Caroline's Desserts specializes in pinkies-out, fancy versions of the classic Rice Krispie treat.
Crème Brûlée Cart is keeping San Franciscans on their toes, twittering their location and flavors daily. I'd totally follow their beckon call to score some chocolate peanut butter cup creme brulee.
Granville Whoopie Pies specializes in...well, you guessed it--but in unique flavors like black forest cherry, lemon poppyseed, and buckeye. Nom.
High 5 Pie is the brainchild of Dani Cone, owner of Fuel Coffee, whom I suspect is a genius, what with products like PieJars, pie pops and mac and cheese hand pies.
Hotlix is a company that specializes in lollipops with bugs inside. Yup, you heard that right.
Las Paletas in Nashville, as you can see from the Yelp reviews, sells "popsicles, and only popsicles" - in flavors like hot chocolate and chili, mexican caramel, peanut butter, raspberry and lime, honeydew, cantaloupe, tamarind, cucumber with chili, elderflower and more.
Led Zeppole specializes in zeppoles, and has a name that makes me laugh every time I see it.
Sweetfields Inc. specializes in flowers...that you can eat!
