Oct 22, 2019 ByLaura Lee

They say there are two types of people in the world: those with a sweet tooth and those who crave all things salty. But, we dare venture to ask, what does a person do when they’re craving both salty and sweet? Fear no more! Allow us to introduce cookie fries, one of the most delicious inventions of the modern world. Created by The Cookie Joint, owners Jill Balick and Susie Schuster decided to combine two fo the greatest junk foods into one crunchy and sweet goodie. The treat looks like a crinkle-cut french fry, tastes like a cookie, and can be enjoyed with various dipping sauces. The Cookie Joint is based in Chicago, but the good news is that you can order them online from the company’s website! Hooray for the Internet! 

According to their website, “Jill Balick and Susie Schuster started The Cookie Joint® as a way to express their deep devotion to all things cookies, and their desire to make eating cookies fun again. Their goal was to create a new and different cookie. Something truly innovative. A reinvention of what a cookie could be. So they invented COOKIE FRIES! COOKIE FRIES are delicious shortbread cookies cut and shaped like crinkle-cut French fries, packaged in classic fry cartons, and served with decadent dipping sauces.The Cookie Joint is a true labor of love. Just as each ingredient is thoughtfully selected and poured into mixing bowls with care, Jill and Susie pour their hearts into every aspect of their business. They continue to create new and innovative recipes, surprising flavors, and fun, customizable packaging that makes every cookie from The Cookie Joint… Mmm-emorable.”
