Getting Baked in Baltimore

Berger cookies are a Baltimore thing... despite growing up just forty miles down I-95, I'd never tasted one until last year. Now I'm hooked, because really, what more do you want out of a cookie than an inch of fudge frosting on the top? The factory feels like a sugar sauna; the floors are slick with chocolate and there are guys in white aprons scooping massive handfuls of margarine and corn syrup into industrial mixers that could be older than they are. Take a deep breath... yummmmmmmmm.....
