And if you need a casserole for dinner later in the week, you can pick that up here too.

The cake slices are enough for two, so keep that in mind when making your selection. You cannot go wrong with the Banana Chocolate Chip, Red Velvet, or Coffee Toffee. I’ve been enjoying those three choices for years on special occasions and will continue to do so.

Publix‘s Bakery

Why Go Here: Because two-dozen chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin, and/or peanut butter cookies are only $3.99 at Publix (half that if you catch them on a BOGO sale day). I bake and cook a lot, but have yet to produce a cookie that beats these, both in tastiness and pricing.
