How much would you pay for a shot glass-shaped cookie filled with milk – no dunking required?
Well, according to Grub Street, a New Yorker recently bought eight of celebrity chef Dominique Ansel's cookie shots at an auction for $6,500. That’s $812.50 per cookie shot!
If that seems reasonable, then boy do we have a deal for you!
When you forgo the packaging to order brownies in bulk, you get them for $31.95 per dozen. That’s just $2.66 per brownie. Not bad, huh?
If cookies are more to your liking, you can order cookies in bulk for just $35.95 per two dozen, or $1.50 per cookie. Of course, these cookies won’t fold into a cylinder and hold milk. But that seems a small price to pay for such a killer deal.
Now, it’s important to note that the price of Ansel’s cookie shots benefited City Harvest, a nonprofit that collects food to feed the underprivileged of New York. Ansel shared his excitement over the fundraising windfall by tweeting: “8 cookie shots gets $6.5K for City Harvest! It's just 24cents to give someone a meal.”
We salute the efforts of Ansel and City Harvest … not to mention the financial means of the buyer. If your pockets aren’t quite as deep, you may want to order brownies or cookies in bulk and save a few bucks on your next shipment.
