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).
As we wait for some cookies to cool, we thought our vegan and veggie friends who might like to know about a great new tool for finding vegetarian and vegan friendly businesses and restaurants in Toronto and around the GTA.
