Pix Pâtisserie List
Peeps may be a divisive holiday treat due to their cloying sweetness, but the lauded Pix Pâtisserie has concocted its own scratch-made vanilla version that looks to be far more palatable than the original, available for preorder (limited quantities will also be stocked in the 24-hour Pix-O-Matic vending machine). They've also put their unique spin on Kinder Eggs, made with "better chocolate and cooler toys."

Zuckercreme List
The bakery pop-up Bubblegum Bakery will sling treats like rhubarb and pistachio maritozzi, chocolate nest pies, lemon and olive oil layer cakes, and frosted cookie sandwiches at the Montavilla cafe and market.
