Why is Raising Cane’s one of our favorite places to go for chicken fingers?

  • The freshly squeezed natural lemonade
  • The Cole Slaw is sooooo yummy
  • You will enjoy crispy, never frozen, and yummy chicken fingers made with the part of the chicken breast.
  • The homemade sauce!

5 REASONS TO LOVE CC’S SWEETS

by esmeaceves

ccswets1-960x1276.jpg

A place you to get one of the best cookies, macaroons, brownies and cupcakes in McAllen.

Located in the heart of McAllen, a cute place to get pastries made with love is one of favorite places to visit.

After the first bite in my banana nut muffin I was amazed. This was not your typical commercial muffin filled with artificial banana flavor syrup. They were real banana bites! After my first visit, six years ago, I keep coming back at least once a month, ok maybe is once a week, the point is after all these years, CC’S SWEETS AND TREATS is one of my favorite local places to get my pastries and cupcakes in mcallen.

These are the reasons why we always will come back to our cupcake heaven:

1. THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Not too sweet and not too to bland, their cookies have the  perfect combination between chocolate chips and butter. Remember to try their “kitchen sink” cookies, they have potato chips, chocolate chips, nuts, and other yummy toppings which I cannot remember right now. Oh! the perfection…

2. THEIR UNIQUE MACAROONS AND THEIR YUMMY FLAVORS

My favorite are Nutella and Pistachio Macaroons. They are a must! Your CC’s sweet experience is incomplete if you are missing the taste of their macaroons.

4. THEIR SPECIAL EVENTS

From their crazy shakes events to the unicorn day or mermaid day. They always have me on my toes wondering what their latest yummy creation is going to be.
