My Thoughts on Insomnia Cookies
Insomnia Cookies made a name for itself as a leader in late-night cookie delivery. Any night of the week, people can call or order online and have freshly baked cookies delivered right to their door. This is a big selling point in a city with a surplus of college students and young adults.
Unfortunately, Northeastern is not within delivery range of any stores so I ventured out to the location on Boston University’s campus. During the day, I was the store’s only customer and had the chance to speak with the manager, Paige Boynton who told me that the most popular cookie choice is, “chocolate chunk, definitely.”
I went back close to their peak time with my roommate after an event that we went to nearby. We went in and got two cookies, the s’mores and the triple chocolate chunk, just before a large group of girls came in. Even on a Monday night, the stores had quite a few patrons. I was not surprised to learn that crowds form outside on the weekends. The store itself is relatively small and doesn’t have a place for customers to sit down, it is truly designed for people to just come in, order, and go.
The cookies themselves are delicious and are served warm in a box that resembles a pizza box. I honestly couldn’t finish my s’mores cookie in a single sitting simply because of how rich it was. Of course, I came back to it after just a few minutes. I think that the idea of a cookie delivery service is fantastic and I only wish that I lived close enough to take advantage of it.
