In Need of A Sugar Hit? Try Campitelli's Cookies
And it's nothing to look at from the outside, just an average sandwich shop (selling average sandwiches, I might add).
There are around a dozen varieties. They're all addictive, but the winners are undoubtedly the toffee and the macadamia nut with white chocolate chips, both crammed with top-quality fillings. The oatmeal raisin and the more unusual chocolate chip walnut are also pretty good, while the peanut butter has the perfect salt-to-sweet ratio. The cinnamon sugar, with no filling, is pure unadulterated stodge. Heaven.
Texture-wise, they're soft--some might say too soft, in which case a half-hour in the fridge does the trick. Just don't leave them there over a long weekend by accident (a hypothetical situation, of course)--they'll be rock hard when you return.
In a world gone franchise crazy, it's refreshing to see this kind of place surviving.
