Flavor 200: Girl Scouts help create “Happy Heart”
Goji, orange, apple, cranberry, chocolate, whole wheat yum
At 4pm, Wednesday February 16, 2011, Carolina Cupcakery will reveal “Happy Heart”, their new heart-healthy cupcake that is trans fat-free and tastes amazing, having been inspired by the Girl Scout cookie, “Thank You Berry Munch”.
A percentage of profits from the evening’s sales at the bakery will be donated to the LifeNet Foundation. Cupcake samples and smiles will be given free at Carolina Cupcakery’s Ghent location on the corner of Colley and 21st Street in Norfolk, Virginia.
February 16, 2011 was chosen for the event because the date marks the anniversary of Andy Barnard’s heart donation seven years ago and he will be at the store, answering questions. Barnard is a well-known speaker for organ donation through LifeNet, and the brother of Carolina Cupcakery owner Dawn Eskins’.
Williams School Girl Scout Troop 1708 helped create the cupcakes last week with Miss Dawn in her Norfolk kitchen, while learning about antioxidants and probiotic ingredients. On Wednesday, Scouts will help hand out “Happy Heart” samples and take orders for cookies being delivered next week, too.
