If there’s one thing that kids (and adults) like it’s cookies. So, who better to make some of the best cookies ever than an actual kid? That’s exactly what 12-year-old Cory Nieves from Englewood is doing with his Mr. Cory’s Cookies.
Starting at just 6, Mr. Cory as he’s known, wanted to buy a car because he hated taking the bus to school and decided sell hot cocoa to raise the money. His mom Lisa suggested he save the money for college and the business soon expanded into lemonade and cookies. After testing different recipes, the mother-son-duo eventually landed on the perfect chocolate chip cookie that was all-natural and organic.
The cookies became so popular, they started coming up with other concoctions and now have Double Dark, Healthy Melty, Lemon, Madagascar, Oatmeal Raisin, Sugar and White Chocolate Chip cookies. Not only that, the pre-teen has also worked with brands like Barney’s, Bloomingdales and Citibank, and been featured on TV shows like Good Morning America.
And good news for you! You can now get the scrumptious snacks and meat the entrepreneur himself as he’s doing a series of pop-up events at local Whole Foods Markets. Head to Ridgewood Whole Foods on Saturday, Whole Foods in Paramus on Nov. 5 and Whole Foods Closter on Nov. 19 from noon to 4 p.m.
In the meantime here are some cookie pics to whet your appetite.
