The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. With today's Groupon, you'll get $25 worth of freshly baked cookies and brownies for $12 from Geoff & Drew's. You can apply the value toward shipping and send a shipment of sweets anywhere nationwide ($10.95 flat rate).
Launched in 2001 as a Boston-based milk-and-cookie delivery company, Geoff & Drew's quickly evolved after gushy praise in Gourmet magazine. Freshly prepared dough, grade-A butter, pure vanilla, and vibrant gift packaging distinguish these bites from supermarket dunkables and day-old bread. From two-dozen signature polka-dot-boxed oatmeal raisin ($48) to an eight pack of decadent double fudge ($20), the gourmet cookie rounds come in a variety of taste-bud-tempting flavors. For a four-cornered craving, the dense and delicious brownie gift sets have earned national acclaim. Boycott cake and candle-related burns with a happy-birthday gift box of eight brownies ($20) packaged with a pretty cerulean bow. Geoff & Drew's also sells a smattering of corporate gifts and gift baskets.
The days of softening sticks of salted or unsalted butter, inadvertently eating raw egg, and burning your cookie grabbers grabbing hot cookies off pans, plates, and electrified cookie jars have gone into that hard, stale past where philosophers sleep. Geoff & Drew's baked goods solve many of the problems associated with cookies, including scarcity, rareness, and shortage of cookies. You can place your order by phone or email.

Rachael Ray named the chocolate chip cookies a Snack of the Day, and Gentry magazine called them "the best cookies we've ever tasted." The brownies were a Top Pick of the Week at The Nibble, and the cookies won the Best Cookie award at the 2009 New England Dessert Showcase.
- The caveat emptor on these brownies is that they melt in your mouth so easily that one brownie seems like only half a portion. To compensate, we drink an extra tall glass of milk with each. – The Nibble
