Yesterday, Larry and I ventured over to the heart of Lincoln Park to attend Swirlz customer appreciation party. They had music playing, free cupcakes, raffles, a balloon artist and free beer tasting from Goose Island. They were also passing around frosting shots that had vanilla frosting & Demolition beer in them. I made Larry try one because I couldn’t and he said they were surprisingly very good.
I enjoyed a free GF/vegan vanilla cupcake. Amazing! When I heard that they would be giving away free cupcakes, I expected the mini ones. There was nothing mini about this cupcake. I was also pleased with the amount of gluten free and vegan treats they had to choose from. I love Sprinkles, but the only problem with them is, is that they only offer one type of gluten free cupcake and as much as I love red velvet, it’s nice to have some other options. So of course I had to purchase 3 more gluten free cupcakes :-) I bought a vanilla cupcake with pumpkin flavored frosting, a banana cupcake with nutella frosting and a banana cupcake with chocolate frosting. So far I’ve eaten the vanilla with pumpkin and the banana with nutella frosting. Oh. So. Good. I was a little hesitant with the pumpkin frosting, but it tasted like a creamy pumpkin pie. The Banana nutella cupcake was also very good.
After I ate my free cupcake, and Larry was done tasting his beer, we went outside where they were holding the raffles. They called out a few names and the people weren’t there. And then they called Larry’s name! We NEVER win anything! He won a free t-shirt which he gave to me & a pin that says “Cupcakes make people happy”. Swirlz, has now become my go to place for cupcakes in the city.
