Good news! Life in Chicago just got a little sweeter, because fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Kathy Wakile, can now find her heavenly sweets at their local grocer. Kathy is introducing her new line of mouthwatering desserts, Indulge by Kathy Wakile, exclusively at Mariano’s.
The popular reality star and best selling cookbook author is branching out, and offering her specialty creations not only on her website, but in all 34 Mariano’s stores throughout the Chicagoland area.
“Indulge by Kathy Wakile is greatly inspired by my Italian heritage and upbringing,” said Kathy Wakile, Founder of Indulge by Kathy Wakile. “Given Mariano’s core values and diverse bakery offerings, it felt like a natural fit for me to partner with them for the launch of my retail products in stores. Chicago is one of the nation’s most diverse and influential culinary cities, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to introduce my product line in partnership with such a renowned company.”
Just in time for the holidays, Mariano’s will begin offering select Indulge products to feature in their 34 stores, becoming the first retailer to offer Wakile’s scrumptious creations. Beginning in December, shoppers can expect to find Wakile’s well-known and wildly popular cannolis, which are now available in a retail-ready Create-Your-Own Mini Cannoli Kit ($20), which is a flavorful and unique take on the traditional Italian Panettone ($15).
Wakile also has created a gluten-free range of delicious products, including Fudge Choco Brownies ($3) and Congo Bars ($3). Fans can look forward to Wakile’s Biscotti, specialty flavored coffees – including Cinnamon Crumble, Chocolate Raspberry and Butter Rum – and much more, next to hit retail stores.
Mariano’s takes pride in offering a standout shopping experience, along with a strong commitment to premium customer service. Mariano’s incorporates Chicagoland’s distinctive neighborhood culture into their merchandising, allowing customers to enjoy a truly unique foodie experience.
Kathy’s dessert cookbook venture, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet, has been a delectable success. The cookbook focuses on indulgent dessert recipes served in small portions, and book sales have been smashing. The cookbook hit #1 on Amazon’s dessert baking pre-order list, and has since landed on the Publisher’s Weekly bestsellers list. Make sure you get a copy in time for the holidays.
Congratulations to Kathy Wakile, and to all of you lucky readers in the Chicagoland area….indulge, and ENJOY!
