I love when passion meets (Scone) success especially for foodpreneurs. Hala Yassine, owner of Seven Sisters Scones in Johns Creek, GA, her dream began baking scones for family and friends. Their rave reviews soon gave way to Hala selling her baked goods at local farmer’s markets along with an eCom site offering. This year Seven Sisters Scones took a big leap into the brick and mortar world.
Success in the food world is highly competitve and does not come easy. Needless to say, it’s all about the products and the ability to deliver to customers’ expectations.
When the Atlanta Food Blogger Society offered us an opportunity to “Get Seven Sisters Sconed” I immediately said, Yes!” I am a huge fan of scones and biscottis. I was intrigued about Seven Sisters Scones’ “modern take on scones.”
The day the package arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find not only a variety of scones, both sweet and savory, but blueberry biscotti and something called Gourmet Croutons.
Like a little girl on Xmas morning I was excited to unwrap and tasted everything at once. Hmm… maybe Santa might enjoy a triple chocolate scone instead of a chocolate chip cookie!

I chose the Fig and Goat Cheese to enjoy with my am coffee. That along with the Vanilla Bean became my favs. The scones had a cake-like consistenty and crumb to them but with a firm bite. You know in some flavor baked goods the flavors are muted? Not here. The flavors were ‘taste-able’ and the lingering after taste of all the products was delightful.
What better way to add a special treat to an afternoon break than with a blueberry biscotti. The biscotti was crunchy with tart berries just right for a dunk or two!
The big surprise for me was the Three Cheese Croutons. Thinking that I’d save them for a special salad I opened the package for a sample taste. Divalicious! Crunchy and cheesey it was difficult not to eat the entire bag. Would be wonderful on French onion soup.
