In the age of popular social media apps, there is bound to be a niche for everyone. This includes profiles of Instagram cookies. When I realized these existed, the discovery page of my Instagram quickly became consumed by grand, gourmet and gooey cookies, all thanks to a fitness coach I follow named Lauren First.
First is a fit cookie connoisseur and has tasted and rated various cookie companies, so I reached out to her regarding Instagram cookie companies as a whole. First is definitely a sweets person. When asked how cookies became a thing for her, she responded, “Cookies or donuts are easy access, cookies just came along when competing and there seems to be a lot more cookie companies out there.” When asked what company to try, she responded, “I’m down to try anything. Especially companies that do big gourmet cookies. I am a gooey cookie lover, a lot of filling or goo when pulled apart gets me.”
Girl, gooey gets everyone! Which is why I’ve compiled some Instagram cookie companies that will satisfy any craving. Instagrammers can’t get enough of photo worthy items, including food. Who remembers when food was a necessity to post? It’s an old trend and was often seen as annoying, but when it comes to Instagram cookies, it’s acceptable to allow the camera to eat before you do.
Instagram Cookie Companies You Need to Try
Bourbon Baekery has a fascinating story: The baker behind the name deferred her acceptance into law school to cater to her customers and expand the company. Bourbon Baekery cookies are like those homemade cookies that you can’t keep your hands off of. The company often rotates flavors but keeps their classics around, such as Circus Freak and Biggie Smallz.
Halfsies Cookie Company
Halfsies is the name and baking cookies in half is the game. Their feed is full of cookies cut in half so you can see what’s inside of every bite. And because of the sizes of the halved cookies, there’s no guilt. The company tends to sell out quick, so keep a close eye if you’re wanting to try.
Sweet is in the name so it has to be in the game! Haysweetie offers seasonal flavors along with their originals. This company showcases their cookies in an Insta-worthy way, as they’re dedicated to their creations via fun colorful photo ops. With fun names such as Cirque-de-licious and Pot of Gold, these cookies will make you want to create your own Instagram cookie photo op.
Mega-licious Cookie Co.
As their name suggests, these cookies aren’t just delicious: They’re megalicious. Mega-licious Cookie Co. bakes and decorates cookies that look like mini mountains, so the company name is a true representation of what’s prepared. Go through the Mega-licious feed to see what will be put out for the pre-orders, or just watch these cookies get cut in half.
PDX Cookie Co.
Gooey, thick and delicious, PDX Cookie Co. delivers each time by rolling out new flavors and bringing back popular cookies; for example, there’s currently an Instagram poll to bring back some old favorites. The company even makes edible cookie dough, and they’re in the process of opening a storefront in Montavilla, Oregon, set to open in March this year. Did someone say road trip?
Stacccked Creative Cookie Confections
Stack that all on the floor, stack that give me some more. Seriously, Stacccked takes stacking to a whole new level. These Instagram cookies are stacked with any topping you can dream of. They make original flavors as well as custom creations. You only need to scroll through their Instagram page to get an idea of how insane their cookies can get.
The Competitors Cookie Co.
‘Tis the season for cookies. The Competitor Cookie Co. creates menus of cookies for specific seasons, all while having a menu that’s consistent and named after their athletes. The bio section of their Instagram is where there’s information regarding orders for the month. So, if there’s a cookie seen on the spring menu that has your mouth watering — act on it. The massive sizes of the cookies are great for sharing, but no one will tell on you if you don’t.
But Wait, There’s More
There are a few more pages of Instagram cookies, such as LetzDoughIt, which is run by an intern at Disney World; Stuffed Cookies, which is based out of California; Worlds Best Dough, which is based in New York and does cookie dough inside cookies; and Duchess Cookies, which is also based in New York and is home of the designer cookie that cost around $1,000 — you know, the one that Foodgod almost dropped.
By this point, your taste buds should be watering, so I’ll wrap it up. What’s beyond fascinating about these companies is that each of them have their own stories. Whether it be deferring school, baking for a full-time business or doing it as a side hustle, the cookies show the dedication of their work each time.
Not only are the photos and captions fun, they can spark cookie cravings; but even more than that, those behind the accounts really make an effort to connect with customers. Whether it be polls, giveaways or discount codes, it seems as if there’s a dessert community on Instagram, where orders get capped in order to serve and bake fresh delicious cookies for their customers.
There’s no doubt that Instagram has made a market for almost anything. In need of something for an event like a wedding or anniversary? Be different and get some Instagram cookies. It’s just not possible to purchase these flavors and sizes in store. The majority of shoppers might think a cookie is just a cookie, but time and time again these companies have proved that that’s not the case. It is a dessert, a tradition and an icon in the array of snacks to choose from.
But if cookies aren’t your thing, don’t panic. There’s also an insane realm on Instagram for brownies!
