Today: Free Cookies In Rittenhouse Square


Christmas spice-cakes with chocolate

Yeah, that’s right. It’s time for another Best Of Philly public taste test, and this time we are asking you, the good people of Philadelphia, to help us decide who has the best cookies in Philadelphia.

How can you help? By showing up in Rittenhouse Square at noon today,  eating a bunch of free cookies and telling us what you think. Here’s who’ll be there and what they’ll be feeding the masses:

Belle Cakery — Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Famous 4th Street Cookies — Double Chocolate Chip Cookie
Isgro Pastries — Butter Sponge Ricotta Cookie with Lemon Zest Icing
Insomnia Cookies — Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Hope’s Cookies — Hope’s Royale: Hawaiian macadamia nut, fresh coconut and semisweet chocolate

The event starts at noon, but yes, there’s going to be a line. Probably a long one. Plan accordingly. And we’ll keep handing out cookies until they’re gone, but that likely won’t take all that long so, again, plan accordingly. And when you’re all done eating, all we’re going to ask is that you fill out a ballot naming your favorite. The winner will be revealed in this year’s Best of Philly issue, which will be hitting the stands in August.
