Cookies out of the blue

Saturday, March 19, 2011

 

How awesome would it be if you were just walking down the street all hungry and wishing for a cookie (like I pretty much am all the time) and then one appeared in front of you on a string???? Yeah that could happen if you were in San Francisco and decided to walk by this cookie shops 2nd story window :)
See an article here :)

Update: Since I read the article, looks like Fat Cookies was shut down for not having permits :( (nice catch guys!) But you can follow @eatfatcookies on twitter to watch for where they appear next!

How wonderful. I love love to read about things like this - people spreading joy (deliciously) all over the world :)

Audrey Allure said...

Haha that is such a fun idea; although in the article they say that they have been shut down by the SFPD. Even so, that is probably a good marketing campaign lol.

Radness! I can't tell you how many times I have thought, "oh, I wish a frosted sugar cookie with sprinkles would fall out of the sky"...well, if I was walking past this bakery...it just might :) Happy weekend, friend! xx Cat

vojacque said...

... ah, off to search for a big, soft & chewy just-out-of-the-oven cookie!

Bad Taste Toast said...

Ahahaha how cool is this? :D

Btw I still owe you an answer about the comment verification (sorry, haven't visited your blog in so long argh):
I simply think it's nice of blogger.com to leave the choice to the users. I use it in my comment section because you can never know what crazy people might stumble upon your blog in the www and begin to spam for some weird reasons ;)
Though I'm glad this never happened to me so far.

Have a lovely weekend! :)

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

that is the coolest thing ever!!!! i'm in love with such a scrumpness idea, what a clever shoppe to think of such a thing.

i used to live above a chocolatiere and let me tell ya, the scents wafting up to my window on a warm summers day were like a little bit of heaven. awesome post and info. i NEED to get my butt over to San Fran asap. ♥

pea ess: love the addition on your sidebar with the comment word verification skull and crossbones stylin'. way to keep it unique and on point lades!

I knew before I read your text that that is SF (my city!). I've never been to that cookie shop, and so I actually looked it up. I'm going to be that neighborhood - the Mission - tomorrow so I'm going to try to stop by - if they're 'open'.

Lisa Daria said...

That would be a dream come true - pretty much any sugary treat dangling from a string would suffice - I hope they get their permits back!

mienkintoshfairie said...

Why must they penalize people that are innocent and not doing any harm :(. That is so cool, and they had to shut it down. Next they will come onto the internet and shut down mom and pop cookie shops

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i'm pretty sure i'd just about die if a cookie magically appeared before me.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

too bad it's shut down. i love cookies. just had this chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and whipped cream on top for dessert! it was fantastic.

Annie said...

that's so fun and quirky! too bad they got shut down. I fell in love with SF when I was there in January..

Meghan Bailey @ Violet Sage said...

That is awesome... So awesome

Catita said...

too bad that would also be my dream come true! at least one out of the million dreams I have!
