(The Triangle Trend) — The only downfall of gourmet cookie delivery is that you may never be able to go back to Chips Ahoy. Even nutter butters just won’t suffice anymore.
However, it’s an experience well worth gifting to a foodie with a wicked sweet tooth. With prices starting at $16, you really can’t go wrong with Carolina Cookies’ holiday treats.
They offer holiday boxes for nearly every occasion, including Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Independence Day, Halloween… need I go on?
While other gifts may miss the mark on certain holidays, you really can’t ever go wrong with cookies. Even the most critical of gift recipients can’t help but smile at a decadent cookie box. Gifted alongside something else or not.
Based in NC, Carolina Cookies offers 1 – 7 Business Days Ground shipping for $11.95. While Amazon Prime may have spoiled lots of us with free shipping, $11.95 is a totally justifiable fee after you see just how many flavors Carolina Cookies offers.
You can choose the flavors yourself or let them choose by selecting one of their cookie assortments, those being: Assortment A, Assortment B, Baker’s Assortment, Fall Assortment, Holiday Assortment, No Chocolate Assortment, No Nut Assortment, or Sugar-Free Assortment.
Assortment A contains Chunky Chocolate Pecan, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Triple Chocolate Pecan, and Oatmeal Raisin.
Assortment B contains Chunky Chocolate, Chunky Reese’s Peanut Butter, Old Fashioned Sugar, and Oatmeal Cranberry Nut.
Available September to January, their Holiday box contains Chunky Chocolate Pecan, Cranberry Pistachio, Gingerbread, and Peppermint Hot Chocolate. A more than worthy pick for a mouth-watering Christmas gift. Just make sure your gift recipient isn’t allergic to nuts!
According to Carolina Cookies “Perfect little sprigs of holly adorn this lovely Christmas cookie box. Freshly baked, packed, and shipped on the same day, our individually-wrapped cookies are perfect as a gift, to share with your family, or to simply devour on your own.”
Available September to March, their Fall box contains Milk Chocolate, Apple Cider, Honey Nut Granola, and Sugar. Another delicious seasonal gift for a loved one who isn’t allergic to nuts.
