Where is Ben? the cookie man

I told the counter man I had traveled 8,000 miles for a cookie.
There was a blank stare…………
Was it my accent?
Was it the fact I did not say kilomoters?
Was it because he thought I was just another crazy?   
Ben’s cookies.
I always visit Convent gardens and 2 years ago after a long absence I returned.    There was a VERY large crowd/line at one shop.  A shop so small only 2 patrons could enter, belly up to the counter and try to select 
what treasure they would buy or how many.
Across from a cupcake store is Ben’s Cookies.
they were too busy to talk, they are always busy but you can find their info on line, just like everything else.
The fresh, warm out of the oven cookies are large and larger.   You select and then they are weighed to obtain the cost.
Try to buy just one!  Just try it.  
I may become a cookie expert just to find out if there is a better cookie anywhere.
so far my favorite is white chocolate chip…..and yours?
from their web site:
We have been making cookies since 1983 and selling them through our stores since 1984.
Our original store in Oxford’s Covered Market is still baking cookies every day. Ben’s was founded by Helge Rubinstein, author of The Chocolate Book and many other publications and an ardent chocoholic! Our cookies are sold by weight and can be bought individually or packaged in bags, boxes and tins, each bearing the logo created for us by Quentin Blake, the well known artist and first ever children’s laureate.
Ben’s Cookies currently has ten stores and will open a few more soon, so please visit us here again for more news.
