Last night, I had the pleasure of visiting the new Insomnia Cookies location located in Irvine, CA. I've always wanted to try Insomnia Cookies. I've heard about them and seen them around as I'm interested in chain establishments. Insomnia Cookies started in Philly at UPenn; it was born out of a dorm room and quickly expanded to the place we know today.
Insomnia Cookies specializes in delivering cookies and other goodies until 3 AM. They have over 160 locations and are still growing. Other items include cakes, brownies, wiches (ice cream sandwiches), ice cream, and milk. You can order cookie pack with multiple cookie quantities. Insomnia Cookies also ship nationwide in case you want to send something special (and delicious) to someone who loves high quality baked goods.
The store is in a prime location in University Town Center, an open plaza across from UC Irvine. This is an excellent location for Insomnia Cookies due to the foot traffic from the students and the ease of delivery to universities in the area. Caramel Apple Pie, a seasonal flavor, is a LTO so better stop on by (or order) if you want to get your hands on the perfect fall treat.
Traditional flavors include Chocolate Chunk, Classic w/ M&M's, Double Chocolate Chunk, Double Chocolate Mint, Oatmeal Raisin, Peanut Butter Chip, Snickerdoodle, Sugar, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Vegan/GF Chocolate Chip (in select markets). Deluxe flavors include Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, S'mores, and Triple Chocolate.
There were a lot of young kids and students that were in the establishment when I got there, which was around 6:30. I did not get to try the first picture that I got, which was a Double Chocolate Chunk cookie with Circus Animal ice cream. I gave it to my mother and she said it's very delicious. However, I got to try this nice sammy that you see above, which is mint chocolate chip ice cream in between two Double Chocolate Mint cookies. Such a nice atmosphere but what's even better is the delivery option (until 3 AM!) in case you don't want to leave your place. Food delivery is a rising trend in today's society and I can see Insomnia Cookies lasting a long time due to the offering of late night cookie and sweets delivery.
Insomnia Cookies has a cookie dough loyalty program, an amazing way to earn points for free cookies. You can also purchase gear and gift cards on their site. Also, they offer catering and event options. Thank you so much to Insomnia Cookies for allowing me to venture to a place I haven't been to yet and for allowing me to try your delicious products. This made me very happy because *warm* cookies (with ice cream) are life!
ALSO - grand opening on Saturday Sept. 28 from 1 - 3 with balloons and fun giveaways!
