Thanksgiving in Canada is such a special time to come together and celebrate all the good that the summer and the year has brought us.
The practice to celebrate the fall harvest and the fruits that result from hard work is important to celebrate. Each year, we like to celebrate Thanksgiving at Better Cookies.ca to recognize our clients for sending their own gifts of gratitude with us.
It seems like the summer passed us by in a blur now that the colder nights is parts of a changing reality in the GTA / Toronto .
We have added a lot of new gifts and options to celebrate a kind act, a love and for the upcoming holidays.
We have both printed cards and locally produced personalized cards available with our gifts. And sometimes we include both depending on the gift you order.
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 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 lately 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.
