A Black Hills Goodie for Dad

For a lot of dads, sacrificing for their families is like breathing. Without hesitation, so many dads chose to put their needs last on a daily basis. How many diapers have been changed during a playoff game? How many final cookies have been given away to a wide-eyed son or daughter? How many hours of “Bluey” have played on that beautiful 75 inch TV screen?

June 19th is Father’s Day — a day to recognize those selfless dads who give, give, and give some more and never ask for anything in return.

This year, take some time to hunt down a bona fide Black Hills treat for dad. He deserves it. Here’s some options that will get dad drooling — and they all offer military discounts.

Crumbl Cookies in Rapid City offers creative cookies that are both delicious and visually stunning. Flavors rotate weekly, so there’s something new to discover with each visit. Give the dads in your life a chance to experience a cookie work of art. Let him dig into one of Crumbl’s famous pink boxes of cookies.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is located in downtown Rapid City. These handcrafted chocolate creations are sure to wow dad. Caramel apples and fudge are made in store and are just waiting for dad to sink his teeth into.

Is dad a cupcake guy or is he more into the whole darn cake? Well, at Star Spangled Batter he won’t have to choose. Pick from a variety of cupcakes from chunky monkey to carrots and cream or order a custom cake that could literally have dad’s name all over it.

Maybe dad is a coffee connoisseur. Make a stop at one of the three outstanding coffee houses in downtown Rapid, Pure Bean, Essence of Coffee, or Harriet and Oak. Bring home a bag of freshly roasted beans for dad or a cool new piece of coffee gear. Better yet, grab dad and take him downtown to enjoy a latte or a cortado over a great conversation.

Father’s Day is a few days away from the official start of summer. Go get dad something to cool off with by getting him a smoothie from Tropical Smoothie Cafe. With two locations in Rapid City, it couldn’t be easier to get dad a refreshing, healthy smoothie.

Give dad the ultimate truffle experience: Chubby Chipmunk. Venture out to Deadwood and get these delectable truffles straight from the shop or visit the Rapid City location located in the lobby of the Hotel Alex Johnson. These chocolate treats are definitely something to write home about.

Dad will surely appreciate one (or two) of these delectable treats. But remember, the best gift this Father’s Day won’t be one of these Black Hills goodies — it’ll be the people he’s sharing them with.
