Not a big fan of. But I miss Three Brother’s Bakery. It’s near where my parents lived in Houston. It’s what bakery means to me. I even dated one of the brother’s daughters when I was in college (one date, I think—if I was a smarter boychick I would have married into that family).
When my parents moved to Ohio a few years ago I now had very little to take me back to Houston besides the bakery (and it is a long way to go for an onion board or coconut danish, however excellent they may be). It never occurred to me to look for their web page. A bakery isn’t something you can enter virtually.
Well, someone I knew from elementary school through high school emailed me, and I friended her on Facebook. And discovered she was a fan (Facebook fan) of Three Brothers (yes, they have a Facebook fan page!). And now I’m a fan too.
And they have a website, and you can order from it.

Robert – I’ve discovered you also can order BBQ from Texas. Haven’t done this myself yet.
I dunno. With barbecue you have to smell the smoke.
Instead of ordering food from Texas, you should come back home and eat it in the places where it was meant to be eaten.
Though I would point out that you can also order fruitcake from the Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana and have been able to do so for decades, way predating the Internet.
