What You'll Get
In the longstanding mystery of who stole the cookies, the suspects have been narrowed down to: you, me, Professor Plum, and the self-aware cookie jar with an insatiable mechanical hunger. Avoid suspiciously sinister sweets scenarios and upgrade to a more-cozy consumption corner with today's deal: for $9, you get $20 worth of cookies, bars, and lunch-café eats at The Cookie Jar on West 10th Street. The Local Best considers The Cookie Jar one of the city's top five cookie connections. This Groupon is good for dine-in and pick-up only, which means customers will be forcibly subjected to sweet bakery scents and pupil-dilating delicacies fresh from the oven.
The Cookie Jar makes all the circular creations on its cookie menu from a delicious, deweaponized plastic explosive known as "scratch." In the Monster, this scratch takes the form of peanut butter, chocolate chips, M&Ms, and oatmeal. The Rice Krispies chocolate-chip coconut cookie, meanwhile, doubles as both a milk sponge and frolf Frisbee (all 6-inch circular cookies are $1.78 each or $21.36 per dozen). Dress a cookie to impress a foodie fashionista with 3-inch decorated cookies ($12.50 per dozen) or relate to any old square with a mutual admiration for pumpkin, brownie, or other specialty bars ($10.50 per dozen).
Chasing your cookies with lunch at The Cookie Jar upends the age-old adage, "Dessert before lunch, sailor's panties will bunch; dessert after dinner, your raccoon's a winner." The lunch menu hosts savory meat-sandwich specials daily ($4.50) and a rotating list of soups served in an inedible bowl ($3.90) or an edible breadable bowl ($5.95); or opt for a bowl of soup, bread, and a rhyme-ruining cookie ($7.00).
Founded in 2002 to educate children on the value of math, The Cookie Jar has produced dozens of grosses of googles of fresh-baked sweets and breads with a high degree of care without becoming obtuse. Stop in for a quick lunch or grab some treats on the run; the staff will happily provide customers with hunger-quenching goodies in a way that doesn't interrupt their exciting chase scene.
The Cookie Jar has also been featured on Keloland TV.
