…in naming these cookies. I think we asked for suggestions last year when we first introduced them and believe it or not, we still haven’t properly named them. Ok, so we’re lame, but we’re not exactly great at naming cookies. Look at our shop – everything’s just named after what’s in them. I mean, “Coconut Five Spice White Chocolate Cookies”? What kind of long-winded name is that? Lame. (edit: some people got confused. We’re not trying to rename our Coconut cookies, which is in fact named that ridiculously long name, but the cookies in the photos – see ingredients below).

So what’s in these cookies? Cocoa nibs, macadamia nuts, dried cherries, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and oatmeal. So far, they’re only available at markets and fleas and they usually sell out. They’re big and satisfying and different than all the smaller, more refined cookies that we sell online, but I’ll tell you what. If you come up with a name that we like, we’ll mail you half a dozen of these cookies, but I can’t promise that the packaging is going to be pretty. We haven’t figured that out yet (don’t worry, we won’t send them in, like, a Tupperware container or a Ziplock bag or anything). They really are best fresh, but we’ve been testing the shelf life and we may be able to ship them. You can be our guinea pig. And if there isn’t a name that catches our eye, we’ll pick a random comment and we’ll send you cookies anyway.

You have until Friday Thursday 1pm EST. Bonus points for sticking “Brooklyn” in the name, though by no means are we totally set on that.
Ok, go (and oh, right….I was reminded, we can only ship to the US, especially these cookies. Sorry!!).

    Keks is the funny name for cookies in german.

  • Meghann P. March 8, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    Honestly, I love how you’ve been naming the cookies. I know exactly what to expect from the cookie, no surprises, no researching what’s in them. It’s simple, straightforward, and totally flows with the vibe you’ve set for your company. You tell it like it is.

    But, a few names just in case:

    Big Brooklyn Cookies
    Trail Mix Cookies
    Time Zone Cookies (you pulled ingredients from multiple time zones and put them in the cookies)
    Double Chocolate Oatmeal Nibbles
    Hunky Chunkies
    Double Chocolate Cherry Nut and Oats
    Nut’n but Oats and a Bunch of Other Yummy Things
    Not Your Grandmother’s Oatmeal Cookies
    mAcademic Cookies (b/c eating them will make you smarter)
    Brooklyn Luxe

    (I’m not eligible for cookies but this was just too fun to pass up!)

  • tschitschi March 9, 2011 at 7:37 am

    Puh, it’s hard to see what hasn’t been said yet 🙂
    I think you should put a ’round’ in there somewhere:
    the roundabout cookie, or the round chocolate chip, or maybe best eaten round.
    Or the chocolate oat cookie hook.
    Of all the other suggestions so far my favourite is Brooklyn Bites – nice and simple!
