Guest Post & Giveaway: Tookies

Today I have a sweet surprise for you (pun intended)...I am going to introduce you to the baking geniuses behind a lovely Etsy shop called Tookies.  Check out their site and see if you can make it out without drooling...I dare you.  I had them answer some questions to help us learn about their brand and why they do what they do.  Make sure to enter their great giveaway at the bottom of the post!

Tell us a little about the people behind Tookies.  Who runs the business?

We are a small family owned business in the south. We consist of 6 immediate family members :)  We (every one of us) have creative genes...guess it just runs in the family!  We run on the fuel of God, love, prayer and LAUGHTER!  We are a practical joking family, none of us can live without humor and being the next big/best practical joker.  We have a big family, including 3 amazing boxers!  We are also a full military family and we love our troops.  Being patriotic and supporting our military is one of the most important things to us!

Why did you decide to open the shop and when did it open?

We started as a hobby in 2010 and it blossomed into a full time love for our entire family :)

Why the name Tookies?

When our son was little, he couldn't say 'cookie' so he said 'tookie' and this is what we have all always called cookies :)

How many jar cakes do you make each week?

On average, without wedding and celebration orders, we do approximately 100-150 jar cakes a week just for daily orders.  If we have a wedding order, or special celebration custom order, it could add anywhere from 50-200 more jar cakes that week!
What is your favorite item to bake for the shop?

We love love making our marshmallows!!  They have been such an amazing new creation, with so many possibilities!  Then again our cookiewiches and jar cakes are so fun to create too!

Is there an item that seems to be the most popular?

This would have to be our SMORES bar jars!! They are AMAZING!!

I love the idea of the Support Our Troops jar cakes! Can you tell us a little about these?

We started creating these jar cakes because we are a longtime true and patriotic military family, 20 years strong!  We have SO much support for our troops!  We actually have a great deal of support for any military order.  We ship to APOs/FPOs, and for every military order we give 100% free shipping...and whatever is ordered we will add two of these jar cakes for free, plus many more extras!  You can read here on our profile for more info.
What are three tools in your workspace that you could not live without?

Only three?!!  Well, we would have to say SUGAR...butter and definitely love.  Without these three we just wouldn't be tookies.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Are you drooling yet, cause I know I am!  I have had the opportunity to sample some of the amazing Tookies creations and I will have a post on that later, but today you have the chance to win your own delicious treats!  Tookies is giving away a half-dozen Strawberry Lemonade Cookie-wiches!  I have tried these and TRUST ME, you will want to win these!!  Or, if you are the winner you can just send them my way...just kidding (kind of)!
Also, if your tastebuds are telling you to buy some Tookies right now (which I'm certain they are), you can use the promo code "modernmodest15" to get 15% off of your entire order!
