March 14th through the 20th is MS Awareness Week and people all over the country will be recognizing it in their own local way.  Join as we help the National Multiple Sclerosis Society by purchasing our special Orange & White Smiley Cookies. $2 from every dozen sold, of these special cookies will be donated to the MS Society.

The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn’t.

They help each person address the challenges of living with MS through our 50-state network of chapters. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.

People all over the nation are coming together to share, educate and build awareness about what multiple sclerosis means to them.

This post is another deviation from the normal cookie tradition post, because it’s not really about cookies.

It’s about taxes. (I know … ewwwww)

Tomorrow is Tax Day, and if any of you are like me, we’re frantically looking for that last W2 form and wondering why H&R Block can’t find a way to fit us in right under the wire. It’s hectic, it’s stressful, and it’s silly all at the same time.

I have some advice for you. Calm down. Eat a cookie. (I guess this post really is about cookies…somehow everything comes back to cookies.) But seriously, here are 5 reasons why eating a cookie will help you feel better about taxes.

  1. Did you know that sugar and carbs release serotonin which is the chemical in your body that makes you feel better? Comfort food is called comfort food for a reason: because it makes you feel better even when you’re stressed.
  2. Taking time out to do something frivolous (like eating cookies) will give you a chance to distance yourself from whatever frantic task you’re dealing with right now. It might even give your mind a chance to relax enough to remember that you stuck that W2 form in an envelope and put it on the mantle so you wouldn’t loose it.
  3. Tired? Need a burst of energy? One sugar high, coming up! Everyone always talks about how awful sugar is and how terrible calories are, but there are times when they totally come in handy. For instance, when you’re trying to stay awake after working on the most tedious task imaginable and it’s almost done…
  4. Cookies are a great distraction for children who have lost patience with their parent of choice who has no time for them at this very moment. Hide some cookies around the house and let those kids have a nice scavenger hunt. My mother used to do this for us, and though I don’t usually condone using sugary treats to bribe children, there are some times when it’s totally necessary.
  5. Reward yourself. You did it. It’s 12:01 AM and you’re just driving away from the post office box after checking 8 times to make sure that the envelopes all had stamps on them. Congratulate yourself on a job well done with a cookie that reflects the smile on your face. Then go to bed.

As a lover of all things cookie, I submit these reasons to you.  And what’s more, is jumping on board. Even though we can’t do your taxes for you, we want to make you feel good anyway!  We’re offering a Tax Day discount of $10.49 for a dozen Smiley Cookies.  Just click here and cash in on your reduced price smiley cookies. Good luck everyone!

Rarely is a company mascot also a delicious cookie. Yet what better mascot could a family oriented restaurant ask for? Since 1986, the a round, soft, buttery, rich delicious Smiley Cookie has been the happy face of Eat’n Park.

Even more than that, the Smiley Cookie has become a symbol of the ethos of Eat’n Park. We pride ourselves on being a community oriented business.

The Smiley Cookie Cruiser and Team Smiley make frequent appearances at community and charity events distributing smiley cookies and laughs to kids in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Every year, over 200,000 cookies are contributed to local non-profit organizations.

Smiley Cookies For Every Occasion!

Much like the restaurant, the Smiley Cookie has become a household phenomenon. Every child who has been to an Eat’n Park knows that their meal will be followed by this smiling confection. College kids and members of the armed forces get boxes of comfort cookies that are more than just a taste of home. In fact, over 10 million cookies are baked each year!

In the beginning, Smiley Cookies were baked and given as free treats to kids under 10 who ate at Eat’n Park. This is still very much the case, but they are now also a featured menu item as well. Though our classic round Smiley Cookie is our most famous face, the cookies have taken many forms over the years:

There’s a cookie for every occasion! From weddings to Halloween, we have cookie for that. We offer the option to customize your own cookie with any number of color combinations.

The official Home of the Smiley Cookie

We here at Eat’n Park thought it was about time that our icon had its own home online. This site will be devoted to reaching out to our community. You can expect lots of interactive posts, friendly competitions, discount offers and great stories about how Smiley Cookies bring happiness to people every day. We can’t wait to hear from you!
