Cookies. Big or small, crunchy or chewy, they’re all a delight with a glass of milk.
It was said that the first chocolate chip cookie was invented in 1937 by Ruth Graves Wakefield of Whitman, Massachusetts. Prior to that, cookies were apparently baked as test cakes to test the oven temperature.
Besides Pepperidge Farms, Famous Amos and Subway, here are 10 places to get your hands on some freshly baked ooey gooey circles of joys.
1. Saved By The Cookie
Priced at RM5.80 per piece, these soft cookies are oozing with enough chocolate to save you from life’s stresses. Weighing at 100 grams per cookie, that’s one dense pile that’s crispy on the outside but thick and gooey on the inside.
The love for cookies stemmed from the two founders’ first bite into a warm, chewy chocolate chip walnut cookie in New York City. Started in 2018, they now have up to 5 different cookies, namely the:
- Classic Chocolate Chip
- Dark Chocolate Sea Salt
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Oreo Chocolate Chunk
We heard their Double Chocolate Sea Salt and Oreo Chocolate Chunk cookies are to die for!
Tip: Heat up your cookies for about 20-30 seconds to achieve the indulgent gooey effect.

Today, they serve a wide variety of gooey chocolatey and delectable desserts made from cookie dough and brownie batter.
