Every Walk of Life: Cahootz

Long walks on the beach just wouldn’t be the same without a Cahootz cookie to share with your sweetheart. So, throw on your flip flops, grab your surfboard, and dive in to this classic cookie with a wild name. Crunchy macadamia nuts and delicate white chocolate interweave to create a tropical cookie with a hint of savory sweet flavor. Its understated look may fool a casual cookie fan but our quality ingredients are sure to satisfy a true connoisseur. We’re proud to use Barry Callebaut white chocolate which means you’ll be tasting fine Swiss chocolate in every bite. Cahootz cookies are a dream-come-true for those that long for beach life and the soothing sound of waves crashing on the shore. It’s a delicious reminder of our laid-back, beach bum lifestyle here in Santa Cruz. If you’re looking for a quick escape, then Cahootz is the cookie for you.

A Day in the Life – of Our Sales Manager, Brenda


BiRite, a foodservice distributor in the South San Francisco Area (Brisbane to be exact) recently had their 11th annual golf tournament at the Peninsula Golf and Country Club. Our sales manager, Brenda, was in attendance handing out our cookies to all the participating golfers – well, that’s what she went there to do! Check out the sequence of photos below – the pictures say it all…


#1 - All Set and Ready to Go.








#2 - Wind damage. Crash. Feels like a Monday.









#3 - The Weapon.








#4 - The Boys Taking Away the Body from the Crime Scene.








#5 - The Country Club's Clean-Up Crew







#6 - Squirrel Enjoying our Cahootz! He is partial to this cookie. All natural. Speaks for itself. And some companies need talking geckos. 😉









It’s a cookie explosion!

Just in time for the 4th of July weekend, we’re rolling out a brand new cookie: Cherry Bomb! Our Cherry Bomb is a buttery sugar cookie punctuated with bursts of dried Montmorency cherries. The retail store is lighting, oops, I mean baking the first Cherry Bombs right now and will keeping the cookie explosion going all summer long.

To add to the excitement, we are happy to announce that starting this Friday, July 2nd, Cahootz (white chocolate & macadamia nuts) and MacChunk (semi-sweet chocolate & macadamia nut) will be rejoining our cookie family. Earlier this year the price of macadamia nuts rose from $2.99/lb to $6.82/lb (a 128% price increase!). Try as we might, we were unable to source any high quality macadamia nuts at a sustainable price and were forced to temporarily discontinue these two cookies from our line. Now, a new crop of macadamia nuts has become available and we’ve finally sourced some quality nuts at a reasonable price. We’re all excited to see these yummy cookies back in our store where they belong and we want to thank our loyal Cahootz and MacChunk fans for their patience and understanding.

Cahootz, MacChunk, and Cherry Bomb? Now that’s an explosion of deliciousness if I ever saw one.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
