Teen Earns Seat as Sophmore Class Treasurer with Help from Smileycookie.com

ONLEY, Md., Oct. 29

Evan Schwartz, 15, may not be running for a seat in the senate, or campaigning for congress, but he knows getting voters attention during election season begins with putting a smile on constituents’ faces- 25 dozen to be exact.

A Victorious Evan Schwartz Poses With His Campaign Sign and A Smiley Cookie!

Schwartz passed out 300 Smiley Cookies to his classmates during his campaign for sophomore class treasurer at Sherwood High School in Olney, MD, encouraging them to vote. His idea to order from SmileyCookie.com made a bold statement alongside his candy-giving running mates.

“Everyone loved the Smiley Cookies from SmileyCookie.com. I got a great response from my friends and teachers, and people are already talking about my campaign next year,” said Schwartz, who plans to order from SmileyCookie.com again when he runs for Sherwood High School’s Student Government Association as a junior.

Pittsburgh-based Eat’n Park, a family dining restaurant chain with locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, made the Smiley Cookie famous over the last two decades and recently expanded their availability through SmileyCookie.com. The Schwartz family learned about the cookies thanks to visits from relatives in Pittsburgh, who brought Smiley Cookies to family events.

SmileyCookie.com conveniently delivers gourmet Smiley Cookies fast and fresh to all 50 states. A line of cookie gift baskets is available for virtually every occasion, including birthdays, get well, thank you,Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day, with cookies taking the shape of jack-o-lanterns, Christmas trees, holiday stars, hearts, shamrocks, and bunnies.

Custom, or personalized, cookies can be ordered in a variety of colors. A dozen Smiley Cookies start out at $11.99, plus shipping. Each gift order is backed by a 100 percent guarantee and all of their gourmet sugar cookies are nut free, kosher and trans fat-free.

It’s difficult to say if the cookies were pivotal in his win, but this is the second year he has passed out Smiley Cookies and emerged victorious. Last year, Schwartz used Smiley Cookies to campaign for freshman class treasurer. They were so well liked that he ordered twice as many during this year’s run for office.

“Politicians running for government positions in Washington, DC, or Maryland, could take a cue from Evan,” said Robyn Schwartz, Evan’s mother. “When he discovered the same fresh-baked Smiley Cookies available at Eat’n Park restaurants could be ordered online, he thought it would be a great way to get voters’ attention at school.”

Whether it is as a soccer snack, cheerleading snack or a snack for some other type of sport, selecting the best snacks for kids can be a challenge. It is important to take certain conditions under consideration when selecting the proper snack for the entire team. In this way, all children on the team will be able to enjoy the snack.

 

 

Food Allergies

When a child has a food allergy, the immune system treats a certain food which is normally benign as truly dangerous to the individual. Common food allergies include nuts, seafood, milk/dairy products, eggs, soy and wheat. Milk and dairy products may cause a problem due to lactose intolerance in certain individuals. Avoiding milk products can solve this problem when selecting that cheerleading snack for your child.

Nut free foods are important to take into consideration. A nut free snack can take the form of fruits and vegetables. Other common nut free foods which can be used are fruit roll-ups, cookies, pretzels, chips, crackers, jello and pudding. On a hot summer day, frozen snacks such as popsicles and ice cream may be the perfect nut free snack. When making a selection for snacks for kids, it is important to keep all allergies under consideration as well as any food restrictions as a result of a child’s religion.

 

 

Religious Food Restrictions

Different religious groups have different eating practices including food restrictions. One type of food restriction to take into consideration is the Jewish practice of kosher food restrictions. Foods have to be prepared a certain way and cannot contain pork or shellfish. Meat and dairy cannot be eaten at the same time. The best kosher snacks include fruits, vegetables, rice cakes, popcorn, certified kosher cookies and graham crackers.

 

Look for logos like this one from the Orthodox Union to insure that your snack will meet religious food restrictions.

Other Considerations

Another consideration for a soccer snack is if a child is vegetarian. In addition to avoiding meat, certain vegetarians do not eat eggs, dairy products or processed foods. There are varying levels of vegetarians so people who avoid meat products may eat eggs.

It may be helpful to consult with the parent of the child with food restrictions to see the types of snacks the child usually eats. Fruits and vegetables are often a good choice as a soccer snack for the entire team. Or do a google search for nut free snacks, or whatever particular allergy or food concern you are interested in. The selection may take some time but it will be well worth it to see that all the children are included and can enjoy the snack you bring.

