Promises, promises, promises. Let’s be honest, we all make promises to better ourselves but not all of us follow through. According to Statistic Brain– only 8% of resolution makers succeed, and this isn’t shocking anyone. Starting just a few days into January 2016 and continuing throughout the month your newsfeed was most likely inundated with articles, compilations, and jokes about new years resolutions and how easy they are to break. E! trolled twitter to find their favorite resolution breakers, Jimmy Kimmel dedicated a whole hilarious segment to it, and the New York Times attempted to debunk the myths surrounding your well-intended goals.
We’re not going to do any of that.
We’re going to take 10 of the most popular resolutions made every January 1st and make it easier for you…and show you how Carol’s can help!
Resolution #1. Work out more
Our cookies weigh nearly a half-pound each! Let’s not discount the workout you get every time you bring one of our monster cookies to your lips – it’s some serious iron pumping. But if you really want to step it up, hold two Carol’s Cookies in each hand and do as many reps of curls, rows, and shoulder presses as you can. Then treat yourself with a sweet reward for all your hard work.
Resolution #2. Eat healthier, whole foods with ingredients you understand
Our cookies are handmade in small batches using only premium ingredients. Barry Callebaut Chocolate, select California raisins, rolled oats, pure cane sugars and 100% real butter are a few things you will find in our handmade cookies. In fact, we still crack our own farm fresh eggs every morning. Want the full list of our ingredients? See here.
Resolution #3. Travel more
What better road trip than going to across the country to visit a new Whole Foods location, or a fresh spot for lunch (may we recommend Yats, RJ Grunts, or Epic Burger) where when you arrive you can be comforted by our delicious cookies?
Resolution #4. Give more/be more generous
Break that Carol’s cookie in half! Or at least into fourths….and then give ¼ away. See, you’re being generous. It is YOUR cookie after all.
Resolution #5. Save more money
Buy our cookies in bulk of course! You can order a bulk shipment of our cookies right to your door! 36 individually wrapped cookies for under $100! Luckily, our cookies freeze fantastically.
Resolution #6. Learn something new
Have you seen our YouTube Page? We have a collection of videos just waiting to teach you a thing or two in the kitchen from Carol herself. Whether you want to know how to make a cookie pie crust or cookie pizza, we are there to educate.
Resolution #7. Shop local
Our cookies are each made by hand in a small, privately owned bakery. Carol started baking in the Midwest and the Midwest is still where she (and her cookies) calls home. Give our bakery a call on any day, and the odds are, Carol will be the one answering the phone. We’re that local.
Resolution #8. Stop smoking
Put down the cigarette and you might struggle with idle hands. Just pick up one of our cookies to fulfill your craving.
Resolution #9. Improve a relationship
Maybe your boss is annoyed at the amount of times you’ve been “stuck in traffic.” A friend has been icy since you forget her birthday? Or, you’re planning ahead for the possible argument on Valentine’s Day? Whatever relationship is strained, our cookies can help patch that up in no time. Who can stay mad at someone when they’ve been given one of our handmade cookies?
Resolution #10. Eat less sweets
We can’t help you there, and you wouldn’t want us to! Why would you ever want to eat less sweets?
