Berger Cookies Holiday Tins



catch of the day fish (2)I’ll admit it. Every year, right around November, get a wellspring of ambition as the holidays approach. I’m going to finally send out a holiday card this year. I’m going to make and purchase the most thoughtful, lovely gifts my family has every seen. I’ll make truffles and cookies and fudge and send them to friends across the country.

Berger Cookie Factory Is Shut Down, But We Know One Place You Can Still Buy Them…



Thanks to a FDA report citing “violations” at the factory where Baltimore’s iconic Berger cookies are made, no one has been able to get their fudge-coated chewy cookie fix in Baltimore for several weeks now. (The city shut the factory down on January 31.) If you’re really desperate, though, we have one potential solution:

No One Outside of Baltimore Should Be Allowed to Eat Berger Cookies


First, Baltimore’s beloved fudge-topped cookie pillows expanded to D.C., and found a bunch of snobs: “Is this cosmopolitan region really ready to embrace a cookie that admittedly looks as if its fudge creme topping was slapped on by 5-year-olds hopped up on Mountain Dew?,” Andrew Reiner wrote in the Washington Post.
