The greatest tragedy behind the fall of the Colossus of Rhodes was that despite its overwhelming stature and imposing demeanor, the Colossus never learned how to read. Fight food illiteracy with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of treats at Eileen’s Colossal Cookies in Lawrence.
Each morning, Eileen’s team of bakers constructs fully formed confectionary feasts from scratch out of primordial balls of fresh cookie dough. Guests can engineer the dessert DNA for their perfectly crisped disks from 12 classic flavors, including oatmeal scotchie, peanut butter chocolate chip, and M&M. A colorfully decorated 4-inch cookie makes the perfect plug for the 4-inch hole in your appetite’s precarious dam ($1). Feed a larger crowd with a dozen 3-inch cookies ($4), or charm your bus stop regulars with a more appropriately colossal 16-inch selection ($16). Eileen’s ovens stay at the ready for short notice orders, and custom decorating is also available for any size. While today’s Groupon is valid only at the Lawrence location, Eileen’s boasts locations in several states, and each store is locally owned and operated, ensuring that all cookies speak colloquial Kansan.
