Loved since 1985, Cookie Time Christmas Cookies are made by Cookie Time – an iconic Christchurch-based family owned business.
Proudly made in New Zealand from real chocolate and real ingredients, t hese delicious bite-size cookies are a sweet festive gift or treat to share with friends, family and colleagues. Available in all your favourite flavours. Plus Gluten Free Chocolate Chip. All presented in vibrant Cookie Muncher collectible, reusable (and recyclable) buckets.
Christmas Cookies also support a cause that counts. To date close to $2 million has been raised for the Cookie Time Charitable Trust, supporting the Trust’s mission to help New Zealand kids discover their gifts – including making a significant difference for those with dyslexia.
Christmas Cookies are available online or from local sellers – tertiary students who run their own cookie-selling businesses in the seven weeks leading up to Christmas. The campaign gives these young entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to team up with an iconic Kiwi brand and gain invaluable business experience for future employment or other entrepreneurial ventures.
