So darn jealous!!! Check out this site

post #1 of 56
Thread Starter 
These cookies are so simple, really nothing exciting if you ask me (not knocking them,,,,just saying skill-wise, not hard) and believe it or not, they expect a half a million dollars in sales this year!! Would you byy 12 cookies for $40? It's amazing they do business.....

I'll admit I'm just jealous - good for them, but wow.

These are actually very good, but pricey. Perhaps they were so good because 16 cookies was almost $50.

I saw some cookies on the CC homepage that were way more impressive than these the other day... They were had trees on them and were adorable..

I would so pay $40 for those not for the two tone boringness of these here..lol

I think The Black & White cookie company have about THE most annoying gallery I've ever come across online! Who thought that was a clever idea? icon_confused.gif

(Click the "Cookie Gallery" link on the right-hand side of the page to see what I mean...argh!!) thumbsdown.gif

Nice, simple cookies.

Like they say presentation and marketing is a major part of selling.

wow - very pricy...but I guess it's all in what you price - if you price higher and it's a quality product then I guess it's worth it!

um, there is a lot of technique involved. their cookies are slick and smooth. google "black and white cookies" and see photos of what a lot of other folks are selling. these look a LOT better.

I agree on that annoying gallery!

who in their right mind is going to pay $62.99 for 12 dipped berries & 8 cookies!? I'm sure they taste good but I don't see how something so simple is worth that amount of cash...no matter how beautiful the pkg (as per reviews on site)
