The Finer Cookie of Montreal, Quebec, earns Best Overall for its well-curated variety of unique, beautifully-crafted cookies. While most cookie companies narrowly focus their attention on variations of the drop cookie, The Finer Cookie’s collection draws from the entire cookie spectrum, featuring artisanal versions of the Milano, the macaron, stamped shortbread, and beijinho.
Where others emphasize their cookies’ massive size or indulgent ingredients, The Finer Cookie showcases refined taste and modern elegance. Flavors like salty sesame dark chocolate chip, molé, and gluten-free flourless peanut butter are innovative yet restrained. Items such as orange truffles, maple madeleines, and peppermint patties add just the right touch of variety to a custom box.
Ordering is straightforward. You can choose from among four different gift boxes, each containing a pre-selected array of two dozen cookies, or create your own half dozen box. You can even select the color of your packaging from several attractive options. The Finer Cookie ships Monday through Wednesday to Canada, and the U.S. Shipping is free on purchases over $75.
Love ooey-gooey, stuffed cookies? Duchess Cookies of New York is your spot. Many of the company's more than two dozen flavors ooze with a delicious filling. Most Duchess cookies are meant to be served warm, so they're baked 80% of the way. For quality assurance, the cookies are then shipped out the very same day, arriving just in time for you to consume their heavenly, fresh-from-the-oven texture.
Committed to the stuffed aesthetic, Duchess doesn't shy away from indulgence with cookies weighing between four and five ounces each. Fun and colorful original flavors include cookie monster, unicorn, strawberry lemonade, galaxy, cinnamon toast crunch, and butterscotch maple bacon crumble.

Bang Cookies is here to prove that organic can be intense and outrageous. The company's cookies are big, gooey, and in your face.
Bang Cookies fall into four categories: deluxe, classic, stuffed, and boozy. Deluxe cookies are packed with tons of mix-in ingredients for flavors like rocky road and kitchen sink. Stuffed cookies feature gooey centers of jam, caramel, and peanut butter. Classic includes all the chip variations, from macadamia white chocolate chunk to triple chocolate.
Boozy means whiskey, of course: The hard stuff with the most swagger is in keeping with Bang's emphasis on attitude. Where others would give you the snickerdoodle, Bang offers the cinnamon whiskey crackle—only if you're at least 21 years old. If you're underage, you can enjoy massive cookie cakes and bottles of organic milk.
While cookies cost between $4.50 and $6, cookie cakes cost $45 or $60. You have the option of ordering cookies individually to create a custom assortment—bang ships nationwide via USPS Priority Mail, arriving in one to three days on average. Overnight service via FedEx is also available. Bang offers free shipping on orders of 12 cookies or more.
It's 1 A.M.; you just got home from your shift. You hit the couch, and all of a sudden, a cookie craving strikes. It seems like just the thing you need to help relax you for the night. But you can't go out again, and you're not in the mood to bake a batch at this hour.
Enter Insomnia Cookies. Most locations deliver until 3 A.M., and with over 150 locations and counting, your town might house one of the brand's stores. But if you don't have a local Insomnia, you can order cookies from your smartphone with Insomnia's cookie app—they ship nationwide.

For shipping, Insomnia offers a well-rounded menu of pre-selected and customizable assortments that arrive in 1-2 days via FedEx.
Operation Cookies is a company founded on the comforting power of cookies. While her then-boyfriend (now husband) Paul was in the military overseas, Angie sent over 20 giant care packages packed with her homemade cookies. That's how Operation Cookies was born, and that ethos of sending love is still in its DNA.
Operation Cookies focuses on the classics—those cookies that remind you of home and hearth—like M&M chocolate chip and Reese's Peanut Butter chip, plus holiday and seasonal variations and special packages for occasions like Valentine's Day.
True to its founding spirit, the company also has a charitable component. Every month, Operation Cookies makes monthly donations to a range of veterans' organizations, such as the Fisher House Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project. Through Operation Cookies' site, you can even send treats to military members to show appreciation for their service.
Cookies are sold in boxes as small as a half dozen and come individually wrapped. Operation Cookies ships throughout the U.S. and all military bases, Army Post Office (APO), and Fleet Post Office (FPO) addresses. Shipping times range from two to seven days and longer for overseas.
