Did you ever want to see what you’d look like as an item of food? Well, now’s your chance. The maker of Parker’s Crazy Cookies is now available bake up a batch of cookies in your spitting image.
These “You Cookies” are basic sugar cookies without frosting or sprinkles, described as a larger version of an animal cracker. But it’s said that the bakery does a really good job of creating cookies that “capture your very essence”—that’s according to the website urbandaddy.com where we first heard about this.
To order the cookies all you need is a photo and an email account. The owner, Dave Parker, will then create a doughy caricature of yourself, including things like facial hair, hat, or nose ring you might be wearing. The cost is around 80 cents per cookie in bulk, plus a $20 design fee. The minimum order is 150 cookies.
You can also order them divided into bags of 6 cookies per bag, each with a customized label, minimum order 25 bags priced at $4.99 per bag for smaller cookies, and $5.99 for larger cookies. The cookies will arrive in two to three weeks.
Sounds like a good way to kick off a political campaign, or add extra fun to a birthday or retirement party.
