A friend in Chicago told Mitzvah Market about Cookies By Joey and had a box shipped to us for a tasting.
Their beautifully wrapped box arrived and we truly have never tasted a cookie like this!
We now understand why they have been selected to be included in the Academy Award Nominee gift bag for this year’s 83rd annual OSCAR® ceremony on February 27, 2011.
Cookies by Joey was founded in 2008 by Chicago native Joanne Sherman, affectionately known as “Joey.” An 18-year-old single mom in 1988, Joey always baked from scratch for her son which led to the creation of her first signature cookie flavor, “Classic Chocolate Chip.”
Now her other cookie flavors include Chewy Chocolate Toffee, Chocolate Almond Crunch, Decadent Dark Chocolate, Snikerdoodle Sensation, White Chocolate Brownie Bliss, Chocolate Peanut Butter Passion and Sweet Korie Leigh Sugar.
Of course we had to try all of them and each one was more decadent than the next! They ship anywhere around the country and donate a portion of their profits to Food For Orphans.
We think this makes a terrific favor or ending to any Mitzvah! If you want to be eating what this year’s Oscar nominees will be snacking on, visit Cookies By Joey for more information.
