I have to recommend This Chick Bakes cookies.  They just started selling them at my local deli.  Some are labeled Gluten Free and some are not, so I was wary of cross contamination concerns. 

 

I e-mailed the company and got this back from one of the owners:

I think they may be largely in the NY metro area, but you can buy online at thischickbakes.com.  I had the cranberry white chocolate something or other and it was delicious.

 

Just wanted to put it out there - probably not for the super sensitive, but maybe for the rest of us!
