The Sweet Potato Sensations story starts begins with the marriage of Jeffery and Cassandra Thomas in 1976. At their first Thanksgiving together Jeffery pleaded to have sweet potatoes on the menu, just like his mom used to make. Cassandra, who did not like candied yams, created a recipe for sweet potato cookies to satisfy her husband’s sweet tooth. The cookies were a big hit! Thus, the recipe for Sweet Potato Sensations famous cookies was created.
Jeffery woke up in the middle of the night thinking, “Sweet Potato Sensations… best pies in the nation.” The name was born! In December of 1987, Sweet Potato Sensations became incorporated. The Thomases began selling their cookies at the Rocky Peanut Company. This was their official first customer.
