Seriously, is there anyone out there who doesn’t love cookies? If there is, we haven’t met one yet. Not only are cookies delicious, eating them will just make you feel good (unless, of course, you eat too many and give yourself a stomach ache)! Here are seven reasons that cookies are not only good for your taste buds, they’re also good for your soul.
There are so many options and varieties
One of the absolute best things about cookies is the sheer variety. There is a cookie out there for everyone. Whether you like the classic chocolate chip, the healthy oatmeal raisin, the colorful sugar cookie, or even something that combines sweet and salty, no matter what your taste buds are craving, there is a cookie for you. Not only does this make cookies the perfect desert (they’re perfect for sharing!), it also means you’ll never get sick of them.
They’re perfect for on the go
Have you ever tried to take a piece of cake home from a restaurant or pack an ice cream cone in your lunch? It’s not so easy. One of the reasons cookies are so great are because they’re super easy to take with you anywhere, anytime. Put a few in a plastic baggie, and you’re good to go. Best of all, if you don’t eat them, you can bring them home and save them for later.
Their designs will make you smile
Cookies come in all shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors. People tend to get very creative with their cookie designs, and you can always find a cute cookie to make you smile. There are cookies with company logos, cookies decorated like fried eggs and bacon, cookies for sports fans, cookies for girly girls and everything in between. Whatever your interests are, you’re sure to be able to find a cookie that represents it.
They will help you make friends
Since cookies are the perfect portion size and because they’re so easy to take on the go, this means they are also the perfect dessert to share. Hand over a cookie to someone who looks like they could use a good snack or a little cheering up, and you’re sure to make a new friend for life.
There’s nothing better than a warm cookie right out of the oven
If you’ve ever eaten or smelled a cookie right out of the oven, you will know exactly what we’re talking about. If you’ve never had this experience then you are seriously missing out – there is nothing better. Gooey dough, warm chocolate, and the best. Smell. EVER! We can pretty much guarantee having a cookie right out of the oven will warm your soul and make your day.
Cookies and milk will remind you of your childhood
Ask anyone what dessert they remember most from their childhood, and there’s a good chance they’ll say cookies and milk. We’re not quite sure why cookies dipped in milk tastes so good, but we do know that as a kid, it was our favorite. Even though it’s not a desert that adults tend to eat as much (unless they’re eating it with their kids), we’re certain that any time you do, it will bring you right back to your childhood kitchen table.
You can feel like you’re eating something healthy (sometimes)
Just because you’re eating a cookie doesn’t mean you’re eating something that's not good for you. There are a lot of healthy cookie options out there. There are vegan cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, whole wheat cookies, and even breakfast cookies with grains, nuts, and dried fruit. If you think of cookies as only an unhealthy desert, well, think again!
