There’s something about cookies that remind us of home. Many of us grew up with homemade cookies to snack on, we continue to bake our favorites at home when there’s time, and even though we don’t always buy a package, we love walking through the cookie aisle at the grocery store looking at all of the different varieties.
So, if you’re craving cookies, but don’t have time to bake them on your own or don’t want to deal with the mess, the Yum Yum Shop in Wolfeboro, NH, offers homemade gingerbread cookies that can be ordered online. Our famous bake shop is a destination for both local residents and visitors alike who stop by to pick up some fresh donuts, pies, whoopie cakes, and more. One of our specialty items is our GingieBox. The box comes with:
- 24 heritage Gingerbread Man Cookies
- Two, 8-ounce jars of frosting
- A pastry decorating bag
Craving Gingerbread Cookies? Here Are Some Reasons to Order Them Online From Yum Yum Shop
Group activities at a birthday party is a great way to keep kids entertained and having fun. And our GingieBox will also help their creativity! When kids get to decorate their own gingerbread cookie, they can do it however they want! And there’s nothing better than being able to take a big bite out of the tasty creation after it’s finished.
If you have several holiday parties to attend, it can be challenging coming up with unique gifts for each host. When a bottle of wine or a container of popcorn just won’t work, an order of homemade cookies from a bake shop may be just the thing you need! It’s delicious, can easily be handed out to guests, and gingerbread cookies are the perfect holiday treat.
Rather than watching a Friday night movie or just sitting around with everyone glued to their smartphone or computer, why not get everyone together around the table to decorate some gingerbread cookies? You can even turn it into a competition to see who can create the most picturesque gingerbread man, or who can be the most creative!
Quick and Easy
One of the most frustrating things about craving cookies is that you have to gather all of the ingredients, mix it all together (probably making a mess of the countertop), bake each tray, and clean everything up. When all you want to do, or have time for, is place an order online, then the Yum Yum Shop makes it easy! Depending on how far you live from our Wolfeboro bake shop, orders are shipped via USPS and typically take one to three business days.

Gingerbread cookies have been around for hundreds of years, filling up stomachs and providing tasty treats and fun activities for kids around the world. In 1948 in Wolfeboro, NH, gingerbread cookies transformed our little town when Grandma Lotte opened Yum Yum Shop in the former Hutchins Hat Shoppe. Located near the bridge on North Main Street, our bake shop has been baking up delicious treats ever since and we hope to always play a role in the success of Wolfeboro.
Made with basic ingredients – flour, molasses, egg, brown sugar, and spices – gingerbread cookies are filled with flavor and are perfect for that cold winter day when you want to fill up your home with the sweet, savory smells of clove, allspice, and cinnamon. At the Yum Yum Shop, we wanted to help families across the country share in this delicious experience, and this has been our mission since we first opened.
The Yum Yum Shop’s History
Like we said above, the Yum Yum Shop opened in 1948. We opened during a time when the country was just starting to get back on its feet after the end of WWII. We had a delicious recipe that we wanted to share with the town, so we dove right in and started whipping up batches of our now famous gingerbread and other gourmet cookies, puff pastries, donuts, homemade pies, and more
Nearly 30 years later, the town decided that it wanted more of our bake shop and the desserts we offered, so we expanded across the street into the Gulf gas station. But don’t worry, the building underwent a face lift and was upgraded to match the colonial town’s architectural style. When you visit our Wolfeboro shop today, you wouldn’t recognize it as a gas station at all.
Grandma Lotte’s son, Lou, took over the shop in 1993 and the Yum Yum Shop soon became known as the area’s preeminent bakery. Local residents and tourists who visit throughout the year (because New Hampshire is truly gorgeous year-round), could visit and taste the magic that was cooked up in our ovens.
As word spread of our tasty cookies, pies, and donuts, the Yum Yum Shop expanded again. This time, we opened up more space and added on a gift shop and made room for a 44-seat restaurant and cafe.
Lou Kelly retired in 2010 due to illness, but that didn’t stop us from baking! Lou’s son, Peter, took over the shop.
With much sadness, when Lou Kelly passed away, the Yum Yum Shop announced that it would close. However, the residents of the town began a campaign to keep it open. People from around the area shared memories and stories of their experiences with the bake shop. The local news even picked up the story.
Spencer and Ashley Samuelian purchased the Yum Yum Shop in 2018. Grandma Lotte’s grandson, Peter Kelly, returned to run the shop.
The Yum Yum Shop officially reopened on July 2, 2018, to crowds of people who couldn’t wait to help support a local, historic bakery.
Since then, the Yum Yum Shop has been offering residents and visitors delicious baked goods, including gingerbread cookies, pies, donuts, cakes, muffins, whoopie pies, puff pastries, and more! If this hasn’t made your mouth water, we’re not sure what would!
