Mail Order Cookie Clash: Urban Cookies vs. Goosebumps
Shannon Armour One of each from Urban Cookies
We absolutely love cookies (who doesn't?) and we love cookies even more when they show up on our doorstep. Which is why we're super happy that the business of cookies by mail exists. And we're even more stoked that we have more than one bakery in town to deliver those cookies to us and our loved ones.
We already knew about Urban Cookies, Cookies from Home and Cookies in Bloom; then last month, the mail order cookie market acquired a new friend. They go by the name Goosebump Cookies and they're made by baker Debbie Paine from her nearly 40-year-old recipe.
But do these new cookies stand a chance against the fierce competition baked up by Brady Breese's Urban Cookies?
Let's find out.
In This Corner: Urban Cookies
Shannon Armour Urban Cookies' Oatmeal Raisin
The Set Up: Husband and wife team Shaun and Brady Breese have been putting smiles on cookie lovers' faces since 2005. All of their cookies are made using 100% natural ingredients and as many organic and locally sourced products as possible. If you don't have time to wait for them to show up on your door step, you can always stop by Urban Cookies' bakeshop on 7th Street and Highland and pick up one or a dozen of their fresh baked treats.
The Good: Urban Cookies has seven different cookies to choose from -- double chocolate with sea salt, snickerdoodle, milk chocolate, oatmeal raisin, dark chocolate walnut, pineapple coconut, and peanut butter. Each cookies is made using some of the best ingredients in town and the quality ingredients really shine through in the flavor and texture of each big, soft and chewy cookie.
The Bad: Hmmmm. These cookies are honestly some of the best we've ever had. The only flaw (aside from being a little on the pricey side) of these babies is that they are too good and we will literally eat the whole box if it's left in front of us. (I seriously ate four of them while I was writing this. Oops.)
