Festive Sprinkles

To decorate Green and Gold Swirl Cupcakes, we headed out to our favorite bulk food store located in Gleason WI. Prairie Pines Bulk Foods is an Amish ran bulk food store that carries many, many wonderful items. Among those products are vegetables, fruits, many ‘in season’ produce too. They also have a small deli counter where you can purchase cheese, bulk meats and bacon. A dairy case with eggs, milk and yogurt.

Prairie Pines Bulk Foods carry anything and everything you’d need for baking, from flour to sugar, honey and maple syrup. Dried beans and grains such as rice, barley and oatmeal. Unlike other bulk food stores I’ve been in, Prairie Pines doesn’t carry an over abundance of candy or ‘snack’ foods. They handle more all natural and ‘good’ for your products but the do serve delicious ice cream:) Prairie Pines Bulk Foods (715) 873-4840.
