A cookie gram is in essence a gift made with cookies that is delivered by post or courier.
Technically any cookie delivered by courier could be considered a cookie gram.
Cookie grams come in many sizes of cookie grams, but in general cookie grams are usually large cookies with a message inscribed on the top.
The quality of the cookie gram varies a lot between companies in Canada. The cheaper cookies grams on the market tend to use cheap ingredients or other short cuts.
This is where there is a lot of variation in the market and understanding why helps answer the question of what a cookie gram is in more detail. We make cookie grams every day and as experts in creating these giant cookies, we wanted to share some of our knowledge.
Not all cookie grams are the same.
So, why would a company use cheap ingredients or short cuts you might ask to make their cookies grams?
From our experience, when you factor in what it takes to make a delicious tasting cookie gram properly and to package it into a nice looking gift, it is not a cheap gift to make. So when you see cookie grams selling below $40 as a delivered gift in Canada, some corners have to be cut to make this possible. Commonly this means using cheaper ingredients in the cookie including cutting back on the quality of the chocolate (and use of imitation vanilla and other cheaper alternatives to each element of the cookie).
We have been having a lot of fun this chilly Spring creating some long stem cookie bouquets for a few lucky people in the GTA. We typically deliver our bouquets in Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Mississauga, Brampton and a few in Toronto. They are very fragile and have to be handled with care.
Our cookie bouquets are always unique, awesome and made by hand. We package and make each one with care. Every cookie we make is made from small batches using ingredients that embody goodness. And we even add in extra chocolate chips on top of the chocolate cookies… No corner is cut in making these gourmet gifts.
We are happy to share that we have added three new chocolate cookies this Spring which taste absolutely divine.
We have been working over the past year to develop the perfect peppermint chocolate cookie and two of these cookies are the result of our hard work.
And, we did not hold back on the chocolate for these cookies! They are filled with chocolate chips in the batter using our unique process to combine the ingredients. When we shape each cookie by hand we push as many chocolate chunks into to the top.
