The holiday season is already a great time to celebrate cookies, but did you know there’s also a special day just for the treat during the month of December?
Today, Dec. 4, is officially National Cookie Day and that means not only is it completely appropriate to eat cookies for breakfast (and lunch … and dinner), but a handful of restaurants are celebrating by giving out freebies or offering discounts.
From fast-food chains like Subway to online companies you can order dozens of cookies from, take a look at just some of the restaurants and shops celebrating National Cookie Day.
Cheryl’s Cookies is offering discounts for National Cookie Day with code HNCD at checkout. You can save $20 off a purchase of $60, $30 off a purchase of $80 or $50 off a purchase of $150.
The retailer is also offering up to 50% off select holiday gifts on Dec. 4 only. Just one gift marked down by 50% is this frosted cookie crate, now priced at $49.99 for 50 cookies, making them just $1 each.
