This week, we set on the difficult task of reviewing the recently opened Insomnia Cookies, at 1319 Anderson Ave. From what we understood, they mostly served cookies and ice cream. God bless America.
Jon: When it came to atmosphere, the place was bare bones. Aside from the tables and bar seating at the window, there wasn’t much to look at. For a place that only serves dessert, it seemed fitting that the atmosphere matched the menu.
Tim: Nothing fancy. A couple tables spread out in the small storefront. A small counter displays the different varieties of cookies and ice cream. It’s homey, but in a good way. Very welcoming and comforting. While I was there, “The Zephyr Song” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers played over the speakers. Definitely my kind of place.
Jon: Wow. I knew this had to be the end game. Every decision in life that led me to a huge, warm chocolate chunk cookie that almost fell apart in my hands was a good one. Large, abundant chunks of melted chocolate were generously baked into the cookie.
Want to ensure world peace? Start handing these cookies out to everyone. They offered a variety of cookies like white chocolate macadamia, M&M’s and peanut butter chip. I didn’t opt for the cookie a la mode, though it was hard to resist the call.
Tim: Let me start by saying that any warm cookie with ice cream on top is heaven. Insomnia lets you wonder if there’s anything beyond heaven with their gooey, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chunk cookies. This is your grandma’s cookie, and it’s wonderful. I also decided to try a mint chip fudge cookie because I am a mint connoisseur, and I was not let down. The fudge and refreshing mint went well with the scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream on top of it all.
Jon: At $1.45 a cookie and $2.95 for a deluxe cookie, Insomnia certainly won’t hurt the wallet, and the cookies are definitely worth the price. I understand they also have delivery, which reinforces my belief that we live in the greatest country in the world.
Tim: For two cookies with ice cream on top I paid a little more than $7. While that’s not fantastic if you want to go all out, the price per cookie isn’t going to break the bank. Also, they deliver all day up to 3 a.m., so for not much buck, your late study session or after-Aggieville bacchanal can feature a sweet and delicious new treat arriving fresh and gooey at your door.
Jon: 5 stars out of 5
