Chocolate Chip Cookie from Caribou Coffee

Item Purchased: Chocolate Chip Cookie from Caribou Coffee
Location Purchased: Caribou Coffee / 1328 S. Halsted / Chicago, IL
Price: $1.50 + tax

Review: Ever since Caribou hired on their new cook (no, seriously folks, the company hired one guy to oversee the production of all of their foodstuffs…I kid you not), I have been addicted to these discs of sin. I’m not sure what proof or type of alcohol or strand of nicotine is baked into this cookie’s dough, but whatever it is, it keeps me coming back for more.

The dough of these cookies is always soft (probably from some kind of chemical preservative, but that just means that my body will be preserved, right?) and the chocolate chunks taste as if they were chipped from giant blocks of freshly made chocolate by tiny elves living inside of forest trees. I know what you are thinking. You’re thinking “hey, that’s some other brand of cookie!” No. That is some other brand of cookie’s ad campaign. These cookies actually taste like they were made by elves inside trees. I bet you don’t even know what that tastes like, do you? Don’t lie to me. Just try one of these cookies and then you’ll know. Then we can debate about elves and trees all you like. Until then, keep it down about the elves!

People will think you are crazy.

Note (12/05/2005): Even though I bought coffee at the grocery store so I wouldn’t have to buy a new cup of coffee every day, I still find myself going down to Caribou to say hello to the people who work there. I consider them my friends. I have shared drinks with most of them. It’s an odd thing to make friends due to being a regular in a store. And even though the friendship is no longer predicated on my purchase, I feel the need to support their workday and throw a tip in the cup. Not that I feel I am buying my friends, but they are in the same day-long predicament as me and if I can do something as minor as throw some change in their tip jar to make it easier, I am going to do it. Not as a requirement, but as a gesture of goodwill.
