Our Story

My mom, Laura, and I own Susansnaps – the only gourmet gingersnap cookie company. One bite into our delightfully delicious gingersnaps and it’s love at first bite. I know it seems a bit crazy having a company based solely on gingersnaps, but so is the story how we got started.

Susansnaps are a labor of love that were developed after my mom watched my Dad and me, Susan (named for my Aunt Susan who died from cancer at 28) undergo chemo within the same year. Ginger is a natural stomach soother and cookies always have a way to bring smiles, so through my mom’s small baking company, she created the ultimate gingersnap recipe. While my mom perfected her snaps, I designed the logos and packaging. As the cookies were becoming popular, my mom coined them “Susansnaps” in memory of her sister, Sue (who died from Hodgkin’s) and in honor of me (who beat Hodgkin’s at 22). What started as a little idea to bake a few snaps has turned into a business. Today, my mom and I work side by side running Susansnaps. We bake the most delicious gourmet gingersnaps in five fabulous flavors, ship nationwide, have a charming retail shop and bakery in Atlanta, and give back through our foundation for cancer patient gifts. As we say, “Give a Snap…See a Smile!”

Our gingersnaps are filled with deep, dark molasses, the perfect blend of spices, and they’re topped in sparkling, sugar crystals giving you just the right snap that keeps you wanting more. In taking one little cookie and growing it into a company, we continue to pride ourselves in our attention to detail. To this day, every cookie is hand-sprinkled with sugar, every bow is hand tied, every label hand placed, and every gift hand packed. Our scrumptious cookies, fancy packaging, and sweet story make Susansnaps uniquely one-of-a-kind!

Susansnaps has been nationally recognized and most notably featured on The Today Show, CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, CNN and seen in Redbook, O Magazine, and Family Circle.
