Share Culture cookies National Cookie Day thin mints are overrated There's seemingly a holiday for everything these days, and Monday gives us a pretty great celebration: National Cookie Day 2017.  Most people don't need a reason to chow down on cookies, but there are plenty of businesses offering deals to help get everyone into the Cookie Day spirit. Here's a rundown of offerings: -Insomnia Cookies:  Anybody who makes a purchase in one of their stores gets a free traditional cookie, which includes chocolate chunk, double chocolate chunk, peanut butter, M&M, snickerdoodle, sugar, oatmeal raisin, double chocolate mint and white chocolate macadamia nut. Keep up with this story and more by subscribing now -Cinnabon: The chain is debuting a new treat called the Cookie BonBite, which is a bite of Cinnabon inside a chocolate chip cookie. Customers who buy the new product will get a free side of milk.  -Nestle Toll House Cafe: All you've got to do is stop in and get a free regular cookie at participating locations. -Whole Foods: The supermarket is giving customers 50 percent off the cookie bar. -Mrs. Fields: The first 400 customers to show up at each location will get a free, regular-sized chocolate chip cookie.  -Great American Cookies: The chain is giving away one chocolate chip cookie per person. Free cookies are the best cookies, obviously. But if you have to choose what kind of cookie to snag, then things get a bit more complicated. Newsweek is here to help. Below, we've ranked a baker's dozen of the most famous cookies, from crummy to delectable. 13. Butter cookies (or cookies you get in tin containers): These are effectively filler and don't taste like anything. What a waste of a cookie. 12. Macaron: You don't actually like these pillows of fluffed sugar; you're a child being fooled by bright colors.  11. Thin Mints: Hardly a cookie. Rather, it's an overgrown version of the chocolate discs that hotel maids leave on your pillow. Kindly get that out of here.  10. Peanut butter: A fine cookie, except when they're dry. 9. Oatmeal raisin: I understand people hate raisin cookies, but maybe grow up a little bit.  8. Tagalongs: Creamy peanut butter inside chocolate.
