Best cookies/brownies/treats that can be ordered online?

I need to send some treats to a business contact's office. I've done Cheryl and Co in the past but I'm looking for some other ideas. These are a bunch of hungry guys and so I'd like to get the best bang for my buck and it doesn't have to be gourmet but it does have to be good.

  1. I haven't tried them but I've heard good things about Love & Luxury Cookies. (www.loveandluxurycookies.com) They have one called the "Veezy" that's named after a friend of mine. It's a peanut butter cookie dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed Heath bars.

    1. first thoughts were Mariposa Baking Co. or Dancing Deer, but i did a little research for you...

      and finally, might be more upscale than what you're looking for, but you never know:

            Sent New York Brownies to my husband for Valentines Day, and they were great. Of the CI list they are the best bang for your buck, especially when you take weight into account, as they're about 4 ounces each. Two can easily split one of these brownies and be totally satisfied.

              I second the vote for Zingerman's magic brownies. Kind of pricey though.

          2. Have you ever checked out the Neilly's on foodnetwork? they travel around and find co. like this where you can order. I catch it every so often and love that they promote small businesses:

            It's a really nice range of different goodies, I'm always wanting to get off the eliptical or bike and go order!!!

              The Greyston Bakery in Yonkers has been baking brownies for Ben and Jerry's for years. You can order directly from them,
              www.greystonbakery.com.
              My personal favorite is the espresso brownie. Deeply chocolate with a coffee undertone. I think each brownie weighs a half pound. MMM.
              While you are there check out their mission to do well while doing good.

              1. A friend gave me some from Big Mamas Brownies and they were great. I have ordered around 5-6 pans (for gifts and for the family) in the last year. Always very good. Very moist and gooey. The best brownies I have ever had, and I ordered them online. High suggest you try them out.
