Do you remember the last cookie you ate? Did you down it with a glass of milk? Was it crumbly? We all have different preferences when it comes to food, but one thing’s for sure- you just can’t turn down a good cookie.

Cookies come in different sizes and flavors. Some might have raisins in them, and others may have all sorts of weird ingredients. Well, they make pineapple cookies. Yeah, that’s a thing. But hey, if you give us a cookie we’ll still munch on it! What do we really know about this sweet and irresistible snack, though?

The word Cookie came from the Danish word “Koekje,” meaning “little cake”. They were first made over 1400 years ago, right when sugar became a thing. Next time you see a nice little chocolate cookie, you have artisan bakers from a millennium and a half ago to thank.

Today, we have thousands of cookies in the market. How do we find out which ones are best? We tried a few cookies out so you won’t have to go through the pain of eating them. By pain, we mean guilt. Sweet, sweet guilt.

Cookie Fairy Choco Chip Cookie

A chocolate chip cookie is an instant classic. These little dudes pair well with most things, but are best served with a glass of milk. What makes Cookie Fairy’s Choco Chip Cookie different is how they cram so much flavor into their relatively small size.

You can easily keep popping these into your mouth without realizing you’ve gone through an entire box. Need a snack for that morning commute? Anything goes. Need a snack that instantly makes for a brighter day? Bring a bag of Cookie Fairy’s Choco Chip Cookie with you to munch on.

But don’t be surprised if the person sitting next to you on the jeep asks you for some! Uh, well, actually you probably should be surprised. That’s kind of weird.

Delightful Catherine’s Cakes & Pies: Salted Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

We’re sure you love going nuts on a good, nutty cookie. We get you. There’s something about that extra texture and complexity. That’s what we love about Delightful Catherine’s Salted Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies. We love a great chocolate chip cookie but walnuts make for whole new cookie munching experience.

These cookies have just the right amount of sweetness and crunch to it. Be careful though, these are quite addicting so if you’re trying to get that beach bod, this might ruin your diet. But if you really can’t help yourself, we won’t really blame you.

Body positive, all the way. Blame the patriarchy’s imposition of unrealistic beauty standards. Cookies are rad as hell.

Cookies are always a great snack. Unlike cakes, you can take it in a bag and eat it anywhere. Unless you don’t mind eating a slice of cake while walking or taking the jeep to work then go ahead. We’ve had a lot of decent cookies in the past but these ones really blew our minds.

 Go ahead and trust us on this one. Get some milk while you're at it.
