New York City-based Levain Bakery is getting a jump on the holiday season with the announcement of its holiday flavors and gifts, available starting in November.
Back by popular demand only for the holidays is a fan-favorite limited-edition flavor, Dark Chocolate Peppermint. This cookie has a dark and rich chocolate dough studded with soft red and white peppermint chips. It’s available online starting Monday, November 13 and in bakeries a week later on November 20.
Levain is launching a brand-new limited-edition holiday tin for its decadent cookies featuring whimsical holiday vignettes to add delight to the unboxing experience. It costs $15, excluding the cost of cookies. Also new this year, the bakery will be selling custom-made felt ornaments, one featuring a hand-made felt Levain cookie inside its iconic blue bag, and a second featuring a tree atop an NYC taxi cab. They are hand-embroidered in partnership with Craftspring, costing $20 each.
Levain ships fresh cookies anywhere in the lower 48 United States. Another holiday gift option is the Levain Cookie Club subscription. Each month, members receive an assortment of eight freshly baked cookies delivered to their door, plus perks like free shipping, 10 percent discounted pricing and early access to new flavors.
Founded in 1995 as a small bread shop on the Upper West Side of New York City, the bakery has become a renowned destination. It now has over a dozen locations across New York, Washington, DC, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles.
