Q: Are the cookies really homemade?
Yes - as a Cottage Food Operation, all cookies are made/baked in an actual home kitchen inspected by our county's Department of Health here in the Bay Area.
Q: For how long will the cookies stay fresh?
Great question! Because our cookies are baked fresh without preservatives, they stay juicy in the package for about 2-3 weeks if left on the counter. Now if you want to save your Juicy Cookie Co. treats for a later date in the future, then keep them in an airtight container and place in the fridge - they will be tasty for up to 6 weeks! And up to 3 months in the freezer...make sure you thaw them before eating. Placing the thawed cookies in a low temp oven (300 degrees) for about 10 minutes, will result in a cookie that taste like it was freshly baked!
Q: I have a pretty severe peanut allergy, is it ok to try the peanut free cookies?
As much as I would like for everyone to share in the Juicy Cookie Co goodness, my honest answer would be to say "NO". A few of my cookies have nuts, peanuts even. And although I try my best to sanitize equipment in between batches, the medical professional in me would advise you to just avoid my cookies if you have a severe allergy to any of the 8 major allergens...just to be safe.
Sorry 'bout that
Q: Are your cookies certified vegan and gluten-free?
In addition to NOT using any animal products or gluten-containing ingredients, all equipment/utensils are strictly used for the preparation of our vegan/gf cookies - with the exception of the stove, of course. Because we are a home kitchen that isn't exclusively vegan/gf (thank my husband), we are unable to be fully certified. Once we move into a commercial kitchen, we will up our certification game to
Q: Your website says "it takes 5-7 days" for my cookie order to be ready...is there anyway to get it sooner?
Magic 8 Ball says, "Good things come to those who wait!" Just kidding . All orders are baked fresh daily...no cookies off the shelf in my kitchen! But if you really need cookies sooner, shoot me an email! I'm sure we can figure something out! Also, if you are in the Bay Area, feel free to visit one of the locations we partner with to try our cookies and tell them Jay sent you!
