Allow me to interrupt your day to bring you this very important, very delicious public service announcement: There’s now a way to devour uncooked cookie dough without fearing you’ll get salmonella.

To this day, I’m still guilty of scooping cookie dough straight out of the bowl before I put a batch of cookies in the oven, which is always followed by immediate regret and panic that I may get salmonella … again. It happened to me once, and it was not enjoyable. BUT, I was recently introduced to Unbakeables, cookie dough bites meant to be eaten uncooked (they’re egg-free), with extra toppings to sweeten the deal. I’m pretty sure they could revolutionize kids’ birthday parties everywhere, forever. Keep reading »

7 Philosophical Questions We Have About The Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shot

Dominique Ansel, creator of the beloved/maligned/notorious/famous croissant-donut hybrid, the cronut, will officially debut his newest creation this weekend at SXSW in Austin, and it’s a doozy: the chocolate chip cookie milk shot. What is it? Exactly what it sounds like: a sweet, crispy shot glass made of a chocolate chip cookie, filled with cold milk. This new dessert brings up many questions, some practical, some philosophical. Here are 7 of them: Keep reading »

Colorado Girl Scouts Put The Kibosh On Selling Cookies Outside Of Pot Shops

girl scout cookies

Last week, clever California Girl Scout made bank after she set up shop outside of a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. The enterprising 13-year-old sold 117 boxes in two hours, both to neighbors and customers of the cannabis club. Tragically, Girl Scouts in Colorado won’t have a similar circumstance to exploit — even though their state recently legalized marijuana — because they want kiddies to stay away from the pot clubs. In a statement on their Facebook page, the Girl Scouts of Colorado warned scouts that cookie sales are not permitted outside “adult establishments,” which includes pot dispensaries. Strip clubs, bars, liquor stores and casinos as also verboten. “We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” they wrote. [I wonder if they know that there is apparently a strain of marijuana named after their delectable treats? -- Amelia] Keep reading »

Girl Scout Nearly Doubles Her Cookie Sales By Setting Up Shop Outside A Cannabis Club

Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei had been doing pretty well selling Thin Mints and Samoas outside grocery stores around San Francisco, but she had a feeling she could do better with a more targeted marketing strategy. So she did what any intrepid young businesswoman would do: she set up a cookie table on the sidewalk in front of The Green Cross, a cannabis club. As you might have guessed, Lei’s strategy paid off, big time. She sold 117 boxes in two hours. “It’s no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant, so it’s not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them,” Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross, told NBC News. “But it wasn’t just patients; staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success.” The clinic has invited Lei back to sell cookies this weekend, where she’s sure to shatter sales records. Never underestimate the power of the munchies. [NBC]

When I was eight, pretty much all I cared about in life was My Garbage Pail Kids collection and how I could get my hands on more Big Stuff Oreos. I was allowed to have one every day with lunch, which was the equivalent of about four regular Oreos, but still, that wasn’t enough for me. In my mission to get more Big Stuffs, I befriended a girl in the neighborhood because her mom always kept them in the house. We had nothing else in common besides our love of the giant, creme filled cookies. It was a social sacrifice I was willing to make. Clearly, if I had to choose, I was, and still am, a creme over cookie person — though as Oreo is reminding us with their newest campaign, there is no wrong answer. (Check out their new site — and declare your loyalty — here.)

Anyway, when they discontinued the Big Stuffs in 1991, and I had to revert to eating a fistful of Double Stuff Oreos, I’ll admit, I went through a period of mourning. I still hold out hope that they’ll bring them back. I even joined the Facebook group in support. It’s OK to dream. But until then, I’ve been busy concocting some other kinds of Oreo inventions that would make me just as happy as the return of Big Stuffs. Maybe. Keep reading »

Hate love? So does Grumpy Cat. Which is why she’s the perfect anti-ambassador for Valentine’s Day. I mean, right now, Grumpy Cat is probably organizing her V-Day plan of attack, which likely involves squirelling away into a pile of litter while everyone else is professing their adoration. These Grumpy Cat cookies are made by Whipped Bake Shop in Philadelphia, and each one is lovingly (hatefully?) packaged with the phrases “Love stinks,” “Overrated” and “Dislike.” Whipped also serves up sugar cookies shaped like bacon and eggs, and a “horny for you” set, featuring a tricerotops and a unicorn. And because they’re total pervs, there’s even a “Mustache Rides, Admit 1″ cookie set. [Whipped Bake Shop, $28] Keep reading »
