Too Good Gourmet on Lakeshore

MKatrinaToo | Oct 1, 2007 09:42 AM

Yesterday hubby and I saw the sign "Too Good Gourmet" in the location that was vacant for a long time after the closing of a restaurant (across from Long's Pharmacy, I think). Not knowing what to expect from the name, we walked in and were surrounded by.................boxes and boxes and boxes of cookies, all packaged in frou-frou to the max boxes. Pink boxes w/ bows and flowers, yellow boxes with ribbons, orangey boxes with inserts and pop outs.

There were samples laid out of the lemon powder sugar dusted cookies, brownies and chocolate mint cookies. I sampled everything--twice. There were also pretzels laid out, waiting for the dip mixes, which weren't out by the time I left.

Hubby bought a Halloween themed box of shortbread cookies for $1.00 and the pink box adorned with the bow and flower made of felt, with chocolate cherry cookies for $2.00. Cookies are not my thing, but I thought the cookies are okay. The brownie sample(s) I had I thought were dry, but sitting out on a Saturday morning without a cover can probably do that.

If cookies taste better when they come out of a fancy box, then this place is for you.
