Cookies Feed Dweebs

Tuesday, February 9, 2010 17:31 GMT

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Geeks just love cookies.

Geeky Cookies is an online bakery that feeds sweets to dweebs in the nerdiest way possible, creating batches of custom cookies shaped like icons from gaming, tech, TV, and the Internet.

Nerds can nibble on the Star Trek Starfleet badge, Super Mario Bros. golden stars and mushrooms, and Pacman, among the dweeby delicacies.

Owner and proud geek Leo Diaz says, “I love all kinds of games, from Mario Bros. to World Of Warcraft. I also enjoy being creative and goofy in the kitchen with my baking. I realized that the combination of these two hobbies would be epic and started experimenting.”

The nerdy “nomz,” as the cookies are referred to, are delivered to a dork’s doorstep, so they never even have to leave their couch and video game controller to enjoy the treats.

Sadly, vegan or sugar-hating geeks can’t enjoy the cookies since they’re packed with sugar and eggs.
