I sent cookies to a mate for her birthday and all the ones in bags got there fine. But when she opened the boxed cookies (Classic Pepperidge Farms) they were all shattered. Some were completely broken to powder. Since it was a bonus I do not wish her to have to send it back. But I guess I will not order these again.
I ordered for an happening latest night and had to stop at the shop to buy another box because most of these were broken. Taste amazing but looks not good and the presentation is what it’s about for this Particular box. You’d think folks would know to package more carefully
I ordered these pepperidge farm classic cookies on a whim, they looked like a nice dozens and I really haven't tried this brand so I thought I'd give them a try.When my order arrived, they were all in tack and taste new and crunchy. To me besides the variation of the chocolate, they all beautiful much tasted the same. Now, don't obtain me wrong they have a nice vanilla flavored base cookie. But I guess I just thought they would be more of a dozens of flavors, is all.With the variation of shapes, I think they would be very beautiful on a nice plate to be served with tea and or coffee or dessert table when entertaining guest.Would I order again, maybe, but at least now I can say I have tried they and they are beautiful good.
These are my most favorite cookies. I used to buy them at the store. Now all the stores I have looked in don't sell them anymore. This is a dozens package with delicious cookies. They sell some of the individual flavors, but not the dozens pack. I will hold buying these.
I would have given this 5 stars except that having it come through Amazon Pantry, several of the cookies (~30%) were broken. Now they still tasted amazing and we enjoyed them, but I now just buy this item from the grocery shop because I like the look of whole cookies.I love the assortment. I generally eat most of the chocolate ones while my husband loves the shortbread Chessmen cookies. There's something for everyone to enjoy.... unless you're gluten intolerant. Still, they are beautiful to look at... unless they're all broken up from shipping.
Love these cookies! Unfortunately upon receipt of them, they where crumbles. Some large, some small. Not sure if this was a shipping concern because the outer pack looked unscathed. Maybe the Amazon warehouse played football with the package? Not sure.
Around the holidays I've been able to search a cookie assortment related to this one. I like having these types of cookies on hand as they have plain as well as some with a small chocolate on them. Amazing for dishing out to the grandchildren for a treat and simple to seal up. Plus, it prevents me from baking a few dozen and eating them when the grandchildren aren't here. These i place aside for the kids.
The cookies came well packed, almost all of them were intact. Only one or two was cracked. They’re new and taste great. A nice method to sample various types of cookies I wouldn’t normally buy otherwise. I transferred the paper liners into a Tupperware to hold them fresh.
Excellent combination of dark chocolatey cookies and more plain sugar/butter cookies. Now allow me see if I can remember all the names of the types of cookies in here. Milano, Chessmen, Pirouettes, Brussels, Geneva, Bordeaux, Lido, Orleans, Lisbon. It's a decent size box. Nice and new and delicate. They don't ship too well. A lot of of mine were broken...but so tasty! Amazing with ice cream. There were probably 40 cookies or so in this one box--at least three of each of the 9 varieties, more of the thinner cookies.
If you are like the vast majority of us and don't have unlimited money, you will not actually be able to BUY anything featured in this magazine, but that doesn't mean it's not fun to look at! I was a charter subscriber because I love children clothes, especially boutique fancy ones. That doesn't mean I buy them, at least new, but I like knowing what the expensive brands look like for when I search them at the Goodwill! That about sums up Cookie Magazine for me---I can read about what I would do if I had the is really isn't that various than reading a regular parenting magazine like Parents. Most of us don't really rush out and do all the crafts they show, or cook all the recipes, but it's still fun to know what we MIGHT do some day. I guess Cookie just lets me dream a small least favorite part of the magazine are the profiles of popular parents and their kids, mainly because they are rarely very insightful, mainly they are just used to model clothes. I don't mind the clothes, but why pretend it's an interview?My recent problem of Cookie seems to be half recognizing today's financial situation---it actually has an article called Money-Saving Vacations! I actually hope they don't hold going in that direction---I wish to read about THRILLING EXOTIC vacations that I will never take!If you are looking for useful down to earth parenting hints and what K-Mart is selling this season, this is not the magazine for you. If you wish to indulge in parenting fantasies for a while, look no further!
I got this subscription free when purchasing something else, so at least I am glad I did not pay for it. I will definitely not be is is like Vogue for the parenting set -- it's fashion, decorating, how to spend the most cash on your small kids....nothing really about parenting. I thought it would perhaps be something a small more classy than Parenting or Parents, but as far as I can tell, the content has nothing to do with actual parenting, only about how to spend as much cash as possible.
Such a attractive book! We have all sorts of color themed books for learning first words etc but we are all in love with this cookie book! Such a nice change of pace for learning colors!!! Attractive pictures and attractive cookies! Our whole family is enjoying this book!
