Tubby's Taste began in 2014 as a hobby that quickly turned into a passion and a business.
Growing up in Miami with my cake ladies I was surrounded by fruits and flavors that now serve as inspiration for Tubby's Taste’s boldly flavored Jamaican inspired cookies. I believe that there's something really special about seeing people who look like you doing something that informs you that you can do it too.
So one day after moving to Chicago after college I decided I was going to start baking from scratch! I thought this was something everyone could do— because of my cake ladies, but then my roommate said “girl, no! I burn things from a box! This is a talent!” So began my Tubby's Taste side hustle which I shortly learned could become a business.
After all, with my last name being Tubbs and my college nickname being “Tubby” the name had to be “Tubby's Taste” to show my stamp of approval!
