Ruthie's cookies were created in Ruth's smokehouse-delicatessen-espresso shop Back to the Best, Inc. located in Reedsport Oregon in 2001, where she sold old family recipes like smoked salmon, and jerky (Check out this review!), and served a variety of her creations, from mustards to breakfast cookies.

Ruthie's breakfast cookies came to existence after Ruth received a request from one of her regular customers, owner of The Myrtlewood Gallery in Reedsport for a healthy breakfast alternative so he could continue to eat good even when he was in a hurry. Apparently, he picked the right person, because Ruth went into the kitchen, and when she came out, Ruthie's cashew raisin breakfast cookie came out with her.

Many people tire of the usual bagel/muffin choices offered by most shops, sometimes avoiding them completely, and because of that, the cookies quickly became a hit. As cookie sales rose in both of her Back to the Best shops, customer compliments did too, and with requests from other local companies to carry her cookies, she decided to hit the road, and bring these cookies to more and more shops eventually creating a delivery route of approximately 600 miles from the central oregon coast, over to Interstate-5.

Ruthie's, LLC. was started by Ruth, and Dustin Dibala (mom and son) in September of 2006. From the start, our goal has been to create delicious products with the highest quality whole food ingredients to give customers an alternative to the highly refined products served in so many places today. Since our humble beginnings, customer support has grown, and so has our company. We now deliver to nearly 150 companies located in Oregon, and continue to reach a larger market. It is our hope that people from coast to coast will enjoy our delicious healthy products for many years to come.

Happy Eating,

Dustin Dibala
