"Whether it's a drip, latte or cappuccino, Americans are hopelessly addicted to their coffee. According to the Specialty Coffee Association of America, specialty coffee was an $11 billion industry in 2005, up from $9.6 billion in 2004. But some historians theorize that what Americans are really looking for in their cup of joe is a sense of belonging."

From the beginning, it was obvious that Blue Chip Cookies was not going to be just another cookie store. When the doors of the first store on San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf opened in March 1983, the public fell in love with the aroma and taste of these unique gourmet cookies. By introducing the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie to the United States, Blue Chip Cookies began its history of offering innovative, new tastes in gourmet cookies in addition to standard cookie favorites such as the much-loved Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Still, there's nothing basic about any of our gourmet cookies. Baked from scratch every day, our "Always Fresh" gourmet cookies are made with only the highest quality ingredients and no preservatives. Each location scoops and mixes fresh ingredients for each batch of our gourmet cookies. This is our deliver freshness and the "ULTIMATE COOKIE EXPERIENCE" to our customers.
