David's Cookies is one of the few in the industry that has delicious chocolate desserts down to a science. It’s a rare skill to be able to make commercial cookies look and taste like they’re homemade.
It all started with a notion to bring the West Coast tradition of boutique cookie shops to the Eastern U.S. In 1979, a New York City top chef named David Liederman decided he wanted to do just that, focusing on the example that California was setting with its sale of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies throughout the state. Thus, the first David Cookies store was opened in Manhattan. David’s became popular for its creatively shaped cookies and the chunks (yes, chunks) of chocolate inside them. Having been educated at some of the best culinary schools in France, Liederman began exploring with his knowledge until he happened upon a recipe for cookies that both looked and tasted “just like mamma made!” These fresh-from-the-oven treats brought David’s huge success, making the business well known to the Northeastern U.S. Soon, David’s’ popularity spread across the country, leading to the company’s receipt of many awards for its best chocolate desserts. This included the NY Newsday "Cookie Award" for the Best Chocolate Chunk Cookie. Within six years, David’s had become an international franchise and boasted more than 250 cookie shops worldwide.
With the mid-to-late 1980s came rising operating costs, causing many of the David's Cookies stores to close. Soon, Liederman sold his company to Fairfield Gourmet Foods Corporation, a gourmet dessert business that is still based in New Jersey. Fairfield gave David’s new life by incorporating its top quality cookies and frozen cookie dough into the worlds of food service and co-branding. In the late 1990s, Fairfield developed an online cookie store to market its David products. Now, David Cookies leads the way for Internet sales of freshly baked cookies. The brand has continued to win more awards, and was named as one of Good Housekeeping Magazine’s "10 Best Mail-order Goodies for Giving (or Serving)" in December of 2007 in honor of its mini cheesecake delicacies. David’s is also making a growing presence in the gift-giving industry with its gift basket selections and other such novelties.
David’s uses all natural ingredients, including butter, pure vanilla,
whole nuts, and Swiss chocolate. Most of its products are also
Certified kosher dairy OUD. Craving chocolate, but watching your
