Hunka Hunka Chocolate Love
Cafe 7 & Old School Bagel Co.
Chocolate Chip Cookie | Oklahoma City & Tulsa
WOWOWOWOWOW. That’s what you’re going to say when you find this hunk of a cookie. It’s huge, it’s fat, it’s chock-full of chocolate. That’s why I’ve dubbed this the “hunka hunka chocolate love.” (Please enjoy this Elvis pun.)
The chocolate chip cookie and friends sit right next to the cash register in all Cafe 7 and Old School Bagel Cafe restaurants. It’s like the managers know that once you see these cookies, you have to have one. It’s partially out of curiosity because you look at it and think, “Wow, that is huge. And it’s topped with a Hershey bar. This cookie is not messing around. But does it taste good?” The other part of the thought process is, “There is so much chocolate I have to have it now!!!” I think the latter is probably the more normal response. Either way, you just seem to find your hand floating up to the shelves and grabbing one to add to your meal.
For the size of this cookie, it is surprisingly chewy. There’s not a crisp piece of dough on this cookie. Speaking of dough, it tastes freshly baked and has a strong brown sugar sweetness. The chocolate chip cookie is dense, so you’ll want to share it with a friend (especially after you’ve enjoyed one of their delicious sandwiches or bagels). It’s topped with a bite-sized Hershey bar, so the only thing you and your cookie buddy will fight over is who got the half with the Hershey bar!
The Cookie Tour Stop
One of the best things about this cookie is that you can get it at multiple locations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. If you’re headed to the Cafe 7 in Downtown OKC, you’ll want to hop over to the Myriad Gardens to see the city’s most beautiful park or enjoy the patio at Flint (one of my personal favorites) with a cool glass of wine. The Old School Bagel Co. at Uptown 23rd is within walking distance to several local restaurants, bars, and shops - perfect for a Saturday stroll. You might even walk over to catch a show at the Tower Theatre. They’ve got touring shows and local bands playing most nights. They’ve also taken this renovated movie theatre back to its roots by showing cult classics and Indie films. Films I’ve seen here: Batman Returns and Ladybird. 10/10 would recommend.
While You’re There
You’ve also got to try the Reese’s Pieces cookie. It’s another cookie worthy of the heart eyes emoji—peanut butter dough filled with Reese’s Pieces and chunks of peanuts. It’s got the same density and softness as the chocolate chip cookie. This combo is mind boggling to me. My only question - can I have the recipe?
