Bombshell Treat Bar debuts delivery service: A new small-batch popsicle and dessert company has launched in Troy, offering delivery and online ordering starting Sept. 10.

One of the top flavors are the Summer in Traverse City pop, a vanilla popsicle with a Michigan cherry shell, candy caviar, white chocolate drizzle and glitter dust. They have dairy-free options, too.

New menu items at Better Health: This area market and café has new vegan and organic menu items, including an organic “whopper” made with Michigan, grass-fed beef, cheddar cheese, organic lettuce, onion, pickles, mayo and ketchup on a grilled, organic wheat bun. They also have flatbreads, a stuffed burger (vegan or meat) and açai bowls. Visit for locations.
