Lots of them.

And they are coming to Burlington.

Craig’s Cookies, born in Toronto and rapidly spreading with locations across Ontario, will arrive in Burlington this summer and with it will come about 100 cookie varieties meant to please the taste buds of every biscuit connoisseur.

Launched by actor Craig Pike in 2013 as a way to earn some extra cash, he used his mother’s East Coast recipes to create his first batch and turned to the emerging Instagram to spread the word of his creations.

The response was immediate and Pike soon found himself traveling around the GTA to deliver his goods. Since he opened his first store he hasn’t looked back and franchises now exist in Collingwood and Niagara-On-The-Lake with Hamilton and now Burlington on the horizon.

Set to open at 501 Brant Street at the former location of Book Nook, customers can expect to munch on flavours both traditional and unique.

From chocolate chip, shortbread and white chocolate macadamia, you can also expect to find cookies such as apple pie, Nutella-filled and butter tart as well as several chocolate bar-inspired flavours such as Reese’s Pieces, Snickers, Twix and Toblerone.

You will also find cookies created for special occasions such as Pride events, birthdays, and holidays. Nut-free varieties are available, too.

All the creations — and there will be other dessert items available — will be made on-site and baked fresh daily.

Large batches can be ordered in advance and delivery is available.

A July opening is expected.

The store opening was announced on Craig’s Cookies Instagram account where it was noted that job opportunities are available. You can send your resume to [email protected].
