Do you know one thing that is contagious that I wish more people would catch? A smile. Have you ever noticed that when you smile at someone 99.9999% of the time, they’ll smile back at you. And did you notice, that once you start smiling, the rest of your day just feels better? Smiling leads to happiness. So imagine how good you’d feel if you went to grab a quick bite to eat and saw this:
Admit it – you just smiled, didn’t you? And you know what’s even better? This happy face is a cookie!
About the Smiley Cookie Phenomenon
That’s right, phenomenon. Our online cookie gifts — fresh-made, hand-iced customized cookies — have the world baking up excuses to send them! In fact, our custom cookies are the greatest thing since sliced bread, except sweeter and a lot more fun to give than a loaf of whole wheat.
Our smile has gotten even bigger with our online cookie delivery company — fresh-baked, hand-iced Smiley Cookies delivered all over the country — fast and fresh. Smiles for miles each and every day!
Excited is an understatement for how I felt receiving my cookies from SmileyCookie.com. I’ve been noticing these cookies on some other blogs and knew that they just look like happy cookies. I mean…they’re smiling!
Smiley Cookies are delivered fresh to your door and when I opened my box of 12, they were still surprisingly soft as if they had just come out of the oven that morning. The icing was soft as well – the telltale sign of a fresh cookie. Even though the cookies were fresh, Smiley Cookie recommended that I heat my cookie up for about 10 seconds in the microwave. I really enjoyed eating the heated cookies – you could almost smell the baked cookie fragrance as it was heating.
It’s also worth noting that all of the cookies arrived in one piece – not a single cookie was broken! If you aren’t feeling up to eating 12 cookies right away, then you can also freeze your Smiley Cookies and heat them up later.
At first I thought it would be hard to eat a cookie that was smiling at me, but then I reminded myself, “This is a cookie” and I quickly resolved to eat the happy face. I settled down with my heated cookie and began to munch away. How do you eat a cookie that’s smiling at you? I simply nibble around the edges first, keeping the smile as long as possible. Then I take out the eyes, so no one will watch me finish the rest – haha!
When it comes to taste, picture a cookie that is a cross between a sugar cookie and shortbread. The texture is soft and thick, with a subtle sweetness. The cookies are hand-iced and the icing is applied in a thin layer – not too thick but just enough to provide an extra hint of sweetness. This cookie would please both the young and the old cookie monsters out there.
Smiley Cookie is a great option for gift giving. In addition to being tasty, you can select from one of their many gift baskets or smiley mixes, which start as low as $13.99. If you’re feeling creative or you want to add a special touch to your cookie mix, you can also create your own cookie, where you can select from one of the five cookie shapes (Original Smiley, Mini Smiley, Flower Smiley, Heart Smiley, and Star Smiley), choose your base icing color, and then choose the color of your smiley face. There are 12 different icing colors available which allows for 780 Smiley Cookie combinations (if I did my math right.) Custom cookies start at just $12.99/dozen.
