I never thought I'd be baking cookies for a living but it turns out that I love it. After not working enough as an actress in Brooklyn (NYC), I started baking Thumbs in 2012 for friends and co-workers. Thumbs were actually (my mom) Barb's signature cookie growing up. She would often make them for many family and neighborhood occasions. In fact, waking up and rolling them with her was one of my fondest childhood memories. Who doesn't love making cookies from scratch as a kid?

I started experimenting with different flavors and packaging and now we are up to almost 15 Thumbs flavors. I'm now spreading the Thumbs love all over and we can't roll these things fast enough.

As our production has grown, I've decided to move Thumbs from Brooklyn, NYC back to Minneapolis, Minnesota. It's been a pretty warm welcome for such COLD state!! It's pretty fun to see Thumbs becoming a known brand. My next dream is a Thumb Bug! Yep. A purple VW Beetle with a white thumb print on the side! Keep your eyes open for it soon!

**Happy this year about:
Thumbs Cookies are proud to have been a part of the 2015 Grammy VIP Bags.

Thumbs Up,
Robyn
