A dessert shop is offering free cookies to celebrate World Baking Day. 

Ben Hutton opened Crumbs in Bury St Edmunds in November 2022 and just over a year after the launch, relocated to open in the former SupaSnaps store in The Traverse.

The dessert shop sells loaded cheesecakes, giant cookies and traybakes inspired by all of the desserts Mr Hutton sold in the Covid lockdown from his other business Queens Bar and Grill.

To celebrate World Baking Day on May 19, Crumbs will be offering free cookies at the west Suffolk shop. 

The first 100 customers will be given a homemade cookie free of charge without having to buy anything else.

In an announcement Crumbs said: "Yes, that is right. 100 free cookies, no catch. To celebrate World Baking Day, we are giving back to you our lovely customers.

"What do you have to do? Just turn up!"

The first 100 people will receive one free M&M or milk chocolate cookie per person with the flavour chosen at random. 

The cookies will be given out on Sunday, May 19 at 10am.
