White House Cookie Kit
“We the People of Trader Joe’s, in order to form a more perfect Cookie Kit...” Okay, okay, we know that’s not how the original goes, but this rewrite embodies our attitude when we decided to frame yet another holiday cookie kit, exclusively for Independence Day: the Trader Joe’s White House Cookie Kit.
We took the idea of a traditional gingerbread house and did some gerrymandering—the kind without political ramifications—to create the perfect patriotic celebration. Gingerbread didn’t seem like the best summer cookie flavor, so we made the pieces of this house with 100% nonpartisan vanilla cookies, crafted, of course, by impartial Canadian cookie makers. White and green frostings will help hold your 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue cookie together and allow you to replicate its perfectly manicured lawn.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t give this White House model the 6 floors, 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 8 staircases, and 3 elevators that its look-alike boasts, but we did provide lots of red, white, and blue sprinkles and candies for decorating! Both adults and children alike will delight in recreating one of the most recognized and revered buildings in this nation.
If enough of you vote for our White House Cookie Kit (with your dollars, that is) we just might carry it for four more years. We’re selling each 33 ounce White House Cookie Kit for the democratic price of $3.99. No promises this will be our last cookie kit. We have always liked Groundhog Day...
