My daughter and I were excited to get the chance to review a dozen smiley cookies.
About Smiley Cookie:
It started as a half-baked idea more than 20 years ago — a smiley cookie as the vehicle to communicate the ethos of a restaurant — Eat’n Park, the Place for Smiles. Soon our cookie became not just the signifier of a delightful family dining experience, but a symbol of commitment to community and charitable giving, indeed, the mascot of the company. (Who knew a six-foot walking sugar cookie would have such draw. You have to be cracking a smile by now!)
Today, every child that dines at Eat’n Park receives the surprise of a buttery, rich, delicious smiley cookie, totaling more than 1 million free cookie treats each year. Every day, our cookies are distributed to community, charity and fundraising events. Every year, more than 200,000 smiling cookies are donated to local non-profit organizations. That’s a lot to smile about.
All of their cookies are peanut free and are made in a peanut free facility. Smiley Cookie has a wide selection of items including holiday cookies, coffee, chocolate and gift baskets. They even have the option to create your own cookies.
I love how these cookies arrived. They came in a plastic clam shell case, inside of a smiley cookie box and shipped in another box along with bubble wrap to insure no cookies are damaged during shipment. I am sorry to say that one cookie did arrive broken though. These sugar cookies were huge(about 4 inches). Initially I thought that they might be dry as sometimes sugar cookies can be quite dry. These were not at all dry. Even though they had icing on them, they were not overwhelmingly sweet. I liked that because I don't like feeling sick after eating cookies that are too sickening sweet. With the second cookie I tasted, I put it in the microwave(as per some tips that came with the cookies) to see what it would taste like. It came out all warm and tasted like it had just been baked! Due to the size of these, I feel one is definitely more than enough for a serving. My daughter and I have since shared a few because I feel a whole one is too much for her at one time. My daughter loves these cookies as well. She loves that they have a smile on them! They do bring a smile to your face when you go to grab one!
Overall, these cookies are definitely yummy in my book. I would definitely purchase them again, especially around the holidays so I could check out the holiday cookies they offer. I also want to check out creating my own cookies with my daughter some day! It would be a neat little project to do with a child and then seeing them when they arrive!
