…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!!).

    Perhaps as lame as your naming conventions, because it describes the place (Brooklyn), and the main ingredient (oatmeal) – but in Dutch! Brooklyn is thought to be derived from Dutch (“broken land”). It’s memorable, trademarkable, has good strong consonant sounds while still being pronouncable, is not overly complicated, and some people will even be able to spell it. And it’s kinda hipster in a nerdy way.
    You know where to send the cookies 🙂

    My husband makes a version of this cookie and they are my favorites! We call them “Those really great oatmeal cookies”. So, how about “Those really great Brooklyn oatmeal cookies”? Oh, long winded? Yeah. Anyway, here’s hoping you figure out how to ship them, because I’d certainly buy them under any (long winded) name!

  • Lisa March 7, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    There have been quite a few names suggested so far, so I will vote for “Brooklyn Bites” or “Brooklyn Bombs”…or if you wanted a longer name – “Brooklyn Choco-cherry Bombs”. Hope you add these to your online store soon, I would love some!

    i really liked the suggestion of king’s cookies. i make something similar that i call “little bit of everything cookies” (or “kitchen sink cookies”).

    what about:
    cyclone cookies or brooklyn cyclones (nod to coney island, and the fact that they’ve gathered everything up)
