chewy cookie goodness in {san diego}...



Here's a little story about my encounter with a cookie called 410 Degrees. During a routine trip to the Hillcrest Farmer's Market, I came across the 410 stand and found myself lusting after their round doughy delights. There were only a few cookies left before they were about to sell out for the day. So, I stood in line patiently hoping I'd be one of the lucky few to scoop one of their last treasures. Just as I was about to order the ONE remaining cookie, a girl got in line in front of me to buy said cookie {the line was disorganized so I don't totally blame her}. However, I was not about to let the cookie get away from me and piped up that I had in fact been in line and that last cookie was mine. She thankfully retreated and bowed out as I did not want to a girl fight to ensue over a cookie. However, the almost-fight was certainly worth it for the cakey, chewy delight that would soon follow.

While I'm certainly a fan of a soft, chewy cookies, 410 Degrees takes soft and chewy to a whole other level. Almost like a cake in cookie form, they specialize in fun mixtures and concoctions which you can choose on your own {if ordered online} or choose from some of their tried and true favorites. My favorites are the Confetti Birthday Cake Cookie {top middle}, PB Oreo {top right}, and the traditional chocolate chip {bottom left}. The Pancakes and Bacon {shown bottom right} was interesting but not my favorite of the bunch. These cookies may not look extra special or fancy, but they sure are a treat I'd gladly battle over any day.
