Day Five: Today’s giveaway is for a Petite Stony Brook Cookie Sampler from Stony Brook Cookie Company!
This Sampler includes 2 large cookies in each of these four varieties: Super Chocolate Chunk, Double Chocolate Pecan, Cherry Chocolate Coconut Jumble and Oatmeal Cranberry and White Chocolate.
I am so thrilled that I was able to review cookies from Stony Brook Cookie Company. I had been admiring their cookies on the web for quite some time, and each time the cookies were just calling my name – they looked just like homemade cookies, and I was curious if they tasted the same.
When I received my box from Stony Brook Cookie Company, I was extremely excited. I opened the outer box to discover a beautifully wrapped box with a ribbon around it. I opened this box to discover more elegance – tissue neatly folded over four individually wrapped bags of cookies. There was a cute little folded tag on each bag, that said what type of cookie it was, and on the inside a little information about Stony Brook Cookie Company, as well as an ingredient list. They also included instructions about storing them and/or freezing them. They even suggest microwaving the cookies for a few seconds, if desired, for that fresh out of the oven taste. On top of the bags of cookies was a little note that told me the day my cookies were baked. They were baked exactly two days before I received them – talk about fresh!
The excitement did not end there of course. I ran into the other room to show my husband, and we ripped open carefully opened the first bag – Super Chocolate Chunk “a classic, on the indulgent side”…..mmmmm. They tasted just like home baked cookies, and they were large too! That just thrills my husband and I to no end!
From the Stony Brook Cookie Company:
We use only the finest ingredients — local if available — including cage-free, antibiotic-free eggs from an Interlaken NY poultry farm, AA butter from a dairy cooperative of Central New York dairies, unbleached wheat flour from a local mill in Penn Yan NY, sulfite-free dried fruits from New York and Michigan, and chocolate made in Vermont. See our ingredients page for more information.
No preservatives, hydrogenated oils, trans fat, artificial flavors or colors are used in our cookies. Freshness and quality are our top priority — all of our cookies are baked to order and shipped on the same day.
Stony Brook Cookies are bagged by hand in biodegradable cellophane. Cellophane doesn’t impart a plastic flavor to the cookies.
Cookie gift boxes are made of 100% recycled post-consumer content, along with paper raffia (not plastic!) ribbon and water soluble inks. We also use biodegradable packing peanuts (made from potato starch) and recycled paper fill in our packing materials.
Throughout the day, and into the next, we continued sampling the rest of our heavenly cookies. We also received Cherry Chocolate Coconut Jumble (I actually caught my husband eating these late at night, with a big glass of milk – of course, I just HAD to join him!). The Double Chocolate Pecan cookies “the cookie for any self-respecting chocoholic” were delectable, with rich chocolate (but not overly sweet), and toasted pecans. The Oatmeal Cranberry and White Chocolate cookies are so unique. I do not recall seeing cranberries in a cookie before, but I love them. Dried cranberries work so well with white chocolate. I think these were my favorite (that’s easy to say now – I said that for each type I tried!). Last, but certainly not least, were the Stony Brook Chocolate Cherry Jumble “their signature cookie”. These cookies are rich and crumbly, made with dried cherries, organic coconut, tasted almonds and chocolate chips. Yum, yum, yum! I believe these were my husband’s favorite.
