Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day be your profession. – unknown
There’s no doubt about it — I have sweet tooth! When friends ask me how am I fat/thicc because I don’t fancy rice, I always say it’s because I love sweets — chocolates, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies; you name it.
I have been craving for cookies lately (PMS, hello) and while I’ve satisfied it with another brand and discovered @1800cookiesltd a little late, I would honestly say their cookies really delivers to expectations.
Just a little background, @1800cookiesltd is a humble cookie kitchen that was founded by husband and wife, Pao and Miles. It rooted from Miles’ love for baking and it served as her bonding with Pao’s mom. It used to be a labor of love to give to relatives as gifts and also a side gig when the “ber” months are on. It still is a labor of love to this date but recently Pao also joined on to this baking business after his 17 years working in the BPO industry. The named came from their zip code 1800 and they consider themselves as a small humble kitchen where their love for what they do is being emanated upon. Their goal every time they bake is good vibes through cookies. They don’t want to be elitists where you can only taste their cookies if you have the means — they wanted to balance their business with their vision.
Enough words, right? Let’s lavish our eyes with what their cookies look like!
What I love about their cookies is the balance of crunchy and gooey. It isn’t too buttery and it isn’t too floury too. The elements of white chocolate and nuts also blends in so it has that “oof!” in your mouth.
Don’t take it from me if you don’t trust me, take it from all my teammates and manager that ate the cookies as well. They specifically said the cookies made them happy and I think it’s because of the amount of passion that was given by Miles and Pao. This batch of matcha could use a little extra matcha-ness in it but apart from that, they nailed the texture and balance. I specifically like cookies that aren’t too sweet as well — and this one has just the right amount of it!
