If you plan to visit the Du Quoin State Fair in DuQuoin, Illinois, this week, make sure to stop at the Made in Southern Illinois area in the Exhibition Hall, where they have the prize vegetables, crafts, and everything homemade. Just to the right as you enter the Hall, you’ll find, among other local vendors, Eve’s Treats.
When you see Eve’s lovely display of baked goods, made fresh from natural ingredients, you won’t be able to resist making a purchase of her delicious cookies, muffins, or double chocolate peanut butter brownies (Brownie Bites also available), or maybe a loaf of her Belizean Bunn bread, a slightly sweet, dense round loaf, flavored with nutmeg and, Eve told me, a little bit of cumin.
These are just a few of the tasty bakery items that Evelyn Love (the Eve of Eve’s Treats) has on display at the Du Quoin State Fair now, and weekly in Carbondale’s Town Square at the Saturday morning market. If you can’t make it to either of these places, you can also see her baked goods on her website, EvesTreats.com, or check out Eve’s Treats on Facebook. You can order in person or by phone at 618-713-7493, or by email: Order@EvesTreats.com.
While Eve’s baked goods are delicious, they aren’t overly sweet, made “with your health in mind, free of additives and preservatives.” She sells sugar-free and Splenda-free jam (“It’s a party in your tummy”) as well as delicious low-cholesterol items. Eve’s Treats are just what people want and need to eat these days. Eve’s Treats carry a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not satisfied, she’ll make it right. But you will be satisfied!
In addition to her regular items, Eve creates beautifully decorated treat baskets which can include personal items such as gift cards or movie tickets, starting at $25 plus tax. Eve’s Treats does platters for office meetings or parties, with prices starting as low as $35 plus tax.
And Eve’s Treats’ latest creation is the Warm-N-Fuzzy-a kind of care package consisting of ½ dozen fresh, made-to-order assorted cookies, a pint of delicious milk, and your personalized note. What could be a better surprise gift for your college student, young career person, or even–especially–someone in the military service? Eve’s Treats delivers these throughout the United States and Guam, for $15 plus tax-delivery included.
If you want to get a discount on Eve’s baked goods on a Saturday morning, simply go to her Facebook page (Eve’s Treats) and find out the phrase for the day. It might be something like, “I’m a fan,” or “Yummy to my tummy!” If you say it at the market, you’ll get something free and delicious with your purchase, or a discount on it. Or go to her Facebook page just to see the comments from happy customers and her own bubbling enthusiasm about providing people with the kind of delicious baked goods they haven’t enjoyed since childhood.
If you haven’t met Eve and sampled her wares, you’ve been depriving yourself of a very special treat, in Carbondale, Illinois, and on the web at Eve’s Treats.
