Subway Introduces Foot-Long Cookie For National Cookie Day
Subway has introduced a foot-long cookie in honor of National Cookie Day, which is celebrated annually on December 4th. Subway even has a pop-up store in Miami called “Cookieway.” They’re anticipating such a popular response that the foot-long cookie will be a permanent part of their menu in 2024. It sounds like a delicious way to ring in the new year.
According to the Food and Wine website,
On December 4, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Subway will transform its location in Calle Ocho in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood into its cookie-only pop-up, Cookieway. There, they will whip up cookie creations said to be “inspired by the Subway Series signature subs.” The results feature a footlong cookie base covered with a range of toppings in four varieties — from the very sweet to the very strange. (There will be pickles.)
Most of the cookies will be precisely what you would expect, but for those who have permanent munchies, they’re offering a unique pickle cookie. Food and Wine describes it this way;
The Great Pickle — which is billed as the “most unique cookie on the menu” — offers “sweet and savory cookie layers both peanut butter and marshmallow crème on top of a vanilla sugar cookie base, topped with salty potato chips, savory bacon crumbles, and Subway’s brand new dill pickles.”
So, what exactly is National Cookie Day? This day is all about indulging in delicious cookies and celebrating the joy they bring. People often bake and share cookies with friends, family, and colleagues to celebrate this special day. It’s an excellent opportunity to try new cookie recipes or enjoy traditional favorites.
We all have a favorite cookie. My husband is a chocolate chip cookie fanatic. My favorite is the iconic Mallomar, which you can read about here. Another favorite is the Black and White Cookie, which comes in a blue and white variety to celebrate Hanukkah.
According to Chompies.com, the Black and White cookie has quite an exciting history;
The cookie is believed to have been created by Glaser’s Bake Shop, opened in 1902 by Bavarian immigrants in Manhattan. Many others believe the cookie began as “half-moon” cookies served at Hemstrought’s Bakery in Utica, New York. While it’s hard to tell where these cookies’ roots lie, each story shares one common element: they come from German food traditions.
While these cookies have seemingly been around forever, it wasn’t until the 1940s and 1950s that they became famous. During and after WWII, American soldiers reintroduced the cookie to Germany, which inspired the name “Amerikaner.” The term is derived from the shape of Brodie helmets worn by U.S. soldiers during the World Wars.
The ultimate cookie lover is the beloved Sesame Street character, Cookie Monster. He was a blue, affable character who loved cookies. His favorite cookie, by far, was the chocolate chip cookie. According to Wikipedia, a source I’m willing to quote because we’re talking about a friggin Sesame Street character, the beloved muppet, who revealed his real name in a 2004 song and later in a 2017 interview. Cookie Monster’s real name is “Sid.” Mind blown.
So now you know some fun facts about cookies, and it’s time to celebrate this important holiday by eating your favorite cookies and serving them to loved ones. Happy National Cookie Day from Fl Jolt!
