The story behind our cakes

Amy Fouks, bakery category manager
Tuesday, May 20, 2014

We pride ourselves on the quality of our cakes and know they’re second to none! But why?

They’re filled with quality ingredients, from our exclusive cake mix that you won’t find in any other market to our signature buttercream frosting made with a special vanilla extract. Our cakes are made in small batches resulting in fresher products. And all our cakes are handmade, right down to measuring ingredients by hand to ensure you always get the perfect cake.

There’s only ONE Parmigiano-Reggiano. Widely regarded as one of, if not the best cheese in the world, it’s known as the “King of Cheese.” We’re delighted to be able to bring you this cheese from Italy as part of our Lunds & Byerlys private label!

The story behind our fresh citrus juices

The summer months bring out the best in fresh fruit. With our stores overflowing with sweet, irresistible flavors, it’s hard to ignore these healthy treats. One of my favorite things about summer is taking fresh fruit home every week to savor those distinct juices, which more often than not wind up dripping down my chin.

Lunds and Byerly’s Wild Rice Soup

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Our soup recipe originated in the early ‘80s in the Byerly’s St. Paul deli. It was produced in small batches and packaged in mason jars. Lunds also made a wild rice soup, albeit a slightly different recipe with both white and wild rice and chicken. A few years after Lunds and Byerly’s merged, we consolidated our wild rice soups and the Byerly’s version became standard in our delis.
