What You'll Get
A cookie remains the standard parental reward for achievement, whether it's for getting an A in geometry or being awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving the president from his evil shadow. Savor the warm, gooey flavor of triumph with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a half-sheet cookie cake from Mrs. Fields, located on Randolph Street in the Loop (a $44.99 value).
Mrs. Fields' sugary delectables have lifted the spirits of mall shoppers and fortified dessert-deprived food courts for more than 30 years. The Loop's stand-alone sweet shop entices passers-by with the customized confectionary craftwork found on every half-sheet cookie cake, built from the dough up to customer specifications. After selecting one of five flavors, including white chocolate macadamia and semi-sweet chocolate chip, choose a color and border pattern to match your favorite sports team or Rorschach test. Quadrilateral sweet-shacks come adorned with a personalized message such as "Happy Birthday," or "Congrats On Jury Duty." The cake's 20–25 servings can be divvied among your closest friends, or offered as an anniversary gift to your sweetheart to make up for last year's barely edible diamond ring.
Although Mrs. Fields sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
- Go ahead and try. You won't find a sweeter deal in this part of town than Mrs. Fields, where an inexpensive pound (or five) of the most scrumptious stuff around will more than satisfactorily stand in for an actual meal. – Abigail Derecho, Centerstage Chicago
- Yes - the cookie cake. A marvelous creation that needs to be tried at least once (while fresh, of course). Once you've had one, it makes most cakes out there seem dull by comparison. - Aaron S., Yelp, 12/20/09
