It’s easy to want to talk about food that stretches the limits. The biggest this or that usually creates waves… whether or not it’s especially the tastiest of anything. Yet sometimes large food deserves notice.

- KEEP IN MIND: That's a cafeteria-style tray
That’s the case at Craig's Family Bakery in Van Buren, where the large doughnuts have caught my attention… and the tiny gingersnaps have stolen my heart.
And when you go to order one, if you mention they’ll cover it in chocolate for you — they aren’t kidding. Takes them just a minute or so to drizzle a thick chocolate glaze on top.
They have regular doughnuts, Long Johns, sweet rolls, cookies and such. And then there’s something stranger. See, Craig's Family Bakery could be known for the big stuff, but they also offer tiny versions of this and that. Such as the tiny yet tasty two-bite cinnamon rolls, maybe two inches across and just as tasty as a full sized one. They are decadently good.
You'll find Craig's Family Bakery at 805 Fayetteville Road on top of the big hill in Van Buren. It's open 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, until 2 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday. (479) 471-8800. They also have a Facebook page.
