Delicious and huge muffins that are somewhere in the spectrum between muffins and cupcakes! Love them, always stop here when I am in the area to pick up a half dozen. They have seasonal specials as well as old favorites such as gingerbread, carrot cake, strawberry shortcake, blueberry raspberry, and more.

Their gingerbread muffins are to die for! Need I say more except that they have other flavors which are just as good!

Great muffins. Rasberry-Blueberry is a favorite in our household. The Gingerbread muffin comes in second. A perfect way to start a Sunday morning.

The muffins are wonderful. Especially like the gingerbread and lemon poppy. My husband loves blueberry. Gingerbread men and sugar cookies are great

Huge muffins stuffed with creme and fruit with many flavors to choose from. Recommend strawberry shortcake and gingerbread. Lemon poppy good with filling. Coffee strong bold blend. Like bringing these to special events like dinner parties, birthday and outdoor BBQs. Only eat one after walking Lake Q!

I've been visiting The Gingerbread Construction Company since the mid '90's. The quality of the product is consistent and always delicious. The gingerbread houses make a thoughtful Christmas gift.
