          Those are mine, too. That would be in St. Paul, MN, on Selby. I see that the OP has posted this same query on several other boards, so, hopefully s/he is willing to travel, wherever s/he is.

            My Great Harvest is on Maple in Commerce Township. MI.

          Delicious tho Great Harvest cookies may be, there's gotta be a pound of butter in each one. Never had a cookie with so much grease. On the other hand, why have any other cookies when you can have this one?

        3. I'm anxiously awaiting the MSP state fair cookies to go with a cold glass (or three) of milk. They are always good for a sugar rush. I need to try the Great Harvest Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies as well, but my current favorites (Oatmeal Chocolate Chip) are from Potbelly.

            1. My current favorites in MSP are at Salty Tart in the Midtown Global Market and the ones from Rustica (imagine that...me loving something from Rustica!)

                  I'll have to remember that for the next "anzac cookies" thread. Ha Ha...funny me.

                  I agree. Honestly, besides a plain croissant later in the morning, I've never once had anything there that I didn't totally enjoy. I was there this morning and it was impossible to choose.

              1. You're in NYC?! You are near the very best cookies ever - Jacques Torres. Chewy with crispy edges, fabulous chocolate chunks, no nuts. Amazing. I stop every time I'm there. In fact, I think I need a plane ticket now...

                  Mmmm...yes. Jacques Torres, best purchased cookie I've had (and that includes Tom's Mom's!). Just had a Jacques Torres cookie last week, in fact - but not in NYC. Rather, right here in Northern Michigan (Traverse City, specifically). Imagine the fortune of us Michiganders having Mr. Chocolate open up a shop right in our own backyard! Yum. Book that ticket to TVC, latte! : )
