Why, Lakota Bakery, Why?

Is it not enough that Lakota Bakery on Mass Ave. in Arlington Heights makes those deceptively simple yet so very delicious, buttery, and rich, cookies (including my favorite, the mocha sandwich)? It's tough enough to be tempted by their tasty goodness. But now they've gone and added the Lakota Bar, which is sort of the everything bagel of bar cookies. Coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, etc., etc. all wrapped up in one sizable chewy square. When temptation costs $1.50, what mortal can resist?

You're a walking advert, aren't you?!

For those cookies, oh yes. And I am happy to spread the word to my fellow Bostonians! If you ever make it here from London, I will be more than happy to treat you to a dozen cookies of your choice. (Hint: get at least a few of the sandwich kind!)

Now you've done it! I purposely avoid Lakota because I don't need the extra calories. ...but while reading your post I could practically smell the place!

Their coconut macaroons with dark chocolate have always been my favorite, but these bars sound great!

I for one (of 12?!) am very happy that you're advertising Lakota Bakery and other local joints. These places need (and deserve!) our business. Who wants another chain?

Darn you, David! Now you have to go and mention the chocolate-covered coconut macaroons! And before breakfast, no less!

And thanks for the support. I don't think of it as advertising so much as a way to spread the calorie-induced guilt around!

Actually, I like the coconut macaroons with the lump of dark chocolate in the center, NOT the ones covered in chocolate--they have an odd taste of some sort of liqueur or extract.

Hmmm... not sure I've tried those. But obviously, I'll have to now. It's the law!

Thanks for the tip!

I adore the mocha sandwich cookes. ADORE them! Good to find a fellow fan. Let's spread the word!
