How to Get Free Organic Chocolate Chip Cookies
It's hard to find a person out there who doesn't like cookies. And it's even harder to find someone who will turn down a free one. So what if I tell you that over the next few days at several Los Angeles-area Whole Foods Markets you can get yourself a free sample of an organic Crummy Brothers Chocolate Chip cookie? I think you just might say "Hell yes!"
So what's the deal with Crummy Brothers' cookies? Well, they bill their four varieties of chocolate chip cookes as "a decidedly grown-up delicacy - with depth, character, and the highest quality organic ingredients" and they stand behind their Crummy Credo--that their cookies all live up to the Three S's test. The Three s's are See, Smell, and Savor--three things you definitely want your cookie to exemplify, no? Anyhow, they are super excited to be getting their cookies on the shelves of Whole Foods Markets, and, ideally, into your stomachs.
But the first stop on the stomach-bound journey is the mouth; you're probably wondering how they taste, right? We were lucky enough to have some sneak peaks (and nibbles!) of all four flavors: Original, Chocolate, Lemon Ginger, and Orange Blossom. My personal favorites are the citrus ones; the Lemon Ginger smells fantastic, and the ginger brings a spicy finish to each bite. The Orange Blossom has a heady, almost liquer-like fragrance (as does the Chocolate one) but has a nice balance of fruit and chocolate. I've always been a sucker for orange and chocolate mixed, though; am I the only person who misses Starbucks' Mocha Valencia? Mmmm. And while those two are my top picks, the other two offerings are still, delish, especially when dunked quickly into a cup of coffee. The chocolate is noticeably more complex and flavorful than your run of the mill store-bought cookie, and the cookies have a crunchy texture that doesn't veer off into the land of too-hard-to-bite into.
Okay, but seriously...we're just dangling the carrot--uh, cookie, I mean--here. If you're making the grocery rounds at a Whole Foods in the next week, keep your eye out for the nice folks at Crummy Brothers. A full list of stores and dates follows after the jump.
And, yes...the brothers' last name really is Crummy!
