Maya’s Cookies Launches 2023 Black History Month Collection

Enjoy this tasty tribute to Black and female excellence.

This Black History Month, Maya’s Cookies is unveiling a special collection of three cookies inspired by the legacy of Black women in the arts. From champagne to smoked peach jam to red velvet marbled cookies, this range includes a variety of flavors and will be sold both online (beginning today, January 24) and in-store (beginning February 1).

Hey there cookie lovers! Are you ready for the most delicious and meaningful treat of the year? Check out Maya’s Cookies’ 2023 Black History Month Collection! This year, Maya’s Cookies is paying homage to the arts and honoring the incredible contributions of Black women in literary arts, dance, the music industry, and beyond. Each cookie tells the stories of these changemakers and features ingredients from fellow Black-owned, woman-owned small businesses that we all love.

The Prodigy

Indulge in The Prodigy, a graceful cookie inspired by Misty Copeland, her mentor Raven Wilkinson, and all the trailblazing Black women making history in ballet and the dance arts. This one sparkles with flavors of bubbly champagne, fresh strawberries, and dazzling sparkle sugar. And the best part? The Prodigy features Demi-Sec Champagne from the Black-owned, woman-owned brand Stuyvesant Champagne.

The Chart-Topper

Enjoy a tribute to the Godmother of Soul, Patti Labelle, and her famous pies and cobblers with The Chart-Topper. This treat turns up the volume with a harmony of low-sugar Smoked Peach Jam, real peach pieces, and a cinnamon brown sugar crumble. The Smoked Peach Jam is sourced from Black-owned, Brooklyn-based Trade Street Jam Co.
