There are plenty of delicious sweets and desserts that people love but the cookie is arguably the most popular. Today is National Cookie Day so feel free to turn into a big cookie monster by getting in on some great deals on your favorite cookies.

Cookies are one of the best sweets out there for many reasons. They come in a large variety of flavors so everyone can have their favorite and they are small and can be eaten with one hand. Plus, you can throw them in a little bag in your purse and have a quick sweet when you're on the run. This is also known as me this past Sunday at brunch, pulling chocolate chip cookies out of my purse and handing them out to friends. Safe to say that I'm a big fan of cookies, especially chocolate chip, so this is a holiday I can't wait to celebrate. In case you wanted to grab a cookie or two to celebrate, here are some businesses that are offering special deals or freebies for National Cookie Day:
