Insomnia Cookies: A College Student’s Dream Come True

Insomnia Cookies: A College Student's Dream Come True

Sam Noonan, Staff Writer

Nearly everyone loves cookies, and isn’t it always better to have something sweet to eat while doing school work? Insomnia Cookies thrives through this idea, and it’s no surprise that their locations are in college areas. With locations in Lansing (MSU), Ann Arbor (U of M), and more, Insomnia Cookies satisfies the “midnight/3 AM snack” type of people – and yes, they are open that late. In fact, if you’re feeling lazy and don’t want to leave home for cookies, you can get them delivered right to your door. Who wouldn’t want warm, gooey cookies brought straight to you?

All locations keep the same theme; with a dark purple color scheme and a welcoming interior, this “cookie parlor” smells better than anything you’ve encountered before. Your cookie choices are displayed right in plain sight, with options for just about everybody; they even have vegan and gluten free cookies. They also offer “cookie sandwiches”, ice cream, and special deals. Cookies are available in bulk sizes, so if you’re willing to cough up $295 for 300 cookies, go right ahead.

After going to two locations, one in Lansing and the other in Bowling Green, I can safely say that Insomnia Cookies is a place anyone and everyone needs to go to. In Lansing, I chose to get their double chocolate chunk cookie. It was fairly well-sized and very melty and warm, not to mention soft and delicious. In Bowling Green, I opted for the chocolate chip brownie. The brownie came in a small box, which was a nice touch, and was the perfect size for one person. It was perfectly warm and gooey due to the melting chocolate chips, with a nice top layer holding everything together.

Insomnia Cookies is everything a college student (or anyone, really) could want and more, and my only complaint is that there isn’t a location closer to home. If you’re a soon-to-be college kid, or if you’re ever around one, I can’t recommend Insomnia Cookies enough.
