It’s time again for another event full of sugar-addled, insulin-deficient fun. It’s time for our Cookies and Cream Extravaganza! How long has it been since you’ve been in the presence of something this awesome? Since the last time we took an amazing sugar-trip together in the form of Donut Fest? It’s been entirely too long friends. Think of Cookies and Cream like a sequel to that. Any sequel but

Phantom Menace. Never Phantom Menace. There will be cookies. There will be cream. There will be fun.

In addition to more sugar than any sane person would dare turn down, there are going to be plenty of other mmmm-azing things to do. Sean Peoples will be DJing and King Street Bluegrass will be bluegrassing. There will be board games, skeeball, cornhole and more.

No ankle-biting, crumb snatchers allowed (this is a 21+ event) so feel free to let your inner child run free. To get you in the Cookies and Cream holiday spirit, we interviewed a few of the sugar connoisseurs to give you a little insight into just what it takes to make a Cookies and Cream champion. Get your tickets before it’s too late! We look forward to seeing you there!

What is your signature treat?

The chocolate chip cookie is kind of the flagship concept. All of our cookies are crunchy on the outside, chewy on inside so they taste like the perfect cookies. They’re unique because we don’t use eggs, but they taste the same as traditional cookies. I hate eggs. I don’t want to look at eggs.

What treats are you bringing Saturday?

Cookies. We have 4 flavors at the store. We’ll be bringing, chocolate chip, double chocolate chip oatmeal, and peanut butter is the newest one.

Real or fictional, who is our dream celebrity endorsement?

Bethany Frankel. I really love her. If she would endorse our product I would be over the moon. I don’t care, I just want everybody to like our cookies. We’ve had a few celebrities eat our cookies before. Britney Spears had them once.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the Cookie Monster?

He doesn’t need advice, He just likes to eat cookies. Never change cookie monster

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the Cookie Monster?

Shake Shack

What is your signature treat?

We’re all about the frozen custard. Spun at ridiculous speeds, it’s smoother, creamier and richer than regular ice cream. Enjoy it straight up as a cup or cone or try it in a delicious shake, float or concrete.

Each month features a custard calendar of daily rotating flavors. A few August highlights: Blueberry Sweet Corn, Caramel Popcorn and Strawberry Cheesecake.

What treats are you bringing Saturday?

We’ll be scooping up Chocolate Chip Cookie Frozen Custard, our spin on Grandma’s classic recipe.

Real or fictional, who is your dream celebrity endorsement?

Can’t go wrong with Aziz Ansari: “One of the big things I miss about New York is not my friends so much; it’s Shake Shack, the burger place. I miss Shake Shack.”

What’s one piece of advice you would give to the Cookie Monster?

Fewer cookies, more custard.

Keep eating and never go to the dentist.
