City Pulse

With the holidays rapidly approaching, and the parties abounding, many of us are apt to be savoring some exceptionally scrumptious seasonal treats. However, not many of those will give you food for thought as well as immediate sustenance. The exception may be found with Feed Your Soul cookies.

Mya and her sumptuous creations.

The company, founded by Mya Jacobson in 2004, has a philosophical as well as a nutritive mission. Each set of cookies comes with a carefully chosen philosophical quotation tailored to the occasion. The quotes come from figures ranging from Proust to Ghandi. Jacobson stated that with Feed Your Soul Cookies she tried to capture “everything I like in a gift” and the cookies are intended to act as reminder of life’s daily pleasures. They’ll surely make an excellent gift for anyone who wants to give their friends or co-workers a tasty holiday treat that’s more inventive than the standard candy cane fare.

Brownie + Cookie = Yummmm

The lovely packaging, complete with an oversized bow, also provides a feast for the eyes. And with delicious wintry flavors such as Gingerbread, Chocolate Chip Mint, Pumpkin Pie, S’mores, Chocolate Brownie Chunk, Strawberry Linzers and the new White Chocolate Cherry Jubilee, they’ll thrill even those who care more for taste than philosophy. Feed Your Soul Cookies allows senders the option to personalize a note, a quote and a donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity. Altogether, they’re something anyone searching for the perfect present can sink their teeth into.
