During the Victorian era, cookies were known as "sweet biscuits" and were eaten only by paupers, who were forced to substitute rich, hearty tallow with inexpensive sugar. Relish this sweet substitution with today's Groupon: for $22, you get 35 cookies delivered to your door (a $47 value) from Insomnia Cookies. The cost of delivery within 10 miles of downtown Charlotte is included in today's deal, and an extra $5 will be charged for deliveries up to 10 miles beyond that. Please allow up to 7–10 days for your order to be processed.
Choose from eight different flavors: chocolate chunk, peanut butter, sugar, white chocolate macadamia, oatmeal raisin, M&Ms, double chocolate chunk, and snickerdoodle. Or opt for an assortment of freshly baked sweet dough-disks to be sure to please even the pickiest palate. Insomnia Cookies began as a project to feed fresh-baked cookies to hungry college students who spend the wee hours studying, partying, or studying parties for an anthropology course. It quickly evolved into a full-fledged cookie cookery, churning out freshly baked batches of gooey goodness to cookie connoisseurs across the nation. The cookies are rich and chewy—never hard and flat like Herbert Hoover’s jokes—and all cookies are sent out for delivery the same day they are baked.
Insomnia Cookies has generated a lot of media buzz for its late-night cookies across different locations. The New York Times, New York Post, DailyCandy, and Gotham are among the media outlets that have featured Insomnia Cookies:
