"This bar is amazingly gooey, crusty, chewy, sweet & salty, with the perfect amount of chocolate chunks. It's like a cookie dough bar—the perfect indulgence! We sell more of these than anything at Petunia's! Customers are addicted."

"This breakfast bundt is super moist, tender, with the perfect amount of chew, and a bright citrus pop of fresh orange zest. Simple, not too sweet. The Oregonian featured Petunia's and the recipe for this cake two months ago."
Thin Mint Brownie ($3.50)

"Women LOVE this brownie. Fudgy, rich, dark chocolate cocoa brownie, soft silky peppermint buttercream, and chocolate ganache on top. We've been told it's better than an orgasm by many, something that always makes us laugh, but we're just happy we're making people this happy."

Curious who the bakery is named after? That would be this porcelain pig, which is mounted high on a brick wall (and once hung in Lisa's mother's kitchen).
