17. Cookie Quality:
Our cookies are freshly baked all day every day. For nationwide orders our cookies are carefully packaged into individually sealed bags for absolute freshness, before being placed in our boxes and tins. These are then packaged into one of our delivery boxes, security sealed and sent on a “fragile” overnight service.
There may be slight variations in appearance from images shown on our website and/or social media platforms. If you are ordering a batch of cookies there will always be a variation in appearance of each cookie as each one is hand made.
