What are the best cookies for delivery in Canada?

Defining the best cookies for delivery in Canada is a loaded question in-part because who does not like gourmet cookies?

Despite the fact that cookies make a great gift for any occasion, a good answer to this question involves two different factors that ought to be considered. These are the way the cookies are packaged and the variety of cookies in the gift.

Picking the type of cookies your gift recipient likes to eat is important. Our experience as longtime cookie masters has shown us that the best way to make sure everyone is happy is to include a weighted balance of different cookie flavours. So, if you are not sure whether they prefer chocolate chip cookies over oatmeal raisin cookies, then we recommend you choose a mix of each type of cookie with 75% chocolate / double chocolate / chocolate yin-and-yang and 25% oatmeal. This will make sure you get some of their favourite cookies.  To help with this, we have many different cookie options in our gift baskets, boxes, bouquets and jars. The most popular cookies we make are our chocolate yin and yang cookies, chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies.

Secondly, the way the cookies are presented is very important. On this post we detail a few of the different ways we package our cookies in the gifts we make to help you get the best cookie gift for delivery in Canada.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we have added extra packaging and are taking additional measures along with our couriers to ensure our cookies are a safe gift to send during this challenging time in Canada.

Pictured below is one of the best cookie gift baskets you can order in Canada. Each gift basket is personalized with the type of cookies, the message you add and the special touches we add to every basket.

Our gifts are not mass produced and each one is unique. We only use high quality ingredients including premium organic flour and genuine vanilla in our cookies.

To give you an idea of the care and value we provide to make our cookies, we detailed the time it takes us to make a gift of goodness in a previous post. So if you would like to know how much time and care goes into making our gifts, please check it out.

What is a Cookie Gram?

A cookie gram is in essence a gift made with cookies that is delivered by post or courier.

  • Technically any cookie delivered by a 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 at or 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).
