If you’re like most people, tax season is not your favorite time of year. It can be stressful, frustrating and costly! Software packages can make the process easier, but if you’re not a numbers person, you can easily make a mistake and end up either paying too much tax or getting a smaller refund than you should.

Professional accountants can get stressed this time of year as well, with clients who hand them shoeboxes full of receipts that they must now go through and organize. This can take hours, and while they get paid for it, can be a frustrating process.

So is there an answer to the stress and frustration of tax season? Yes – cookies! The Black and White Cookie Company can help ease your anxiety about the crazy world of taxes.

About Black and White cookies

The Black and White Cookie Company offers an array of handcrafted cookies, with a fresh cake-like texture and just a hint of lemon. Then they are iced with a mouth-watering mix of chocolate and vanilla fondant. These have been New York’s favorite cookie for more than a century. If you don’t live in the Brooklyn area, you can order cookies online to experience the superior taste they offer.

Relieve Stress

Whether you’re just gathering your tax records together to give to your accountant, or you are doing them yourself, the process can be extremely stressful. Not only can it be difficult to find the time to do it all, but all those numbers can make even a mathematician want to go screaming from the room. When these moments threaten to overtake you, sit back, grab a cup of tea (or something stronger) and sink your teeth into one of the best-tasting cookies in the world. When you order cookies by the dozen, you can keep them on hand for the entire tax season.

Give to your accountant

If you’re one of those people who hands their accountant a shoe box filled with miscellaneous receipts W-2s, and investment receipts, then you might need to give them a cookie or two so they can handle their own stress levels when doing your taxes! Think of it as a peace offering. These New York cookies are a great way to say, “I appreciate all you do for me.” Just be prepared to do the same thing again next year!

Give to yourself as a reward

When you buy traditional cookies online, you can order as many or as little as you like. They come nicely packaged and fresh, so you can enjoy them anytime. Give yourself these treats as a reward for getting your taxes done. Tell yourself that you can’t have any until you’ve completed the process. Whether that means giving your records to your accountant or doing it yourself, you’ll have the motivation you need to get things done.

These black and white cookies may not be able to give you a bigger refund or organize your receipts for you, but they can give you the break and stress-relief you need during this ‘taxing’ season.

When it comes to finding the best company to buy black and white cookies from, there are a few things which you will need to ask yourself first. Yes, they are available at a number of stores all around town, but if you are the type of person who isn’t satisfied with anything but the best then there are three things which you will need to do before placing an order with a black and white cookie company.

You would obviously want to use someone who has been in business for years and pays extraordinary attention to detail. You should always visit a bakery personally and sample what they have to offer before placing any large orders. Now, let’s take a look at a few of the other questions which you need to answer before choosing a cookie company.

The Bakers?

A professional bakery will have professional bakers with years of experience behind them. They will be able to prepare the tastiest of cookies, using only the finest of ingredients. Their team should be able to exhibit a fine technique for preparation as well as the necessary artistic skills to delight not just your taste buds but your eyes as well. If they have a portfolio, go through it. But you should be most interested in what’s on display in the bakery. After all, you can’t judge how good a cookie tastes by simply looking at it in a picture right?


The next question you need to ask is the type of service you are looking for? Do you need a large batch of cookies overnight? Do you have a few days or weeks to prepare? How many cookies do you need? These are the questions you will need to answer so that you can choose a company that can satisfy your needs. You should be upfront with them regarding what you’re looking for and they should pay attention to what you are saying and offer any recommendations to improve on your idea. They should be able to respond immediately to your requests during the planning stage too. If they take a couple of days to get back to you on something, you won’t really be able to rely on them for an on-time delivery now will you?


It is advisable that you properly research all of the bakeries nearby and put together a list of the top three. You should then begin an in-depth comparison of all three establishments. One of the most important things which you should compare at some point is their experience. How many years have they been making cookies for? If they are less than a year old, you would be better off looking to some other company. There is no better way of confirming the quality of an establishment than by learning the number of years it has been in business for.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time you started putting your list together. You wouldn’t want to choose the wrong cookie company now would you?

Could it be how amazing they taste, or could it been that they have been around for nearly a century? Whatever it is, we are here to give you a brief glance at the history of the black and white cookie.

How Long Have These Cookies Been Around

One thing people love about the Black and White Cookie Company is that they have a long-standing history and story connected with the New York area. In the late 19th century, these cookies were created in up-state New York in an Austrian bakery. That means the people of New York and East Coasters have been able to enjoy these cookies for over 100 years. As the company grew and became even more popular they branched out to not only be sold in store, but also allow people to shop and order cookies online as well. That way everyone has a chance to enjoy these perfect century old cookies.

What Do the Cookies Taste Like?

Do you battle with the struggle of having to choose between sweet vanilla and creamy chocolate? Well battle no longer! These delicious cakes like cookies feature both chocolate and vanilla fondant top. That way anyone who chooses to try them gets the best of both worlds. However, that’s just the topping of the cookie. The cookie itself is enough to make any mouth water.

These cookies have been quoted being called “the real thing”. Why though? Because these cookie are all made by hand by bakers that have been doing it for years. They are made completely kosher, with no preservatives, Tran’s fats, or corn syrup. That way you know you are eating all natural.

What makes these cookies even better? They have a cake like texture with a subtle lemon flavor that compliments the chocolate and vanilla fondant perfectly.

How Can You Taste These Cookies

After you have ordered your cookies, gotten them in the mail and ready to eat them your only issue you will be faced with is how, Chocolate first, vanilla first, or maybe you should just start in the middle and enjoy both flavors at once. No matter how you choose, you won’t regret spoiling yourself with these rich long-standing cookies.

As we reach mid-August, there’s a lot of talk about back to school and Fall, but we say, not so fast…summer is far from over. There is still plenty of summer left in 2015, and we have a few ideas on how you can make the most out of it.

Summer Concert Series – Check your local paper’s entertainment section for a list of summer concerts going on in August. Most towns and cities have summer jazz, folk, classical, rock and other music festivals held in parks, outdoor concert halls, farmer’s markets and more. Many of them are free and make a perfect summer night of listening under the stars.

Outdoor Theater – Theater companies regularly have a Theater in the Park summer series, and what better way to experience theater than outdoors, your favorite wine, cheese and some Black and White Cookies? Which brings one to wonder, if Black and Whites were available during Shakespeare’s time, would the scene have included a Black and White instead of a skull, and the line have gone, “To Black, or not to Black?” That is the question indeed.

Art Walks – This is a fun and friendly way to check out the local art scene in your area. Many local galleries participate in “First Fridays” or “First Thursdays,” they open their doors after hours and encourage the public to experience art. While you won’t be able to bring food into the galleries, having some Black and Whites on hand is a great way to keep energized. And, quite the visual statement as well.

Local History or Walking Tours – All towns have a story to tell, and yours is probably no different! Google your town name and “walking tours” to see what’s available in your area. You might even discover your town has a few local “haunts” with a ghost tour!

Get Active – Take advantage of the still long days to get moving! Google your neighborhood or town and add bike routes, or walking routes, so see the best trails in your area. If you have rivers or ponds close by, try kayaking, canoeing or paddle boating. Be sure to bring along a few Black and Whites for refueling!

Camping – Use the slightly cooler weather as an excuse to pitch a tent and build a campfire. Since peak season is over, there is more likely to be camping slips available in the most ideal locations. Or, go it on your own! Either way, you can enjoy a few Black and Whites with your s’mores while communing with nature.

Have a Cookout – Have one last cookout with friends, coworkers or if you’re feeling really ambitious, organize a block party!
