Wonderland Bakery, a specialty bakery with stores in Newport Beach, California and Las Vegas, Nevada, recently had its products featured on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ by guest Whoopi Goldberg.
It all started in 2008 when Whoopi was on a mission to find “The Best Gingerbread Cookie” that was reminiscent of her childhood memory of this classic treat. There was a coast to coast search and taste test with the final results broadcast on ABC’s ‘The View,’ December 10, 2008. Whoopi officially declared ‘Wonderland Bakery’s Gingerbread Cookie’ as her favorite and she has been a loyal customer since 2008.
On an early November episode, Whoopi was a guest on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon and shared them with him. “I love these (gingerbread) cookies, they are so soft,” says Fallon, as he started to chant “Get your cookie on”.
Wonderland Founder Allyson Ames and her staff bake and ship over 8,000 gingerbread cookies nationwide.
“We are honored to be selected as Jimmy and Whoopi’s favorite cookie,’” says Ames. “Some of my best memories when I was young was baking with my mom and creating desserts for my friends. Now I am living my dream in Wonderland helping others celebrate with yummy treats including Whoopi, Jimmy and their family and friends.”
