Are Craig’s Cookies The Best Cookies In Toronto?

Everybody Is Talking About Craig’s Cookies

One search on the Google about Craig’s Cookies in Toronto and you’ll find raving reviews, mad props from local media, and pictures of one of the coolest bake shops around.

But are these cookies really as good as everyone says they are? Let’s bite into it a little bit and you can decide for yourself.

What Goes Into The “Best Cookies In Toronto?”

A lot of the ingredients in Craig’s cookies are available pretty much anywhere you go. It’s the concoction and combinations that make them so special.

Before opening his first shop, Craig Pike of Craig’s Cookies had been baking out of his home while also balancing an acting career, delivering orders by bicycle, and selling goods at markets. Craig sold his cookies at markets like Parkdale and Bellwood’s Fleas.

The combinations that he created and the smashing together of all of his various ingredients were so darn delicious that he caught the attention of cookware giant and luxury home brand Williams Sonoma.

Recognition of this type helped to create a real buzz around Pike’s creations. Because of this, he’s received different types of exposure, like a series of pop-ups at Yorkdale Mall.

The flavours that he creates, and the magic-in-your-mouth effect, comes from a combination of his mother’s recipe and super high quality flour, with a mashup of Mars Bars and Easter eggs. You can get Hershey chocolate chips, as well as Oreo cookies and even Kellogg pop tart flavours.
