The goods are shipped in from New York, so the selection is limited. It’s also just a little area with goodies inside and then you get to pay for them at the cash area. So it’s an in-and-out thing, but we stayed way too long in there trying to figure out which ones I wanted to buy. I haven’t been to the NYC location, so I (literally) don’t know what I’m missing. (If you’re a seasoned vet, let me know which ones you like!)
I thought I’d do a quick review of each cookie so you guys know which ones to reach for. (Why yes…. I ate one of each…. for the blog, okay!! lol) I bought one of each thing they had and we have a big cookie tasting party! SO MUCH FUN AND OHHHH THE SUGAR HIGH.
First up is the Compost Cookie – this one has a reputation to uphold and… IT WAS AMAZING. People keep asking me – what’s in the compost cookie? My answer is always: everything! You can taste the salt, coffee (surprisingly refreshing), graham crackers, potato chips (weird but amaze) and the caramel bits. I highly recommend this one – you won’t be disappointed! [B+AB rating: 4.5/5]
This one caught my eye because of the name. I mean… could you go wrong?! Well apparently… you can. I wasn’t a fan of this one at all – I thought it was too sweet (I think it was the marshmallow). [B+AB rating: 1/5]
This is the only vegan and wheat-free cookie they had. It was surprisingly not gross like I thought it would be. I really like the coconut in it – love that texture – and I also liked the maple syrup. But is this a cookie I would have again? No… it just didn’t have that “Wow I must have another one” factor. [B+AB Rating: 2.5/5]
This one was surprisingly decadent! I thought it would be pretty simple – a sugar cookie with blueberries? But it was creamy! It’s hard to explain, but it just was. I am not afraid to say I ate this one all by myself (lol) [B+AB Rating: 5/5]
This is my absolute favourite cookie. The first time I went, I did not pick this one up and I instantly regretted it. So I went back and bought like 4 (I shared 2 of them, don’t worry.) The way it tastes reminds me of THIS Golden Sweet Corn brand from the Philippines. It is actually these “chips” in cookie form. It is surprisingly delicious (who would’ve thought a corn cookie would be so blissful). I love this so much that my goal is to recreate it for the Holidays! I will, of course, blog about it if I’m successful. [B+AB Rating: 5/5]
By the time I took a photo of these… the box looked like this. If that’s not a testament to how good these are, then I don’t know what to tell you. They are moist (ohhh baby) and so decadent. They’re like what cake pops would be if cake pops were Jesus. Only bad thing? They’re a bit pricey [B+AB Rating: 4.5/5]

Yes, I did not get a photo of the crack pie because… it was gone too fast. I literally could not stop everyone from eating it – not even for 10 seconds for a photo. (Probably because I joined in and didn’t try that hard, though…) But this lived up to its name… CRACK PIE. Like really… super addictive and we were ready to fight each other for a bite. I will also be trying to recreate this before the Holidays (just because a whole pie is almost $50!! Are you kidding me!), so I’ll let you guys know how that goes.
They have an AMAZING recipes + how to’s page that will definitely help me, so I suggest you check it out if you feel like recreating these, too!
Have you tried any of these goodies? If you have a favourite from the NYC location, let me know so I know which ones to look for when I’m there!
