Ever heard of gourmet cookies? YVR Cookie offers the original jumbo gourmet cookie and they aim to put an end to sad cookies. So, what makes them unique? Well, they make stuffed cookies! Give them a few seconds in the microwave and BAM…you got a satisfying warm cookie with a gooey filling now. It’s just like they were out of the oven!
Since they don’t offer single cookies – you’re best to grab their box of 6 and try a variety of their standard and seasonal flavours. If you’re a chocolate lover, their Chocolate Chunk will do the trick. It’s basically a leveled-up chocolate chip cookie.
And if you’re a fan of something that will wow your tastebuds, go for the Cookie Butter Skor (infused with cookie butter? oh yes!) and the Salted Caramel Mocha.
