Sprinkles is teaming up with Austin, Texas barbecue specialists LeAnn Mueller and Alison Clem of la Barbecue to create the new Savory Scone, the second drop of its new Female Chef Series (FCS). The scones will be available at Sprinkles bakeries nationwide from May 30 to June 12.
The Savory Scone is Sprinkles’ first foray into savory baked goods. Drawing inspiration from family favorites, the Savory Scone features bites of bacon, jack cheese, cracked pepper and spices that contribute to the flavors la Barbecue is famed for.
As part of the collaboration, Sprinkles is making a donation to Mueller and Clem’s nonprofit of choice, Allgo, an organization that nurtures and celebrates queer people of color.
“We’re excited to celebrate Pride Month with the launch of our Sprinkles savory scone and appreciate the opportunity to support the LGBTQIA+ community through this collaboration that benefits Allgo, a nonprofit that nurtures and celebrates queer people of color. It is also an honor to be able to share a bit of our unique Texas flare with Sprinkles fans everywhere,” says Mueller and Clem.
Sprinkles announced the launch of its first ever Female Chef Series back in March, featuring a new signature baked treat from four game-changing women in the culinary industry in the months of March, June and September. In tandem with each run, Sprinkles will make a donation to the chef’s charity of choice.
