Bang Cookies’ Second Jersey City Storefront is Now Open

Written by:

Most cookie lovers weren’t born with the name ‘Cookie Monster,’ but if you’re a Hudson County resident then most likely you’ve become one since discovering Bang Cookies. #Facts. And just in time for bikini season, downtown Jersey City is about to get a MAJOR dessert upgrade: Local favorite and all-organic cookie company Bang Cookies is opening a SECOND location in Jersey City — this one downtown at 128 Newark Avenue. We first reported on this in January of 2019 and now we’ve received word that Bang Cookies’ ribbon-cutting happened today, March 13th. Here’s what you need to know about this local cookie shop.

About The Opening

Formerly the Doyla space, the little shop now to be known as Bang Cookies was allegedly supposed to open in the spring of 2019, but as are many openings in Hudson County — it was sliiiightly delayed. As of January 2019, the owners had just solidified and signed the lease for the second cookie shop. In February of 2020, we received word that the shop would soon be opening, according to an inside source. Finally, we can now confirm that Bang has opened its second set of doors to the public today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

About Bang Cookies

bang-cookies-jersey-city

The OG brick-and-mortar of Bang Cookies is currently a brick-and-mortar in Jersey City Heights, which opened in 2017 after several successful seasons of farmers’ markets. The all-organic cookie company prides itself on all-natural ingredients, an insanely delicious taste, and the most moist — yes, it’s the only word that effectively conveys it, sorry not sorry — and cake-like cookies. Really, there is nothing that tastes just like it.

The first Bang Cookies shop is located at 1183 Summit Avenue, and that bakery and shop will stay open — with the addition of the 128 Newark Avenue shop on the pedestrian plaza downtown.

George Kuan started Bang Cookies in 2016 after realizing that there were no cookie shops that really perfected the organic, all-natural ingredients in a chunky, over-sized cookie. Before he went to the public and started promoting his cookies at farmer’s markets and the like, he literally spent years perfecting the perfect cookie recipe that was equal parts organic and decadent. They will legit melt in your mouth, promise.

Since then, Bang Cookies has grown an intense local {and national following — they’re shippable!} and was most recently touted for its stuffed cookies by the New York Times, saying, “The company’s new line of big, overloaded, chunky cookies has fillings. And they are delicious.” Fair enough {though we probably would have expanded more, as they are #lifechanging}.

^All organic ingredients FTW.

On the cookie menu are a variety of exquisite flavors, but Smore’s, Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk, and Kitchen Sink {crisp organic toffee, crunchy organic pretzels, rich organic chocolate} are top contenders. That being said, don’t take our word for it. You must try them for yourself.

Even if the mention of Bang Cookies doesn’t ring a bell to you thus far or downtown Newark Ave in JC feels too far away {but #judgingyou if that is the case}, just know that this is very good news.

There can never be too many cookie shops —especially the caliber of Bang — to bless Hudson County.
