Jaarsma Bakery Competing to Become the Sweetest Bakery in America

A purveyor of tasty treats of which many area residents partake is seeking a new title.

Jaarsma Bakery in Pella and Oskaloosa is proud to share that it is competing to be named the Sweetest Bakery in America. From March 1 through July 31, the Dawn Foods contest invites communities across the country to cast their vote and help their favorite bakery win the title of Sweetest Bakery in America.

“Jaarsma Bakery has been baking delicious Dutch treats since 1898. Since that time one thing has never changed; we take pride in the tradition of baking the finest quality baked goods from scratch. Our customers support us from every corner of America and we love baking for our fans near and far. We’d love everyone’s support in earning the title of Sweetest Bakery in America,” said co-owner and fourth generation family baker, Kristi Balk.

In September, Dawn Foods will name one national, grand prize winner, second and thirdplace national winners, and winners in each state, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. The national winner will receive publicity support for their bakery, a celebration party and an innovation session to create even more delicious treats for their community. State winners will also receive support from Dawn Foods to help promote their bakeries in their communities.