Guess This Smiley and Win  a Dozen Smiley Cookies!

Parties are great! …Lots of friends and family spending time together to celebrate a special event or milestone for one of their own. Almost every party has a gift giving aspect. Whether there are gift exchanges, presents for one person, or a “Chinese gift grab” it can be difficult to make your gift stand out from the crowd.

 

While gift giving has become increasingly dull over the years, there are certain ways to spice it up and put more meaning and personality into every present you give. I’m talking about personalized wrapping paper!

 

I will now take you through the steps to make better presents, from the outside in!

 

1)    Decide how you would like to personalize your wrapping paper. You can use recycled goods (like newspaper), blank specialty papers that you can then customize, or you can have your personalized gift wrap professionally printed.

 

2)    Decide what you would like the theme of the wrap to be – it should be consistent with the type of gift you are giving. Is this going to be sentimental or funny? Reminiscent or goofy? It very much depends on the recipient of your gifts. You would definitely have a different look depending if you are presenting your gifts to a young child, best friend, co-worker, or mother in law.

 

3)    After deciding on your customization method and your theme its time to secure your materials.

  • Recycled paper is the easiest to acquire. Look for leftover newspaper or magazine. These will save trees, but can still give a first class look.
  • Specialty paper can be picked up from any local craft store, along with the art materials needed to customize it.
  • For a professionally personalized gift wrap – you should start looking at online stores. Search for the terms “custom wrapping paper” or “personalized wrapping paper” and you should find a number of different manufacturers that allow you to use your own pictures and greetings to customize a roll of gift wrap for any occasion! Prices start around $14.95 per roll (1 roll will usually wrap 3 medium size gifts).

*There not much more unique than a roll of custom wrapping paper covering a dozen customizable cookies!

Create your own customized cookie to make an incredible personalized gift that everyone will love!

4)      Give yourself a high five (just as long as no one is watching). You have used your creativity and now your gift is the star of the party. Be prepared for others to ask “where did this come from?”, “how did you make this?”, “can you teach me how to be so unique?”…and it will feel pretty good…!

 

Reasons for personalized gift wrap:

  • Makes gifts more meaningful
  • Can make up for presents where you “didn’t know what to get them”
  • Will make your gift stand out
  • It will be remembered for years to come
  • Saves trees in most cases (personalized gift wrap is usually saved and kept as a keepsake or it goes into a scrapbook or memory book)

In a world filled with delicious desserts, how is one ever to choose? Luckily for me, the great thing about  getting my degree online is that I can travel the world, eating exotic pastries all while finishing up college.

I have always had a major sweet tooth, and I have loved every second of jetting around the globe in search of the next great dessert. Here are a few of my favorite exotic desserts!

Cannoli – Originated in Sicily, Italy, a cannolo (singular) is a tube-shaped, fried pastry dough stuffed with a sweet, creamy filling. Often topped with a drizzle of chocolate or crushed pistachios, cannoli are wonderful finishes to any meal! I first tried these when I was in Italy, but I order them every time I go to my favorite local Italian restaurant.


Mango Sticky Rice – A traditional summer dessert from Thailand, mango sticky rice is a fabulous dish primarily comprised of sticky rice, mangos, sugar and creamy coconut milk. I ate this refreshing dessert on a vacation to the beaches of Thailand, and it brings me back every time I order it at a Thai restaurant.


Crème Brulee – This decadent dessert hails from France, and is made up of thick, creamy custard topped with caramelized sugar. Served in individual ramekins, crème brulee makes the perfect dinner party dessert. I love to make this for guests when they come over and they are always impressed.


Flan – Often referred to as crème caramel, flan is a creamy custard dish with a rich, complex caramel flavor. Slightly giggly, this dessert is slightly similar to crème brulee, but much different in texture. I love to eat this dish after a particularly spicy meal to cool off my mouth and soothe my stomach.


Baklava – Crunchy, sweet, nutty and gooey, baklava is a traditional Greek dessert that succeeds in winning me over every time. Featuring layers of flakey phyllo dough and nuts dripping in a chewy honey mixture, I ate my weight in Baklava as I toured through the Greek Islands last year.

 

Remember, just because you can’t pronounce or have never tried something doesn’t mean it won’t be delicious!
