If you’re a freshman, I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors. If you’re a senior, I’m sure you’ve heard and confirmed the rumors over, and over and over again (sorry, for all of the charges, mom and dad). Baked! of Bloomington is not fictional place. It is a very real place on third street with a very real and delicious goal: to deliver freshly baked cookies with ice cold milk straight to your door.
Whether it’s the drunchies or the munchies, Baked! has the sweet for you. You create your very own cookies, and as long as you choose 3 or more of each kind, you can mix or match to curb your cookie cravings.
Before you choose your type of cookie, you need to first choose how many you would like. Sizes range from 3 cookies to 26 cookies, but their “Hot Box” special, which includes thirteen cookies (a baker’s dozen), and two pints of milk, or the Munchie Special — six cookies and one pint of milk are their most popular choices.
Step two: pick your dough. Sugar, oatmeal, chocolate, peanut butter, vegan and gluten-free flavors are always available, but Baked! offers tasty seasonal flavors as well. Helloooo, pumpkin cookies.
Step three: pick your fixin’s. With 22 amazing add-ins to choose from, Baked! has every craving covered. From basic semi-sweet chocolate chips to Reese’s Pieces and graham crackers, Baked! has the fixin’ for you. Can’t choose a favorite? No worries, Baked! let’s you choose up to four fixin’s per cookie. Booya!
Step four: Afterbakes. I’m sorry, did you think you were done?? You can top your cookie creations with vanilla or chocolate frosting, caramel or honey for free. Or pay an extra 50¢ and add anything from marshmallows to Twix bars on top of those babies.
Step 5: pick your milk. Baked! offers three types of milk: skim (because you’re obviously concerned about your weight after ordering a full four fixin’s and topping your cookies with a Snicker’s bar.), 2% and chocolate (just in case you didn’t get enough in your cookies). They also sell Silk Almond milk in both chocolate and vanilla for all of my lactose readers out there.
Oh, so you say you only like cookie dough? Baked! sells pints of raw cookie dough. I don’t think I need to explain why you should order this, so I’ll just move on.
Like your cookies with ice cream? Baked! has that too. You can buy pints of ice cream and even ice cream cookie sandwiches. What else do you need?
So you messed up, and need to say I’m sorry to your luvah? Baked! has custom cakes that will more than make up for whatever you’ve done… maybe. These custom cookie cakes are perfect for birthdays, Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. No matter what the occasion, Baked! has the cookie cake for you.
If you find yourself wandering aimlessly down third street, stop into Baked! and pick up some cookies. The smell alone will get you drooling. Also, if you show your Monroe County Public library card you’ll 15% off anytime. If that’s not reason enough to get a library card, I don’t know what is.
