Kriya Kitchen, an All-Natural Cookie Company & a Giveaway {closed}

by Melissa on September 6, 2011

Cookies. cookies. cookies!



Today, I want to introduce you to my favorite local cookie kookie company: Kriya Kitchen.

Not only does Kriya Kitchen make all of their kookies from local and/or organically sourced products, they’re a company that is involved in the local Atlanta community by throwing monthly parties for the Atlanta Children’s Shelter.

I have been very lucky to get to work with this company on their branding, packaging design, web design and photography. So, you just might see a few of these photos over at the Kriya Kitchen website.



Kriya Kitchen started out known as Karmic Kookies, and sold their baked goods at local farmers markets and festivals. While you can still find them at a few select markets and festivals around Atlanta, Kriya Kitchen’s kookies just launched in Whole Foods stores throughout the Southeast US. So be on the lookout for them in your area.



Now, to on to the good tasty, delicious and oh so sweet stuff.

The flavors of the kookies. Kriya Kitchen does have the expected: chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal raisin currant. But they also have these incredible tea-infused shortbreads. My favorite being the Chai Shortbread. It is absolutely perfect with a hot tea in the morning.

In honor of the launch of Kriya Kitchen’s new branding, I am giving away one half-dozen pack of kookies, in the winner’s choice of flavor.



To Enter:

1.  Comment and tell me what flavor kookie you would pick if you win, and who is your favorite local foodcrafter in your area.

2. For a second entry, Follow Me on Twitter and Follow Kriya Kitchen on Twitter and then tweet the following:

“I just entered to win a @kriyakitchen kookie gift pack from @dashofeast http://bit.ly/pXmyFq ″

3. For a third entry, like Dash of East on Facebook and Kriya Kitchen on Facebook.

Contest will run until Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 11:59pm EST and winner will randomly be chosen and announced on Wed, Sept 14.  Kriya Kitchen will ship directly to the winner.

Open to continental U.S. readers only. Good luck!





Winner: Catlin S.
“Peanut butter for sure! I live in Washington, DC and the local vegan bakery, Sticky Fingers, is amazing. Not only do they have great coffee, but their sweet and salty oatmeal chocolate cookies are to die for. I had one for breakfast last week…”

Congrats Catlin!

Yumm! Chai shortbread sounds delicious (though so does chocolate chip … oh, decisions!) And my favorite local purveyor is the Painted Truffle. Chocolates to die for, and he gives back, to boot. :)

Hi Melissa! I place my vote for the chai shortbread kookies. Though the oatmeal currant is a close runner up. I recently moved to Atlanta from NYC for grad school at Tech. I love to bake bread, sweets and cook in general. I have been in search of local food fun and fares and came across your blog. It’s like I’ve struck gold! I can’t wait to check out the Marietta Sq. Farmer’s Markets and take advantage of upcoming festivals. Thanks, Melissa!

P.S. I recommend the restaurant, The Iberian Pig. Their tapas are amazing and the mushroom truffle flat bread was quite memorable, as well.

Hi Melissa! Welcome to Atlanta! What are you studying at Tech? I went there for my undergrad. Since you’re in Midtown, you definitely need to check out JCT Kitchen, West Egg Cafe, Antico Pizza and Papi’s Cuban Grill. Great local eateries close to you!

I haven’t made it over to The Iberian Pig yet, although I have heard wonderful things about it. It’s definitely on my list of places to try soon!

Hey Melissa! I’m a first year PhD student in biomedical engineering… so I’ll have a minimum of 5 years to explore the greater Atlanta area! I haven’t been to any of those places that you’ve mentioned, but have passed by West Egg Cafe often. Antico’s Pizza sounds delicious. I’ll have to convince some of my program mates to make an excursion there with me. Thanks for the recommendations! Also, I went to my first Tech football game last Thursday. Being from NYC, it was the first time I really witnessed the football culture here. Not sure how I feel about it yet…

I would have to snatch up some of those peanut butter chocolate chip cookies they have. Oh, and as far as the second part, I want to marry this little old lady who sells honey at the farmer’s market.

Oatmeal Currant! Would love to try a new twist on the old favorite. My favorite local food crafter sadly closed a few months ago. But bless him he’s back on his feet and trying again, this time in the form of a new food truck.

Well, while I LOVE ALL of your kookies, my favorite (and what I think is most genius) are the tea-infused shortbreads :)

The chai shortbread cookies look so delicious! My favorite local food is flavored milk form a local dairy– they make banana, orange, and even root beer flavored milk.
