You don’t look (or sound) like bakers. Can I trust that these cookies taste as good as they look?
We’re definitely not bakers, in any sense of the word. We don’t want to burn our business down, nor would we want to subject anyone to anything we might bake. That’s why we get our cookies from the real professionals. In fact, we’ve partnered with the best bakery in Calgary: Lakeview Bakery
. They’ve been crafting delicious baked goods for over twenty-four years and have mastered the ginger cookie.
Are ginger cookies the only cookies you offer?
Both Chomp a’Lomp founders Abagail and Eric are ginger—but don’t hold that against them. We are looking at offering more options for cookie designs and cookie types. If you don’t like ginger cookies, please send us an email to tell us your favourite kind of cookie.
You say four are topped with fondant. Doesn’t fondant taste bad?
We use only the best when it comes to our fondant, and we have to say it tastes pretty darn good! Not a fan of icing in general? No problem! Carefully remove the fondant, then dry it on top of your refrigerator for a few weeks. Once dry, simply drill a hole in the top, put it on a loop of string and make a necklace. You’re welcome for that. #lifehack
The cookies look too good to be true. How do you get the images on the cookies? Magic?
It’s nice of you to say our cookies look amazing! While we are huge fans of magic and all things Harry Potter, sadly we are Muggles. In lieu of magic, we use a state-of-the-art overhead food colour applicator, which, unlike magic, is approved by the CFIA. And don’t worry—the machine never actually touches the cookies, so there’s no chance of contamination between our Christmas and Hanukkah cookies.
OK, so it’s not magic, but how do I know that you aren’t decorating them in your kitchen at home?
We operate in an AHS-inspected food handling facility, dedicated solely to the preparation of Chomp a’Lomp cookies. No need to fill your head with nightmares about some random stranger’s dirty kitchen. We’re not strangers, we’re your friends!
I have special dietary restrictions. Is there anything you can do?
Unfortunately, we currently don’t have any offerings for those with dietary restrictions as we cannot ensure there won't be cross-contamination. But in the near future we hope to have some offerings for everyone. In the meantime, we are willing to ship you an empty box, guaranteed to be free of dairy, tree nuts, eggs, wheat, shellfish, soy, fish, peanuts and cookies.
