Mmm, cookies! Chocolate caramel cookies, mini carrot cake cookie sandwiches, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink cookies — we’ll take ‘em any and every way. And though it may be hard to choose your absolute fave when it comes to the classic treat, there are some cookies that are just that much better than the others. That’s why the chic (and apparently cookie-lovin’) folks over at Cosmopolitan partnered with review site Yelp to compile a list of the most popular (i.e. best, yummiest and most drool-worthy) chocolate chip cookie in each state. Surely, this is the type of super important research media folks should be focused on. *slow clap*
