Made with the Good Stuff

Since 1980, this family-owned and operated business takes pride in using the freshest ingredients in its cookies. And as a customer, you can see what goes into each recipe. Cookies are baked with things like Guittard chocolate, fresh whole eggs, creamery butter and pure vanilla extract so that the cookies taste like they just popped out of the oven. In other words, these are cookies made with love.

Ice Cream Makes Everything Better

They have cookie ice cream sandwiches. I repeat, they have cookie ice cream sandwiches. That’s right, Pacific Cookie Company carries delicious Marianne’s Ice Cream (selected as one of the best in the nation) to go along with their homemade cookie deliciousness. Not sure which cookie to choose? You can pick two different ones!

Loyalty Has Its Rewards

Pacific Cookie Company loves their loyal cookie customers. So much so, that they offer weekly promotions through their social media channels. And these aren’t your ordinary promotions – they are for FREE cookies. That’s right, follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, learn the word of the day – head to their cookie store, say the word and collect your cookie reward. Sometimes it's a BOGO deal, other times it's with the purchase of a beverage and sometimes it's just a fantastic, free cookie. Does this actually work you say? We can confirm it… a few of our staffers have tested out it at their downtown Santa Cruz location.
