Flaky Not Flaky introduces sconuts to Atlanta

First there were doughnuts, then cronuts, and now . . . sconuts? Husband-and-wife team Miguel and Anna Caraballo invented this sweet fluffy treat as a happy mistake. Owners of Flaky Not Flaky bakery and chocolates, they were intent on developing a less dense and crumbly scone recipe. What they came up with is a cute name for a product that sounds like a gimmick but is quite tasty.

In 1974, Hank Aaron broke the most hallowed record in baseball. I can still hear the echo.

It was 50 years ago this month—April 8, 1974—that Henry Aaron hit his 715th career home run off pitcher Al Downing in Atlanta, breaking Ruth’s 39-year record.
