East coast people already know about Smiley Cookies of Pittsbugh, PA.


St. Patrick’s Day cookies from Smiley Cookies are a cult item for people from Pittsburgh, ask fans Jeff Goldblum, Michael Keaton, Dan Cortese, Mark Cuban, Donnie Iris and Amber Brkich (from Survivor)


Eat’n Park, a restaurant chain with more than 100 locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia introduced a sugar cookie with a raised smiley face design in 1985 and trademarked it two years later. The company now makes more than 12 million Smiley Cookies annually.

Pennsylvania’s Sen. Bob Casey brought Smiley Cookies to the White House Super Bowl party in ’08, and Congressman Jason Altmire (D-PA)  serves Smiley Cookies to visitors to his office in Washington, DC.

Even Pennsylvania reality TV mom Kate Gosselin packs them in her kids’ lunchboxes – all 8 of them.

The hand-iced Smiley Cookie is now available online at, and now they are selling their St. Patty’s cookies too.

The Lore of the Smiley Cookie is as follows: Pittsburgh Steelers fanatics and displaced Steelers’ fans across the world have long gone to great lengths to acquire and safely ship special Black and Gold Smiley Cookies to serve during games or to give a gift to a homesick Pittsburgher or PA native.

So it was an easy decision for the Eat’n Park to invest in launching an online store devoted to the product.  

Now, Smiley Cookies are delivered fast and fresh to all 50 states and to military personnel.  For St. Patrick’s Day, they are offering Shamrock Cookies, Six Shamrocks and Six Smiley Cookies, St. Patricks Day Cookie Gift Basket, Shamrocks & Smiley Cookies Gift Basket and 24 Shamrock Cookies and 6 Chocolates.

New Englanders and New Yorkers already know the quality and inventiveness of Larry Burdick and company.


LA Burdick chocolatiers use ethically sourced cocoa from Grenada and create seasonal chocolate and cookie gifts that are astounding.

Nothing goes together like chocolate and the smokey, complex notes of premium Irish Whiskey.


Their latest St. Patrick’s Day special includes a quarter pound limited edition Irish Whiskey Assortment – Irish Coffee Bonbons made from dark chocolate, coffee, cream and Irish Whiskey, coated in dark and white chocolate then sprinkled with ground coffee, together with Irish Whiskey Truffles and new Irish Cream Truffles dusted in cocoa powder – as well as 3 shortbread Shamrock cookies dipped in chocolate and an 8oz tin of dark hot chocolate.
