ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Akiva Resnikoff worked in a variety of regular jobs in seriously un-regular Berkeley, California until one afternoon, during a dull, regular-company meeting, he hit on the original idea of the 'functional' treat while snacking on cookies and coffee. That day, the first purposeful cookie (and a fun, new, un-regular company) was born: the AWAKEN BAKED COOKIE and THE COOKIE DEPARTMENT.
There were risks, to be sure, but Akiva was finally ready to give it all up (the money, the prestige, and the attention of all the regular job ladies) and in late 2009 he officially launched THE COOKIE DEPARTMENT, where he is now COO.
Pam Marcus began her career as a pediatric physical therapist and she saw a need for healthy, environmentally friendly products for families. Her interest in health and all things wonderful lead her to co-found and become CEO of THE COOKIE DEPARTMENT after meeting Akiva and discovering a shared interest in all things Cookie.
Now THE COOKIE DEPARTMENT, with its inventive assortment of delicious and functional cookies, is the single-minded obsession of both Akiva and Pam's two great minds. They take great pride in running their company well, making amazing cookies, treating customers with respect, conducting endless meetings, looking very serious and carrying clipboards.
This cookie is your classic chocolate chip variety. The flavor is delicious, contains a hint of sea salt, and is not to sweet. The texture is soft and chewy. This cookie labeled "nookie" is because it contains the Peruvian Root, MACA which is believed to increase vitality in both men and women.
My tastebuds sure are grateful for trying this "Great Full" cookie. This is a vegan sweet potato, cranberry and oatmeal cookie. Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants, oatmeal high in fiber, and cranberries are high in potassium. This cookie taste like the holidays were baked straight into the batch. Lots of delicious vanilla and molasses flavor emanate from this soft and chewy cookie.
This is definitely the toughest cookie in the bunch as it contains the power of peanut butter! With an additional 10g of protein, this cookie is the ideal pre or post-workout treat. The texture is soft and chewy with a delicious creamy peanut butter flavor. How can you get any better then a cookie with peanut butter and protein? LEt me answer for you…. YOU CAN'T!
Snap Back to your old self after a strenuous night or day, with this delicious ginger detox cookie. This cookie contains natural detoxifiers like cayenne pepper, black strap molasses and ginger to help you get back on your two feet with a smile. This has to be one of my favorite cookies because it reminds me of ginger snaps growing up, which I love.
Take a delicious soft and chewy cookie and add espresso? Yes please! This is my ideal cookie right here, and the flavor couldn't be any more delicious. "Awaken Baked" is exactly what this cookie delivers with its perfect quotient of organic coffee, chocolate chips, and sea salt. The cookie is not over powering and has a delicious mocha flavor.
