1. Mom was right. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Sure, it’s an ugly bag. But it’s what’s on
the inside that counts, right? And what’s on the inside of The Ugly Bag is a half-pound of
small, crisp, ridiculously good cookies. Oh, and of course, they’re chocolate chip.
2. Some of the rumors are NOT true. You do NOT need to be a celebrity, professional
athlete or rich to get Ridiculously Good Cookies.
3. Some of the rumors ARE true. You can’t buy them in stores. You can’t get them on
Amazon. You can only get them if you know someone who knows someone. Or if you go

4. Finally, these cookies were conceived and produced in the USA, baby!
