teeny cookies as decoration

tiny cookies decorating a straw for a chocolate milkshake

Yesterday I talked about some teeny tiny cookies and in the comments Suswhit mentioned a restaurant that uses them to decorate straws for milkshakes. Adorable! Luckily I have good milkshakes nearby and tried it out. I can tell you that these cookies just barely fit on the thinner style drinking straws. I wish I’d thought to get some whipped cream and sprinkle matching nonpareils on top.

    I seriously did not think the teeny cookies could get any cuter. Clearly, I was wrong.

    I will be looking for these at Wegmans as soon as we are plowed out!

    What is this Potbelly’s? Googling it came up with a whole lot of different restaurants.

    So very very many Potbellys in DC. Chain, sandwiches, sort of a Subway or Quiznos but quirkier and bigger with more decor and seating, and they have smoothies/shakes with little cookies decorating the straws.

    Meaghan – thanks! It’s been ages since I was in DC, next time I’m there visiting family I’ll demand a trip.

    Regan – This magical chain restaurant – how do we not get these?! (I’m looking at you too, Sonic.)

    love potbellys! and the shakes are totally yum. Something so whimsical about the cookie. Love it!!

    That is really cute. I think I have a cookie cutter small enough to make something like these. I will have to experiment, because I’ve never seen the cookies in the stores.

    everyone beat me to telling you that it’s potbelly! oh well. here’s their site:

    they’re all over DC, and very awesome. the one thing that hasn’t been mentioned yet is that the teeny cookies they put on their milkshake straws are just regular non-iced, non-sprinkled cookies (see? still delicious! but your photo does look much cuter. :)
