!fun news! We have just opened 2 "Cookie Nooks" in Shanghai- one inside of Just Grapes on Anfu and Wulumuqi Lu, and another inside of Coffee or Tea on Xiangyang Bei Lu and Changle Lu! We still have our cookie shop/headquarters on Panyu Lu, but these are our official outposts where we either send fresh cookies daily, or bake right onsite. The idea was to do something simple in order to get more cookies to the fine people of Shanghai, and with each nook offering all or most of our 13 flavors, we think we're headed in the right direction!
(a big thank you to Celia M-H and Caroline Tan for designing these for us!)
Recent price adjustments
You may have noticed our prices were adjusted on December 1st to reflect the increasing prices of ingredients and labor in Shanghai. We are happy and proud to provide you with the highest quality cookies Shanghai has to offer, and our ingredients and staff reflect that commitment. Over the past three years, as I'm sure you noticed, things have gotten a lot pricier in our fair city, and as a price conscious person myself, I totally understand that this is no small thing. But I am committed to this company, and the team that runs it and the delicious cookies that power it, and so in order to keep doing what we do to the best of our ability, our cookie prices need to adjust in order to remain consistent with these changing times. PLEASE feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns- firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanksgiving Cookie Box!
Thanksgiving week aka Sweet Potato Marshmallow Cookie time is upon us! Inspired by the classic sweet potato casserole dish that was definitely at the first Thanksgiving, these cookies are made with roasted sweet potato, topped with gooey marshmallows, and sprinkled with brown sugar.
I know I know, you’re thinking, “oh, but maybe I’ll make the dessert this year” and please know that I support you in all of your baking endeavors. But just a few quick things: Did you know that 15 people accidentally maim their loved ones in pie-baking related incidents annually? And 25% of all marriages where one spouse makes a pie for special occasions end in divorce? One fact that surprised me was that people who bake pies tend to be generally “doomed” and most animals react to them by shrieking and scampering away, much as if they had seen a ghost? So weird.
I tooootally understand if you still want to do it because it’s fun and festive and whatnot, but I just wanted to give you both a heads up and an alternative.
So if you don't want to risk it, why not try our Thanksgiving Cookie Box? Available Nov 21-27, and filled with five Sweet Potato Marshmallow and four Pumpkin Spice cookies - for RMB108. Purchases can be made via our website or WeChat: StrictlyCookies完全曲奇, but must be placed one day in advancebecause these puppies are baked to order. (But if you have any last minute cookie needs/emergencies, we still offer one hour delivery on our other products to the downtown area via wechat:)
Happy almost Thanksgiving! And keep your eyes on our wechat and instagram accounts (@strictlycookies) for a chance to win a Thanksgiving Box with your wit, charm and beauty.
hey guess what?!
now we deliver cookies ALL DAYS OF THE WEEEEEEK!!!! We decided it was just cruel to be closed on Sundays, so now we aren't ;)
Newsletter: Introducing our Pumpkin Spice Cookie of the Month!
Fall is here! Mostly! Apart from a quick, June-esque typhoony rain situation last week, I’d say we’re pretty much in the throws of some of the prettiest days in Shanghai. To celebrate all that Fall has to offer- roasted chestnuts, sweet potato cauldrons, what seems to be a bi-weekly tree massacre- we offer up ye olde Pumpkin Spice cookie.
Now I know I know, everything these days has to have a dash of pumpkin in it: lattes, Tom Hanks, All Days’ sushi (not a joke. ate it yesterday.). This cookie, you might think, just adds to what is already a tired list. But you are wrong! THIS IS NO NORMAL PUMPKIN TREAT!
We first roast the pumpkin in what people in the industry like to call an “oven”. We then add it to a dough sprinkled with various spices, pop it back in the heat box (industry slang for oven) and chant while cross-eyed until it is done. The result is not your typical pumpkin-y product that screams I AM PUMPKIN I WILL JOIN THE FORCES THAT SHOVE APPLES INTO YOUR BASKET, PAINT THE LEAVES CRAZY COLORS AND FONDLE YOU WITH WIND. Nah nah. This pumpkin creature offers a faint tickle of Fall, much like a crisp breeze that gives you a knowing glance and whispers Fall ;) in your slightly-but-not-overly-chilled ear. Das what's up.
So if you’d like to dip a toe in the season that has until recently played a little hard to get, look no further than our Crisp Fall Breeze Pumpkin Spice Cookie Moment. Why not add a 50g container of cream cheese frosting for 10 rmb while you're at it? No pressure, just think about it.
But yeah, welcome to Fall. I'm into it.
