Berger Cookies in Northern Virginia?


I am from just north of Baltimore, MD, where Berger cookies are pretty easy to find.

I will be moving to the northern Virginia area (Centreville) and was wondering where, if any place, would I be able to find Berger cookies in the area?

If anybody has any ideas, then it would be greatly appreciated.

  1. All the Costco in MD carry them in bulk, so you may want to check the NoVa stores. Although since the cookies are so laden with chocolate frosting, their weight may cause them to sink to the bottom of the Potomac in transit... :-)

      Berger cookies freeze extremely well, so that is a good option for Costco members.

      Otherwise, the Italian Store in Arlington has Berger cookies, as well as Martin's chips, another Baltimore favorite.

    2. This isn't NOVA, but Wagshal's in Bethesda has them.

      1. I will be traveling from the Centreville area to BWI airport over the weekend, and was planning on parking in a lot on West Nursery Road.

        It looks like there is a Royal Farms nearby in Linthicum Heights, MD. Does anybody know if they sell Berger cookies? If not, is there a known place nearby that does sell them?

        1. What exactly are these cookies? I went on their website but they didn't have much of a description and the picture was a little blurry.

            From Wikipedia: "It is a buttery vanilla wafer topped with thick creamy chocolate."

            The chocolate fudge on top is usually just as thick (if not thicker) than the cookie part itself, and they are delicious!

              Yes, as RetawGnirps says, they are a delicious vanilla cookie with thick chocolate frosting. Basically the typical frosting-to-cookie ratio is inverted with a Berger cookie, which sounds like it would be awful but they are delicious. If you are a chocolate lover, they are a must-try.

            2. It's been a few years since I lived in NOVA, but the Italian Store in Arlington on Key Highway often had them. Give them a ring to see if they're still in stock.

                I was at the Italian Store just this weekend, and they had plenty of Berger Cookies in stock. Also, Rocklands Barbeque in Alexandria occassionally has them (suggest calling ahead for this one).
