Many towns in texas have “a” bakery. A bakery that’s been part of the town fabric for many decades. A bakery that’s made it’s name for something – quite frequently it’s fruitcakes in Texas. The Slaton Bakery has its own fruitcake. But more than likely, it made its name with vanilla wafers. Their vanilla wafers and ginger snaps are available all across Texas – even at the HEB stores!! They are worth it! The Slaton Bakery was the first to produce sliced hamburger buns and hot dog buns in Texas.
