Holiday Treat Review: Eileen’s Colossal Cookies

Eileen’s Colossal Cookies have a colossal amount of taste. When first walking into Eileen’s, the smell of freshly baked cookies is enticing. The walls are donned with pictures of designs for cookies. On the left, there is a display case, full of the delicious treats, each hand-decorated by the staff. No two cookies are the exact same.

Taking a bite into the holiday sugar cookie was almost like biting into a piece of Heaven. The cookie was sweet and had a layer of frosting on top of it. Some of the cookies had sprinkles, others did not, but they were all beautifully unique.

The price for these treats was reasonable, only $1 per cookie in a box of twelve per the customer’s choice. To buy a box with pre-selected cookies is $4.50. Cookies not only come in standard cookie size, but pizza-size as well. The cookies can come in many different flavors. Some examples are chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, snickerdoodle, sugar, and lemon.

Eileen’s is located on 401 W Whitestone Blvd., beside Panda Express and behind Walmart off of 1431. The store is open Monday-Friday from 8am to 6:30pm, and on Saturday from 8am to 5pm.

It has been open since March 2013. They also have a website that displays the nutritional value of the cookies. Go to: www.eileenscookies.com/products/flavors to view.
