Dear Hot Box Cookies,

Let’s begin by establishing the fact that if I could sustain on cookies for the rest of my life, I think I would. At first, when the frozen yogurt place that used to be on Mass St. closed, I was very sad. But like a beam of sunlight, a cookie shop filtered through the sugary clouds and once again, I have a go-to place for treats during the day.

Cookies at Hot Box are warm and gooey with that fresh-out-of-the-oven taste. I haven’t tried all the flavors yet, but the chocolate varieties are top notch.

Love,
A

Don't bother reaching for these delectable delights, they're on a lazy Susan for your convenience.

There's a lot of yummy cookies on there, but my eyes are on those chocolatey ones up front.
