Humble Crumble
Here's where to get your cookie fix.
By Amanda Rock

When I tell people I'm addicted to gas-station cookies, they think I've lost my mind, or they flat-out don't believe me. Who can blame them? Gas stations aren't known for fine food. Until now.

With tempting sugar cookies dressed in colorful frosting, and classics like chocolate chip and oatmeal, My Cookie Fix (multiple locations, mycookiefix.com)has what you're craving. No preservatives or artificial flavors here—only goodness made with real sugar, butter and cream cheese. Using a treasured family recipe, Karissa Peterson founded the company inside a Chevron gas station located in Draper. The cookies sold like hotcakes, and Peterson knew she was on to something. My Cookie Fix now sells at over 70 gas stations throughout northern Utah. At $1.79 a pop, you can afford to live large, or at least buy yourself a top-shelf cookie now and then.

My guilty pleasure is the sugar cookie, and theirs are feather-light, melt in your mouth and come in a variety of delightful flavors—truly the best I've tasted. Here are my three favorites:

My Cookie Fix’s - coconut crème cookies - GRANT HANSEN
  • Grant Hansen
  • My Cookie Fix’scoconut crème cookies

I had to rethink everything I knew about gas-station food after my first bite into the coconut crème. It wasn't the cloying, fake flavor I was expecting. The texture is heavenly and the flavor unique. A light dusting of coconut crumbles atop the frosting add visual appeal and true coconut flavor.

The orange cream is a dream. Its vibrant orange frosting is eye-catching and the genuine citrus flavor is just as intense. Speckles of orange zest in the frosting will make you forget you're eating a cookie. Just kidding—but, really, this flavor bomb will blow your mind.

The traditional sugar cookie is a cute flower decorated with white frosting and a pretty pink center. Perfectly moist and simple in flavor, it's made with the best ingredients. The frosting is light and fluffy, and not too sweet. You can't not appreciate the mad skill that goes into these blissful baked goods.

Other noteworthy cookies include the strawberry cheesecake, snickerdoodle and the old-fashioned. But ultimately, you can't go wrong with anything from My Cookie Fix—they're all delicious. The next time you're in a gas station, look for the coveted cookie case and get ready for the incredulous looks when you explain that you're addicted to a gas-station cookie.
