We don’t know what is it about cookies, but they surely hold a special place in our hearts. There’ll be bound to be some moments when that craving hits. Oh, and we’re not talking about the usual cookies from Subway. We mean those wholesome, freshly-homemade ones. The Circuit Breaker measures increased our stay-home time a lot more. While some of us continued doing what we’re doing, albeit in the comfort of our own home, some home bakers made use of this perfect opportunity to grow their businesses and had since seen success — with some of them planning to shift operations to central kitchens, and some already did.
Just what’s so good about these homegrown cookie brands? Well, looking at their reviews and photogenic bakes, we’re sure these bakeries are gonna satisfy your cookie crave.
Ordering from Whiskdom might be a huge challenge. They have an over 2000-pax wait-list with bake boxes getting sold out within minutes of a launch. We could totally see why. A bake box consist of 3 cookies and 3 brownies of different flavours (flavours are rotated, and vary weekly).
Imagine locally-inspired flavours like Tutu Kueh and Teh Tarik in the form of a molten-filled cookie. There you go, a flavour burst in every bite.
Fiona, the founder of Whiskdom is planning to ramp up her production capacity with a central kitchen really soon — it’s still fastest fingers first, but at least you’ll have a higher chance of getting a box in the near future.
Folks & Stories
Folks & Stories is not your typical confectionary. You can instead, refer them to a baked goods company & creative studio. Developing novel and interesting flavours, incorporating them using a rustic baking style and transforming them into super delicious gooey cookies is what they do.
N°1 Salt of the Earth is the first cookie they’ve created their cookie range had since expanded into other interesting flavours like N°17 Best Friend (yuzu cheesecake & brown butter) and N°11 Care Bear (strawberry cheesecake & crumble). These flavours don’t sound like the usual cookie. They feel like an ultra wholesome 3-in-1 dessert.
They sell out whenever they open order slots for a box of random cookies with same-day delivery. So, better hurry.
