Treat yourself at this over-the-top sweet shop in Sikeston

It's good for your soul

We at Heartland Weekend don’t believe you really need a reason to treat yourself.

Nichole Cartmell recently discovered a restaurant in Sikeston, Missouri that follows that same line of thinking.

They call themselves Treats by ZsaZsa and Daphnes. Fitting, right?

“I always tell people because people will come in and be like I don’t really need this but, I’m like sweets are good for your soul so like if it tastes good, it’s good for you,” Kramer Johnson said.

Since late April, the shop has been making the area a little sweeter with cookies, cupcakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and more.

Sometimes they even combine them to make treats that are what you’d call extra.

But the real star of the show is the popcorn.

Johnson says her mom and several others grew up eating and serving up this coated popcorn.

It’s a nostalgic treat they wanted to share with the community.

“But it’s not like your typical popcorn,” Johnson said. “It’s completely coated in like the greatest sweet flavors. It’s awesome.”

According to these folks, the number 1 tip to perfect popcorn: butter.

Johnson said you can never have too much butter, just throw it in there.

You can get some for yourself, or a friend.

Treats by ZsaZsa and Daphne’s will even fix you up a gift basket of goodies for someone special.

Plan a visit the next time you’re in Sikeston.
