Hi! We're Heather Amaral and Liz Pool. We started Zesty Cookie Company - a small-batch gourmet cookie (wholesale) bakery - in 2012. Our original cookie, theHot Cocoa, was based on a favorite family recipe for a Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate cookie. Our esteemed team of taste testers (thank you all) raved about its taste, mouth feel and pleasing kick of heat at the finish. We were confident that we were onto something and were eager to introduce this unique twist on a sweet treat to a broader audience! So, we founded Zesty Cookie Company and created an entire line of delicious gourmet cookies - all with just a hint of cayenne.
