastries to be some of the finest quality in the city.

It may be difficult to sample them all, but those the ones you will try are extremely tasty, and a perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee. Don’t miss their “passion for chocolate” cookies and “super chocolate” budin (cake), if you are a chocolate lover. Also a good pick are the raisin and oatmeal cookies and, from their savory range of biscuits, the copetin fugazza (a biscuit flavored like fugazza, an Italian/Argentine pizza with no cheese or sauce – just the dough with onions, olive oil and oregano). Great stuff!

I find your article superlatively good but for months I have been telling people you sent me but with no results. Advice?

How would you know about the results? I’m the one sitting here amongst boxes of freebies thanks to your good work!

But did you really have to buy that many pairs of gaucho pants? Every fifth pair you buy off my referral I get sent a pair myself… I’m drowning in leather chaps here man!

You have a very good hability tyo divide all ypur posts in like 5 different ones, I like that. I think I´m going to copy you.
Hey, you are the king of marketing, why don´t you organize events for companies and you take us (bloggers) to all of them, why don´t you offer that service?

To tell you the truth, that is a fantastic idea Diva.
I would love to do that. The companies might not be interested in getting mentioned on one blog, but if they could get mentioned on many, they might well be.

First I’m going to call Alan Faena about getting us all rooms for a weekend in his hotel 🙂 After that, Sucre can invite us all to dinner…

Ha ha ha, Diva, I loved your idea! Alan, great post, as usual!

Thanks for dropping by Dalila 🙂

I’m actually serious about making Diva’s idea happen.

If I get time, I’ll try to organize an ‘alliance of Buenos Aires bloggers that love free things’.

Cool. You can say: “Oh, it’s actually really hard to get reviewed by us. It’s just your name is Alan too so I thought why not give Faena a try…”

The leather chaps must be from my unsuccessful attempt at shopping for a travesti outfit last halloween.

“Alan sent me”

Alan,

Thanks for the mention and the link. I also think your grandmother was a visionary ahead of her time.

Your list of stores are correct but limited. There are many more but if someone wants to know where they could get them they could write in to us or call and tell us what barrio they are interested in and we can point them in the right direction. If they write to me I always respond with a discount coupon as well for our store.

Your idea is great and you can even use this as an example since just about all the bloggers that went wrote about it.

And that’s the way the cookie crumbles.

Saludos,
Frank

Hey Alan,
Count me in! I’m definitely a Buenos Aires Blogger Who Loves Free Things!

Anyway, it was such fun to meet you, and all the jolly others (was it all the sugar + caffeine? Worked for me!)

I’m looking forward to the Cookie and Wine event.

Anyway, maybe one time we can have a bloggers tango party in Boedo!

Nathan,

Looking forward to seeing your costume this halloween. With bells on.

Frank,

No worries, sorry if I wasn’t too in depth on your locations, but thought it would be nice to give people an idea of where to look out for your Cookies etc. Good job on the coupons for those that write to you!

I hope I do get time to organize some kind of bloggers alliance, and if I do, yes this is an excellent example to show companies 🙂

Cherie,

I’ll let you know when some more free things might be on offer… I’ll try to make something happen, sometime this year.

In fact, maybe I should go after a wine shop first to help us out for the cookie and wine tasting event?

Take care all,

Alan

Damn, wish we could’ve been there… We had a leaky radiator and the guy said he was coming at 10am to fix it. Of course, it’s Saturday now and he still hasn’t shown up!

Frank, we’re coming for those cookies soon…

Will

Hey Will,

Shame you couldn’t make it, maybe the next one?

You will enjoy the cookies, I’m sure, they’re delicious. Although free things always seem to taste sweeter to me 😉

Cheers,

Alan

THAT SMILEY FACE LOOKS LIKE A COOKIE.

Thanks for dropping by.

I know what you mean COOKIE MONSTER.

Cookies are so good, they [9].

Not that I’m saying you’re in need of a diet, Mr Monster. I’m sure it’s just all the blue fur that makes you look that way…

#19 Comment By COOKIE MONSTER On July 3, 2007 @ 10:34 am

THANKS ALAN, I THINK THE BAG THOSE COOKIES COME IN MIGHT BE BETTER TASTING THAN THE COOKIES.

THE SMILEY FACES MIGHT BE BETTER THAN THOSE TOO.

WHO AM I KIDDING. I WILL TRY…
AWWWWM-NUM-NUM-NUM-NUM…

YEP, THE BAG AND THE FACES ARE BETTER.