This magazine is proof positive that magazine editors in Fresh York Town (or L.A.) live in a rarefied globe of their own making. I started getting this as a gift subscription when I bought some kids' product a few years ago and then somehow I just hold getting it, even though I've never resubscribed, and certainly would not pay to do so. I flip through it every month and periodically there will be some interesting tidbit - they have had some amazing segments on kids' parties and also on cooking dinner - but then I'll stumble across something that infuriates me so much I inevitably throw the magazine in the trash. An EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLAR Burberry dress for a toddler? I don't spend $800 A YEAR on my son's clothes! The "mom's fashion" recommendations are always eye-bulgingly ridiculous - $900 sandals, $700 dresses for a "date night" with my husband (where I assume we will be eating ramen noodles in the park as that's all we'd be able to afford to do, that's if he didn't divorce me when he got the Visa bill). This month was the unique "travel issue" and the recommendations included spending $675 on the "perfect" rolling duffel (we got ours at REI for $110 and it seems to work fine) and staying in Bora Bora - with your children - in an ELEVEN HUNDRED DOLLAR A NIGHT over-water bungalow. One writer wrote a small piece on how they go back to the same hotel on the Italian coast every year for vacation with their son. Wow, must be nice! I know those quaint small Italian hotels don't come cheap, not to mention airfare to Europe for three. Who are these people editing this magazine, and how can they possibly afford to live like this? The amazing nuggets of info come cloaked in ridiculous over-the-top spending recommendations that create me feel the magazine has absolutely no relevance to my life as a middle-class mom who works part-time and can barely afford to at TJ Maxx these days. I love the fun, smart tone of some of the articles, but overall the whole magazine is this weird mix of slightly crunchy/thoughtful parenting mixed with snobby elitist consumerism. I think they could have a true champion of a mom's magazine if they would set a $50 limit on kids' stuff and a $150 limit on adult stuff that they recommend, or better yet, excise most of the spending items entirely (especially the Vogue-ish kids/moms fashion spreads in the back of the magazine, which I don't even read any more because they're so ridiculous). I doubt the moms who are running around in $1200 Jimmy Choo boots really care that much about parenting philosophy, and those of us who do are the ones making financial sacrifices to spend more time with our kids. I obtain the feeling this mag is really geared for wives of Hollywood executives or NYC financiers who can afford designer clothes and wish to feel virtuous about being a amazing mom when they run out and buy a $250 set of sustainably-harvested wood blocks at Cookie's behest. The celebrity-mom fetishizing gets a small old, as well - just because some celebrity has popped out a child doesn't mean she's a mom I wish to emulate. There was an article a few months back with Gretchen Mol where she talked about her child for about 1/8th of the article and the rest of it was about her career and about clothes. I'd rather see articles about true moms who are actually mothering, than some actress or model who uses their baby as a fashion ere are some amazing points about the mag, but overall the whole thing has a snotty and unrealistic vibe that makes it impossible for me to really enjoy. And in this economy, recommending $250 kids' hoodies and $675 sandals for mom seems completely tone-deaf. Most of us are worried about how we're going to hold saving for college and retirement and still place meal on the table, we're not looking for recommendations on which $500-a-night hotel is the most kid-friendly. Our family vacation this year consisted of driving four hours to spend a week in a borrowed timeshare and we could barely afford that, and I felt lucky compared to our mates who only had enough cash to go camping a couple of times. I have to say, as much as I roll my eyes at Redbook or Amazing Housekeeping sometimes, there's more I can relate to in those magazines.
I obtain Vogue, Harper's, etc. and was looking forward to a more "upscale" mag for parents...but this is chock-full of meaningless drivel and eyeball-rolling articles that took me about 2 mins to skim through. It's pretentious - but not in a fun way. I just discovered "Wondertime" and it's all that I wanted Cookie to be. Intelligent, modern, thoughtfully written...ads that appeal to a various demographic than some of the other parenting mags...articles that create sense to a modern mommy without the need to roll your eyes as you read it...not overwhelmed with the horrible advertising that Cookie inundates you with...realistic for most demographics including higher tax brackets...I don't see the point for Cookie magazine to exist. I had to cancel my subscription, and I'm someone who LOVES getting mags (I subscribe to about 15, several being parenting magazines). I felt myself becoming a worse parent and human being for reading Cookie's drivel.
I just started a subscription, and search this a amazing replacement for the fluffy escapist fashion mag subs I allow run out. Of course, I don't expect to buy any of the over-priced clothing in here, but it's still nice to look at! And now I can look at eye-candy in my daughter's size, too. The articles can be superficial, but the viewpoint is miles hipper than most mom mags. If I had to see another article about decorating birthday cupcakes with clown faces I would have had to down a whole bottle of baby Tylenol. My husband gives it the thumbs-up after I suggested we take up their relationship challenge for latest month and have s*x seven nights in a row. He he! Give them a break- magazines like this are for fun!
