With affordable ticket pricing at an indoor facility, the sold-out event ensured a positive experience for every family. Featuring activities, giveaways, entertainment, food, and goodies, the 3rd Annual Spring Family Egg Hunt was most certainly a success!

On April 6, 2019, the Wichita Sports Forum flooded with giggly toddlers, enthusiastic parents, and even some preteens who weren’t too cool for an egg hunt!

We anticipate the Spring Family Egg Hunt becoming a spring family tradition for Wichita families for years to come.

Wichita Moms Blog knows how to provide quality family fun and we appreciate their love for local businesses!

3 Reasons to Eat Sunflower Seed Cookies

Our sunflower seed cookies not only make a delightful treat but complement your cravings with naturally delicious ingredients. 

When compared to a classic sandwich-style cookie, (you know, the kind where a generous amount of crème is stuffed between two chocolate cookies) sunflower seed cookies like ours at Grace’s Best do not conform to a pattern of tradition. And that’s the thing we love most about our cookies: there’s nothing traditional about them!

But why bother choosing Grace’s Best sunflower seed cookies over that of a leading brand? 

1. We’re family-owned and based locally in Kansas City, MO.

In 1992, Grace’s grandmother, Margaret, forged a new path and began selling the cookies that her loved ones in the Kansas City area simply couldn’t get enough of. With an idea all her own and the support of her family, she started a lasting tradition using a non-traditional recipe. Since then, her son has taken over the company to honor his mother’s legacy and bring her sunflower seed cookies recipe to taste buds that crave a different kind of snack.

Plus, we love the local scene and supporting the small grocers that carry our cookies!

2. Grace’s Best Cookies are made with naturally delicious ingredients.

Artificial preservatives and artificial flavors make no sense in our cookies! We only include pronounceable and recognizable ingredients so that what you see on the label is what you taste. Take a peek at the ingredients we use in our sunflower seed cookies – ones you can find right in your own kitchen:

  • Rolled oats
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Sweet cream butter (milk)
  • Brown sugar
  • Enriched unbleached flour
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract

On the other hand, the ingredients for a basic sandwich cookie tell a completely different story! What are you familiar with on this list?

  • Unbleached Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour
  • Niacin
  • Reduced Iron
  • Thiamine Mononitrate {Vitamin B1}
  • Riboflavin {Vitamin B2}, Folic Acid)
  • Sugar
  • Palm And/Or Canola Oil
  • Cocoa (Processed with Alkali)
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Leavening (Baking Soda And/Or Calcium Phosphate)
  • Salt
  • Soy Lecithin
  • Chocolate
  • Artificial Flavor

High fructose corn syrup can link to major health risks; that’s why it’s often discouraged in high amounts. The last ingredient is simply listed as “artificial flavor,” meaning that some of the flavor comes from a chemical compound rather than its actual ingredients!

3. Our sunflower seed cookies contain less sugar and sodium than the leading sandwich cookie brand.

Let’s look at the nutrition facts. We compared a six-pack of sandwich cookies to a 1 oz. pack of Grace’s Best Cookies that contains 5 cookies. Prepackaged, both are convenient for snacking with a controlled serving. Here’s what we found:

Grace’s Best Sandwich Cookie
Calories 130 270
Total Fat 6g 11g
Saturated Fat 2.5g 3g
Sugars 8g 23g
Sodium 55mg 220mg

Next time you’re craving a sweet, crunchy snack, look at the label and then decide. We encourage everyone to pay careful attention to what goes into their bodies! Remember, even our sunflower seed cookies are still cookies, so snack wisely!

A Family Tradition in the Making

Grace’s Best Cookies was built on the foundation of a family tradition.

But what’s so traditional about a cookie made out of sunflower seeds and rolled oats?

 At first glance, there’s nothing traditional about our cookies. Where are the chocolate chips? What about the cream-filled center?

Behind these delicious, crunchy cookies is the story of how an authentic, non-traditional recipe stood the test of time and anchored a family in a new tradition.

 

It all starts with a woman named Margaret. Back in 1992, Margaret, who just happens to be Grace’s grandmother, started her own cookie company just outside of Kansas City, Missouri. She hoped to pass her sunflower-seeds-and-rolled-oats recipe down to the next generations in her family. These cookies in particular were her bestseller, her secret weapon, her masterpiece.

 

Margaret saw how her most loyal fans connected with the naturally delicious ingredients she incorporated into her recipe. And these tasty treats may be small, but they have big flavor.

Person holding Grace's Best Cookies

She refused to pass up the opportunity to make a tradition out of such a unique, non-traditional recipe. But she still needed someone who would carry out her legacy after she retired and have the same passion for her company.

 

She had one candidate in mind who fit that description perfectly. And it was none other than her son, Jeff. Fast-forward ten years to when Grace’s Best Cookies officially began as a family-owned and operated company.

 

In 2002, Jeff agreed to take the reins after Margaret retired and he named the company after his own daughter, Grace.

 

And since Jeff took over the company, over 99 million cookies have been sold in-store and online! Hundreds of grocers saw the potential of stocking their shelves with these sweet snacks. Select Whole Foods Markets, Natural Grocers, GreenAcres Markets, Hy-Vee, and countless other locations nationwide sell Grace’s Best Cookies.

 

Margaret’s vision of a family-owned tradition came to life. Together, both Jeff and Grace continue out her mission to make cookies for the next generation of dedicated snackers.
