The 600 lb Gorilla Story

Ichocolate chip cookiet all started about 16 years ago…we spent many nights brainstorming potential business ideas over evening dessert, often ready-to-bake cookies.  Then the light bulb went off and we thought “these cookies really aren’t that good and there isn’t any other option - why not just make a high quality read- to-bake cookie. We can do for cookies what Ben & Jerry’s did for ice cream”  The first box of cookie dough was sold in 2000 and we have been selling ever since! A few years later at the request of one our retail buyers, we created our super premium ice cream sandwiches. He said “Nobody can seem to get the cookies right for an ice cream sandwich.  But you guys, you’re cookie people, bet you could make a great ice cream sandwich”  Boy was he right, we sold the first box of ice cream sandwiches in 2008 and have never looked back!

Our focus is to use the best premium all natural ingredients...

available and to bring better than homemade quality desserts into your home.  Our FROZEN ready-to-bake cookie dough balls are easy to prepare, and just as good as if you made them yourself. Our fans will claim they are even better!  Our Ice Cream sandwiches are made with REAL super premium ice cream sandwiched between two real butter cookies – proving to be the best available in the market!  After all, we were a cookie company first!

As a company we're dedicated to delivering premium quality desserts at a value!  We are still a small operation, not a BIG company with BIG overhead, so we can put the savings back into the ingredients, allowing us to give you a dessert you'd be proud to put your name on. (You can if you want. We'll never tell!)

As for the popular question, "where did the name come from", here’s the scoop.  As a small, unknown brand, we had to have something that was memorable, catchy and fun!!  After tossing around a number of zany and off-the-wall ideas we went with the name that was most appropriate. The one that was an ironic twist on both our diminutive size and our relative place among the cookie giants that would be our competitors...600 lb gorillas, what else???

Don’t be mistaken though, our small company has BIG ideas in providing premium quality products to you and your family. Quality and customer service is always our top priority!  We hope you are completely satisfied with our products but if not we want to hear from you.  Unlike large customer service centers your feedback comes right to our ears.  We want to please our customers and are confident our products and services will do just that!!!   Actually we would like to hear from you, good or bad!


Don't ever underestimate the impact potential of a "600 lb gorilla".
