Our cookie dough is made using our secret recipe in small batches using simply pure ingredients. We never use an artificial flavor or preservative of any kind.
Our cookies are best eaten within 5 days of receipt at room temperature. Never put cookies in refrigerator. Left over cookies can be frozen for up to 6 months. We suggest you pop one cookie in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds for a delicious fresh baked taste.
We offer ground shipping on the east coast, which should arrive within 1-3 business days, and express delivery from 1-3 days. Pickups are available at our retail location at Reading Terminal Market in Center City, Philadelphia, PA or our bakery in East Falls, Philadelphia, PA.
The cookies are baked and shipped from our small batch bakery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Our packing slip includes only the recipient’s name, address, and cookie selection. All shipping labels list Famous 4th Street Cookie Co as the shipper. You have the option of including your name on the complimentary Gift Card at checkout, but this feature is optional.
Our lowest priced product is our Treasure Gold Gift Boxes for $19.95 plus shipping charges.
All our products are produced in a facility that handles tree nuts, peanuts, and dairy. Our machines are thoroughly cleaned between production of each batch of cookies.
Currently, our only nut-free assortment is the American Classic, which features our famous Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Sugar, and Snickerdoodle cookies. You can also select a box or tray containing a single flavor without nuts or select various nut-free cookies with your own Custom Assortment.
All cookies that contain peanuts and/or tree nuts are clearly labeled as such in their name.
We do not currently have any gluten free, vegan or sugar free options.

Yes. Local Deliveries in Center City Philadelphia can be made on weekends for an additional charge. All other deliveries are made through UPS. Currently, UPS does offer Saturday deliveries in many locations – approximately 70% of the continental US – for an additional charge. If UPS offers Saturday shipping in your recipient’s area it will appear as an option at checkout.
UPS does not ship or deliver on Sundays.
Because we rely on third party companies to complete our shipments we cannot personally guarantee a shipment. UPS has some levels of service where they guarantee delivery – if it does not arrive in time, the shipping charges are refunded.
We suggest sending your gift to a business address where a signature can be obtained. If this is not an option, UPS can require a signature for additional $4.00 to ensure that your package arrives safely.
Orders received by 1:00pm will be shipped same day. Orders received after 1:00pm will be shipped the next business day unless there is a specified ship date. During our very busy holiday season, orders may take up to 48 hours to process.
