Ingredients all the way from Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme chocolate pieces, bacon bits, Teddy Grahams among others are tossed into the cookie dough to develop such concoctions.

"My all-time favorite is "Buns of Steel", which is a Cinnamon Toast Crunch crusted cookie stuffed with a Cinnamon Bun Oreo," said Naftaly. "The crazier the cookie, the better!"

Currently, Kindness Kookies are available for purchase at Sauced located at 217 Washington Street where the flavors rotate on a weekly basis. Naftaly is excited to try new flavors each week and is hoping to expand as well as provide shipping to customers outside of the local area soon.
