…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!!).

    If I lived in NYC or anywhere less than my current 3 hours away, I’d venture to try your delicacies. So visually deelish I can only imagine their decadence live and in person…sigh. Right, so names.

    Brookie Cookie
    The Brooklyn Mixtape
    Brooklyn MacCherry
    Sloan from Brooklyn (how random, I know, but I love this name & this cookie strikes me as a Sloan)
    Miadine (after your lovely girls, gosh even weirder than the last)
    Brooklyn Brotha From Anotha Motha (I’m just entertaining myself at this point, pardon me)

    This appears to be going downhill so I’ll stop. Hopefully you got a good laugh, no?
