College is hard. In between trying to maintain a social life and good grades, we all deserve a break. What better way than to treat your self by satisfying your sweet cravings with a chocolate chip cookie? It's delicious, simple, inexpensive, and can be paired with just about anything. The question is...where can you possibly find the best chocolate chip cookies? You're just in luck! I've gathered my sources and have created a list of seven places on our FIU MMC campus where you can find delicious chocolate chip cookies that will put a smile on your face.

1. Market at Breezeway

Notoriously known as "crack cookies" by campus locals, these cookies are freshly baked every day. You can choose between chocolate chip, macadamia, and double chocolate. What's more? These cookies literally melt in your mouth AND are probably the cheapest things on campus. What are you waiting for?!

2. Chik-Fil-A

Besides their mouthwatering chicken sandwiches and groovy milkshakes, the "Eat Mor Chikin" chain carries one of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had. These ooey-gooey cookies are to die for. Literally. Not only are they about the size of your hand, but these cookies are totally Instagram worthy. I mean look at those chocolate chunks. What more could you ask for? *insert drooling emoji*

3. Subway

If you're trying to stay on campus, then I think most would agree that you really can't go wrong with a cookie from Subway. Not only are they decently sized (and reasonably priced), but they're so soft. Not to mention, they do have other flavors, but chocolate chip is always the best. Pair it with a sub (2 come with a combo) or get it alone. You will not be disappointed. 

4. Starbucks

This one is for all my coffee fanatics. Have you ever gotten anything at Starbucks besides coffee? (Well I do hope so). Don't know what to try first? Then I highly recommend tasting their chocolate chip cookie. It's big enough to share with a friend and has a very decadent taste. Because it's really sweet, and maybe overwhelming for some, I recommend pairing it with a strong coffee - not a frappe - unless you want a sugary overload. But hey, no one is stopping you!

5. Pollo Tropical

First thing that typically comes to mind here is chicken and TropiChops. But, Pollo actually introduced chocolate chip cookies to their menu about 2 years ago and they. are. good. Super soft, chewy, and the perfect amount of sweet to satisfy your cravings. It also pairs perfectly with any meal. 

6. Burger King

Burger King cookies may not be at the crack cookie level, but that doesn't make them any less of a cookie. They're still delicious and fulfill their purpose! Additionally, Burger King is conveniently located in the Graham Center which would save you a lengthy walk to Breezeway, which is practically on the other side of campus. Who cares about burning calories anyway? 

7. COMING SOON FALL 2019: Panera Bread 

That's right, you read that correctly. Panera is coming to campus in the fall! As we bid farewell to Einsteins and cherish all of the memories made, we will soon welcome one of my favorite chains. Not only does Panera have amazing mac and cheese, but they carry some of the best pastries I've ever had...including chocolate chip cookies. As seen below, this cookie is huge and pairs perfectly with milk...a classic. Share with a friend, or have it all for yourself. I don't know about you, but I certainly can't wait for fall! 

Why are you still standing there? It's time to get your wallet out and try one of these as your reward for studying every single day of the week!
