How we used our imagination!
What started as a charity bake sale by then 8 year-old Daniel and 5 year-old Eli has blossomed into a now 5-year family-of-love adventure, a Treat business based on passion and compassion. Treat House is on a mission to spark joy in the world, one hand-made sweet treat at a time. Reimagined crispy rice treats that take you nostalgia-back to your childhood, yet bring you current with sophisticated adult flavors. With a charitable mission to give back by Treating-it-forward. Inspiring adults and kids alike to treat themselves, and others less fortunate, with love.
Feel like a kid, again.

The idea for Treat House was inspired by a charitable bake sale that the Russell family had in 2011. The proceeds went to provide athletic equipment for impoverished children in Africa. Giving back to our greater community has always been key to Treat House’s mission. For the first year of business, Treat House donated 10 cents for every treat sold to the Food Bank of NY.
Starting in 2015 Treat House formed a partnership with the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. Treat House provides Treats to LLS’s many benefits. More meaningful however; each time our customers’ donations at our check out page cover the cost of shipping one package ($12), Treat House sends a 12 Pack of Treats to a low income sufferer of blood cancer. We take great pride in bringing some cheer to cancer sufferers who cannot even afford their medical co-pays or even transportation to their doctors.
The thank you letters that we receive are heart-warming and heart breaking at once. As we continue to grow, we will establish new and impactful charitable relationships that will retain the same spirit of the initial bake sale in 2011 that started it all.
