Their cookies are good conveyors. Want to congratulate someone? Scout’s Honor. Peace offering? Scout’s Honor. Want to just send your good thoughts with no specific occasion or reason? Scout’s Honor.
I’m 10000% sure that anyone who receives Scout’s Honor cookies for whatever occasion will be tremendously delighted. The flavors are creative and novel, and I feel that the recipient will feel that you think they’re special, as you could’ve gotten them generic cookies and yet you went out of your way to get something unique. Chef Miko Aspiras really established the craft cookie industry and made it his own. Before Scout’s Honor, I cannot name a cookie place that churned out very innovative flavors, nor a place with a “build your own cookie” service. We did not uphold cookie making to as high caliber of a craft as what it is now…
I mean look at these! Cookie Inception! Vegemite Compost! It’s like he took the goodness and sinfulness (wow the irony) of cookies and took the flavor creativity of gelato makers to come up with all these.
The cookies sometimes are no longer just cookies, but have become larger than life. Everytime I see this photo of their S’Mores Tag Alongs, memories of how good the meringue was come back to me. Gah, y so good, dear meringue?
My brother is gonna kill me for saying this here on the blog, but when he opened the box and saw their Red Velvet Inception, he was squealing with delight. Yes, a grown man squealing with delight, imagine that. Food coma, or cookie coma for that matter, then ensued.