Such a lovely book! Holly Fox has a real talent with color, design, and cookies! Each page is a attractive exploration in color and artistry of detail. My favorites are the butterfly wings (orange) and umbrellas (blue). A unbelievable picture book and a amazing gift!
What I liked most about this magazine that it had amazing buying tutorials and special clothes that have style for my daughters not all of that cheap glitter and tacky items you search in most run of the mill department stores as I said clothes with style, and shoes. No I don't agree with everything in this magazine but I have yet to agree 100% on the other magazines that I have read and will read.
I got a free subscription to this magazine. Needless to say, I won't be renewing my subscription. My first gripe is that it is full of ads. Literally, every other page is an ad for something glitsy & up-piddyMy second & largest gripe is that I, as a normal, middle class mom, cannot relate to the pretentious nature of the magazine. In this day & age when we can hardly pay for gas and food; this magazine still maintains its elitist character. I really wonder, aside from Jennifer Lopez & Gwen Stefani, if any woman can relate to the lifestyles that are presented in is magazine promotes what is poor about our country. It creates an 'air' that people should be concerned more with clothing & items than building relations with our family & mates or protecting the environment.I do have to say that the photographs are attractive & the magazine is well written. But I need more than sparkles & beautiful colors to be inspired.If you dream about 'all that glitters' you might like this. But for those realists out there who are trying to teach their children values instead about 'valuables', avoid this magazine!
Of all the parenting mags I've read or casually looked at, Cookie is the worst. In fact, it could quite possibly be the lamest magazine across all itially, Cookie was advertised as a magazine for moms and their kids, for the trendy, modern mom. Okay, I'm a young, (in my own mind) hip mom. The mag sounded great. So I, like a fool, subscribed based on a small 4X6 card that came in the mail.Whoa is me! Cookie is 1/3 advertisement for stuff far, far, far, far to pricey for your average (or even above average) family income. Baby shampoo at 60 dollars a bottle? A five thousand dollar crib that isn't a standard size so you have to purchase the four hundred dollar sheet sets as well?Don't even obtain me started on the vacations. "Mommy Bikini Bootcamp"? A mama and baby getaway geared to whip post-baby mom back into shape with packages from $5000 to $ one can only imagine, at this point, the meal ideas, the decorating tips, the clothing spreads . . . call me old-fashioned, frugal, without culture, or whatever, but this mag is ridiculous. I'm sure there is a wealthy Fresh York mom that is so satisfied that a parenting magazine with some class is finally available, but the best thing about this magazine is that you can gawk and giggle at the ads and articles with your (humdrum penny-pinching) mates every month!
I can understand why some people don't like this magazine. I have fun it. I also have fun Parents magazine. But they're very different. Cookie has some practical children articles, dinner ideas, etc. But it also reads more like a women's fashion magazine. The products featured (especially the clothing) is really expensive. I have fun flipping through, but would never actually buy anything. But that's how most women's magazines are so I don't necessarily search it pretentious, just various from typical parenting magazines.
This cute small cookbook is full of interesting cookie recipes for a traditional cookie table along with stories and helpful hints. I enjoyed reading it and will test some of the recipes. BUT the binding is terrible! When I initially opened the book, three pages in the center fell out immediately. The more I read, the more pages came out. That's the reason for three stars.
Hard to say whether the adult or kid is more enchanted with this wonderfully, colourful book. The art work, colors and shapes are glorious. Want this author had MORE books available!Anxious to see even more colors and shapes in Holly Fox's future books. The photos are so wonderful that the wee ones asked us to read it again and again.Look forward to seeing more from this very talented person. Among the best purchases we'vemade in a long time. This book makes a amazing bonus for parents, grandparents and anyone else whoenjoys making a small one very happy.
Don’t be dumb. Create your children smarter. Buy them this book. All the colors of the rainbow. An awesome forage into the wilderness of cookies and colors. Would love if the colors are broken down onto Specific Pantone. My infant wasn’t sure of the exact Purple reference.
So we got a free subscription, and I thought we'd give it a try. With a name like "Cookie" it had to be at least cute, right? Wrong! I flipped begin to the article and images about the kids living in their own five-story grass frou-frou house behind their parents', along with their designer clothing and blonde amazing looks, and was sickened on a various level by the article written by the mother who supports begin talk about with her children, including graphic explanations to her young son about her vibrator. It was the description, however, of her encouraging her daughter to have fun the water on her personal parts that completely turned me off, and that deal was sealed with the condemnation of the nanny, who does not help before marriage, because she's a CHRISTIAN! Oh, my, guess this wasn't written for me, becasue I'm a - gasp! - CHRISTIAN too!I could cancel, but hey, if I just dump it into the recycle bin when it comes, maybe the company will go broke from postage. I should have known it was garbage when it was packaged with a complimentary problem of "Hollywood" magazine. Sheesh!
