Thickys and Crunch Time

Last weekend we headed down to San Diego for a little getaway. Of course any travel for me must include sampling cookies! We happened upon the Third Avenue Farmer's Market and found Thickys. Randall (the inventor of Thickys) is an interesting character, and he concentrates on what he does well- pan cookies with chocolate chips, walnuts, and peanut butter chips topped with caramelized English toffee, English toffee in chunks, English butter toffee, or bacon. You can purchase by the pan on his website, and at the farmer's market, you can purchase individual squares. Prices are 1 square for $2 or 3 for $5 ($16 for a whole pan). Of course I bought three and did one of each kind except the bacon. I loved the chewy texture and thickness of the bars. Plus they were full of the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips with just the right amount of walnuts. The buttery flavor from the toffee was great, making these very hard to stop eating!

I also headed to Crunch Time, which was recommended to me by a friend. Right next to Petco Park, Crunch Time specializes in fancy popcorn and ice cream sandwiches. If you are craving sweet or salty, Crunch Time has you covered. I tried the chocolate fudge brownie cookie- soft, brownie like cookie with white chocolate chips. Delicious! At $2, the cookie was slightly overpriced, but next time I'm in town, I will plan my schedule so I can try an ice cream cookie sandwich.
