Posted on Jun 24, 2016. 0 comments


From 6-9 p.m. on June 24th, Kizito Cookies will be taking us back in time with the lowest cookie prices sense 1987. Elizabeth will be out in front of her bakery selling her famous cookies at the original price of 2 cookies for a dollar from the original street vendor cart that started it all. Much has changed since that time, but 1987 will always be remembered as a great year for Kizitos. In case you may have forgotten, or maybe were too young to remember, here are the events in pop culture that made ‘87 unforgettable.

The Basics

-  Gas was .95 cents

-  Average rent was $395

-  Janet Jacksons album “Control” was the #1 album of the year

-  “Three Men and a Baby” was the top grossing film at the box office, coming in at $167,780,960 and over 42 million tickets sold

In 1987 when Elizabeth started Kizitos Cookies, it consisted of her, an old bar cart that was transformed into a vendors cart, and her son. As time has passed, Elizabeth looked back through the years to see all the love and continued support from the Louisville community, and has loved every minute of her living the American dream. Elizabeth went from selling cookies on the streets to make some extra cash, to being a local favorite. Come out and celebrate with us as we throw it back to ’87.
