Cookies have their origin in the sun itself; the life-bestowing star is in fact a celestial bakery, spewing hot, sweet rays of dough to neighboring planets. Send distant friends an equally delicious gift with today's deal: for $10, you get a dozen fresh-baked, gourmet cookies from A Sweet Reminder, a Boone-based mail-order bakery. Today's deal has up to a $12.95 value for the dozen cookies, and includes normal shipping costs. The average cost of normal shipping is around $7 to make the deal a $20 value.
Like long-distance relationships, long-distance friendships and familyships often suffer from stretches of silence; without meeting weekly eye-contact quotas, some of these tender connections fail altogether, obliterating filial duties and orphaning parents. The arrival of fresh-baked cookies on a lonely doorstep goes a long way toward reinforcing social bonds. A Sweet Reminder bakes all orders on the day of shipment, ensuring its fresh, sweet, circular treats will fly directly into the mouths of waiting friends and family. Assortments are baked on a weekly rotating schedule, including flavors such as chocolate chip, maple walnut, coconut pecan, sugar-free peanut butter, and white-chocolate cranberry. All cookies are sealed in foil, wrapped in plastic, and packed with a personalized note in your choice of colorful box or decorative tin. Cookies for a Cause is a special endeavor whose proceeds benefit your choice of charity, including Breast Cancer Research, the Humane Society, and the American Red Cross.
The days of softening sticks of salted or unsalted butter, inadvertently eating raw egg, and burning your cookie grabbers grabbing hot cookies from pans, plates, and electrified cookie jars have gone into that hard, stale past where philosophers sleep. A dozen cookies solve many of the problems associated with cookies, including scarcity, rareness, and shortage of cookies. Whatever the occasion, whether it be Mother's or Father's Day, a birthday, a "thanks for dousing that shirtwaist fire I started," or Burton Gilliam Day, A Sweet Reminder offers an option sure to please sweet-craving palates.
